          Some pictures from the conference centre:





          There was a quite uninteresting photo show being displayed, nobody seemed to be around to watch.

            The Fløibaren area is quite interesting. It's more spacious than on the other ships.




            The space makes it quite versatile.


            But at the same time a bit deserted.

              The area is also used to serve after dinner coffee.

                  A glass window between the staircase and the cafeteria.




                  They have actually installed a extra set of fire doors just to make it possible to display this window.

                    The cafeteria is nice, but not extraordinary in any way.




                    Together with the cafeteria you'll find the ships shop.






                    The entrance to the Finnmarken dining room.

                      Ok, it's a gangway, a nice gangway. But does it really have to be painted bright white? And why not change the illumination to something more interesting than fluorescent tubes?

                        Sometimes I feel like amazed... The way to cabin 204.




                        A lot of cupboards available!


                        One of these also includes a minisafe.


                        And a big desk to put your things on. No wonder that Finnmarken was used on the Australian charter. One of the doors also hides a fridge.


                        I guess this room is for a bag. Better not be a too big bag then.

                          Hello Tommi;
                          Thanks for your pictures from the interior of Finnmarken. You have a great eye for details. What impresses me most, is the absence of sloping lines. Do you use a lens with perspective control? Or do you correct it afterwards, in Photoshop?
                          Regards; Sigve.

                            Thank you Sigve.
                            Actually, I begun to think about those sloping lines when I was photographing interiors in old Finnmarken at the CVF autumn cruise 2011. Back then it was just a thought, but now it is something I consider very thoughtfully when composing the frames.
                            I use only ordinary lenses, it would probably be a bit un-practical with a tilt-shift lens when photographing without a tripod? I'm not doing any perspective corrections in the computer in normal pictures, just in multi-picture panoramas, but I spend quite much care in rotating the images correctly.
                            Actually, when I was working with these last pictures I came aware several times that I also need to adjust the tilt/swivel of the monitor - just for not be fooled by the perspective.

                            There are actually some sloping lines in the pictures, #840/2 is probably the best example. I recall there was a practical reason for those, probably something with composition of the rail in the foreground.

                              I had use of a wide angle “perspective control lens” back in the old days of 35mm film. When I say wide angle, it was 35mm, at a time when a typical “standard lens” was 50mm. It was simple and easy to use hand held. I’d totally forgotten about it until reading your post Tommi.

                              I tend to take the view regarding sloping lines and suchlike that just a little can look like a “mistake” whereas a bit more or a lot appears intentional if the whole is well composed! Same with “extreme exposures” used creatively.

                              Back to Finnmarken –it’s a wonderful collection of images you’ve taken Tommi, and everything from straightforward documentary to details.

                              Fløibaren never much appealed to me –I used to just go there to look at the paintings and the old photographs rather than to sit and stay. Your photo #836/5 is almost enough to make me change my mind and go sit on that curve of seats though – it so captures the mood of that Nupen painting.

                              I was actually looking at my photos of the stained glass in the café earlier yesterday, to choose something for a birthday card. Details of that glass are still, along with the Dagfinn Bakke cartoons, my favourite things on Finnmarken.

                              There was scarcely anyone ever in Babette’s Café as I remember it, but yours and other recent trip reports now suggest otherwise. Another time I’d be interested to try the “different” food now on offer there (I never saw the servery actually manned and serving!), and who knows, I might even adopt a favourite seat there! There are definitely some contenders in your photos Tommi.

                              Thank you so much for all you’ve shared from your trip.

                                Dear Tommi,

                                Lots of great shots from Finnmarken...

                                Just a tiny questions: those cabin furnitures, were they added for the Australian charter or were they also there originally?
