Don't think like that! If you like it so, try to be inspired by it, or otherwise motivate yourself. Whenever I see a photo that really makes me go "Wow, I want to do that", I feel inspired. Anyone can take good pictures of fjords from a viewing point.... you just need the fjord and the viewing point I want to take pics of other scenes that I don't have around me, I really do.. Until I get there, there isn't much I can do but watch images and feel inspired by them.
To achieve this you probably need more than one exposure. I used 5, I think, taking one for the shadows, one for the middle, one for the highlights and a couple in-between. Software, such as Photomatix (which I used), will merge these exposures and make a so-called high dynamic range picture. On this picture, there are several things you can do with the software. I did some "tone mapping". This editing technique will enhance local contrast as well as global contrast of the image.
You may have noticed how most is rendered black if you shoot against a window? That's due to a limiting dynamic range of the image sensor - it's not able to capture the entire range of tonal values. That's why we take several exposures, being sure to capture the entire range in more than one exposure. The software will merge them. Here's one exposure for the trees, and one exposure for the sky. As you see, one exposure won't render detail in both areas.. In HDR-photography, the editing is crucial. I most often like the pictures to look natural, and not like a cartoon, or a painting.
I did try to take some exposures for a panorama, but being the pano n00b I am, the other frames were all tilted. Photoshop wasn't able to align them. I'll need to practice more for panoramas - the scene is wonderful for it.
Very, very well done. I've always wanted to venture over to Norway. I feel like you could be dropped there, throw the camera in the air on a timer, and still end up with a great shot. But, this one is very well done.
