Hornsvík again. Me and Arnar my traveling partner were talking about modifying the scene when photographing landscapes, if it was seen by some as falsifying you image, like placing an autumn leaf on a "perfect" place on top of a rock in a mountain stream etc.

Then we came across this log. It was located on the beach but not exactly where we liked having it :) So, in light of our discussion in the car on the way there we decided to toss the log into the wet sand where we would get better reflection and composition. Does it work? ...is it cheating? haha
