Thank you for your kind words, tsjiaotai - I had fun doing these shots, specially because I didn't know my new camera so well then.

Hards80 - I always value you comments, and I am glad you liked this set. Initially, I was afraid they were too buisy to be any good, because there is a lot going on there, both in the fore-, middle- and back-ground.

But I was more occupied with the mood as with the simplicity of the settings.

Again, thank you all!

Awesome series (as usual)

Like the cloud's reflection in #1 und #2 - but, of course, #3 is great too, but this scene looks just beautiful with and without HDR

Beautiful 'clean' photos that really challenge me to improve my eye for landscape. I personally don't think the HDR in this situation added anything but currently can't choose between 1 and 2 as they are both great.

I'm really pleased that we have shooters like you posting here to give us lovely photos to look at and inspire us to improve.

Thank you, maggo85.
I think I know why seascapes from Norway seem to appeal to your taste. It is because it is so different from your own settings in the Tyrolean mountains. When I lived there as a young boy and I saw tourists looking at and praising the scenery and beauty of those thruly magnificent (but I didn't know that then...) mountains, I couldn't understand what the fuzz was all about - after all, they were only mountains and they had been there like this all the time...

There is really nothing to improof with your eye for landscapes, Mark. I have seen #3 in your series "Photos in the mist" which, to me, is the most clever use of a portrait-format for a seascape, ever. Not only does it work, but it gives the scene a special posterlike grandeur.

I really appreciate your last sentens here, Mark, because I have been accused of 'repeating myself' in my landscapes and I frequently ask myself; - is it too much? - do I post too many landscapes?

But then I think "follow your heart" and post anyway...

Thanks a lot for your encouragment. I feel flattered.
