Twelve days, 6 accommodations, 4000 km by car, over 50 km hiking, over 2000 raw files. It can be said that there were adventures. Weather in Iceland - lots of winds, clouds and rain, and therefore many missed opportunities and locations planned for photography. I hope that all the effort is paid off...

Beautifully done. A tough assignment finding distinction and uniqueness when you're limited with rock and water as principal subjects. In my opinion, you succeeded wonderfully. Thanks for sharing.

I thought the choice of music was perfect for the presentation. For those of you who are looking for good background music for this style of imagery you might also consider the Windham Hill collection.

Rasica's editing skills are also a good example of "movement" when you watch the presentation. Zooming in, zooming out and tilting were all done with purpose. The timing and the movement for individual images are well chosen. For those of you who want to create a presentation using your images - you might want to study Rasica's presentation for reference.

Thank you!
I'm glad you recognized my effort and experience of making at first glance simple presentation of photography works.
This kind of presentation can be very effective if it is well produced and of course if the content is effective too.
     This is my tenth such presentation and I can say that it's probably the most difficult task to choose the appropriate music background that matches the sensibility of the selected photos. The selected music background should not be primary as in a music video (here is a focus on photography), but it should increase the emotion of the viewer and unite all the photos as a whole.
     The second part of the task is the appropriate selection of photographs (less is better), as well as their layout by sections according to the rhythm and pace of the music (introduction, development, finale).
     The third task (my choice is in After Effect) is to best possible, seamlessly balance the movement through the frame,
and everything be in line with the music rhythm/pace and the composition of the each photo.
This would be the basis of my workflow in post production, if someone is interested.

Very nice work!

Did you drive around on your own or did you get help from local guides?

In Iceland (and the other Nordic countries) you can never trust the weather, but I think that these rugged landscapes can look really nice even in so called "bad" photography weather.

Everything about the organization of trip is only my task (as always).
After booking the accommodation, I divided the pre-prepared list of locations according to the distance from stay.
Finding photo locations if you're well prepared is no problem on Iceland. Each photo spot location I had a pre-allocated note for sunrise, sunset, cloudy or combination.
The weather at the time of our visit (me and my wife) was mostly cloudy and a bit rainy (need some luck in timing as per itinerary).
Some waterfalls, canyons in my opinion, look best for the cloudy - misty weather that gives the necessary drama and spooky mood.
For most photo spots (beaches, wetlands, crossings over watercourses, etc.) I strongly recommend - gumboots.
Every single piece of clothing, camera, lenses should be waterproof...
