#3 The rocky coast at Hammershus



#4 On the coast path



#5 Coastal landscape

#7 Listed manor



#8 Behind the Svaneke smokehouse



#9 Chimneys



#10 Svaneke - view from afar

Thanks for viewing! C&C always welcome!

Harald, a very interesting take.
I'm one of those who prefers my cup of tea to be from the natural visible spectrum, but #1 and #4 are most appealing, and #8 and #9 are a real knock-out.
Thanks for posting.

As a series I like the consistent feel and look of your processing with the "path" leading line shots (#'s 4, 5 and 7) taking to the IR/processing particularly well. And then there is #9, a subject I have seen before, but here it is particularly striking - my favorite of the group (I'm always drawn to simple, especially "geometric", images). #8 - compositionally superb with the tree at the left edge being a crucial element of balance and interest, small but very important to my eye; the long exposure effect of the sky coming from the left edge is a nice touch as well (I assume you are using a filter to get the IR effect). Maybe a little more room above the arch in #2?

Love these, great toning. As for the best i have a strong preference for #1 by a large margin. Great work Harald .

I am not always a fan of IR, but these are great! All beautiful, but #8 is the winner for me.

Great series Harald.
I'm captivated by #2 - particularly the way the foreground has such palpable texture/microcontrast whereas the background is framed & has a dreamy unreal feel from the IR.
But there's lots for me to like in #1, 4, 7 & 9 as well.
At first I was really taken with #8 as well. But then I noticed the rubbish bins. Sorry but I just cannot unsee them.

Congrats on an excellent series.
