Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometres (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of its land area. Of Europe's approximately 50 states, Russia is the largest by both area and population, while Vatican City is the smallest. Europe is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of 731 million or about 11% of the world's population. However, according to the United Nations (medium estimate), Europe's share may fall to about 7% by 2050. In 1900, Europe's share of the world's population was 25%. More on Wikipedia.

This looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.

Yeah, ofc they're shopped. These are HDR-photos. Google it if you care.

The last picture of Germany is meant to show Frankfurt/Main. But it' Hong Kong!! ...not in Europe Iguess!! ;)

Anonymous said...

Sorry to burst your HRD bubble, but there's a picture in there of the waterfront in Barcelona, Spain. I took a picture from almost the same spot, facing the exact same direction, under the same weather conditions, and it came out, well, almost exactly the same.

Two problems I see with most (almost all) pictures:

1. stereotypes
2. way overdone, I mean overly dramatized pictures.

+1: many countries are missing...

Bongs said...

Wow love these photos! Especially the one of the corn field and the lonely cloud :D

over the top HDR = epic fail

Anonymous said...

I agree, WAY too much over the top HDR. Plus, Russia is NOT part of Europe. (Neither is Hong Kong, if you care, which is pictured...)

Anonymous said...

HDR is so played out and is ruining photography

Anonymous said...

last "germany" shot is hong kong.

Car Hire Cyprus said...

It is pity that there are some Geographic mistakes, but pictures are really GREAT!

Anonymous said...

The Ural Mountains are the eastern border of Europe, so Russia is part of Europe.

Anonymous said...

One picture of Norway and it's of a ship? Wow! Hot tip for next time is to take a picture of the fjord behind the ship... :)

Other than that, I love the pictures

Too much HDR, load of average images shopped to destruction.

Guessing it was done by an American since the georgraphy is fail.

Anonymous said...

The last "germany" shot... isn't from Germany.

Also, I didn't realise culture could be "driven" by anything but history. But... eh, semantics.

way to go putting a doctored photo of hong kong in there, NOOB! the original is better! http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c4/Hong_Kong_Night_Skyline_non-HDR.jpg

Too much photoshop/HDR

Technically Russia is part of Asia and Europe... Eurasia..

The Last pic in the Germany Section is Hamburg (Jungfernsteig). Its not HongKong .... May be it resembles too much ...

Nice pictures but I'm kinda sad that there wasn't any pictures of Turkey.

where is turkey?
Istanbul extends both on the European and on the Asian (Anatolia) sides of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Istanbul)

William K Wallace said...

Doesn't the world look a bit more dramtic when it has been photoshopped. I think you went a wee bit overboard on most of them...They don't look real....!

Anonymous said...

If Europe is so amazing, why do these photos have to be so photoshopped. Way to ruin a good photo.

Anonymous said...

HDR overkill here - yes, they've achieved impressive contrast ranges, but a landscape photo is generally meant to represent what the landscape actually looks to the human eye - not how it would look if we were able to see in HDR. Just my view of course.

yoxx said...

awesome works... though i am not likely HDR

adhi said...

awesome pictures...nice for pc desktop wallpaper..

Anonymous said...

most of these pictures are terrible, not because they are bad pictures, but because of the retarded amounts of 'clarity' used in photoshop RAW. Alos some of the saturation and contrast values just make this look like a businessman that calls himself a graphic designer on the side. granted there are a few, very natural, lovely pictures on here. overall, breathtaking isnt the word i'd use for these.

Adrian Land said...

Amazing photos. Thank you for sharing.

What settings did you use to get those dramatic colours?

Angel Gruev said...

Yes, the pictures are great, what soft Do You use for it (hdr) ?

Fran said...

SOme good stuff but too much HDR for my taste.

shahid said...

Nice -----------

enveraster said...

cool, but some color are too sharp, not good in the eye at aLL..

Sokobanja said...

One of the best selection of photos. Each photo is a story in itself. Thank you authors for this beautiful pictures.

Anonymous said...

Only three pictures without buildings. Thats why europe is at the bottom of my list of places to go.

Ashley said...

These are awful. Photo Shop-ed like crazy, the colors are entirely too saturated, and many have visible pixels from where things have been cropped in.

Not to mention several of these images are from totally different countries than what this blog denotes.

And it's either "The Netherlands" or "Holland," NOT "Netherland."

One photo of Scotland and it's a CHURCH lol, considering Scotland has the most beautiful countryside in the UK!

David Hardwick Photography said...

very nice work.

Ian said...

So much HDR fail. Learn to expose properly and work within the limitations of your equipment and medium, like photographers have been doing for the last hundred years. HDR is just ugly laziness by talentless wankers.

How do you do HDR?

Tim said...

Alot of the photos are over enhanced HDR images, and over saturated aswell. Learn to exposure properly and curves.

Hi, can anybody tell me what city is on the second last picture of spain and is this picture available in higher resultion?

Markymarcm said...

Jesus... Stumble fails again. Just so inevitable that every single list of '40 of the most amazing photographs of...whatever...' is, instead, going to be
'40 kinda cool, but totally raped with photo-shop photographs to show all you stumblers how obvious I can make it that I've shopped every single one of them, causing you to hit the thumbs down button to try and avoid stumbling the same tiring crap...'

i think its funny, that Europe said that there is so much natural beauty in Germany, yet most of these pictures are all filled with buildings, covering the natural beauty.

Anonymous said...

i live in london, and that shot of the parliament should be smoggy and overcast. trust

Anonymous said...

I get that HDR is a legitimate skill that can be used to really enhance a good photo, but I agree with other posters. Some of this is just way too much. Less is more. The HDR effects should be MUCH more subtle.

Leasing Trailer said...

Yup! really breathtaking pictures as the person who sees them just found himself with the picture and i am sure that it had gave a chance to see the real beauty of the nature. Thanks man....

Anonymous said...

HRD doesn't automatically equal "breathtaking". Some of these are pretty sloppily done - halos around the edges.
Its these kind of images that make Americans believe that Europe is an ancient fantasy world. It's real, beautiful, ugly, old, and new. But it isn't HRD.

wtf, not any pics from sweden?

Those parts of Ireland are beautiful in normal photos. They look ridiculous and like a video game in this. Pointless.

That is not what Europe looks like. Get off your arse and come look.

Good work.

These photos are absolutely stunning my friend and despite the harsh criticism of "Anonymous" who keeps yammering on and on, your images constitute ART and your unique perspective on life throughout these lands. The shot in Ireland of the old church and sunset is magical!!!

Amazing photos! I am always impressed by the architecture of the Czech Republic and the surprising beauty of Croatia. I first saw the landscape of these countries on TravelExplosion.com some time ago. Makes you just want to hope on a plane and take a vacation!
