Dang, you have sunlight in Stockholm this time of year! You must have gone out for a photo shoot at noon.
I like your shots. Would like it even more if I were there taking them. But not until summer.

Thanks all for looking

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment - I would have posted a few more but PBase is currently down, so even the previously posted images don't appear right now...

Best regards,
Lars

When looking at #1, my first thought was you were in the USA. There is a Chevrolet Van with a US license plate! Then I saw the speed limit sign! Very interesting. I'm glad you took the time to share views of your home town with us. Very nice photos.

Ha! I hadn't caught that! But you are right (unless there are European tags that look exactly like NY tags) There is also what looks like a UPS truck further up on the right! Are you sure this isn't St. Paul MN?

It's Stockholm alright ;)

Many American car models have this US looking license plate to better fit the design of the car. However, the plate is Swedish - three letters to the left, tax seal in the middle, and three number to the right.

Equipment

Thanks again for all the positive feedback.

Equipment used: K10D and DA21 + DA70. All shot in RAW (DNG). Post processed in Photoshop Elements 5.0.

About half of the images have been color adjusted; I tones down the red/orange cast that became a little too exagerated compared to what the scenes looked like to my eyes. A few were slightly rotated and cropped. Finally reduced in size (max width = 900, max height = 700) and sharpened.

If you want to know exactly which lens was used and full EXIF data for a particular shot, please see the info benieth each images in the PBase gallery:

And feel welcome to visdit Sweden anytime. It's no problem to fill 5 x 2GB SD cards by just walking around.

Best regards,
Lars
