While I like both shots, I think the first shot needs a bit more contrast. Id like to see it darker so the light shining stands out more. I see the dog has stopped to look in the pub door. Thats a nice touch.

I like the mood in #2. Nothing like a "cold one" to warm us up. Thanks!

I like beer as well as old buildings/architecture. The first image looks very inviting with the open door and the light spilling out from inside. It is nice to see the entire structure as in the second image. It looks like a place I would like to visit and have a few pints. Regards

Gentlemen,

My dear old father drank Carnergie Porter for dinner. It's no longer for sale. When I was a very young boy, [knirk, knirk - thar rockingchair needs some lubricant], I heard that if you drank Porter you didn't really have to eat.

It was that "meaty"; to the extension that sometimes it was impossible to make the beer pour from the bottle

I tested it once and, yes, so it was. Now that I'm a bit older I know you have to take off the cap, wether you can do it with your thumb or some strange tool

Another Carlsberg?

Cheers

It's a bit chilly outside. Wonder how it is inside

I really like that nigh-shot, Torgny!

#2 is very deep and nicely exposed IMO. Love that smooth sky and the whites, including the perfect white-balance of the picture. This is where your full-format 5D comes in and shows us APS-C (and smaller...!) who's the 'boss'!


How do you set the White-balance in such a shot, Torgny? Do you carry a white-board with you to adjust it there and then, or does the menue's default-setting do the trick?

Nice takes!

Walter,

I have the white balance set at auto at all outdoor photography, which is 99% of what i do. The Canons have somewhat unreliable white balance at artificial lights.

In this case though it seems the default seems to have worked, as you pointed out. So it seems it can have decent white balance at artificial light, when taking photos outside

No, had trouble rolling a "cikara" in the strong cold so managing a card would have have made the evening even harder

Never used any card any time - things to learn makes me happy
