Enclosed four photos taken with the new Nikon Coolpix A - DX format camera. I'm very impressed with the level of details and the dynamic range that this camera can capture. Above photos has been through a post process in LR4, but that is also what we expect to be able to do with large RAW-files from the DX-sensor with no low pass filter.

Stone Fragments Among Leafs

Even on a cloudy day it's possible to find strong black & white photographic subjects - especially because the sky serves a a great softbox. When you go for a walk and bring you camera, try to look down! An amazing array of interesting subjects and pattern emerges right in front of you.

Here I found an array of stone fragments and leafs that created a interesting pattern - very suitable for a black & white representation. I hope you agree.

The photo was prepared in Lightroom and then converted to B&W in Silver Efex Pro 2.0.

CARMA - a bicycle build from car scrap

Everyone who know's me, that I'm both fond of cars and bicycles. If my life wasn't so dependent on the mobility (my workplace is far from home) and the load capacity of a car (for camera gear and my racing cycle), I would used the cycle a lot more for everyday transportation.

This project - CARMA - describes how some passionate souls created a bicycle from car scraps and send it on a mission.

Porous layers of Italy...

OMG - I have not posted on my blog for over a month. Starting up in a new position as CEO for Danimex Communication is occupying the main part of my waking hours.

I'm spending my time between three homes - my work home in S√łnderborg, my week-end home in Lyngby and my holiday home near Acqui Terme in Piedmont, Italy.  In between I'm traveling to interested places - Sorrento, Italy - Dubai, UAE - Johannesburg, South Africa - in March alone. It's a good time to get engulfed in my hobby - photography.

The photos here are not a visual metaphor representing my three homes :-) Not far from my home in Italy the old porous layers of compressed clay, limestone, chalk and other elements are visible just along side the old dirt road. Black and white is the best way to capture this display of natures fragility.
