Eerie. I love this, it's enchanting and mysterious at the same time. I love everything that's icy and cold and blue, and this is very very winter-like. I love the sky details, you can actually see the stars through the darkness. And the light reflecting on the ice, absolutely stunning. I like this light and shadow game that you made, it makes the image deeper, enigmatic. This ravished me even from the preview, the impact is strong and direct. It seems one of that landscapes from my dreams, the ones I imagine while listening to music, while reading fantasy books. This represents a magical kind of imagination. Very well done!

That is a really great composition.

I can see everything appearing, from sci-fi to fantasy elements. Whether you imagine a quest to Mordor, some futuristic explorers charting new territory, or a rebel base in hiding, nothing would look out of place here. Even better though, without those elements it turns into a still of nature, at peace with its own beauty, quite literally frozen in time.

While icey environments might be relatively easy to do in terms of color limitations, it certainly isn't easy to convey the feeling of coldness. And you have managed to do this here! Very well done!

The soft lighting with the blue hues and shades add to the overall intensity while I absolutely adore the sparkly glows in the foreground which is something you would see if light falls on misty ice particles!

The only way to improve this any further would be to add maybe a few more prominent stars in the sky, but it certainly is not necessary. Well done.

Another Nice One, Makes Me Think This Is How The World Was During The Last Ice Age.

Like How The Dark Blues Enforce The Felling Of Coldness.
