Playing Around in the Winter


The city of Arendal is in Norway best known as a delightful summer resort. However, it is quite nice to play around here in winter too. As I obviously have been doing ...

Have a nice Week-end!

Bit of Photoshop, bit of HDR?

I used to play with Photoshop, but all I do now is a bit of contrast adjustment, plus some cropping, in Aperture on the Mac.

No zoo; from the back of a 4x4 in the Masai Mara.

Someone put a coat and muffler on those poor darlings.

Dette bilde er virkelig morsomt. Det er jo ingen ting som stemmer jo. Ikke ta det ille opp altså. Skal forklare hva jeg mener. Se på statuene, - her må jeg virkelig se nærmere etter, - står de på land eller i vann? Og husene, her passer liksom ikke naustene inn... eller er det motsatt,... husene til venstre passer ikke inn. Liksom litt kræsj. Artig. Og fargene i bilde er også morsomme. Knallfarger. Jeg spør meg selv om det passer inn ? Ja for meg gjør det det. Bilde blir liksom så rart og annerledes og jeg får veldig lyst til å kikke nærmere på det.

Om du ville at dette skulle bli et litt ... holdt på å si sært ... bilde, ja så har du oppnådd det. For meg i hvertfall. Og i tillegg får du meg til å smile.

Håper du forstår litt av det jeg prøver å si deg :)

The background of the homes climbing the hill is intriguing. A view with a story every direction you look. Lots of interest. -- barbara

Kjekt å leike litt, spesielt når resultatet blir så fint som dette :)

EG CameraGirl said...

It makes me shiver to see those unclothed statues! This is a good time of year to play in Photoshop, I think. :)

Banjo52 said...

That's a quietly weird and humorous collection of elements, RuneE. Well done. The clouds might intrigue me as much as the boys and ducks.

Irene said...

Ja, som GAWO sier, et merkelig bilde .... nakne barn midt på vinteren hehe. Hørt uttrykket "Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey"? Ramlet akkurat inn i hodet mitt her og nå da det ser uhyggelig kaldt ut (ser at vannet har frosset til).

Ha en fortsatt fin helg!

Love what you did with this photo. Just amazing, don't know were my eyes want to go fist.
Happy day my friend.
Oh and could somebody please give those kiddo's some warm sweaters....brrr I feel sorry for them (even if they're made out of bronze). ;0

Love the painting-like quality of the photo; but those pour naked kids ... aren't they cold? They must come from some pretty hardy stock ... heh, heh, he.

I like the composition in this winter scene.

Wenche said...

Så stilig, det ser ut som et maleri for meg...kunne bare klippet det ut og hengt det på veggen...flott Rune :0)

Bjarte Wergedahl said...

Har du flyttet statuene ut på marken? Ja, hva gjør man ikke for et godt bilde :)))
Artig bilde.

Emm in London said...

Wow, great shot! Is that the water all frozen up there? I bet those poor boy statues are very cold!
