About the Image(s)

I captured this image in May this year. It is from a remote island on the western tip of Norway. Only one family were living there in the old days and now it is used by tourists that search for solitude. It is taken from a boat, so it was not much room for finding the right angle and os on. I decided to convert it to Black And White and a tint of Sepia to give it an old feeling.

Camera: Canon 5D mark 4 with Canon 24-70 mm f/2,8 lens at 50 mm
Settings: 1/250 sec, F/6,4, ISO 100

I agree with your choice to make this a b/w with toning and think you have done a good job of highlighting the buildings to draw the eye there. I like the placement of the buildings in the image and that there is room at both ends for them to fit in and provide a sense of place. I also like the darkened areas on the left side of the image and the framing by the tree. My only suggestions are to slightly and subtly darken the top right hillside and maybe lighten the darker part of the garage's roof.   Posted: 11/10/2019 19:29:17

Good choice to make this b/w. I would lighten up the roof on the barn/garage but the house is really the center of attention. A little more detail or contrast on the hillside might make the image pop some. I really like the sky in the b/w verses the color image.   Posted: 11/13/2019 14:24:20

Nice image! I like the b/w and sepia treatment. I agree with Michael about darking the left side and the hill. Since the house and outbuilding are the subject you could try to sharpen them a bit to bring out more detail in the wood siding and shingles.   Posted: 11/14/2019 22:01:20

Great idea to do this photo in B/W. It really has impact! I believe you have it correct to have the house the center of attraction. Just a very good photo and composition.   Posted: 11/16/2019 11:27:06

Arne,once again you make a great picture from a good one! Your conversion to B&W gves it more punch and emphasis. I like the lighting on the upper house, which draws attention to the main subject. I agree with most of the suggestions and have no other to add.   Posted: 11/24/2019 13:46:45
