Ever since I posted the picture Fedje - the village by the sea ,I wondered how this view would look like in the blue hour. Now I finally got the chance to capture this moment. An evening with nearly calm weather, I got some magic minutes to enjoy the peace and this splendid view. Hope you can enjoy the view as much as I did.
Thanks for viewing.

Superbe image à l'heure bleue. J'aime beaucoup l'impression de calme qui se dégage de cette image. Les reflets sont superbes et j'aime bien l'église illuminée .

Hi Erling. Enchanting time of day with an almost haunting stillness and light. The reflections are lovely and the glowing light from windows, along the street and over the church add magic to the otherwise blue world. Regards. Klaudio.

photo magnifique pour ses lumières et le calme de la scène.
Des reflets parfaits, très miroirs et le regard indéniablement attiré par cette église de lumières bien placée sur la photo.

very nice composition night, a beautiful clarity and superb contrast.
This church lit, or its reflection, consistently attracts the eye.
Very good work

Wow! this is an amazing shot! Such perfect light management and stunning clarity. A mirror like reflection and so accomplished considering an 8 sec exposure. Impressive and quite captivating!

Cette composition de couleurs très froides, ponctuées d'un grand éclat de chaleur ainsi que de petites touches de lumières, est absolument superbe.
Les reflets sont magnifiques dans cette eau très sereine. J'adore l'effet de reflet de l'église illuminée.
Un grand bravo, et excellente journée.
macjake (57848) 2011-04-22 20:40
looking back at the daylight photo, i'm surprised i missed it! that one is equally beautiful...not sure which one i like most.
simple construction design, love the white everywhere, mixed with all that blue.
lovely reflections are obvious. nice addition of the spotlighted church...lots to admire with this one
keep them coming
jhm (141273) 2011-04-23 0:35
What a perfect image, I like the enlightenment of the church together the reflections in water.
You play wonderful with light and shadows, sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Nice composition, excellent presentation with pleasant colors and light.
Very well done, TFS.

Great tone of colors and amazing mirror reflection on water,
I like the church and all the architecture of the houses,
Have a happy Easter weekend to you and family.
all my compliments.
pablominto (53744) 2011-04-23 22:53
Skillful light treatment, resulting in this fine balance between the church and the surroundings!
Good details even in the ordinary houses in the village, and the evening atmosphere is well conveyed...
A balanced composition, where you make well use of the calm water as mirror!

Erling, what a wonderful shot! It is a gift! What can I say? IMPRESSIVE!
PaulVDV (23037) 2011-04-26 13:37
Wow, what a beautiful clear and sharp night shot! The colour of the water and the sky is exactly the same. The reflections of the houses on the FG are perfect and the one of the church add nice warm tones to the picture.
Best regards, Paul

des reflets qui font rever....
encore un pays que j'aimerai visiter...
une photo tres bien realisée
worldcitizen (7207) 2011-05-07 17:53
This is a great blue hour shot. There is such a sense of calm, and all of the white houses stand out beautifully against the darkening sky. You also captured a perfect reflection. I really like the illuminated church, that looks even more wonderful in the water.
delpeoples (53659) 2011-05-09 3:32
This is a wonderful little town, I can only imagine how good it looks during the day. But you have captured a very special moment in the Blue Hour. The reflections are magical and I like how the church on the left and the house on the right balance the image perfectly.
Thanks for sharing and I wish you a happy day
scroller (3407) 2011-05-19 2:52
Lit sent men gratulerer till dagen. Hoper dere hade en greit 17 mai!

Fantastic POV and composition.
Reflection add savor of photo.
Didi (57724) 2011-06-04 3:23
Interesting toiuch of lights in the blue hour.
No disturbing lights in your composition.
mkamionka (31265) 2011-06-28 3:00
wow, this is a spectacular view here. I like very much the blue hour light which is doubled by the 100% reflection. You have captured an amazing atmosphere here. The composition is fantastic as well with the tiny church illuminated with warm colors. You did a fantastic job with the exposition I see the church is perfectly exposed in spite of being much more brighter then the rest of the scene. I like also the tiny islet in the middle of the water -it cuts nicely through the reflection adding a realistic point of reference. You were in a perfect moment at the great time and you have well used the opportunity. Again.
Longroute (19396) 2011-07-17 0:23
Yes, you got the right moment and also the right POV. The colour tonalities are absolutely wonderful! This lovely town seems under a spell, one can almost feel the silence and quietness in the air... The contrast the church does with its bright colour has a mesmerizing effect and the reflections in the calm waters are dreamlike.
A great capture and a masterful composition.
ecmel (1227) 2011-08-12 4:32
This perfectly composed and masterfully captured scene shows how beautiful the town of Fedje is. Excellent photographic quality of the capture allows viewing many nice details.
Warm regards from Izmir,
sacimar (26025) 2011-08-22 4:23
this is a beautiful image, good light management, the reflection and the church light are eye-catching, it's an excellent composition,
Ricx (13495) 2012-01-09 23:02
Hi Erling, I have decided to comment on both as I believe both deserve a mention. In a gallery both could be hung side by side and would create a lot of discussion and mentions.. Obviously the light on the church moves the focal point of the image to the BG, with the bouys and the little island playing less of a role.. still both sharp and good detail. TFS both of them Rich
tkfun45 (113) 2012-02-06 19:25
A very amazing pair of shots. Nice idea to retrace your steps to find the blue hour shot. Most intriguing is the area of non-reflective water near the far shore, which "eliminates" the foreground reflections and serves to emphasize the church reflection. Superbly shot. I am adding the pair to my favorites.
SnapRJW (31617) 2013-08-08 6:15
Hello Erling - I have been enjoying a look through your Norway gallery and I am really impressed by some of your shots. I think the combination of water and light is so special that i would love to travel there someday. This shot is exceptionally lovely; the stillness of the night is very beautiful, just a few points of warm light amidst the softest blues and greys and crystal clear reflections. A superb shot in every way. Warm regards Rosemary
