    Great depth of field. In the first shot, I think I focus a lot on the bolder on the ground for some reason and miss the best part your shot, the skyline. :)

    Thanks for the comment. Ha Ha unfortunately there used to be glaciers running through that area so it's pretty hard to find a shot without a dirty grat big boulder in it.:lol:

    They were all edited. They were taken around 2pm so the sky was quite bright. I did 2 RAW conversions for each pic, one for the sky and one for the foreground then combined them in photoshop using a layer mask. Nothing much apart from that just some slight dodging and burning and a bit of unsharp mask.
    I think #3 in my fav, I like the way the pool of water leads youe eye into the backround. I also like #6 if you look closely there are 2 Red Stags right on the top of the left had hill which you can see against the sky. I didn't notice thim untill after I took the shot then they ran off down the hill. I was made up you can see them in the pic, albeit very small.

    I have never been to Iceland but would love to go. I really like the look of the landscape there. BTW I am only living here in Scotland for another 15 weeks the I'm emigrating down to New Zealand! I should get some decent shot there I'd expect!

    I LOVE 3 and 5! The contrast, as well as the interest from front to back! Really nice!
