[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On one of the many day tours I made during my photography vacation I came across this wonderful church. Its position on the end of the peninsula positioning it most beautifully in the Austnesfjorden.

Standing on top of a viewing plateau I was able to get a great view on the church. I used my tele lens to isolate the church from its surroundings and to flatten the perspective.

Hi Niek,
A splendid view in this vertical presentation. The high POV is just fantastic and the reflection of this church is just excellent.
I like the contrast in the landscape view with the mountains creating a very moody atmosphere.
Great DOF.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Niek,

Jolie vue sur cette petite église entre montagne et eau au bleu profond!!!
Son blanc immaculé la fait ressortir merveilleusement!!!
Quant à son reflet, il est splendide!!!

Hi Niek
This image is breathtaking. The contrasting colours and the overall splendour of the image is fantastic.

Hello Niek

Like the pOV of the church being dwarfed by the mountians in the background. A classic image from Norway with the red and white. Nice


Awesome capture! I like the vertical format. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

A beautiful scene! Excellent composition and vibrant colors. TFS

Hi Niek,

I like the slightly compressed perspective in your image,the rising mountain in the background gives a nice sense of size to the little church.


Hi Niek...great shot of this fjord and church....excellent tones and composition.


What a superb shot with amazing reflections against a wonderful landscape, dear Niek!

Love the location of the church, just lovely!
The picture is razor-sharp and light is beautifully managed.
Great composition!

Best regards,

Hi Niek,

Deze verticale uitzicht is prachtig, mooie kleuren en ik hou van de reflecties op het water.
De diepte van het veld is mooi, mooi beeldkwaliteit.
Een mooie plek om te bezoeken met zijn sublieme fjorden en bergen.
Een prachtige compositie en bedankt voor het delen met ons.
Een mooie week.

Hi Niek,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the lovely church with red roof and white wall standing on the end of peninsula. It's impressive in the steep mountain where snow on the opposite shore remains. The whole is harmonized well by good color balance and good composition. And, the reflection projected to the sea draws out a good effect for the whole.

Hahahah I've been there! seen that.... and shot it!
but... the weather was really terrible there.
I did get some really nice shots though!
from a different angle though ;-)

I particularly like the contrast and colors in this shot Niek... all in all this shot makes me feel a bit home sick for Norway............
