Default I Shouldn't Have Eaten That Laced Cookie...

My observation of the Norwegian Midnight sun:





...just pulling your leg, really. I live in the south of Norway and we do not have any Midnight Sun here. But still it's a night-shot from approx. 10:30 PM - or 22:30 in European terms.

I feel bad about cheeting you, so I'll load up the original picture of the above.

This is a panorama, made out of 2 HDR's - each of 5 exposures. Hope you like this one better... more details here.

A bit softer and less detailed:
And if you think the horizon is ever so slightly bent, you are right, because I used my Tokina 11-16mm here and this lens has a habit of bending straight lines...

Best regards,
Walter


By the way, the above picture (# 1) was distorted with the "LittlePlanet"-function i have on one of my softwares as a plug-in.

I just ordered the toki 11-16mm, so I'm hoping your comment is accurate for all hyper-wide lenses (I think it is).

Hi iowa_jim!

You will never regret ordering this fantastic pice of glass! A bit heavy (metal and good glass), but sturdy, solid (you can kill a man with it...) and incredible sharp (stop down from 2,8 a bit) all the way.

This is one of my favorites and I will NEVER sell it (as long as I have a DX-camera)!

Have a nice weekend!

Best regards,
Walter

Absolutely will post some shots soon. Still learning to use my Nikon DSLR, having started with a bridge camera.... The Tokina is actually hubbie's but somehow it has sneaked into my camera bag
