Alone at the Raging Waterfall of Gullfoss

Did you get your free upgrade?

About a month ago or so, we put out a free upgrade to the “Top 10 Mistakes in HDR Processing” book. There were so many sold — I think immediately we sold over 1,000 of these things. Our system sent out an email to everyone who purchased and gave them a free upgrade code. If you did NOT receive that email (perhaps it was blocked), please contact Support @ and the team can get you one. Just let them know your name so they can properly find you in the existing customer database.

I got a lot of great feedback on the Top 10 book — people wanted more examples, more sample photos, and a more detailed how-to. So it has been extended to 55 pages and should get every nook-and-cranny of your questions answered!

New eBook VERY Soon

This new eBook is really awesome. I’m super-proud of it.

It’s all about Composition and beyond. It’s called “How to Compose Photos: Creating Order from the Chaos“. It is a deep description of everything that I think about when composing a photo on the scene and later in post-processing about how/where/when/why I choose to crop.

This one is the longest eBook yet. It’s jam-packed with a ton of editorial text, descriptions, tips, and a deep discussion of many things that should be new to people. I know you all have high expectations, especially after the upgraded eBook above, and I think this will really be a nice addition to your growing collection of downloadable knowledge! 🙂 (We’re almost to that scene in the Matrix, yes?)

Daily Photo – Alone at the Raging Waterfall of Gullfoss

After two weeks of being alone I was getting a bit, shall we say, lonely.

I was getting in the habit of waking up around 4 or 5 PM, having a leisurely dinner, and then jumping in the car to explore new parts of Iceland throughout the white nights. On this particular day, I decided to head deep into the center of the island. My goal was to go to the parts where all the major roads do not.

Along that path, I arrived here at Gullfoss about 11 PM. I’ve been here many times before, but there was always a few people around admiring the falls. This time, I was alone. It’s so strange walking around a place like this while the sun is setting and no one is around. The feeling is like those apocalypse movies where all humans have just disappeared… just me… my gun… a trusty dog… maybe a few Icelandic elf-zombies lurking about… the more and more time I spend alone, the more reasonable this begins to sound…

HDR Photo

  • Dude, you’re a writing machine! Good stuff as always. I love those falls. Seems like I was just slip sliding all over that place. Slippery isn’t it? Spectacular Trey!

  • The cover of the e-book is stunning but the picture of the day is outstanding. Congratulations Trey and thanks for sharing your pics from Iceland. I would like to go there. Where do think is the best time during the year ? June ?



  • I love today’s photo — beautiful work, as always 🙂 You’re making me wanna go to Iceland ASAP.

  • Unbelievable shot. But I believe it!

  • Looking forward to that eBook Trey!!

  • I love waterfalls – especially the sense of movement in the water.

    Checked my emails and have the code for the HDR mistakes book upgrade so I will be getting that tonight.

    Also just invested some of my birthday money in a new tripod and spirit-level cube for London next month. I expect i’ll also be investing in the new ebook soon as well.

    I was also looking into purchasing Topaz adjust but am apprehensive – just thought i’d ask how much of an impact does it make on a photo after it has been through the Photomatix/Photoshop process and how often do you use it on your works?

  • Peter Rodgers

  • hehe thanks all… yes yes sweet waterfalls !

  • casusan

    Oh wow! This is so beautiful Trey – I love the color of that Iceland blue water – and the clouds are awesome!

  • Bonnie S

    I love the waterfalls! There is an illusion of them falling onto the green in the foreground. I love it!

  • simply….s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r!!!!

  • Insanely beautiful falls – well done!

  • It would have been cool if you left the white water white instead of bluing it

  • Trey, just a little more consideration that you have not could to avoid in this pic, it’s the green tones that are not in harmony with the rest of the colours, but the grass is the grass and it’s green not grey that would be more in concordance with the tonal range of the pic. This is an opinion of my father which is an oil/watercolour painter …

  • Dayton

    Great picture. I like the greenish patch in the sky, it goes well with the ground in front. The new ebook sounds exciting.

  • Hey Trey – yes, I got my ebook-update and LOVED it. Great work and lots of useful facts, now even more than before. This is great value, keep it coming! Regards from Austria!
