  1. The immediate feeling this gave me was a flashed memory of Gustav Dore’s illustrations for the Ancient Mariner. Chill grey mystery. A fascinating treatment of what I am sure was an equally powerful shot in colour! I love how what are surely (?) reflections become instead what seems to be an outline of under water shapes. So intriguing. Packs a powerful psychological whump!

    1. I have to say, Barbara, that I didn’t think it was a very inspiring shot in the original. It was a dull day and a dull background of rocks and spruce trees. But I’m glad it invoked all this in its tinkered with version!

  2. I’m guessing this is some clever manipulation of an ice berg shot, but that’s only because I know where you live. (; The beauty of that illusion aside… having no info to go on, I’d most certainly see it as an abstract done in silver and/or tin. I’ll bet this is gorgeous blown up and framed. As it should be.

  3. Fab shot and post processing here, Elizabeth. Keeping the image in monotone creates an ‘edginess’ that speaks to both the awesome beauty of the ice berg, but enhances the sense of danger associated with it. Lovely, absolutely love. Hope this gets matted and framed and hung in a favourite place. It should be on the wall!

    1. Thank you, Cheryl – the credit is due to the iceberg itself, and samsung’s paper artist processing app.

  4. Such a creative treatment. I agree with the others — the greys give it a mysterious old-world feel, as if it’s illustrating a story about an impending ocean disaster or mystery. By eliminating colour, you encourage the viewer to focus on the shapes and shades and the tantalizing reflection. As in Barbara’s mostly monochrome shot this week, and Cheryl’s b&w, the focus here is on composition and shapes. Intriguing. I’d love to see the original iceberg shot to compare.

    1. Thank you, Allyson. The original was almost monochrome too, because of the fog, but not quite. Maybe it’s more dramatic this way.

  5. Oh my, I’m quite speechless with the beauty of this, Elizabeth. Your treatment of the scene gives it an ephemeral quality that leaves the viewer wondering exactly what she is viewing – I am guessing ice bergs?

    1. Such kind comments from all of you! It didn’t occur to me that it might not be obvious it was an iceberg – interesting!
