    Thank you, both!

    I feel like Kristiansund is "fotografert ihjel" (as we say in Norwegian). You guys must help me find a suitable English expression.
    Therefore I feel the need to go more into the details of the city, and try to find motifs none of the "hundreds" of photographers in Kristiansund has yet to discover.
    It's getting more and more difficult.

      My pleasure.

      Just look at the Trondheim-thread! It's dead, well, apart from my own posts. I have "photographed-to-dead" most of the threads I post to.

      You keep on sparking interest with your photographs, and your techniques are really great. Keep at it, my man, you are doing very well.

        YEEEEEEHAAAAAAA!!!!!! I won my very first serious photography contest!

        We have a few "icons" in Kristiansund which we have to take care of to let the picture of the city be unfractured; sundbåten, the fireboat Slukk II, Varden, Bautaen and our old 'brygger' (sea warehouses) along the waterfront of the harbor.
        An hour ago I got a phone-call from the jury in the photography contest 'Bryggene i Kristiansund', telling me that there were two ladies on third and second place, but I got away with the first price.
        I will receive words from the jury as to why my picture won, the price (whatever that may be) and nice words with applause at Dødeladen café Thursday at a seminar from 09:30 to 10:30 about how to take care of and use the warehouses in the future, where the Minister of Environment and Culture Mr. Ola Elvestuen will hand over the price.

        What a day can bring if one get out of bed!

        What picture won?

        Well, it is from the roof of the Jonas Eriksen ware house in Vågen, and I called it 'Stairways to Heaven', as Master Photographer Morten Krogvold once said; "when you walk around with your camera, look 5 or 10 meters up from where you usually look. Discover your place, city, town in a new way".

        And here it is:

          Congratulations!!! And that picture is really good. Nice focus on the centre, while sharpness is fading away in all directions.

          Oh my ...what wonderful news Svein! Congratulations indeed! And so well deserved, not only for this image but for the serious and dedicated way you have taken up photography, and especially how you have used your aptitude and skills in praise and support of your city.

            Thank you, thank you.
            Latest; a christian school further south asked me if they could use my picture in a biblical education setting. They see something religious in it. Of course I said yes :-)

            And I almost forgot; the Minister and Photographer ;-)

                Oh my, this is so thrilling and makes me feel so proud of our Sterkoder! . So many photographic achievements, not to mention a talented photography student daughter!

                I think this is definitely the moment to suggest something to our admins here on CVF.
                It's about time (=long overdue) that I relinquished that Official Photographer rank here on the forum and appoint Sir Sterkoder. Then with DS Lyngen in the North, Captain in the middle, and Sterkoder farther south along the "Hurtigruten Coast" we are well and better covered with real photographers

                  Hi Svein
                  Congratulations on the first place in the photo competition.
                  It is a well-deserved honor, with all your contributions from Kristiansund and the surrounding area.
                  Best wishes from Bengt Domben

                    Sunday afternoon at the city square in front of the City Hall. If hungry, you can buy taco and other Mexican take-away from that colorful caravan down there

                    Vågen, a unique area in Kristiansund. Near the picture center you see the stone built Nordlandet church from 1914. The white large building/sea ware house with the orange roof is the Milnbryggen where the Klippfish museum is located. The new building with flat roof to the right there is the brand new Kranaskjæret Restaurant, and the new brygge/sea warehouse being built there (with the temporary golden looking roof) is to become the main office and headquarter for LERØY Salmon fishfarm company in central Norway. As you see, it is fully possible to build new nice looking buildings to fit into the environment. We don't have to erect square blocks every time we build new buildings/houses.

                    Two helicopter eggs (haha) at the port cargo terminal near the hurtigruten quay. When cracked, they will become Aerospatiale AS-225 SuperPuma (now Eurocopter EC-225) helicopters.
                    They came wrapped from Africa to be stored on long term basis at the airport. Someone delivered (and someone received them) wrong, and instead of unloading at Vestbase near the airport, they were unloaded in the middle of the city.
                    So now some vise guys discuss how to get them in a safe way to the airport through narrow streets and under bridges...

                      ohhh.... my helicopters have arrived! Not!

                      You have a beautiful city, Sterkoder, it will always have a special place in our hearts.

                      I must say, Hjelm Waage is a beauty. Such a classical and well proportioned shape. The perfect rescue vessel and private yacht, or whatever you wish to use it as.

                          The old ferries have been a saviour many a time... they don't build ferries like that anymore. She is not a beauty in the right sense of the word, but she is ..... ehhh... charming(?).

                            Oh i like #1649/1, how often do we have the opportunity to see three ships with round sterns on a harbour picture today. This is really nostagic.
