You haven’t seen Japan until you’ve seen it slightly retouched in Photoshop.Photographer Trey Ratcliff is an expert photographer who utilizes “high dynamic range” imaging, or HDR, giving many of his images an awesomely dramatic contrast. This is normally done by merging several different versions of the same image.

Ratliff brought those award-winning skills to Japan, and posted the results on his Flickr page.
