I was wondering How I could enhance this image:

One word: WOW! I simply love it!

As for improvements, only thing I can think of is maybe dodge the sky a little to make it brighter.

This is an excellent image.

I wish the iceberg were closer and shot with a wide angle but this is very well done.

I would not dodge the sky, I'd dodge the main iceberg by maybe 5-10% to make it pop harder against the water and the sky.

Hope that helps

I might try cropping a little of the top of the sky to effectively move the iceberg up so it hits the top third part of the image, but other than that, not much else to say...

Top class shot.

The ONLY thing I'd consider doing to that image is cropping a bit of the sky out to place the horizon above the centre. Other than that, it's dang near perfect!

Thanks for all the comments - I've tried the cropping alternatives - but am not satisfied with it.

It was taken in Greenland near Illulisat in the Disko Bay. Yes i was on a small boat :-)
I posted a few other on flickr - and will probably kick my own ass to write how nice and impressive that trip was.

beautiful image

Very beautiful, I would leave it as is.
I love how the smaller ice pices draw your attention to the big iceberg.
Print an enlargement and see how it looks.

Great shot and I don't even mind that the horizon is in the center. I especially like all the baby ice chips leading your eye up to the grandaddy iceberg. Well done.
