My next upload is from Denmark again, from the city of Holbæk to be precise. It was taken when we were waiting for the ferry to the island of Orø and shows you the harbour of Holbæk.
Holbæk is located in Region Sjælland (Region Zealand) and in the former Amt (province) Vestsjælland, about 60km west of Copenhagen.
The city has about 25.000 inhabitants (but the municipality about 68.000). Holbæk was mentioned for the first time in a letter from Bishop Absalon, the founder of Copenhagen in 1199 as the large farm Holbækgaard. Later on the city developed around Holbæk Slot (Holbæk Castle), that was built in 1236 by King Valdemar Sejr (Valdemar II the Victorious).
The light here was rather difficult to handle. The photo is a stitch of three pictures.
Hope you like it. :-)

Nice composition here showing us the boats moored at the wharf with the town in the background. The lighting and colors are fine with nice sharpness and DOF. The great sky adds a nice touch to the shot.

Nice shot with soft, natural colors. Great stitch.

Weer eentje met het betere plak en knip werk. Deze is weer prachtig met alle goede ingredienten: mooie wolkjes in de lucht, glinsterend water, heerlijk zonnetje en mooie boten en huizen.

Een perfecte samenstelling uit drie foto's, zonder dat er maar iets van te merken valt.
Alles blijkt zeer ristig te zijn in de haven, geen verkeer noch andere aktiviteiten.
U ziet Lars dat wachten soms ook zijn nut kan opleveren bij deze een goede foto zowel van kleur als van kwaliteit.

Nice view of the city from the ferryboat. I like a boats alongside a dock. Very good well contrasted colors, excellent sharpness.

A well chosen panoramic format with a three layers compo (water, houses, sky) Light and colors are fine and there is good detail sharpness.

this colourful harbour view is nice and calm. Wonderful contrasts and well done in the panorama format, why not a large version?
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Lars, c'est un beau travail que tu as fait là avec trois photos. Le résultat est superbe avec un bel équilibre et de belles couleurs.
xavshot (69835) 2007-09-08 9:58
un bon choix du format panoramique pour nous présenter cette vue. Le tout est bien équilibré et les couleurs ressortent bien. beau travail
edal (6804) 2007-09-08 10:16
It's a beautiful panorama with all these romantic boats included. Low light brings out many structural details.
ahaberal (6469) 2007-09-08 10:17
Nice contrast and color.Thanks for sharing.
feather (51130) 2007-09-08 13:05
Stiching 3 images has allowed you to show lots of wondefful detail. It is not too small to see either which often happens with panos. The shutter speed tells us how bright it was making exposure difficult. I think you did a goodg job. Well done
emjleclercq (15780) 2007-09-08 13:18
Light perhaps a bit low, but you have the red roofs and a light blue sky to lighten the picture. The wooden boat on the right is interesting, obviously an old traditonal ship. I wonder what she will look like after repairing.
All the best,

well composed photo here. This is really a very beautiful landscape. The architecture details in the house in the background are very interesting.

Bonjour, mon ami Lars,
Trois photos pour réaliser ce panoramique parfaitement ajusté. Les couleurs sont très bien rendues. Bravo pour avoir su gérer la lumière avec talent.
Merci, Lars, pour la note très intéressante.
Stepan (27210) 2007-09-09 1:50
Typical as I imagine Denmark.
I don't know why I find the compo well fitting with a sunday mood. Maybe because I would like the walk there...
abulafia (4900) 2007-09-09 3:00
Really not much to say about this one!
Technically very good and the subject is really nice as well.
The stitching is spot on.
riclopes (35577) 2007-09-09 4:27
Olá Lars, lovely panoramic composition. I wonder if you reached the limit of your Large Versions, because this would give a good one. Yes, I can see the harsh light from the right, but the result is excellent and I wouldn't even think of the light if you hadn't mentioned it. The reading of the image is nice, jumping from boat to boat and then from building to building.
Have a nice sunday,

Hi , Lars .
Another fine photo from a nice town in Denmark .
The lighting is perfect , as is the balance between the water , the town and the blue sky !
You always write such interesting notes , and this one is no exception !
john_c (24662) 2007-09-09 8:17
A fine panorama of this harbour area, with the orange roofs and facades contrasting well with the blue of sky and water. I like your three part division - the rule of thirds - here, which is right on the money. The rippled water on the right enhances. Well captured.
Mikos (4326) 2007-09-09 8:19
Glad to be here again!
I love the angle you have chosen to face this image, with excellent pov light and the colours that the elements within the image give to your vivid picture!
Thank you so much for your kind words about my Prague picture, ;-)
syd1946 (18663) 2007-09-09 10:05
Excellent work with the three photos in one.The view is fine...
In my opinion you handle very well the light and this helps to enjoy the atmosphere.
Nice and peaceful...
Budapestman (82620) 2007-09-10 4:12

well captured and perfectly composed shot with the stitch. Although the difficult light conditions, you managed it very well and the sharpness is also very good. Very good work!
Tfs and best wishes.

Hej Lars, een mooi havengezicht dit! Mooi licht, een aansprekend panoformaat, een pakkende grafische interactie van de masten en de daken, lichte beweging in het water. Een foto om bij weg te dromen.

danos (83053) 2007-09-11 3:08
the Holbæk Harbour looks like a calmly place with all these sailing boats and the houses of the natives to decorate the frame.I think that the light is well handle from you as the pale colours too.This panoramic view is great for the sharpness and the clarity.Well done Lars.

A fine image from this attractive maritime environment!
Good light and sharp fine details, I notice the boats are all classics with a few year on their back, good...
Pleasant composition, fine colours and accurate PP work has been done!
