Yes, we have had nice weather for a change and of course I took the chance to shoot a roll. Tell me what you think.

I like the photos, it took me a while to realize they were from Uppsala though.

Jim, I can really appreciate that first image. That is a tough shot because you are facing the sun. I like the way you framed it off to the upper left corner. This is where the dynamic range of film seems to have an advantage over digital..It is a beautiful image with great tones...Well done.

On the second image, I would crop the upper 2/3rds of it off. There is allot of wasted space and it will give it the appearance of it being straight. The crookedness of the image bugs me. Now in saying that, when I move the scroll bar to give it that cropped look, a marvelous image appears..Very unique is that bike wheel sticking up between the ice....Very cool.

In the third image, while it is not my type of image, I can appreciate the textures and the sharpness leading into smooth bokeh...Nice.

The fourth image, is my favorite of the images you posted. Great composition and great use of the lens. I love paths and this is one fine image. The only thing I would do is clone the scratch out. Nice..

The fifth image is a plain great street shot!!!!......

The sixth is also very good. The only thing I would do is perhaps increase the contrast a tad...

Jim, what lens where you using?
Great work....

Thanks everyone!

@uffepuffe: might be hard to tell, but the castle should have maybe tipped you off?

@jgredline: Yes I was also a bit surprised with the DR that I got, I usually shoot slides so this wasn't expecting to get both the clouds and the shadows.

About the second shot, I hadn't thought about cropping it but when you say so it kind of looks good it was supposed to be straight but... oh I don't know.

Fourth image, I took a couple of images with different lenses there and this one turned out the best. The scratch, though I think it's a hair, is ugly but I'll make it disappear next time.

About the fifth, I just can't believe that 1. a boat sank 2. I was there to see it and 3. I had my camera with me! These things just don't happen. I love the guy's expression looking down at the boat thinking "well... this is gonna take a while..."

I know it's not important but it damn right is interesting to know! Happy I'm not the only one always wanting to know the equipment used.

The lenses then, all mounted on an LX.
nr 1. Sigma 16mm 2.8 fisheye (I really like how it handled the strong sun!!)
nr 2. Pentax 50mm 1.4
nr 3. Pentax 135mm 2.5
nr 4. Pentax 50mm 1.4
nr 5. Pentax 135mm 2.5
nr 6. Pentax 50mm 1.4

Jimfear, no kidding, i live five minutes away so i should have noticed earlier.
The classic bike-in-furious-river-photo should have been a clue as well.
