I like the large boulders, looks really rough. What would make this more interesting is maybe a (painted in) little stream right in the central gully, small and shiny.

I like this. Good feel. Has the fantasy look that all of Iceland has.

Ditto Dune's comments plus some ice and snow.

Looks good and like the suggestions here. I've been playing with some ideas; like, should I go for a close up or a panoramic view.

This instantly reminded me of Honister Pass in England's Lake District:

WM and terragen mash-up, need some additional erosion on the walls along the Fjord. Maybe a little less channel erosion on the verts as well .. Still lots to do yet

Yes, the erosion is a bit too much, but it's an interesting update.

Super stuff Danny!

Only thing that does not work for me is the single building. needs some other structures surrounding it as it it completely overwhelmed by the rest of the scene. But the rest of the scene is pretty remarkable!

Very good Danny. That cluster of activity adds much to the scene which already is a great point of view ...well done.

I agree with Michael. The front part (ships, travellers, huts, and the cloud in the distance) are the best parts, really great! But the castle is a bit over the top, IMHO.

Great sense of scale and the foreground is terrific.  Agree about the building.

Cheers Mike & Ulco, I will have a second look at it when I get some more free time. I certainly appreciate the extra eyes. Good luck to all that are entering. The 14th is approaching quickly
