      Man. One of my life goals is to make it to Pripyat / Chernobyl. Did you have difficulty gaining access to them?

      Beautiful picture!

      @turbolemming: Thank you! It took some planning, but nowadays, it's not that difficult to enter the zone anymore. You still need a permit and a guide of course.

      This shot is awesome, your use of HDR is very good, and I am touched by these images.
