Yes, it's a special place. I know I have given a critique to another shot in your gallery from the same place, and I still like the place! The houses have splendid colours and fits good to the rocks and the snow. TFS.
Regards from Bergen.

Sujet charmant et composition réussie. Mais la photo est passablement floue, ce qui se voit surtout quand on essaie de concentrer l'observation sur les détails architecturaux des maisons. J'imagine que tu étais dans une embarcation: 1/160sec était visiblement insuffisant. Et comme l'ouverture était f/9.0, tu aurais pu ouvrir facilement 2 crans sans nuire à la profondeur de champ et avoir une vitesse de l'ordre du 1/600sec. (Ou encore monter le ISO à 400...)
Subject charming and successful composition. But the picture is somewhat blurred, which is seen especially when trying to concentrate on observing the architectural details of homes. I guess you were in a boat: 1/160sec was obviously insufficient. And as the aperture was f/9.0, you could easily open 2 notches without sacrificing depth of field and having a speed of the order of 1/600sec. (Or mount the ISO to 400 ...)

What a picturesque place! Photographing it with a dusting of snow certainly makes the colourful houses and the texture of the rock stand out! Excellent composition, good light management and very nice colours.
