      Nice sunset, ombugge, and a far cry from the wet, and overcast weather a little further north!

        Beautiful - a combination silhouette/sunset image. That is almost what we call a mackerel sky.

          After the sun had set over the museum ship F304 Narvik at Karljohansvern in Horten it filled the sky with colours that lasted for over an hour

              A bit of amazing yes!

            HOLY BELONY!

            Me like belony, and me like these.

            The completely silent waters are such a perfect framing for the entire shot - you are there at the right time, with the right knowledge and perhaps with a great.... ehhh.... tripod / camera!

                    Beautiful. They remind me of Ombugge's first two sunrise images at #1003. I love the ripples of the current marking the water.

                  Not at the exact time of sunrise, but yesterday it was possible to point the camera directly at the Sun and take a picture (no filter here)

                    The sun - I wish it would give us a much longer midnight-sun period.

                    The lightest shift period at night watch lasts only twice each year - then it gets noticeably darker every day.

                          Thijs! I truly think this is one of the very best images you have ever taken.
                          Absolutely my favourite in the landscape/skyscape category anyway, with your "Happy feet" unusual view in the seagull category
                          Not quite decided on my favourite cat or favourite ship yet

                          Thanks Cecilia

                          I want to make a image of a mill silhuette, too sad of the trees around it.
                          Also the road can be disturbing, so central.
                          Nice point of it that the road goes up to the dyke, so also up to the sky

                          the nice thing of taking images with a smartphone , you don't have to look through it to see what you're looking at


                        I want to make a image of a mill silhuette, to sad of the trees around it.
                        Also the roatd can be disturbing, so central.
                        Ah no, Thijs - the delicate tracery of the trees around the mill offsets its solid bulk and the firm, straight lines of the sails above. Anyone can take a photo of a mill standing silhouetted against the sky but this is different. It emphasises contrast between man-made.and natural. You stop to admire,. not just thinking "Oh yes, a mill" and then walking on.
                        And the road is offset to one side, not dead centre, and what I like particularly about this picture is the glimmering point of the approaching vehicle headlamp right at what is called the vanishing point of perspective. It is not intrusive, but it is just there, drawing the eye. Perhaps unconsciously, you are using the two-thirds rule, with the vanishing point (which you emphasise with the straight road), two-thirds of the way top to bottom and left to right in the picture. This is a rule made to be broken, I strongly believe, but here it is very satisfactory.
                        You have a natural sense of balance in your photos, even if taken while speeding along roads with a coffee in one hand, phone in the other and feet up on the table.

                          Thijs ... Ivy has expressed exactly what I was thinking makes your photo so very special ...especially those headlights . As she says, you have a natural sense of balance and flair. So just believe us ladies and don't be modest!

                          Thanks ladies.

                          Want i wanted to express about the road in the centre, was it's so massive eye catching line though not in the middle , but as a headline so the middlepiint of the image.
                          Also i hated it that the car came over the dyke, for me another disturbing object.

                          The 2/3 line i try to hold on, but i only watch it for horizontal lines, not the vertical lines.

                          Well they make it easier for me to make images like that.
                          I only have to steer.
                          The distance radar on the cruise controle keeps the distance to the car in front.
                          When that one breaks, the merc will too.
                          When ot accelerate again ,the merc will too.
                          All the time i can keep my feet on the dashboard.

                          Wel different people , different thoughts.

                          I mainly look to a image, not if everything is in perspective.

                          Maybe i have to look different to a image.
                          Since a member here, i try to avoid disturbing objects.
                          Like shipspotting at tye coast, always try to make an image without the mushrooms, the radarpost, other vessels around "my" vessel.
                          With the truck avoid taken a light post in the background.
                          So i try to get things away from my objects,and in this case the lights, the trees,the road, but there issn't always the possabelity to avoid it.
                          I vanished already a lot of bugs corps from the screen.
                          Before i was a member here and in the beginnig fase ,so from the camera on cvf
