Thank you for the encouragement, Bob.

The harbour-photo was indeed a lucky strike. I like the serenety there and I go there now and then just to enjoy the tranquility and peaceful atmosphere.

Here is another picture of the same harbour but from a different angel. The picture below was taken from the right-hand side in the 1st harbour-picture. You might recognize the steep but well-rounded rocks in this new shot.

Its not a great picture, but it might be of interest to see just how small this harbour really is. Its name is Papperhavn: http://www.hvaler.net/innhold/turistinfo/vesteroy.asp

Best regards from Norway!

Another "Norwegian Coast" theme:
I dont know why, but I just love seaside-scenery so much, I never get tired of picturing landscapes like this.



See ya folks!

Its some time since I posted anything here, so I thought I'd bump this tread a bit by posting a typical summer-picture here today. No HDR this time, just a plain and simple single-shot.

Posted this one in the Panasonic-community as wll, but they rarely get seen there...

A maritime scene from Norway's eastern coast, shot on one of those unforgettable summer-evenings in nice weather with the sun low on the horizon, spreading that fantastic mellow evening-light. Observing nature in such beautiful light, one does want to shoot, and shoot and shoot to try and capture the essence of the warm atmosphere - but in vain. A mere picture can only give you a slight idea of what it really is like!

Enjoy!



P.S.: The picture has not been processed, other than removed an ugly power-line going to the light-houses roof with the Healing Brush Tool, and then minimized! So the coloures are in fact real.

Default Midsummers boating in Norway:

This one is taken at 10:45 PM in the evening - or 22:45 as we say here in Europe - some 10 minutes after the sun disappeared behind the horizon, a few days after midsummers-day (24th June). Hence the beautiful light.

some beautiful images indeed. lovely scenery - i wish i could go there to photograph it myself!

Photomatix Pro is really quite a good program. it is easy to overdo it, and some people deliberately "overcook" their HDR images to achieve a certain look, but i much prefer to keep the photo as natural as possible. it takes a subtle touch to process HDR images and still retain a natural look, but the results are well worth it, and you've done very nicely with your efforts.
