  1. I'm not happy with the images I shoot with my Olympus E-M10 combined with Nissan i40 flash. Even at fairly low iso values like iso 640 on this one there's quite a lot of noise and the end result I think is mediocre. Flash photography is not my forte, anyone tips for improvement?
  2. For sure these won't win a beauty contest but they look fascinating. Very nice subtle color palette in these lovely images.
  3. The invisible woman?
  4. I know Fons, it's on my to-visit-list
  5. Dallas, such a pity bookstores are diminishing in SA. Looking at and browsing all these beautiful books gives a special feeling. I'm not such an avid reader (I'm more visually oriented) but my wife reads lots of books. Luckily she mixes paper books with e-books otherwise we would have more than one room fully stacked with books! I'm partly with you on the style of Michael Freeman, I can manage one chapter at a time but it gives me food for thought and inspires me to explore different photography styles.
  6. Thanks Ann. It is a wonderful place indeed, there's also a lunch room and people visit this store not just for the books but as a tourist destination. The architect did a great job, just imagine what it must have been given carte blanche to convert a derilect church to such a magnificent place.
  7. Thanks Alan, much appreciated.
  8. Thanks Alan. Indeed not that easy to photograph especially the mixed light sources and uneven lighting are a challenge. In Holland we have quite of lot of museums which exhibit modern art and I've visited quite a few of them. We have an admission system called the Museumjaarkaart (Museum Year Card) by which you pay a fixed amount per year about $60 which gives you unlimited entrance to almost all museums. As a result a lot of people, especially babyboom generation pensioners, visit the museums. They have the spare time and the money needed to do this on a regular basis. Often they visit the city before or after their museum visit and have lunch or dinner. Life is good for most of us in the Netherlands. At (almost) age 59 I'm still at work for 4 days a week. Friday is my day off and usually I plan a visit to a city combined with museum and photography. So I'm kind of a pre-pensioner with all the benefits it brings, I consider myself a lucky man. An interesting video interview with the artist Link to the website of the artist
  9. Panorama scale 1:10 (imagine the size of the real thing!) of painting "German Peasants' War" by Werner Tübke. Museum De Fundatie Zwolle/Netherlands.
  10. Waanders in de Broeren. The old Broerenkerk (Broeren church) in Zwolle/Netherlands was converted into this magnificent bookstore. I had to visit and photograph this place, and buy a book of course (Creative Photography by Michael Freeman).
  11. Wow, excellent work Alan. I really like the composition, lighting and processing on this one.
  12. Great image. I like the bold complementary colors.
  13. A series of images shot at the Leap of Faith exhibition at museum De Fundatie in Zwolle/Netherlands featuring contemporary art by Joseph Klibansky. The last image (#9) features world-famous Miffy (or Nijntje in Dutch) by Dutch artist Dick Bruna, who died last Thursday at the age of 89. All (full size) images shot with Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 or Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  14. I agree with Ann. I would like to spent more time here and on other websites but the reality is time is limited. I simply don't have the time to visit every day and write comments. So liking a post or image is not just easy-going by me.
  15. Thanks Armando, I'm glad you like these. It is indeed a fascinating subject and open to the public so I was able to watch the cramped interior. Unbelievable on a boat of just 78m length there was a crew of 67 working and living together. And imagine what is was like when a submerged submarine was under attack from depth bombs. That must have been incredible frightening.
