Hey Hyundai, Say Cheese!

Yes, it's time for another shot of the rental car (hey, without it, these would all just be landscapes, right?).

HDR from three incremental exposures (0, +2, -2) processed in Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom 4.


In September 2011, my wife and I went to Iceland for a two week honeymoon. The trip was such an incredible experience. We started in Reykjavík and drove around the outside of the county counterclockwise. Although we made hotel reservations ahead of time, our day to day itinerary wasn't planned in advance so we could see/do whatever we felt like.

Iceland is such a diverse and amazing place. I've never seen such beauty, breathtaking landscapes, and an assortment of scenery anywhere else. One moment you're walking on a glacier and the next you're hiking through a lush landscape to a waterfall. Mid to late September seemed like the perfect time of year to go. There were no crowds at any of the sites, we had our pick of where to stay, and the weather was fantastic.

If you've never been to Iceland, photos (mine or anyone else's) don't really give it justice. It's somewhere you have to see and experience in person.

    It's still squeaky clean after running on dirt roads.

    Beautifully captured and processed -- definitely car brochure material! I think your wife's expression is my favorite part, though... ;-)

    Dramatic result. She's like ....I don't wanna be in this but I'm too tired to get out of the car. I like this for the understanding wife component.

    As the wife I can attest that the expression was more of an "okay I went and enjoyed the scenery with you for 10 minutes, but now I'm cold so stop fiddling with the settings on your camera and take the photo already so we can keep going!"

    Although I guess you are all photographers too so I'm gonna lose that argument around here!

    You have this processing thing down to a science. Another brilliant pro-quality shot.
