Stian Holmen - Sunset

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...
