Gunnlaugur Gudmundsson: I live in Iceland, I'm an Icelander... may I go against the grain, i.e. be a bit critical

and comment on my country... as a native

these pictures are not Iceland... they are over-processed ... the Barbie-Ken version of Iceland /photography... if you like...

very good technically.... but they don't portrait Iceland as Iceland is...

what I'm trying to say is this, the pictures are excellent, but Iceland is something else...

a windy place,,, light, dark... and very moody,

these pristine and excellent photos capture a dream.. 1% of Iceland,, the 2 week tourist selection of best photos...

"these pictures are not Iceland... they are over-processed ... the Barbie-Ken version of Iceland /photography... if you like..."

I don't agree with Gunnlaugur on this point. The pictures are the representation of the photographer, what he sees and interprets. Iceland can be many different things to different people and there is definitely no single representation of Iceland that is more correct than any other. The key to a successful visit is to bring a positive attitude and make the most out of your stay, rain or shine, sandstorm, midnight sun, or a case of Aurora Borealis.
