p.1 #1 · Clear day at the Mendenhall Glacier


A nice clear day out at the Mendenhall yesterday. Found a little ice cave at the face right where it meets the lake. Here are a couple of shots from that cave. Merry Christmas everybody.

1






2
This is five frames wide stitched, of 7 stop HDR images of inside the cave. Total of 35 images to make this.
This is 600 pix tall and how ever wide. Hope its inside the allowed parameters.
Here is a link to a larger resolution to see the detail. http://www.pbase.com/tazman0895/image/148021971

3 One more from the face of the glacier where it meets the lake. I know you folks are not fans of HDR but its all I have of this harsh light day. Cheers, Ron

Hey Ron,

Some cool shots here. #2 of that ice cave really rocks. You did a good job on processing all of these, they all have a pretty realistic feel to them.

Beautiful work. #2 looks almost other worldly. Its only when an image looks HDRed the some object.

Thanks, I am always worried that the HDR is unrealistic looking, especially with the ice caves, they are unreal enough with out help.

I wasn't sure what I was looking at in the second image. Glad to see you explained.
Amazing shot you've captured here. Congrats!

Love the ice cave 2 photos on your picbase site. Such gorgeous colours! Shows that the 1Ds Mark III is still an excellent camera!

As everyone else said, number 2 really is stunning. Reminds me of my one experience inside a glacier, you really captured that wonderful blue that just shines through the ice.

I love what HDR can do, but personally I think the HDR effect could definitely be toned back on the first and third image, the second one looks mostly natural, but still has enough of that HDR look to me and could possibly be pulled back slightly.

Beautiful shot. The thing that works best for me is the monochromatic image with a little hint of color. Perfect.

I am a big fan of pushing the color envelope. In our world of photoshop and the fact that a camera can never capture a "real life" image anyway due to its lack of dynamic range compared to the human eye... There are only images that "Are" and those that "Are Not" pleasing to look at.

Outside of News reporting and historically archiving. I see no reason to be shackled with capturing something and making adjustments in color, contrast and perspective. Art has long embraced capturing the attention of its viewers. The use of color combinations and composition has been used for centuries to make it pleasing to the eye. That is a manipulation in itself.

How many pieces of Art have you seen where every man, even the old men are muscularly ripped like some kind of body builder? The Art of that period is some of the most iconic in history. Do you think they all really looked like that? Even the elderly? Lol

I love your images. Keep up the good work. You are an Artist of your time.
