[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another shot from Reine Norway...one of the most beautiful and dramatic places I have ever seen. I worked as a physician in this region in 1972 for a year and it changed my life. This year Heidi and I met our friends who I lived with back then and spent a week in Lofoten. Reine is the most photogenic of all the places in this area.

Sorry I can't respond to comments...I will be home soon and will catch up.

Hello Roger, I don't know how, but this shot is so 3-dimensional.
There are so many textures here which seem emphasised by the b/w.
A good idea to include the man on the quay.Your enthusiasm for this place comes across so well.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Roger,
A beautiful place and great perpective .
good B & W presentation with amazing contrast & light,
Fantastic rock mountain on background,

Love the color tones you have awarded to this picture as they bring a 'timeless' feeling and great depth into the shot, Roger!

Details of the rocky hills are amazing and against the water channel they look even more charming and pleasing.
The light and exposure are well handled and low POV worked very well here.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards,

  • Great

Hi Roger.

Such impressive definition to textures, I love the fact you have this as b/w, so much dpeth and interest added. Every layer appears to jump out at you, neat work. tfs

stv ;o))

Hello Roger,
An amazing image that looks somewhat like a charcoal drawing. I looked hard to find something to criticise it by, but I really have no sugegstions for improvement. Even the water's edge across the middle of the image does not detract. If this were mine it would definitely be up on the wall. Would be interesting to know whether you did some PP. An excellent piece of photo art. Well done.

Hi Roger, great choice going with the b&w for this one. There is so much detail in the mountains and the clouds are a bonus. Fiona

Beautiful scene and ready made for B&W! Nicely captured with good dof with nice contrast. Very well done, tfs.

It's got a painting feel to it, very nice. This must be a really nice place and a calm bay. Laking a little bit of contrast, maybe? Not sure. TFS


bonjour Roger
Very nice landscape
Beautiful pov and perfect pp to give something near an old etching

Hellow Roger,
This is an encredibly striking image with emmense depth.Textures and tonal variations are classic.Interesting details throughout the image.Well done and TFS.

Wow...so many details to love...the sharpness, the contrast make everything so real again.I think you have met with your young Roger, in Norway...and I think you have smile to "him".
I smile when I read your note and after look your good photo.
