    The thing I dislike the most is all the discolouring one gets with a digital camera, but thats maybe something you cant avoid?

    Hey these are really nice photos. I especially like the foggy road in Sweden.

    I would have liked to have seen the horse's whole head in that last one, but the choice was yours...I do like the little hairs.

    When it comes to colours in digital...it may be just your white balance settings...maybe play with those...take the same shots in different settings to see what they yield.

    I mean little things like the violett shade from the window on petur.
    Then the camera tends to get flodded with light, cant photograph a sky. I have some options when it comes to simulated ISO, 100, 200 or 400. I usualy try to make it less light sensitive when taking a photo like the one below but the sky always looks thesame. (Though I took this photo just for the wonderful color on the trees )

    uff... i envy your icelandic visit, i've been dying to get there.. Anyway, keep up the good work and you'll even be that much better once the new camera is factored in the equation.

    BTW... you should seriously consider exploiting your grandmas wall paper as a backdrop for portrait's or single object shots.

    Jupps, trying to learn the icelandic

    And speaking of using the wallpaper... that would actually include finding a spot not covered by something, plates or dolls or frames etc

    I enjoy the photos of people's neighborhoods, friends, and the things close at hand. It reminds me of the opening paragraphs of a novel. Your start is terrific, to my eyes.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your winter photographs... will you have to use a flash?

    We do get a couple of hours of sunlight when in Sweden. Its worse in Reykjavik, fewer hours and then there's fjords where the sun never rises above the mountains.

    Besides, if I use a flash on my crummy pocketcamera, it all looks really bad

    Welcome 2 u 2!
    The last posted link and page is meant to be seen more as an excursion in a town. I never really intended to ask for critics on each individual picture in the link, but more show people the Reykjavik I know. See it as one very loooong picture.
    It's bad compression on it though, sorry bout that, got closed down by my webhotel for using too much bandwidth when the photos where better quality.


    I'll think about numbering or naming pictures in the thread in the future though.

    Iceland is an amazing country to visit. So many neat things to look at. I liked much of the graffiti adorning walls around Reykjavik. It's the first country I ever visited on my own with out my family and I got to experience their culture night along with a marathon. Warm friendly people.
