Christmas dinners in Kulturen, Lund
Lens: 18mm Camera: K20d Photo Location: Lund, S 
Posted By: Rense, 01-04-2010, 02:09 PM

Last week, me and my better half were in Lund, Southern Sweden. This small, lovely university city has a modest but very interesting open air museum (Kulturen),
with quite some old buildings. This time of year most tables were set for Christmas. I brought my RMC Tokina 17/3.5 with me and I shot several of these Christmas tables.
Handheld, all at f/3.5, and with only natural light. Hope you enjoy them!

Beautiful rustic scenes.
Nicely captured too with the small window light.
Very classic.

A tripod would have been handy here as you could have erhaps explored some different angles. The subject's good and the light was right but I just feel that you needed to be closer in doing still lifes, or further out with some figures to compliment the the scene. Nice photo's all the same and they bring a relatively unknown part of the world to our notice.

Rense, I really like these shots! I think that you did an excellent job of hand held photography. You were obviously working in a low light situation and made the best use of your camera and lens as possible. The tonal qualities are outstanding and I enjoy them very much.

Hi Justin, thanks! I know a tripod would be nice, but I think it's quite cumbersome to take it with me all the time....
