Two iconic Icelandic cityscapes +1
« on: August 08, 2020, 12:23:44 pm »

While I mostly photograph natural landscapes, I also enjoy a lot working on cityscapes. In this post, I'll share with you three images of iconic man-made buildings, shot in Iceland during two different trips there. All images have been shot with Hasselblad​ X1D II, Hasselblad XCD 21mm with Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters on the first two of them. First, the Gotham-city like Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik, Iceland. Exposure was 203 seconds:



Then, the iconic Sun Voyager in Reykjavik, Iceland. Exposure here was "just" 91 seconds:⁠



And finally, a repost of Northern Lights over the Black Church at Budir, which I revisited, cropping the image a bit on the right side to de-center the church a bit more (a change inspired by a forum comment, actually). Exposure for this one was a meagre 23 seconds, camera was the original X1D and of course no filters for this one:



Thank you for viewing, best regards

Vieri

All excellent, of course.
That is the best view of the Sun Voyager that I've seen.

All hand-held, of course. I find my hand gets a bit shaky even at a mere 23 seconds.   :D

Yes, me too. The Sun Voyager seems to flow along with the clouds.

Just as well Ivo isn't here any more. He doesn't approve of photographing the Sun Voyager.

I love all three, Vieri.

Thank you very much Eric, glad you enjoyed them and thanks especially for the Sun Voyager, much appreciated! :)

Yes, all hand-held of course... After years and years of immobility training, I am fine up to 205 seconds, so the 203 for the church was a bit pushing it but it turned out ok I guess! :D :D :D

Thank you very much indeed Francois, glad you enjoyed it! :)

Hello Frans, sorry about that - I can see them just fine here. Perhaps some firewall thing you have, since they are linked from my server?

Just as well Ivo isn't here any more. He doesn't approve of photographing the Sun Voyager.

I love all three, Vieri.
