SkyWatch Friday


This is an attempt to create a HDR picture. 9 different exposures merged together.
I was watching this sunset monday this week. You see the lake Snåsavatn, north of Trondheim.

If you want to see more sunsets, sunrises, clouds and skies, please visit SWF Homepage.
Have a beautiful weekend.

  2. The end result is amazing, although I am guessing that any of those 9 is in itself amazing as well.

    I could feel the size of the sea. It's fab with the sunset low in the horizon like this.

  3. Det var imponerende. Den fine fargen i solnedgangen kom virkelig til sin rett.

    Jegt har ingen erfaring med den teknikken, men er ikke teoretisk tre bilder nok?

  4. For en norgesreklame du lager med alle dine vakre bilder - det ene mer nydelig enn det andre! Et skjønt bidrag til ukens SWF! Flott snøbilde under her også, men at du venter på snø er mer enn jeg kan fatte og begripe! Ha en flott SWF og ei fin helg! Klemmer**

  8. A stunning photo, it looks like you got the HDR down pretty good. The colors, softness and composition are just fantastic.

  9. Yes, the first one is a reflection, than my son throws a stone into the pond. You see the water ripples at the second photo.
    Thank you for your answer about the software.

  12. Wow, this is stunning! The colors are beautiful and I love that it looks as if you took this eye level with the water.

  15. Meget bra HDR jobb dette Ivar.
    Fine farger og flott dybde.
    Dette finnes mer spennende strekkninger enn E6 langs Snåsavatnet. :)

    Har rettet logo nå, det er ikke så greit å holde styr på dette vet du :)

  19. Good to start something new. To create HDR pictures is exciting because colours are changing in a nice way.
    Beautiful sunset in the center and nice changeable blue colour.
    Ha en fin SWF,
    Hilsen Hartmut

  20. What gorgeous creativity - I absolutely love your photo.

  21. Vakkert Ivar. Du har ikke besøkt den Snåsa gubben vel... :-)

    Jeg har besøkt melkekartongen på Tiller i dag og lagt den i blått lys, i morgen venter festningen..., jøss, og her sitter jeg og er livende redd for å bli bura inne...Men den som intet våger intet vinner, er det ikke slik.

  22. I always look forward to seeing your photos and you NEVER disappoint. Again, simply amazing. Happy Friday! :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. WOW WOW WOW, that is just amazing!

  24. Flott bilde og nydelige farger. Kunne kanskje hatt noe i forgrunnen, en stein, brygge, siv ... hvilket program bruker du til HDR? er det tatt i jPEG eller RAW? Ha en strålende og "motivrik" helg.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great shot Ivar, so beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Praktfullt! Likte så godt dybden i bildet:) Her er ikke like vakkert hver dag her hos meg. Når vi får den rett fra vest med vind og nedbør, så er det best å bruke andre siden av huset.
    Jepp, det er sendt ut flomvarsel, men jeg bor i høyden, på 130 meter, så jeg tror jeg skal gå tørrskodd;)
    Får håpe dere holder dere tørre på bena dere også!
    God helg!

  50. Hei du, det begynner å sving litt av saker og ting innimellom seg jeg. Innmari flott lys og stemning her :). Kunne ønsket meg uten den bebyggelsen på høyre side, men det var nok nær umulig da lyset i himmelen over er viktig.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Magnificent and magical landscape and sky! I don't know what else to say, this photo surely made many people here speechless.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ååååå, dette var nydelig! Huff, jeg gjentar meg selv hele tiden. Men jeg er så imponert over bildene dine. Hva med å lage en kalender av bildene dine og legge det ut for salg? Jeg hadde kommet til å kjøpt den:)

    Ha ei kjempekos helg:)

  61. A stunning wide angle view which draws the eye to the focal point which is the sunrise - well done!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Someone forgot to turn the light off!
    Great talented work. The best is that I don't even imagine the technic for this picture, I just dream watching it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Gorgeous! And the colors are peaceful and vivid at the same time.
    Happy weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow - I'd call this one a success. I haven't played around with HRD, but you're certainly inspiring me to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The result is very impressive, amazing.

    One of these days, i´ll try something like this. Could you tell me, please, how did you did it?
    What software did you use to make the HDR picture?

    (hope you understand my bad english, ... sorry)

    ReplyDelete
  66. That's a grand picture Ivar.
    Nice effect.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Great shot that shows the dimension of the area. The cloud reflection really adds to the image.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I have no idea how the 9 exposures helped it but it looks great. The partially rippled water adds a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ivar- I think you have done quite well. Balancing realism with imagination is the tricky part in HDR, and I think you've presented a very real looking image.
