    The view looking downstream from Haifoss. We had incredible winds this day. Rather than use the tripod, I made the decision to handhold a 5 shot HDR bracket. Iceland 061618-999-HDR-Edit.jpg

    This looks good, but one thing I learned about HDR is to raise the mid tone contrast. The greens are a bit flat.

    Thanks Ben. I'll give that a go. I have struggled at times with the greens in Iceland. They're either flat or glow to the point of looking unrealistic.

    Pretty nice result from a 5 shot hand held blend. Incredible view from there.

    Very cool work Bob!

    Yeah sometimes when it’s that windy the only real option is to handhold. Good job here.

    Good work. Looks a lot like eastern Washington.
