The site looks good, the slide show at the beginning is nice and not overbearing. The night section is a good addition, although I am more drawn to your photographs of people, especially the ones that illustrate vast scale shifts, or a unique perspective such as the one inside a glacier. They offer the same visual allure that the night ones do, but with more powerful content. Keep it up

Thanks! I've been trying to keep up a consistent flow of images, especially with people in them, but its hard because of schedules to get out there with other people. I've also been out of the game the last month due to a sprained MCL, but am gearing up for the summer season.

One of my night photos just won honorable mention at the Alaska State Museum. Heres the link to the image that won http://www.checote.com/.../h3c88322f#h3c88322f My goal is to get some dope night shots with people.

Really excellent work in a tough specialty. Are any of them HDR?

Nope, no HDR. I've tried that a few times and it has just been easier for me to use curves with dodge/burn to achieve the same image. Sometimes it's nice to have a solid black shadow, it can create a strong shape. I just got a new computer so I may try more HDR stuff or some pano's soon.

@ j_ung

Thanks man.
