Let me first add my "Welcome to the forum" greetings here. These are all very nice compositions but the colours, all but the last one are way off. Now, if they are that way on purpose that is fine and is your choice but if it is accidental you will need to do some PP.

Thanks for your comments Heinrich

But I have to say that all of those photos are colour-adjusted in photoshop. This was intentional.
Actually all of them have their own personality and expression. Though I`m not quite as satisfied with the most pixelated image as the other ones.

Larsenio, the compositions are quite good and I had feeling that you were deliberately trying to exaggerate the colours. However, the second last image (in the second set) does not fit the pattern of the others and immediately becomes recognizable as overdone. The scene itself is very interesting and well composed. Try a BW.

Beautiful! A desolate sort of place I think I'd like to visit.

The second one reminds me of this picture (lithograph???) "The Sea Troll" by Kittelsen.



Scandanavian gothic!

Thanks, JMR. And I agree, it`s completely overdone and doesn`t fit the pattern. But I saw that a bit late, when I added these photos, and shouldn`t have added It. Then again I don`t wish to just remove the picture because of this..
It would be wrong, I think.
Thanks for your comment

Knochelbiter: hehe, nice comparism That particular picture was one of my first photoshop-adjusted image. And for that reason it`s been overdone as I say above.
Like your troll, btw! Where I live, we call that "Havmannen" (roughly translated as "the man from the sea", or "seaman" in a scary way

Think I`ll try this picture in b&w. Sounds interesting!

Thanks, JMR. ... Thanks for your comment
Arsenio, don't know if you are aware, but you have dust spots (maybe water drops?) on that beautiful iceberg image. Can't tell with others. Give the sensor a clean. Or you can use that troll to shake the camera for you and call it Pentax's new shake-reduction feature- good only in Norway during sea storms!

This is an attempt at making this above-mentioned image a little better, and perhaps interesting

Haha, yeah I know about those drops and actually have a version where I removed them, but my PC is a chaos so I didn`t find the right one
It`s just because It was a terrible weather where I sat when taking that picture, don`t need a lense-cleaning now
The troll is scary!
