Foreigners visiting Denmark today was very much alone on the streets this morning – Reason: The Olympic final in woman Handball with Denmark vs. Korea – I thriller that never will be forgotten around here.
After the ordinary 2x30 min was the score 25-25, after the first 2x5 min was the score 29-29 and after the last 2x5 min ended, was the score 34-34.
Then came the penalty throw competition, which Denmark won – due to our goalkeeper and some good shots – but surely an very equal match, which Korea was very close to win as well.
I tried a workshop on this one but Im not very pleased with the silver.
This photo only resized - its taken close to sunset and the low sun gave this golden touch - I posted this photo taken in the same serie.

Always a good subject... Excellent use of the golden light in this one, very nicely composed, beautiful colors. For some reason the sky is a bit too noisy.
tworivers (573) 2004-08-29 13:01
love the light in this image. wish maybe there was less sky and the bale on the extreme right horizon was cropped out as it draws a lot of attention with its position in the image. the lines in the field add a lot of interest to the image. very nice shot.
Hanssie (10465) 2004-08-29 13:08
And your title is exactly the right one !
What a beauty, what a light, Jeppe ! Wonderful !
(Let's see, how many points this one's gathering..)
Kenny10pin (19301) 2004-08-29 13:09
great work Jeppe, well seen and taken, very nice colours of hay, good composition too,
DonQ (2625) 2004-08-29 13:12
You have done a realy stuning here with a colours Jeppe. Very funy note too! :-)) Composition is a realy colourful and just great in a golden sunset colour. Also another photo is very nice and it is maybe bad thing that could not be rated (as a WS). Another one have, for my opinion, lower rank. You said also; the silver one truely disturb competition. ;-)
Well done again. Thanks for sharing of this golden tie heat.
kikvel (4784) 2004-08-29 13:15
Very nice golden lines.
The light is great here.
The colors are fantastic.
Burnham (2428) 2004-08-29 13:26
Ohhh, we won! Not that I`m too big a fan of handball it`s just nice to know what`s happening in Denmark - Ecuadors only chance of wining anything in the Olympics was speedwalking, a guy named Jefferson who won Ecuadors first ever gold medal in ANYTHING a few years ago - speedwalking, I got borred quite fast and anyway he didn`t win..
Cool shot Jeppe, the gold is very well rendered and I miss Denmark now ;oD
RegisMinot (1543) 2004-08-29 13:26
These stroke rolls are nicely distributed over the field, occupying the space at various distances, therefore creating a nice perspective effect. Of course, the most appealing aspect of the photo is the golden colour which illustrates the purpose of your note. Very good composition !
maphoto (8082) 2004-08-29 13:37
Beautiful field Jeppe, grear colors and lines, this works better than a flat field, very well seen and perfectly composed.
smael (2878) 2004-08-29 13:49
A very nice shot, and I guess that denamrk sails up as the second to Burma as the "golden land" ;)
Personally I would go for fewer hayballs in the composition...
I marked your note as usefull, but I couldn't immediately figure out the connection ;)
Still I understand the need to celebrate. Congrats on the gold!!!
avigur_11 (22087) 2004-08-29 13:49
Yes, a golden shot it is, Jeppe, I think that you made it again..
What a wonderful composition of light, color and texture, shapes, and GOLD. Great shot.
Zanni (6108) 2004-08-29 13:50
Please Jeppe, have you in your hard disk any pictures with silver hay rolls? Only second place for Italian volleyball and basketball teams. Thank's
elroyie (2750) 2004-08-29 14:26
Excellent picture with great colours and very good composition, it looks like gold with the light of the sun on them.
You have a great sense of humor :-)

Comme à chaque fois, je suis émerveillé par vos photos; non seulement, vous avez la chance de pouvoir fixer de jolies choses, mais vous le faites avec brio.

