stop me, oh, stop me, stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
if this looks familiar... well of course it does, machu picchu doesn't really need much introduction, and this angle is probably the most famous viewpoint. it was my second time at the ancient citidal - and as i've posted a shot from here before i wanted to try something different with the processing. i actually felt a bit of pressure, as i figured it would be a clear sign of how i've improved as a photographer, to go back to the same place and try and improve. after pissing around in photoshop, trying different hdr techniques, i settled on this subtle interpretation. ok, it's not that subtle, but it was processed exclusively in lightroom and the dynamic range was left uncharacteristically low. you can judge whether you prefer this interpretation, or my first attempt. as an aside, it turns out i returned to machu picchu exactly two years after my first visit. for real. the first time was 06/09/09 and this was 06/09/11. hows about that then.
