  1. Great location. I like the perspective in this image, I’d just add a bit of contrast, but that’s just me, image is great! 🙂

    • Yeah the location is great. I’m still trying to figure out a nice balance between realistic and ‘over-the-top’. Your photos are stunning. Both HDR and traditional!
