May 2009

near Berca Village, Buzau, Romania

you can see it larger on my site

HDRi, from 3 shots, -1, 0, 1 exposure

Processed the RAW files in Lightroom 2.3
Then made the HDR in Photomatix 3.2

This is a resubmit of an old shot, I felt it was needed, since in the old one I didn’t manage to get the exposure the way I wanted :)

This is really near to what I saw with my own eyes, and I’m happy with the final version, Hope you like it too!

24 year old Romanian photographer currently living in Denmark.

Started photography in 2008 and has been involved with it since.

    This is simply awesome!!!!
    I didn’t know that they have Volcanoes in Romania. I love volcanoes.
    And the shot is awesome!

  • Thank you Friederike, heh actually those aren’t real volcanoes, they’re just mud volcanoes, not the really dangerous ones haha :D

    But they’re kind of unique in Romania, and pretty rare in Europe too, here you can read more about them, Wish the article was better, but it’s pretty hard to find something in English :)

    Okay… – Do they still work? No, I guess not! ;-))))))))
    Thanks for the info and the article. I will check it out tomorrow. :-)
    I really have to go to bed now otherwise tomorrow is going to be total chaos. ;-))))
    Jipp, and try to get out of town if the streets allow… ;-)))) – Same problem here as well, that’s why Picasa and collages are still a perfect alternative…. ;-))))
    Good Night! :-)

  • Yes, they still work, there are dozens of small little mud volcanoes :)

    Good night :)
