I haven’t posted anything in a while and I wanted to share some pics of my recent trip to Iceland. I will keep my best shots for later and I want to share first the ones I’m less convinced about. This shot was taken at around midnight in this mighty place that is Reykjanestá. Due to the limited duration of my trip I had to visit this spot at night (also to catch aurora…more to come soon).
In this shot I wanted to put more emphasis on the icy foreground but I’m not sure it is powerful enough. I like the pic mood since it well reflects the mystic atmosphere of that night with almost full moon. I’m not completely satisfied of the background but I was expecting exactly this by using a large aperture.
I could also have worked more in postprocessing but I wasn’t sure about the potential of the pic.
I’m really willing to read some of your comments and thoughts about this shot.
Thank you in advance.

I like the location and composition. The contrast is quite flat. I’m not sure if that was intentional on your part?

Hi Vincenzo, the contrast is indeed rather flat.
The bright foreground takes too much of my attention. I would burn that a bit.
The white dots in the sky look to me like dust, not stars so I would clone them out.
Something like this:

As others have said: too low contrast. I like Eriks edit.
