Just got back from 2 weeks in Norway, a beautiful country requiring loads of Gigabytes in your camera...:) I thought I would share a few pictures (first rough selection), this is the black and white part, will very likely post a bunch of color ones as well soon if anybody is interested...

All pictures taken with E-PL2 and E-PL3 and assorted lenses (mostly the Oly kitlens and 9-18, I am too lazy for primes unfortunately...:))

As for the trip, these were taken during 2 weeks travelling from Stavanger to Bergen to Flam and to the Balestrand area, with all the wonderful Fjords in between... For any Norwegian members on the site, I am jealous, you guys live in a beautiful country!

Thanks for looking, hope you like one or two!

Love your vision on Bryggen and the windy streets in Stavanger. And I especially like your B&W treatment. Very, very nice.

Absolutely great photos, very well composed, and great range of tonality and contrast in the monochrome renderings. I really love the minimalist nature of your compositions; the landscapes and architectural images are very lyrical and elegant. Well-done!

Aside from the content (which is great), I like the way that you've chosen a bright and clean look for the b&w images. This has also become my favourite method of processing in b&w.

Stunning images! They make me want to visit these locations and take 14 semesters worth of photography classes.

[I was just giving my wife a hard time about why she wouldn't let me print and hang my rural decay images in our home... just teasing her a bit really as I don't want to hang them either... and she sees your post and says "why can't you take pictures like those?" :rofl:]

Wow - what a feast for the eyes!

I need to take my time and go through each photograph more slowly to let each one stand on its own. I'm so glad, and interested, to see both your black and white versions as well as your color shots. I'm also very glad you've included your Flickr link in your signature line so I can see more.:biggrin: Am I correct that you have not included your B&W photos on Flickr?

So glad that Vidar saw your thread, too. I've been drooling over his country for years...and now I get to see even more of it! Many thanks, Pim!

Thanks BB! Good catch..:)! Yes I got back home from my vacation late Saturday evening and wanted to have a quick look at the pictures and did some quick B&W conversions. I did not really focus on the color ones as I would probably need more time for those (since I had more that worked better in color), so did those on Sunday and then posted a bunch of them on Flickr for friends and family. They are more the "vacation snapshots" as most of my friends and family don't understand B&W anyway...:) I prefer B&W for anything with lines, paterns, perspective etc. But looking more in detail on the Sunday I noticed a lot of very nice colors in a lot of the pictures (when I took them it was sometimes quite sunny as you can see and they are difficult to judge on the small LCD screen in bright conditions) so the color selection turned out significantly larger of course...

Anyway, I will very likely post the B&W selection on Flickr as well soon..:)
