          Not too often we see 50 year old original photos here, impressive.

          I feel honoured to dip into your archives. You delight me daily here in your Gallery, Sigve.
          Having wonderful recent pictures of Nordsternen in various threads along with this, and all experiences of our own members, is making this forum extra special in a way that really touches me.

        This is an absolutely wonderful thread with so much to see and study.

        I have spent quite some time looking back at old pages, and found in particular the images of Gudvangen (and her scrapping) interesting.

        Your archive is very impressive, and you add a lot of great shots that inspire to continue others to keep on photographing!

          Thank you, all three of you, for your nice comments. The #333 picture of Nordstjernen is one of my oldest pictures, taken with a 6x6 two-eyed reflex Flexaret camera, bought with money from my confirmation. I wasn't interested in ships or maritime matters at that time, but took the picture all the same.

          On todays picture, Kong Harald is departing Molde as Nordstjernen is docking. April 2008. I was "minicruising" Bergen - Trondheim - Bergen with Nordstjernen and Lofoten. A veteran minicruise...

            A wonderful mood that you have captured in your latest image also.

                    Nice angle.
                    Anyone remember when they stopped taking cars on the old ships?

                  I found some pictures that I had forgotten; Black Prince in Flåm, May 16, 1992. It is a joy to look at pictures of this splendid ship at anchor in Flåm and departing on the mighty Aurlandsfjorden. A beauty like this is not likely to be seen again!

                  (See former posts about Black Prince in this thread. I have traveled with her. That was a joy! How sad she is gone by now!)

                    Scanning old black & white negatives can be demanding. They are often full of dust and stripes. And the scanner loves every dust spot and reproduces them with great clarity. I can’t use the scanners digital ICE function (Digital image correction and enhancement) on black & white film because of its transparent film base, the ICE only works on films with black/dark base. So the scanned picture isn’t often much to brag about.

                    This is an example of such a negative directly from the scanner.



                    (Black Prince in Flåm. The picture was taken on May 16, 1992.)

                    There is a lot of work to do in Photoshop, manually. You have to retouch every dust spot by using the clone stamp tool. Then you have to use the usual curve and levels tools to get the tones and contrast right. And some other tools.



                    What I do is actually restoring the picture. Work that sometimes can take an hour and give a sore mouse arm. On this picture I didn’t use so much time, but nevertheless I have such an arm now.

                      I’m impressed Sigve by the amount of time and care and patience you put into digitising your early photographs.

                    Two beauties in the same picture; Nordstjernen and Albatros in Flåm, June 4, 2006. Nordstjernen on her 50th anniversary cruise.

                        Fjord horses and cows - those are very familiar motifs for me.
