Svart-hvitt gjør seg. Skulle nesten ha fjernet bilene og satt inn hest og kjerre i stede.

Ja mappa nr 6 er favoritt-mappa mi. Der ligger alle godbitene sjø ;-)

Jeg bøyer meg i støvet, John! Fy sørn, de her bildan er jo bare rå!

Ang min fraværelse: Jeg lover å skjerpe meg;) Hi hi hi.

Og om jeg har vært å bada i dag? Nopp, men forrige gang jeg var der lå jeg litt uti vannet for å få med motivet (i slutten av Januar). Hahahaha, det var s...kaldt! Men jeg fikk bildet;)

Flotte bilder igjen John :) Likte nr 1 ekstra godt, det ble noe ekstra i lyset der, muligens pga at det er mer åpent der. Men lækkert vart det!

Flotte bilder. Herlig sort/hvitt-konvertering.

I thought I already commented on these shots, but evidently, I didn't! I can't believe the depth of these shots, especially the 1st one. How do you do it? I strive for that kind of depth - it's the camera! Kudos to you!

I am so enjoying your conversions... the brick pavements are absolutely wonderful and your photo's make them look so inviting!

#1 was so brilliant that why not have more? Great stuff.

Herlige bilder! Gamlebyn er fabelaktig. Når sommersesongen er igang, besøk gjerne humormuseet i gamlebyen også, verdens minste museum!

A fascinating, and very nicely captured, photograph.

Excellent B/W photos! Great depth and perspectives! I like how you contrast the old town with the new automobiles.

Mary said...

Wonderful shots, John! Did you use the topaz adjust plug-in on these, too? Is it easy to use? Beautiful!

Dragonstar said...

Beautiful, timeless shots. I love the sheen on the damp streets, which brings a glow to everything.

Aileni said...

These are so good, I don't know what more I can say. Pure delight.

KOSTAS said...

Dreamed classic creations!
Very beautiful photographs John! The 256 nuances of grey fill our eyes with astonishing subjects!
Congratulations!
