While on a cruise from Copenhagen to New York, one of our stopovers was at Reykjavik, Iceland, where I managed spend the day on a photo tour with a bunch of other photo nuts from the cruise. Our guide was Mike Kissane of fStop Tours and one of our photo stops was at Kleifarvatn Lake about 40 or so minutes out of Reykjavik. It was a great day out where I spent most of the time talking to Mike and taking very few photos. This one was of one of the other tour participants taking her own photos of the very calm lake with the red rain jacket a bit of a standout.

What photographer doesn’t want to go to Iceland? The landscapes look like they practically take the picture themselves.

Wayne Jones was on the right track when included the red-jacketed figure of another photographer capturing the extraordinary mirror effect of Kleifarvatn Lake on what looks to have been a rather dull day.

I’m not so sure about the portrait aspect ratio though. I think this has more potential as a horizontal image.

A judicious crop would minimise that uninteresting foreground and effectively bring us closer to the subject.
