    Thanks ddk.
    As mentionned earlier in this thread, you'd posted among the most interesting images here -that is , the former version of "fun with Nikon"
    A truly original vision.


    Leica77 - the last dancers image makes a fun balance with the other one you've posted on the same subject some days ago. Then a deep DOP and now a more than selective focus. A ttoal different approach and a complementary result. Nice.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Jorgen.

    It's from an area North of France called Thierarche.

    There's about 70 churches in a splendid, countryside, hilly, remote area where the Roman (not from Rome...) style churches from the 11-13th century had been turned into semi-military outpost in the 17th century -hence the "fortified" nature of these churches in an area without castles.

    Being somehow in the way of the Germans invaders (and long before that, the Dutch rogue batallions... the reason why they were fortified) some were destroyed by WW1 bombardments and more recently rehabilitated. So there's a great variety of them, still with a common feel.

    I'm currently into an assigment shooting the most significant, will post more in time -probably featuring various PP


    P.S. People around there are great, friendly fellows with sometimes 19th century -if not secular- traditions. You would just love it for portraits.

    Hello Corlan F.,
    I appreciate having your kind feedback. The stone church in northern France which is juxaposed with a boy on bicycle is a beautiful image. The semi-monochrome image enhances the historic depth and antiquity of the place. All the best, Leica 77

    Thank you - Not exactly sure what you mean here by "juxtaposed", so just in case: it's indeed one single photo with color post processing only

    You're right about the semi-monochrome, that was spot on the reason for this processing -it kinda gives those churches their original age back, where otherwise the later brick modifications tend to makes them look more recent.

    What gives their original age away is that, sturdy as they are, nothing is quite straight anymore. Not a parrallel wall, door or roof either. Old stones, and very, very old grounds.

    Here's another one -with a slightly different PP- proudly overlooking an old vllage:

    Hello Corlan F.
    Many thanks for your informative post and another beautiful image. It is wonderful that these monumental architectural legacies are well preserved through a number of restorations. These are truly significant heritage sites. All the best, Leica 77

    Wow, a wonderful world and history tour of some spectacular architecture. In their own way, the churches seem every bit as impressive as the skyscrapers. Making round with stone has always amazed me. Thanks to both of you.

    Thank you Corian, very kind. I really like this set from the church, the architecture is very interesting and your compositions bring it to life.

    Here's one from a current series that I'm working on

    Viablex - very nice IR/BW rendering in this series. The one below being my favorite in terms of composition, reflecting beauty and serenity. A true keeper.

    Hello Corlan F.,
    Many thanks for your kind feedback. The monument is the Monolith created by Gustav Vigeland. It is situated at Frogner Park in Oslo. The park is one of the landmarks of Oslo, visited by many people daily. The following link gives a pretty good historical account about the artist and the park itself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vigeland_Sculpture_Park. Best regards, Leica 77

    1774 is the correct year. King Christian VII, King of Denmark and Norway, lived from 1749 to 1808. The C7 on the stone is his monogram.

    Just a couple of flowers from the garden. When I'm lazy/tired, they make easy targets and I get my fix of pressing the shutter and pushing the pixels around. Happy Sunday! Have a great week everyone.

    Hi Tim,
    magnificent colors, i'm particularly fond of the first photo with the creamy oof greens contrast.

    It was kinda "even more fun" to find these when checking the thread today... as it happens sometimes, here's exactly what i working on and was intended to post here:






    And i agree garden flowers are casual, easily available targets for our lazy purposes

    Leica77 & Jorgen - thanks for the explanations.
    (btw the 77 thing was a pun, but you got that. Or did you ?)

    Hello ddk,
    Many thanks for your kind feedback. Your positive comments are much appreciated. I seem to do a fair amount of getting around for both business and pleasure. It is nice to have professional colleagues, relatives, and friends in different parts of the world. Cheers, Leica 77

    David,
    You should really visit the Vigeland Sculpture Park. Gustav Vigeland was a very interesting sculptor, with a style and a fantasy that never seizes to fascinate. I would love to see you real, human flesh version of the Monolith

    Lovely flowers, Corlan & Smith
