Stonemen built by the trekking tourists next to Gullfoss, the second largest waterfall of Iceland. Some months ago, I posted a picture of that stunning attraction.

PP work: levels, sharperning, crop, resize.

Hi Kristof,
Great composition of the stones, the overcast sky adds a nice overall mood to the photo. I feel that the foreground is a little oversharpened, almost looks like its been converted to watercolour or something. Looks patchy for some reason, but the rocks in the distance are sharp.


Hello Kristof! Mysterious place. Nice natural light and colours. Good capture. Original effect. Well done!

HI Kristoff
Like the eskimos they make good use of the stones.
Interesting pattern obviously meaning something important for them.
Good composition like the low shot against those dark clouds.

Nice sharp detail and beautiful colors of nature. Very pretty landscape and an interesting post. TFS

Well managed levels and colours, and good observation of this stone cairn in the middle of what looks like a harsh landscape. I can only assume that this is the height of summer - and still it looks challengingly bleak!
Nice work
