City of Oulu autumn evening/night walk

City of Oulu autumn evening/night walk.

Gallery link for my dropbox gallery of images from a single walk around northern city of Oulu, Finland yesterday 07.09.2010.

Gear used tripod, K-7, 12-24mm, 35mm ltd, 50-135mm, variable ND filter.

I'm not really interested in jogging or other sports or exercises so It's good that I do photography because that gets you to get some fresh air. This particular walk was about 3 hours between 20.00-23.00

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Very interesting- but I think the use of crooked perspectives is a little bit excessive here!

Yes i get commented and my friends joke that all the time that I take too much crooked perspective shots, perhaps I'm just that "Crooked" myself.

It's just a habit and looks good to me. So when I'm just photographing "for me" like this walk I just happen to notice afterwards that especially with wide-angle shots my perspectives are usually very crooked!

thanks for the comment!

Looks familiar - apart from the house in the first pics, where is it? Nice picture, but I have to agree on the crookedness criticism. Especially in a series it's a bit too much.

(So there's still at least two Pentaxians in town after pasipasi abandoned ship)

I really enjoyed the b&w shot with the stoplight.

I like the first factory shot. I don`t find the crookedness real bothersome.
Almost time for first snow, is it not.

First building is a very new school in Oulu, and I very much like its architecture! and it's located in myllytulli district

@Ex Finn.

Hopefully it's not time for snow anytime soon ... and for the factory shots the difference is shutterspeed. First one is 20 sec and the second one is 322 seconds. And they're processed little differently also.


Yes I like it too, but I was too early with my shutter finger... I was trying to wait until that lady was in middle of the road and not in the shade of the building

thanks for comments I have to try and take more straight photos in the future!
