Care to share what's in your kit?

$4K is just the cost of the gear i used, not my backups, which I (thankfully) didn't need to use.  Also, i really should have said $5k!
-$3800 Camera Equipment
-$1500 a77+16-50
-$1500 70-400
-$800 - 11-16

-$300 - Tripod

-$500 various other equipment (batteries, memory cards, cleaning stuff, camera bag).

did you sail through Drakes Passage?

Yes - on the return trip from the Peninsula to Falkland Islands we crossed the passage. Oddly it was the calmest seas we experienced!

So are all these pics digitally "enachanced"?!
#TooUnreal

Haha well there are many books that could be written about what digitally enhanced means, but let me make a few points:
- I record images on my camera in a digital negative format, which you can think of as the equivalent of film negative
- Like a film negative, a digital negative is not easily viewable by itself, and needs to be converted to a viewable format: JPEG for digital, Print for film
- The conversion from negative format to viewable format requires the photographer to make various choices about how that conversion happens. For my photos, I'm making choices on contrast, saturation, sharpness, selective brightness, and so on.
- Even if I didn't make these choices and converted directly to jpeg in camera, the camera would be making the choices for me
- I make these conversion choices in Adobe Lightroom, which was modeled after the types of edits one would be able to make in a film darkroom
- My edits modify existing pixels, but do not create new ones, with the one exception of cloning out dust spots on my sensor (which is incidentally, an issue that film is immune to)
- None of these photos were edited in Photoshop
- These photos, to the best of my ability, represent the environment and subjects that I saw on my trip

Hope that helps!

What season did you go in? I'm guessing Summer.
Work is what you do between vacations.

Same thing. In fact Adobe's RAW files end with .dng, for Digital Negative.
