    Zen Great workshop weekend! Here is Silver Efex Pro
    We had a great one - thanks everyone for coming! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I got a real kick out of seeing people's results from the night before. People went home and tried all of this stuff for real and got some stunning results. On Twitter, check the the has #HDRWorkshop for a few samples. Thanks again for all the enthusiasm when you come to the classes - that is really nice of y'all.

    Towards the end of the workshop yesterday, I showed off Silver Efex Pro. I like how this turned out! You can see more in my Nik Review here on the site! Below is one of the shots that I whipped up towards the end of the workshop to show off how cool (literally) Silver Efex Pro is!

    Daily Photo - Zen Peaceful Iceland at Dusk
    The soft magnetic blue of dusk lasts a good hour or more in Iceland. It's a nice time to relax into your right brain, move around freely, and take photos until you collapse in exhaustion.

    In Reykjavik, there is a lake that freezes solid, or, at least, it appeared to be solid, every winter. I started walking slowly across really give it a test. Why not? During my scoot-fest, I found this wonderful little bridge.

    I'm thinking of going to Iceland this year for the summer solstice (that day when it is 24 hours of sunlight)... sounds awesome! I can't imagine a 5 hour sunset followed IMMEDIATELY by a 5 hour sunrise!!

      Hey, Trey. Such a cool reflection/shadow there in the center created by the light shining through the bridge railing. Very nice. L8R.

      Nice :) I think we saw this bridge when we were in Iceland over new years


      In winter, the place is like having the golden hour for about 4-5 hours.

      Absolutely stunning. Reminded me of parts of New Zealand :) Of course, most of the world does - maybe I'm just homesick a bit.

      Sadly, we didn't get to see the Northern Lights - low period for solar activity. Oh, well, we'll have to go back.....

      Love Iceland. Shot a commercial on Kerlingerfoll several years ago - bubbling hot springs beneath the lip of a glacier.

      BTW - we were there during the summer solstice - the sun does actually dip below the horizon (briefly). ICL is about 60 miles or so south of the Arctic Circle. Golden light all day, tho.

      A friend taught music in Iceland and on the Soltice would go to a spot on the coast and watch the sun sink down and kiss the horizon and start to rise again. If you get a chance - stop in at Reydisfjord - great town and great people.

      Nice. The reflection of the railing looks like planks under the ice. Excellent shot.
