Reflective landscape in Iceland (and a Happy Thanksgiving!), originally uploaded by Photomike07.
My trekking about Iceland, as I have mentioned way too many times by now, rewarded me with a few challenges when it comes to lighting. Kind of ironic for someone who lives in a world of light! When I shot this scene however, I knew that I could work it a bit in post.
The original shot was just half of this. I have stared at it for a couple of months and never really thought that it was finished, until it hit me tonight. The scene was really quite grandiose there (sorry, I kinda hate that word to….just a bit stuck here), but I didn’t really capture that when I was there. I decided to work the ole’ copy and flip trick here, dodged and burned a bit, and created this. I kinda like it 🙂
