Tribe of Circle by alexandre-deschaumes Tribe of Circle by alexandre-deschaumes
I'm still not sure about this one .. Difficult to choose between cold and warm white balance . there was the sun , with a halo and the ice on the beach , I've remove a bit of saturation as well . I'm curious about your opinion ..

This is the beach at Jokulsarlon . Iceland
I'm tried different exposure time to get the water coming towards me like this .. And just after this shot .. My lense 70-200 F4 L IS fell in the sea .. because of a big wave coming .. hmhm ..

so was the lens broken after the drop into the water or did it still work after drying? :O

anyways, cool shot! i especially love the mixture of textures; the smooth blending in the sky, those icy flat blocks, the hairy long exposured water and the combination between the stones in the left bottom corner (which look like stars in the nightsky) and the checked pattern right next to it (where the water moves back into the ocean)! cool.

L'objectif a survécu ? :/

J'aime beaucoup l'effet de l'eau qui arrive, elle prend l'apparence d'un pelage ou d'une sorte de fourrure, et le bloc de glace (quelle taille faisait-il ? Il à l'air immense!) ressemble à l'autel d'un dieu de la mer oublié...

Love the transparency of the ice block and the luminosity going trough this just a bit. There is a soft feeling that resort of this atmosphere!

I think the balance is great. It somehow looks delicious in the coloring. The iceblok is like a huge chrystal, and I like the way it's transparent. The movement of the water is also nice.

you say it´s the beach of Jokulsarlon? when i was there some years ago it was a lagoon... with only a tiny way towards the open sea... is it directly at the sea nowadays?
but great picture for sure!

here is what it looked like in 2001... [link]

There is something entirely Fascinating about this...
The blue ice is Amazing and the water Ethereal: But the light is what struck me first.
It is a strange combination of warmth & cold, and somehow suggests (to my mind, at any rate) that something is about to happen: it could be a captured scene from some eldritch epic...

Pardon my rambling! The point is, it is Marvelous! :heart:

I'm reall y sorry about your lens falling in the water but this picture came out AMAZING so I hope that helps. I really like this picture how it is but maybe you should trygoing for a colder white balance since the focal piont is the ice. I love how endless the ocean looks, I wish I could jump into this photo... *sigh* lol if only
