    This place seems so desolate, albeit breathtakingly beautiful and splendid, that nothing stirs, not even the proverbial mouse. I say this because the water body in the photograph is still as a mirror, no ripples or movements. Great photograph, colours are beautiful!ReplyCancel

    The second picture is almost surreal. It is hard to believe such a scene actually exists on our planet.ReplyCancel

    In most of the landscape post-processing videos that I have seen one concept cropped up the most, “complexify [sic] the light” (dodge/burn). I see very good examples of that concept in the above presentation.ReplyCancel

      Local adjustments are necessary for creative interpretation as well as to focus attention on areas of the image you wish to highlight.ReplyCancel

    Hi Rajan,

    Nice set, especially “Rhyolite red”.

    There is only one word to describe this and Roland bab said it…”Susegaad”. One of your best posts! 🙂ReplyCancel

    Rajan bhai, so you were there from mid-night till morning to capture these two moments or did you happen upon the same place at two different times of the day or are these photographs years apart?ReplyCancel

    • Rajan Parrikar - July 18, 2016 - 5:31 pm

      Premanand-bab, I was based nearby – around 20 mins away – and was out shooting the entire night. These photos were taken just a few hours apart. I don’t sleep much when I am in Iceland during summertime.ReplyCancel
