Helsingborg at Night 2


Same as the shot below, but zoomed in a bit.

Helsingborg at Night 1


One of the first shots of the evening, still a fair bit of natural light, but the artificial light is coming in nicely. With the Helsingborg Music Festival on I wanted to get this unusual photo with a fun fair down at the harbour and a large tent in the main road leading up to the Helsingborg Castle. Which is where I took this photograph from actually.

More coming soon!

Lomma, Sweden (5)



It was so dark at this point that I had to focus on the triangular wood thingamabob just below the tungsten light, the boat in the water was proving impossible to lock on to. But thirty seconds of exposure managed to reveal details that my naked eye could not see. If you look too close there is some noise in the shadow areas, but in a normal size print (maybe up to 10" across) it will not be visible at all.

I like the contrast between the yellow under the lights and the blue sky, with the purple container on the left adding a little interest too.

The interesting building on the right with the mottled lighting on it is the Lomma Biblioteket (Library).

Inside St Petri Church - Malmö


With the predominance of white inside this church the exposure was a little trickier than I anticipated, but I think I got it about right in the end. The photo was taken from a low vantage point at the rear of the church, and so it was probably fitting that I was in fact on my knees in a church! :-)

Less is More! (Or... less costs more?)



I figure that if Andreas Gursky can sell THIS PHOTO for $4,338,500 then I should do OK with the photo above. Now if only I can figure out a way of making a rich collector think the same way...
;-)

Jag tänkte att om Andreas Gursky kan sälja detta foto för $ 4.338.500 då jag ska göra OK med bilden ovan. Nu om jag bara kan lista ut ett sätt att göra en rik samlare tänker på samma sätt...
