When I see the "simplified" composition in this B & W, I also see what I have missed by not visiting Iceland. That can be rectified.

One of your best.

@RuneE: Thanks Rune - I had no idea I was going to use this photo and in this way until this morning but somehow it just came together as I worked on it and your comment comes less than an hour later.

So much to see and imagine about the people after this pic.

We have to look up in the Wikipedia for the location of Akureyri. We have only visited Iceland once almost 10 years ago and only stayed at Reykjavik. I like how you managed the color for this photograph.

I'd like to go to Iceland once! Well-chosen photo. I've seen your other photos too. They are all very good!

Eki in Bandung would be proud, he does this shot well. Definitely suited to a monochrome view. I don't think he is listening to her.

Typical afternoon athmosphere. Nicely taken.

I like this a lot - so many patterns, and great dappling of light and shade.

On behalf of the ABC team, thanks for joining the fun.
