This cluster of houses immediately caught my attention. The facades lit by the low sun and the reflections in the in the calm water made a great scene, and I just had to make a stop and place my tripod as close to the water as I could get.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for watching.

Hello Erling ,
how to resist to this fantastic light and perfect reflections . It coul have been excellent without the car on the right , but with it , it is more original .

A picture that you can turn upside down.
Perfect clear and very colourful reflections.
Since Fedje is an island in western Norway, I guess this water is an inlet of the sea. Unbelievable calm water! Even the electric power cables are reflected clearly.
Best regards, Paul

You've given us two photos for the price of one. The particular reds once sees in Norway had suggested in the thumbnail version that this indeed was a scene in that very beautiful northern country.

tutto contribuisce al magnifico scatto, anche l'auto, di solito danno fastidio, in questo caso rientra splendidamente nella composizione, grazie alla sua posizione e al suo riflesso.
Splendida luce, ben gestita.

these small group of houses have been very nicely presented in your picture. I like the afternoon light which added nice and attractive warm tones to all the elements of the image. The composition has been well planned and it gains a lot form perfect reflection on the water which doubles the impression. Good use of the panorama format.
Thanks for sharing

En fantastisk symmetri med byggnaderna perfekt speglade i det stilla vattnet. Det varma solnedgångsljuset är mycket vackert och de röda husen skapar en fin effekt.

this truly beautiful place and your composition and treament capture and display perfectly uniqueness of it and its tranquil atmosphere.
I know I won´t be original,but I really enjoy here the combination of so captivating,warm light and these smooth reflections(btw.it gives us the feeling like the scene would be divided in two the same halves)
Wish You all the best

Nice mirror picture, with this 50/50 picture
Sharpness and clarity make these picture very well, also nice architecture picture.
Your panorama picture is nice and very attractive.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

its great that you decided to add in the truck on the far right. How awesome is that.
And you managed the harsh lighting quite well too.
for some reason i think there are hundreds of photo opps like this in norway and denmark. Just another reason to go back! Fine photo, nice to hear from you again.

Beautiful end of day golden light and very nice reflections. Not a fan of including the car in the composition, I think you should crop a little your picture to remove it.

I have just seen Fredrik's photos of this place and clicked on Fedje to see more.
This is an amazing image full of warm vibrant colours enhanced by the beautiful light and with a perfect reflection on top of everything else. Great exposure balance between the "real" and the reflected world.
