Default Afternoon Stroll In My Town + Maritime Journey

Just some pictures I shot with my "new" used Panasonic GF1 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens. I had to "get the feeling" of this (for me) new camera and set out one whole sunny afternoon and plenty of time.

The only thiong that marred the occation is that there was quite a breeze blowing that day, and for a fanatic HDR-photographer (Me!) that's not good news at all, because the foliage on the trees move quite a lot between shots.
Anyway, don't get too hung up on the ghosting in the trees, folks!
:^)


I just love that great little camera!

Sunny afternoon in the park:
This is actually a panorama, stitched together of 2 HDR's - each containing 5 exposures.

I'm saying again "you are not a camera owner".

Certainly, these shots are mind blowing... I mean look at the colours in the 1st and depth in the 2nd one, its just great.

This is the small-town charm. 6 houses in this street scene, and all have different architectural style...or no style at all....


2 HDR's stitched together to form this 'panorama'.

Picture 3 is very colourful and has very good vanishing point.

Picture 4 is more towards soft and less vibrant, compared to others in this series.

Great work.

Thank you all for commenting!


Here is another one, which this time is purely an architectural shot, really - but it's from the same afternoon photo shoot. I just love that old house with its characteristic classical style fassade (I'm a sucker for all things classical...).


And really - this series is more about my "new" camera (and what it is able to produce...), as it is about context!

....well, and my passion for the HDR-technique to be able to pull details from the shadowy-parts of my shots.

The oak by the church. A quiet place.
I have always liked trees. Especialy old and tall oak-trees with their knarly bark and some of their branches sometimes growing at crazy angles.
I fell for the light coming through the foliage, creating these shadow and light-patterns on the cementery lawn.

I have to say I admire your restraint and taste in using HDR as a means of enhancing pictures. You didn't over do any of them.

I particularly like the treatment of architecture.
