Stian Holmen - Sunset
Spitsbergen, from my favorite time of the day. Low light, long shadows.
At least, that´s what i want the pictures to look like.
At this time at year (20.06), there will newer be a sunset.
The sun is bright and high, days and nights look the same.
Not optimal conditions for nature photo maybe,
but it´s fun to play with the strong contrasts.
Some may call this pic manipulated or cheating,
as it don´t shows the scene as my eyes saw it…
But the truth is that my eyes “saw” this picture.
With a little help from the sun, exposure and editing,
the result became closely to what i hoped to make.
I got a feeling of sunset, but the low light and long shadow´s missing…
