Very nice use of colour and light. Immediately the vibrant blues of the ice stand out from the landscape, creating so much impact. In comparison to the rest of the image which is relatively tame in terms of saturation, it only stands out even more, and I feel as if that element of vibrancy works very well in a natural scene.

However, the light is perhaps the most striking feature of this image, particularly because the landscape is in a very cold region; the way the light seems to glisten and reflect off the ice is simply beautiful and very captivating.
The whites and bright oranges seen in the landforms really add a refreshing level of dynamic, enhancing the overall image so much.

Not only does the light highlight the spectacular forms and enhance the impact of the colour, but paired with the water, it really conveys an upbeat atmosphere. It's almost as if some of the landscape is facing towards the light, giving that looking-into-the-sunset kind of atmosphere of relaxation, calm and serenity.
The lovely oranges of the tanned sky and the cool blues are definitely ideal colours to go along with this atmosphere.

Compositionally, I feel as if the scene only further heightens and works with the light.
The nearby iceberg seems to slowly decline the further it reaches towards the right, as does the main rock form; this structural trend reinforces the effect of the lighting making it all the more dynamic.
The uneven surfaces also add a distinctly natural feel to the image and spices it up quite a bit.

Again, simply superb use of colour and light, a simply beautiful scene.
Awesome work!
