Default My Summer Cottage

Took a few photos of summer cottage... Jok'n place is deep in the forest... the inlet through the reeds takes you to a 2 Km long lake... where my wife braved the water temp for a swim.

Thanks, Daniel! It's a real fun place if you don't mind taking a long dirt road, and being about 45 minutes from "civilization". We enjoy it.

All the best, and many thanks!

Remote is nice when you want to get away from it all.
Just relax and enjoy nature.
Looks like you have a great hideaway, Ned.

Thanks, Daniel! Yeah, I like to get away from it all, now and then. Where my cabin is, it is so, there are no "noisy motor boats"... Yesterday, all I could see was a huge lake and nothing but forest around it. End of story.

Thanks.

Thanks GW and Frogfish!

Frogfish, you asked about the water, the Finns like... my wife was freezing at first, but then said the water was great... (I think she is in denial ) Yes, you can dive in it... but you won't see me doing that. I don't have a thing for pain, it is a cold lake in summer, or rolling in the snow / jumping in a whole in the ice of winter... no, I don't do that... All the best.

Ned

Ok, now for a little more critical look at the mökki (cottage), which is best? First set is ISO 200, photo 1: TIFF, Photo 2: JPEG. In the second set, this is with ISO 3200. BTW, I have had my Finnish wife and son stand over my shoulder to decide on the darkness of how the cabin really looks like. Hope you like these. Any advice is always appreciated.

FIRST SET -- ISO 200




SECOND SET -- ISO 3200

Hey Ned,
Its really hard to make a judgment between two different photos and say which is best. Depending what you are comparing, If you want a true comparison between which lens is better, it has to be two shots at the exact same settings at the same target. If you want to compare file format, you need one photo taken in RAW and then converted to tif and jpeg, with any editing done before converting.
With the photos above, they are taken at different settings but, but before I could give any kind of opinion on them I need to know if any adjustments were made in PP before posting them.
BTW regardless of anything else, the photos shot at 3200 ISO really impress me! good job.
