Good to have you back Martynas! Great pics. What makes the little footprints on the rooftops?

Common! It was Santa Claus.
But what makes me wonder is their heating system; why chimneys are covered with snow or rocks? I don't think electricity is cheap in Europe, so what keeps them warm beside 'Finlandia Vodka'?

Fabulous images, Diploneis. I am curious about the shadows on the first two pictures; what time of a day did you take the shots?

It's not a heating oil!

I don't think the rocks would stop the smoke from exiting. Well, except maybe that first one. Possibly the fireplaces have been closed up and central heating added. The lids and rocks would stop it from snowing in.

Thank you all!

JochenB: family!

Taylor: I bet is him )) The only Norwegian I met on the streets )) -







JaKO & Cartsten - Carsten is right. There are openings on the sides of chimneys, if you look closer. And they are covered on the top with stone plate so it doesn't snow into the chimney, and another stone on the top so winds do not blow the stone plate away! And I took these images in late afternoon...

It is the photographer and post process skill, taste I have hard time to believe Lens and camera color.(unless we are talking old lens with faulty coating to today's standard) the keen eyes of photographer dominate the color and quality of his/her images more than anything else.

for example, for the same canikon or Leica file, C1 and LR4 could have totally different color basement.

So I don't take it as a religion change once people change platform no matter sony, canikon or Leica. Just my 2C.


edit: there might be difference in terms of profile between company, but hardly dominate compare to person behind it.

Thanks!

Yes, the D700 at base iso. As I said earlier in this thread somewhere, lately I've been really hooked on the colours produced by [what I assume] is the zeiss lenses (o/c in combination with an appropriate post processing from raw). Having only two other non zeiss lenses (Nikkor 2.8/180 and 2.8/24-70) I can not say for certain if this is specific to Zeiss or some placebo effect, but I'm happy about the performance non the less.

Now I'm shooting mainly with D3x and try to keep it at base iso as well, almost purely for the colours.

this is with the medium format hasselblad lens 2.8/80 (non T* coated) on d3x

I tend to agree, first and foremost in most cases (thankfully) is the photog, but I remember using the older nikkor ai and ais lenses. Although sharp, they had far from the saturated colours and contrast the newer lenses have. The difference seem to be coating mainly.

So actually it's not the coating as the most colorful lens I have is the non T* coated medium format 2.8/80

Coatings can shift colors, T* does have that signature shift to magenta/blue, at least that old one on C/Y. Newer has sorta "polarizer" like colors (when boosted via saturation).

In case of that Hassy lens, its probably due good glass itself. Tho some coating is most likely there too.

Sure its about photographer I dont deny that (even tho its not obvious Im taking some photos too sometimes ). I was just curious what made those colors look like this. Mostly D700 colors look all the same, just different PP tweaks, but base is same. These two look a lot different.. Plus it has really impressive amount of details. I guess you had great light too.

Dont take it as denial of skill, I never do that.

Really like those BW interpretations of Röros diploneis. It's a picturesque place for sure but you add something to the scene.
