I’ve added Seoul to the list of cities I’ve officially visited. Although it was just a layover, it lasted 10 hours and I actually left the airport, so it counts. It seemed like a cool city and I found some cool Jangseung Totem Poles, so I was happy. These are they – a pair would be used to guard the entrance to a village against evil spirits. That’s what the sign said anyway, and any sign next to a Pocari Sweat machine has got to be telling the truth. I thought they were pretty rad. The backlighting was a good situation to use HDR. Without it, I would have had to choose to either overexpose the sky or lose all the detail in the faces. I did a little post processing, but nothing big.
