Geiranger at Night

March 11th, 2013

When we stayed in Geiranger last summer, we spent one night in a small cabin just outside of the village. This was shot right next to our cabin around midnight.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM.

Photo Settings: 24mm, f/10, 30 seconds, ISO 100.

Ye gads, if that's Geiranger, weren't you (and by extension your cabin) on Ã…kerneset? I thought they stopped people from living/staying there due to landslide threat.

But regardless, this is an outstanding photo. Great job with the night shot. I'll admit to being biased to subject of fjords, especially the Norwegian ones. What settings did you use, and is this a single shot or a composite?

This is a nice framing and has a very nice lighting in the foreground. I also like the overall atmosphere. Unfortunately what I don't like distracts me so much, that I had to write a comment. Maybe you really wanted it that way, but if you want the image to look like a real photo, you should maybe consider my cons:

I think the potential of this image is wonderful! In my opinion you just overdid it. The sky looks unreal, the lighting is does not match the scene. To me it looks like you used LR's brush tool to darken the sky, but took it too far. It's too dark in my opinion, plus the line between sky and mountain on the right is strongly visible. Automatic mask tool? Looks like it to me. If you did everything a little more subtle, I think I'd love this picture. Best, Ingo

I hope you take this as well-meant, construcive criticism. I noticed this sky-phenomenon with a lot of your images here, so maybe it's something to think about.

Thank you for your criticism! Ã…kerneset is located farther away from Geiranger, this is closer (camping village just outside of town-center). I didn't know about the landslide though, that's alarming. This is a single exposure and the settings were f/10, 30 sec, 24mm.

I can see your point regarding the sky, the reason I wanted it to be dark is that the setting is in fact a night photo. However, beacause of the long exposure time, the sky came out as bright as in the day. I might have been a little quick using LR brush instead of the burn tool in cs4/5, that makes a more natural darkening result. Furthermore, I struggled quite a bit with the bright lines and I should have given it even more time.

That being said, it was my intention making this effect on the sky and making it dark (in this photo and other photos). I think many people like these kinds of skies while some don't. However, i will work further on the bright-line-issue.
