    There could hardly be a better way to express the harsh beauty of Spitsbergen. Great image!

    Minimalism in the sense of only a few colors is always something that appeals to me and when you have such a grand landscape with an animal in it then you have hit the jackpot.

    One thing though. Have you tryed adding a bit grain to the image, because on a second look it is kind of strange to see the black areas without any detail.

    Very strong image, Stian. I second Sven's thought about adding a bit of structure. Perhaps, I find it a bit too contrasty. Cool idea, in any case.
