This photo was a huge reach – working with high-speed sync dramatically limits its range, and underexposing the sky was asking a lot. I like the result, but I have to be honest and admit that this photo probably would have been easier to fake in post-processing.

The key difference is that I wouldn't have thought to try this effect in post.

There's a lot to be said for photographing with a camera instead of with a computer.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
