Surrealistic Winter by torivarn Surrealistic Winter by torivarn
© 2013 Tor-Ivar Næss

This is a winterscene from Nordreisa, Norway.
The technique used is High Dynamic Range (HDR). It's a technique that allows the camera to combine tonalvalues to compensate for it's own limitations.
While the eye can adjust to 15 exposure values (levels of brightness) the camera can't see more than 10-12.

I hope you guys like this one, eventhough it's not a classic winterscene :)

At first glance this image appears to be a painting. The colors are bright, the way the snow has formed into shapeless mounds is unrealistic and the over all view of this image seems just to perfect. To learn that this image is certainly not a painting but a photo makes it that much more stunning. We think winter and many people think of the harmless landscapes of untouched snow. But the photographer here has caught the wildness and untamed beauty of nature. I must say amazing job to the artist in capturing this moment in such an astounding fashion and in a way that makes it seem like a fantasy landscape.
What do you think?

amazing, but the horizon seems to lean to the right side, a bit disturbing imo.
