It's easy to see why you got all the comments and kudos!

It looks like a longer exposure, with the sharp foreground and what looks like a bit of water moving in and out. Creates terrific contrast of textures.

I was wondering if you'd tried a selective adjustment on the 'berg, and adding a little more contrast for a bit more dimensionality?

I found out a day ago that I just won a Gold award for this print at APPA's - some details about it on my Blog.  I am personally pretty thrilled as APPAS are judged by the print - not a digital submission. And that makes this kind of award pretty special for me since so many competitions these days are digital submission.
