(Just added you to my friends reading list based on gerisullivan
's mention plus recognizing your name; you may recognize mine as well.)
The iceberg is particularly cool (oops). Is it anchored by a rock in the middle that's covered with ice? Or is the black part due to something else?
Um, bird in the center autofocus spot, leading to the iceberg being cropped at the left? Or I sometimes wonder if we're losing valuable compositional options because of cynics like me. I very much like the water surface texture, so I'm happy that there's quite a bit of it (and have a hard time seeing how to crop it out without disaster ensuing; glad I like it!).
The black part of the iceberg is probably due to rocks rather than one rock, but I really don't know.
I was concentrating on the bird, and not looking around the frame enough. I'd like to see the missing corner of the iceberg, too, but we were passing by on the cruise ship. I'd love to go back in a kayak or a small boat of some kind, so that I could get right up to one of those icebergs and slowly go around it.
