how come there are so many amazing Icelandic photographers on Dpchallenge?
is it just pure coincidence?

(just kidding, guys)

Hmm, don´t know....

The word just gets around :)

We aint that many, we are just so good :D <--- ego ego ego

The real reson I think is because we are well conected to the web and are very often up to date in technolgy. Also many of us do blogs and there we talk about dpchallenge and other stuff.

Nice Try, but like usually I think it's not going to work :)

I think the reason is that there is no site in iceland as good a dpc and because of those few how started here we all come here to try to stick to gether.

Eigum við kanski að segja þeim frá áætlunum Íslendinga um að taka yfir Site Councel dótið og breita öllu hér og íslenska þessa síðu.

There are no trees here ... :p

But I know one guy from USA he just loves taking pictures of russian leather worms, is that a common interest in there? :D
05/13/2004 06:57:57 PM · #20
Oh yes, Americans love interesting insects from around the world! I am obsessed with big, creepy bugs from New Guinea! I want to go there and photograph everything!!!

Iceland seems so beautiful. Are there really no trees? You do have the aurora don't you?

Yes, during the winter we sometimes have great aurora (or northern lights).

Here is an example

That is a really rare creature to encounter and people would pay millions of rublas to get a picture of it ...

I´m the black sheep with my Nikon, but one day I hope to be as good as my fellow Icelanders.

i tend to see a strong design ethic in the northlands :)

to me, the scandinavian countries, the netherlands, (now iceland) all have a very simple starkness to their art (whether photos, architecture, art, furniture...) it all seems to have a collective air about it. then i look at the majority of american design. honestly, its kind of dumb and clumsy in my opinion. it seems awkward and forced....i don't know, maybe its a capitalist thing..."design to sell what 'joe american' wants". who knows. does anyone else feel this?

rambling in the states,

-O.

I just want to know how cold it gets . . . . my husband won't move anywhere with really cold temps. If it "passes", I'm there!!!! Actually, I had noticed the same quality of work coming from that one area, too. Maybe in my next life . . . .
