I'm assuming this is an HDR shot, totally stunning work.
snowpup - 24/Jul/11Report
No. I've never taken an HDR shot. Its taken as is- camera sitting on my backpack, 30 sec exposure, using my headtorch to fill in the light a bit around Will in the last few seconds of exposure.

Awesome photo Jon, any chance of making this a wallpaper on
Jon Wickham - 26/Jul/11Report
Thanks all. WEll its a 30 second exposure so he had to stand as still as possible for 25 secs then totally still for the last 5. then it was onwards to the climb....
Jon: Alpine Exposures is about to go a massive change in the next couple of months so it will probably be available when I relaunch the site then.

Nice one Jon I love it when the presumed experts are put down. I, like yourself take photo's, of what I see not something I may be able to manipulate in photoshop later. Well done mate.
