Tableau Vivant of Wild Horses

Updated SmugMug Portfolio Theme

I know many of you have signed up for SmugMug (if not, use “STUCKINCUSTOMS” to save money), and you might like to know there is a new set of themes coming! I’ve had this one custom-built, and I really like the clean look of it all. I think it’s a lot more fun and usable to click around and navigate. Plus, I like that there is a big, friendly “Buy Prints” option up there at the top!If you want to know more, see my full SmugMug Review here on the site.






Daily Photo – Frolicking Horses in Iceland

Here’s one of the best situations to use Photomatix — when you are shooting a landscape scene with a lot of different light levels. In this case, it does not get much more extreme than staring right into the sun while shooting these lovely horses on a farm in Iceland.

  • Super great shot of the horses – I love how the grass looks- cool!

  • Casper van Zyl

    Great shot, love the way the grass and horses are light up.I saw a sight here in Perth this morning and did not have my camera. Was driving over the bridge in the City and the sky was almost like luminous as if someone had already done the sky in HDR.It only lasted 3 minutes almost every building in the city went pink,it was something to see. We , that is all of us are so fortunate to have our Creator around when something special turns up like this morning.I was in awe just looking at it while making my rounds though the City. Last week the river looked like a sheet of glass which in all the years in Perth I had never seen,and could not stop to take a picture,nowhere to park. May not have the pictures but some of the sights I have seen in my life one can only dream of I am so glad and thankful that these pictures are imbedded in my memory. Thanks for sharing.

  • Very nice shot Trey. This is a classic example of when HDR is needed… how else would you capture this…

  • t_linn

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Perfect use of HDR.

  • Catherine Martin

    Every time I study one of your photos I learn something new about HDR. I’ve been studying your 11-hour tutorial and have learned SO MUCH.

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Wow thanks Catherine – that is nice of you to say 🙂

  • Trey, can you tell me how many shots you used for this image, and did you use any plug ins or just photomatix and photoshop?

  • sharpness and colors on this are incredible.. 🙂

  • Cory Thompson

    Who made the new SmugMug Theme They did very well.

  • This shot is pretty perfect in every way! I don’t say that a lot either. The grass looks so natural and I know how difficult that can be to achieve in HDR sunset shots like this!
