    Jeah another new icon - so: here we go:

    First I thought could be a torrent, then I saw the name "PowerShot" and I thought "Hmm.. ok why not". First of all the idea behind this icon is good - I like it. Also I don't think, that it is easy to make something like that and also ( as you said ) it's one of your first selfmade icons and in this case - it's good!

    But, you can give the icon more details for example the "hill" at the bottom can have small rocks in it and so on. Also the background can have small! improvements. These improvements should give more quality.

    Also please add more icon types [at least PAS and ATC typed + DIS for both]

    The points:

    + Works ingame
    + The idea behind it is good
    + On of your first - and for that it's good

    * As I said, improve the icon with some more details. (The Beam and the the background)
    * So it get a little bit more quality
    * After done this, please also add more icon types


    Ok what should I give you? Basic is 3/5- +1 because that's one of your first so we have 4/5. If you make some better changes, you have a high chance that I give you 5/5. Also +rep and I think it gets a +approval <-- hope mod will to it fast!

    I think the big picture looks awesome!
    But not the icon :/.
    Yes i'd try focus on some more vissible details for now, stones that has been pushed away or something.
    Is the element Wind or Water ? :eek:
