Nikon D 5000 vs. Nikon D7100

both tested with Sigma 70-200 mm 1/2,8 + Sigma 2.0 converter. There is a little difference in fact….

post production…..

Last summer I was in Scandinavia for three weeks. The day Anders Breivik killed 70 young socialist at the island utoya and bombed the gov.-quarter inOslo we didn’t hear about it ’cause we were in the mountains. There I shot a panorama of Sognefjellet (a part of Jotunheimen which are the highest mountains in Norway). The high contrast the lights made were difficult to capture (particularly if you want to shoot a HDR when the clouds are moving so fast and the tripod is not the best….

When I came home I tried the first stitch (1) and made some corrections – hmmm the result wasn’t that good – look at the clouds (crop 1). A few weeks ago I started a second try (2 and crop 2). The first thing was that I corrected the aperture in RAW then I stitched the images (5 pieces) and afterwards some editing in CS 4…

What did I learn: I need some more time to shoot to utilize the performance of my camera so I can save a lot of time in post production – and I need a better tripod (done!)…

Next start for a project is tomorrow. We’ll have a little vacation at the North Sea. I want some magic light ๐Ÿ˜‰

btw. I’ll print the stitch in 170 x 70 cm when I’m back!

btw I never lived to see such a bad weather in Norway in my whole life (and I’ve been a lot of times up there)…


Death Reminds live @ Rock against National-Socialism

Well Death Reminds is one of the 4 juvenile bands who traveled around Scandinavia with the Tour-Project I was with as the musical leader of that project. Here they performed at a rock festival that ran one day before the election in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern . The good news is that the Nazis lost loyalists but they are still in the parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (and that’s the bad news)……


I suppose you can see what kind of music they play ๐Ÿ˜‰


Good Morning

Do you wanna fly with me?

of a beautiful day

with a wonderful light…

blossoming roses…

with you

 

 

 


4th Day Of Spring

The first sunny day that makes me really feel that spring is in the air.

I tried to capture the beautiful light you can live to see here at the Coast of the North Sea…

(by the way I made no changes in colors andย  saturation – what you see is true reality)

… a World Heritage – natural site. Only a few places are like this unique area.

flying…

and chilling out…..

And if you turn around you’ll see the legendary “Westerhever Lighthouse”

 

We were lucky that we both could spend a little time far away from our projects we are working in for a few days.

So we decided to make a day trip to several places at the North Sea coast. Husum the hometown of the

famous poet Theodor Storm (I’m sure he would be honored with the Nobel Prize for Literature if he was born a few years later)

was another destination we visited that day. I suppose there’s no place where you can see so many crocuses at one place like here

Happy Weekend to you all – and….

lots of sunny days too!
