Cold but restful. I like the B+W treatment of the ice-covered boulders, even though I like the colours these usually have. The sky ties together the textures of the ice and the sea.

Nice. I wonder if a slightly different camera elevation might have worked better by avoiding the headland/island just being "touched" by the top of the snow/ice on the right-hand third? Either a clear space or a positive intersection might have done the trick.

Excellent tonal range, great texture and detail in the snow and the shapes compliment each other really well...cracking shot well done.

I like it, but I don't think the intensity of the foreground and the distant background combine well.  Since everyone gets an opinion, if it was my shot I would probably have shot from higher up and eliminated the horizon/background entirely. YMMV!

Beautiful images.  I think their full potential has not been realized in post processing.
