Frozen ridge by XavierJamonet Frozen ridge by XavierJamonet
This is an image taken during my last photography workshop in Iceland, june 2012. Here is a block of ice from the Vatnajökull icefield, deposed on the black sand beach of Jökulsarlon by the North Atlantic Ocean.
It was about 1am, during the infinite night glow of summer.

Jökulsarlon area, Iceland

Canon EOS 5D mkII - EF 16-35f2.8 L - Tripod - Lee nd grad filter

Okay, I am an amateur, so this next part of the comment that I am leaving may sound really stupid, but here goes: You have a richness here that I cannot get, though I have been trying for 8 years. It's the same type of effect I see in an Annie Lebowitz photo (the more recent ones done for Disney), if that makes any sense whatsoever. What is the secret. My photos cannot seem to create the depth with tone here that you have. I understand depth of field and all that, it's the color that I can't get, even if I up the saturation (It just looks weird). Any suggestions?

Excellent contrast. The gorgeous translucency of the ice is maintained the lighting is exceptional. Mist is an effective path for the eye to follow. Might consider eliminating the white ?houses or ?waves in the distance as they distract a bit from the central block of ice.

LOVE the fluid dynamics on this one...I have a wallpaper photo from a Windows theme on the arctic that is kind of the same thing: a time-lapse of water flowing out past ice. I agree that a little more cold white would make this photo better, but it's definitely a favorite of mine.

Oui, éventuellement un peu plus de contraste, et un peu plus de luminosité dans les tons clairs... Mais lŕ je voulais vraiment privilégier cette ambiance de clarté blafarde qu'on a durant la nuit estivale en Islande (qui plus est avec un ciel nuageux...). On va dire que l'image correspond ŕ 99% au fichier raw. D'une maničre générale, j'essaie de plus en plus de m'affranchir de traitements lourds (et chronophages!) sur l'ordinateur.
J'ai par contre quelques autres images en stock de cet endroit, qui correspondraient mieux ŕ tes attentes ;)
Amitiés
