It was snowing and I caught Olof standing in the doorway of an old timber framed house
But I think I'd like to see more snow.
Very nice. Have you considered a more traditional portrait (vertical) crop? Perhaps with the subject looking into the asymmetric darkness on the right side of the picture?
Can you give us the tech details on this: camera, lens, setting, use of flash, etc?
Thanks for sharing this pic with us.
Thanks, I did consider it but I felt that it lacked something.
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikkor 18-200mm 3,5-5,6
Shutter speed: 1/200
Focal length: 200
Must be tired. I knew there was something that bothered me but I couldn't figure it out.
Olof is looking in the wrong direction. Either that or the negative space should be on the other side.
I hope you don't mind this cropping attempt (at 5x4 ratio):
I kinda like it better this way..
And I am new, so forgive me for asking. What or who is a Olof?
I believe it is simply this Swedish man's name.
The photo makes me think it is a reference to Olof Skötkonung, son of Eric the Victorious and Sigrid the Haughty. Viking times.
