      I love the shot. The broken ice is really cool. What's up with the green water? Is it always that color?

      Nice composition. Rather than concentrating solely on the lighthouses as so many do, you have found a great perspective that shows the lighthouses in their surroundings. The interesting foreground with the ice flows and curved showy shoreline, really bring out the dynamics of this composition.
