Default I'll pull the blurred version!

Ok - I can se what you are talking about, and appreciate being brougt 'down to earth' by you guys! Ordo - I like the expression "crepuscular light " very much - have no idea what it means, but it sounds great!!

Here is the "Un-Blurred" version. Not really exciting with the power-lines going up to the mast and the scaffolding on that other house....?

Curious about my photography?
You may look up my small portfolio on the Norwegian photo-forum: http://walter_s.foto.no/ - click - "LATEST" on left bottom of page.
You may then click any thumbnail to view the picture and click again on the displayed picture for an unobstructed full screen view. Enjoy!

ah see i was slightly late on my response .... i tweaked the colours slightly maybe not to your taste? kinda takes the darkness away but i can clearly see that the roof is ready for tiling on the second building anyway your second post is far better than the first walter the tower and compound on the top of the rocky hill does this supply the communication line and power? to the foreground buildings?

Ahh yes. See why you blurred it. But you could crop them out, leaving the house on the right, and turn it into portrait orientation. Worth a shot, because the blurring just doesn't work. Or, if you're a glutton for punishment, clone out the various objects you don't like.

Default Cool!

Oh Wow, Simon!

What colours and crispiness you brought out!

Agree, it does take away the feel of night and some of the 'mystery', but on the other hand, I can se now that the top of the roof of the first house coincides with the ridge behind, never a good thing! So as for a 'winner' this pic is ruined anyway.

Thanks for your effort, I'm impressed!

No, Simon.
The tower is a combined nautical navigation-aid (red blinking light on top) for boats out at sea (behind the hill there is the North Sea), and at the same time supports a coastal radar-unit which again is partly for coastal navigation survaillance (nautical civilian), and partly of defense-purpose (the green barracks).

The white house you see is the old lighthouse-home for the crew on duty, now turned into a holyday-house.

Default Another go at it...

Thank you Chato - nobody laughes, it works!

Just had to try a different approach to it. Did't do too god of a job with the clone-stamp-tool, but it could work if I took the time to do it properly.
But as I said somewere else, this isn't going to be a "keeper" anyway, since the rooftop has the same level as the hill behind it - when I shot it was too dark to make out, really.

But, what the heck - I have learnde a lot with this picture. Thanks everyone!
