Someone you love

I’ve chosen this image for the open Valentine’s exhibition on Lenscratch. It was originally in color as I rarely work with B&W. But chance made me rework the image and I feel it became even stronger. It’s one of my favorite images from all of last year.

Another straight forward B&W conversion in Lightroom 5. There’s something about the lack of colours in the fog with frosted surfaces that made me want to try to work with B&W a bit. On the other hand, the lack of colour makes what little is there all the more interesting – at least to me 🙂 I also fear I don’t know enough about how light works with B&W expressions so more practice is on my list.


I’m sorry about my resent instability. My goal is to post one picture a day – and do it every day. This time my excuse is related to photos. I’ve spent all day yesterday working on my latest website, and I’m pretty darn proud that I shot all the pictures that I use for the design.

I decided to go with the theme of water. I also locked myself into using a black/white/red color scheme. Finally the water had to surround the island, I live on.

The pictures don’t look their best yet. I used the ‘kindergarten’ tools – color conversion on my Nikon and fine tuning with Picasa. In time they’ll get top notch Photoshop treatment. But if you want to see the result so far it’s here: (the content is in Danish so don’t expect to understand it :-))
