North Korea HDR Photographs
When I travelled to North Korea in March I took some photos and even painted some pictures. But that's not all: Every once in a while I took a moment to bracket my exposures and came up with these:

Pyongyang and I

Undeniably the strangest stop on the entire tour was this former palace of Kim Il Sung’s, converted to a mausoleum containing not just the deceased Leaders in state, but also their personal collection of degrees, awards, medals, cars, boats, and train carriages!

Pyongyang is much, much larger than the relatively small downtown core our tour crisscrossed. It is a sprawling city of two million of North Korea’s most privileged citizens.
