It's a beautiful series, Torgny. Whatever the light it worked well for you.

Beautiful shots, with great color. Fuji is the master of great color, with fine subtlety of tone.

I was intrigued by the pink flowers. Do you know the species?

And I was also interested in the apparently tilted/folded rock exposed on the hillside. Where were these taken?

More great shots, I find myself using 'PhotoMe' a lot more than 'Opanda'

as it includes a histogram, itdoes all that Opanda can do when it's

adjusted in it's settings for explorer and the web, and it's a free program

http://www.photome.de/download_eng.html

the histograms on all these photo'slook quite good, the little fuji has an

edge over a lot of the competition when it comes to subtly of colour, just as

'The Barbarian' say's. the only tips I have for shooting in poor lighting is to

meter for the hightlights in the scene and then PP to balance out the scene

bring light out of the darkness so to speak...................musket

Thank you. Fuji has the S5 Pro camera. You can use presets according to the the celluloid films they made

I´m sorry. I don´t know the species but I live near the Botanical Garden. I´ll find out some day and send it in a PM

The pictures were taken at a place called Lärjeåns dalgång. High above a river bed. The minerals around there are "granit" and "gnejs"

(Checked the dictionary - shouldn´t be a match for a geologist but is nice for me to know - "granite" and "gneiss")

Most unusual forms are due to the movement of the gigantic ices of the ice ages.

Thanks for your interest

Torgny

Thank you for the great tips. I don´t really complain on the weather. I want to maximize my ability to take good pictures in overcast days.

It´s not that the light may be insufficient, it´s the distribution of light and colour tones that interest me. For instance to make yellow "pop out" against a green background by lowering the lightness of the green. That kind of tips, please :-)
