Default Thank you, Ordo!

Your comments are much appreciated. Good luck with the new software!!

Now I promised a series, so I'll just post another two from the same street. Not really good photos as such, but they will give you an impression of this typical small-town environment, with houses buildt during the 1910 - 1930's and on to the 1940's.



Here is one showing the street of the first picture in post #1. At the end of the white long house you can see the other "motive", the allyway with the green dumpster in it.

BTW - the odd "gray patches" on the front of the house are in fact shadows of trees from the opposite side of the street.


The next one, again the same buildings, but this time taken into the other direction. Pretty difficult lighting with the low sun and hard contrast, but it is here that HDR can make the difference.

Love all your shots mate
I'm also going to do what you did a few posts ago. To post the +/-0 EV untouched also as a "before/after". Great idea Bynx

Default Here is another one, as we go walking along in the small town of Fredrikstad...

I promised you a series, so here we go with another one....



This one looks like Count Dracula has ordered to be buildt as his Scandinavian base...


Very strange architecture - but quite picturesque.

That rolling shaped roof in the middle with the lightning rod on top is seen in your first posts. Made of copper sheeting, I see here they have painted over the copper with silver paint. Really nice series. Too bad your lens wasnt a bit wider to get more of a view of the two streets. This would be another great HDR if shot at night when the lights were on and just a few minutes after sunset so there is still some color in the sky.

I like the first one too the green trash can balances out the green of the bush and then the red is more out standing when the trash can was taken away it did not hold any appeal... the next pictures now they both are great shots though u got closer in the top one.. Great job..

The next group are just as great ... though I would not take out the tree I would add some more over the top one the left looks like lack of greenery there notice there are no other trees... oh to be back in the U-dist for a time... I love those older homes a lot.

SharpShotGal - Many thanks for your comment. They were really apprecciatet.

There is some color balance in #1-shot which is appealing to the eyes. As you said, the green balanced on either side of the ally-way, and the red coming out better with the amount of green in the picture.

There were lots of trees around but unfotunately on the opposite side of the street.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment!

Default Simple and Bynx!

Thank you for your kind words. I just love these old houses because they where buildt in times never to be returned.

The pure joy of designing and building houses that where interesting and pleasing to the eye, and the amount of working-pride produced by the carpenters in those days, can still be seen today for us to be appreciatet.

Hav a look and enjoy the details as pictured in the following detail-shots, well crops really.

Default A house I would have liked to show you in perfection...

...but unfortunately, there where so man cars parked around there all the time. Apparently it's a very popular community meeting-place, used by all kinds of leisure-clubs and humanitarian societies for their get-togethers.

I have been back there at different times of the day to get a decent shot / photo, showing only the house itself, but no luck so far. Its a busy place.

But I'll show it to you just the same - just out of interest. This shot is a plain, ordinary single shot (and a blown sky as well...) - no HDR-rendering. Please excuse all the parked cars around - there is nothing really I can do about it. Its to much to clone!!

Anyway, enjoy a bit of traditional architecture of days gone by....
