  • Replied in The ford
    In the northern part of Rold Skov, Denmark, there is an ancient ford - in use up until the beginning of the 19th century when a bridge was build a little further up stream. The stream - Lindenborg ...
  • Xmas here in Denmark is almost over. Unofficially it starts on the 23rd of December - in the evening. The 23rd was a beautifully moonlit night ... The panorama was made of 5 horizontal frames shot ...
  • Replied in Moon halo
    I know it's difficult to compete with the very competent and pro people over at the astro-forum. But I just had to share the halo experience from this evening with someone. A halo is basically a ...
  • I have just moved to FF, a Canon EOS 6D. The season here has turned to late fall - so we have started feeding the birds. The bird in the picture sure looks like a Carolina Chikadee ( Poecile ...
  • I really have no excuse for bringing basically the same motive as I did last month - other than the fact that's my daily view from where I live ... and then the colors, of course ;-) I shot it with ...
  • Created photo thread First try with Samyang on FF
    I just got my first FF - a Canon EOS 6D. And of course I had to try it out with my Samyang 14mm. I like the sharpness of the combination - but still have a lot to learn about PP ;-) The LP isn't ...
  • Mostly I use either my EF-S 17-55mm or my Samyang 14mm for landscapes. I do own a EF 70-200mm f/4 L (non IS) - But I tend to forget how good it is .. and normally I don't use it for landscapes. So ...
  • This weekend the finals in UCI World Cycling Tour Finals 2015 were held here in Denmark. I was lucky enough to have one of the routes pass quite near my house. So of course, I had to take some ...
  • Replied in Non auto fun
    I just bought a Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f2.8. No IS ... no aufocus either. And it's fun to use. I haven't been shooting manuel for several years but I do love to be back. It's almost like shooting ...
  • Nice set of Perseides' I did notice the same thing though  - the green colour - in the one good shot I made the other night. What's more: You see it in a lot of the Perseid captures on this site. ...
  • The shots were indeed made with the Samyang 14mm. But there is no electronic chip in the Samyang 14mm, so many cameras - among them my aging 600D - report 50mm as the FL. Also notice that aperture ...
  • Created discussion thread First attempts with Samyang 14mm
    Just bought the Samyang 14mm. And I like what I've seen untill now. I'm still on crop format Canon EOS 600D/T3i and the 100D/SL1... But I'm preparing to go FF in the near future. I think the ...
  • BIF is most certainly a possibility with the SL1. My SL 1 BIF shot of a Gull, was handheld - and the lens was the fine EF 100mm 2,8 macro (Non-L)
  • Created discussion thread Jumping spider
    Spring has arrived here in Denmark where I live. And with it the return of insects. I've always found spiders fascinating ... and especially the jumping spiders. I found one of them ( a Salticus ...
  • My daily view from the place in our house that I occupy as 'my' room is one of hills with trees. Rather nice - and sometimes dramatic: Saturday night the 21th of March
  • Created discussion thread Moo
    I really do like the SL1/100D .. combined with the EF-S 17-55mm.
  • Created discussion thread Nature finds a way
  • I do like it a tad' lighter in the foreground - not so sure about the increase in red. The morning was colorful - but then again - not THAT much :-)
  • Hi gsmith ! I like your interpretation very much ... Though it might be a little to HDR'ish for my taste :-)
  • Thanks :-) I see you live in Denmark ? They were actually taken in the Northern part of Jutland, Denmark. The hills in the distance are Rebild Bakker. They are my daily view, as I live in Gravlev ...
