->> Some of the technicals and background on Brashear's High Glaciers project, from my friend and fellow Rocky Nook author Christian Bloch.

So, just so you know, HDRI plays a significant role in this project. It's usually a polarizing issue, but here, I think, is an example that can make many photographers think twice both about the technical process and the creative and documentary potentials of the multi-image process to capture more detail in exceedingly high contrast scenes.

From the Washington Post -- "CORRECTION: The original headline on this post incorrectly said that the resolution of the image was 2 billion pixels. According to a clarification by GlacierWorks, the final pixel count of the completed image comes to 120,000 x 31,840 pixels, which yields a total of 3,820,800,000, or about 3.8 billion. The new headline reflects the change."
