Challenge: Free Study 2013-02 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2013 Challenges
Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Date: Feb 9, 2013
Aperture: 7.1
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/160
Date Uploaded: Feb 28, 2013

Not a huge number of images taken in Feb, approx 100 - most of the 100 were discarded. Quite happy to find this one - I quite like it, it is representative of the Gamlastan (Old Town) in Stocklholm on a grey winter's day. The light was really flat.

Still loving that ISO 1600 is so usable from this camera. I could not have used an ISO 1600 shot from the D300.

Congrats on the top 10, you should be able to deal with flat light coming from the north west ;-)

Excellent image deserving its tip 10 spot.

It's wonderful that this did so well. It really struck me at first glance as being simply excellent.

Iso 1600? Seriously? Wow. I like this picture. Did you HDR it?

May I ask why the ISO was bumped so high? The scene looks properly lit. Or is it because of that high ISO?

Looks like a place where I would want to live - if it wasn't for the low temperatures. Excellent shot, I like the colors and the peacefulness of the image. Wonder if you used a T/S lens to manage the distortion? Anyway, my fav in the challenge.

Perfect title. Amazing colors and depth - feels almost three dimensional. And ever so peaceful!

I think this is just charming - my favorite of the "still life" type images. The light, tones, and subject are all delightful. Lots of cool details to explore yet the over-all effect is one of simplicity. 10 Voted earlier.

I love the colors in this one. The warm golds of the one house wall is a nice contrast to the gray of the next building. Not to mention it adds warmth to the scene where winter white blankets the ground.

This is perfect. Fabulous lines, complementary colors, and the punctuation of the lamp with the bikes.

Wow, that is perfect. The colors, the snow, the bikes. Nice!

Another winter scene that is well processed and postcard perfect. To a dweller from the Southern Hemisphere this is as I would expect to see it in winter.