Vagabond (5848) 2004-08-29 14:57
Fantastic composition. A 5-points Smiley ... if possible. A wonder ...
cmartos (242) 2004-08-29 15:12
Superb Jeppe, the gold one was the right choice ;-). Very clever POV, wonderful saturated colours and perfect composition. I like it very much. It was suerly a superb final, very interesting symbolic presentation. Thanks for sharing!
nwoehnl (122) 2004-08-29 15:19
Great creative shot to celebrate the occasion, Jeppe - congratulations to the Danish women's handball team, I saw the final part of the thriller this morning. Great graphical impact from the hayrolls and the lines on the field, and I love how they really glow golden in the sun. Excellent!
Rockyboy (20598) 2004-08-29 17:24
Wow, looks like the colors are great those days in Dannemark... and congratulation for the gold medal in Handball... In Belgium, results of our athlets are not so nice... The only gold medal we have is in Tennis with Justine Henin-Hardenne and she is a professional... an olympic sport maybe but not so olympic than Handball where we don't have any team...
Anyway, great picture!
Lolydodia (580) 2004-08-29 19:08
This really reminds mee of swedish golden crones. Thaks for sharing!
pamastro (7290) 2004-08-30 0:10
Very nice landscape. The gold here is amazing. Very vibrant. It's a good match to the note. I also like how the golden reflection makes them look so artificial out there. Like some kind of strange technologies or some kind of conceptual artwork. The sky is a nice back for this, too. A nice thin strip but just enough to give a sense of endless horizons beyond. Nicely done.
ephemere33 (9743) 2004-08-30 3:36
super ces rondins couleur or, tres belle composition prise de cette façon Jeppe, très marrante la note qui l'accompange...félicitation ...en tous les cas un grand merci de nous faire partager cette rouleaux de foin en or ...car les miens sont verts...amicalement BI

hojper (2832) 2004-08-30 6:03
A great shot of eight gold medals. And they are all yours. I must admit that I didn't lnow we had won olympic gold - so thanks for telling me. I wonder which focal length you had the camera on?
alainh (35583) 2004-08-30 6:50
tout est dit. elle est vraiment tres belle.
pridel (233) 2004-08-30 7:53
it is a very beautiful photograph. the color of gold goes very well to Denmark (your note is funny) and these logs of straw are superb. the compo is well balanced, with these green trails.
jrj (34843) 2004-08-30 8:00
Great light, fine depth and perspective. Very well done Jeppe
TrippleDB (97) 2004-08-30 8:41
How did you just get this colour? It's amazing, and beautiful. :o) What a shot. Great one, Jeppe. :o)
Georges (11185) 2004-08-30 12:25
EXTRA les couleurs sont vraiment superbe et la composition parfaitement équilibrée.
Exellent travail Jeppe et surtout merci de nous faire partager de tels moments.
RGatward (20062) 2004-08-30 12:31
Amazing colours here Jeppe, and rightly applaued across the membership.
hdl (7035) 2004-08-30 15:30
This is very original. Your title says it all: gold it is! Good thing to wait till end of day so that the setting sun is still improving that "gold-effect". Thanks for showing.
Tim (469) 2004-08-30 16:11
This is outstanding in every sence of the word but the lighting is what really puts it over the top! Way to go Jep! God's best,
Endy (1025) 2004-08-30 21:08
Great composition Jeppe and a nice pattern! The circle of hay rolls attracts immediately the eyes. Excellent reflection of the sun light on the rolls.
orme (7215) 2004-08-31 1:21
A wonderfully golden shot, Jeppe, and a great way to celebrate Denmark's victory. I like the way you have framed it with the three hayrolls 'advancing' to wards you and the 'general' sitting high-up on the hill. Well done.

Great golden shot, great lines, now the farmer is busy to get this inside before the rain.

Spectacular Jeppe... sincerely.
The colorful one which you have caught in this image is almost unreal.
Excellent perspective and frame.
Opportune and amused note.
Thanks for sharing.
Spoony (3539) 2004-08-31 12:57

bibiweb (8) 2004-09-05 2:05
Beautiful colors and composition! I once saw a similar scene while driving along the countryside were I live... but I didn't have my camera at hand that day!
vbourrut (32478) 2004-09-05 13:45
For sure this perfect lighting makes the pict ! also a good and interesting composition, thanks for sharing it with us Jeppe !

What else should I say ?!! It´s just marvellous !!
loupiot (3909) 2004-09-11 9:13
Very nice golden countryside, Jeppe! Colors and composition are perfect. I like your funny note to. An esthetic shot, well done!
bazal (7900) 2004-09-15 3:41
Perfect color saturation and superb light conditions. The sun's reflection gives this famous golden touch that is the originality of your pict.
Congratulation for the medal (french handball players, both men and women, haven't been so lucky, or at least strong enough !).
Mrg (825) 2004-09-15 16:24
Very well seen, all this golden mood is fantastic. Great photo!
ChristianS (2997) 2004-09-18 16:22
The colours and light in this photo are splendid. Loolks like golden ballets to me :)
dsidwell (9783) 2004-09-20 21:36
I somehow missed this one! I can see how in the story, a person could turn straw into gold! The perspective, point of view and marvelous light are so nice here, Jeppe. Congratulations!
France (125) 2004-09-21 19:25
What an incredible color. It looks like copper. The composition and the light are perfect. I really love this shot.
Motrem (2392) 2004-09-29 8:53
Golden light, golden composition! It is very good shot!
Lumière d'or, composition en or! C'est très bien réussi!
marcb (589) 2005-01-27 14:47
