Around Tuira, Oulu, Finland
Posted By: pasipasi, 02-24-2009, 02:39 PM

Some from today . All from less than 1km from my apartment. I got off work at around 4:30pm and had a bit of sunlight left. Hopefully tomorrow the weather's gonna be just as good, as I get off work a bit earlier. Already 6 hours more sunlight per day than we had 2 months ago, it's great.

Nice shots, the first one reminds me of a song by Talking Heads - 'Road to Nowhere'

The second one I didn't like at first because initially the eyes are drawn to the OOF boats, it actually looks better to me in the smaller version on Flickr. What aperture did you use for that shot?
Third one has really nice colours, you might want to think about cropping out some of the sky or some of the foreground to improve the composition, as it is the horizon goes right across the middle which isn't usually so go compositionally.
#4 I like, the two small figures convey a sense of space and isolation.
The last two don't do a lot for me I'm afraid, #5 shouldn't be so centred.

I used f2 on the 2nd one and I thought I wouldn't want to see OOF hay so I focused on those. 3rd could use some cropping, I agree .

I think I really need to get a good normal zoom, maybe the tamron 17-50/2.8, that I'd really enjoy using. 50mm was a bit too tight yesterday in some photos and even though I had other primes in my bag, I don't want to change lenses all the time when I'm outside.

Thanks for the comments everyone
