Photo Processing Challenge389OK, folks, it's been quiet too long time and now we're back! This time the challenge comes from Porvoo, Finland. I was on a photowalk with some of my colleagues a few years ago and since Porvoo is one of the most beautiful cities in Finland I wanted you to process this shot. It was dark and wet night and I had my old "warhorse" Nikon D50 those days. That's why the quality of this photo is not too high but I believe you still can do miracles with it. As usual, you have two versions to process, JPG and DNG. Download whichever you prefer. You have one week starting tonight! Have fun! Please feel free to invite your friends too! Download JPG version here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8dHcC1IPKkwZ3FqdG9BZUltemM/edit Download DNG version here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8dHcC1IPKkwcWlhS1hjNDIwMnM/edit *Select File --> Download, do not edit the originals.* Mika (& Janne)Photo Processing Challenge 6/20122012-11-08 18:00:0074

Photo Processing Challenge389Hello folks! Some of you have already asked about the next challenge and here it is! The latest challenge received a lot of participants and hopefully you like this photo (at least) as much! This time our photo is of a beautiful house and it's shot by Janne. I bet your version will be much more rich in colors, much more interesting and will include much more interesting details. The mansion itself is Villa Petrell in Luvia, Finland. Perhaps there is something more information in the net for those who are intrested. As usual, you have one week to post your version. You also have two options to process, JPG and DNG versions. Let it roll! Download the JPG version here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B682ifb8y2ypY0N1cE1FWlVCUlU Download the DNG version here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B682ifb8y2ypcEY0OTlkVFZYQ00 Your curators: @104432369852747328665  @102757736811607251981 Photo Processing Challenge 5/20122012-10-20 18:00:0051  
Photo Processing Challenge389*Photo Processing Challenge 4/2012 is starting now* Some people have already asked about the next challenge and here we go! Previous photo was a little bit "full of nothing", but this time you really need to use your skills to make this look great! This is a photo of a museum steam engine shot during our National Railways museum train day 2012. The train is so beautiful but the landscape not so you have a possibility to make it look totally different if you feel so - or leave it as is and just process the whole photo look more natural. It's all up to you to decide! We've had some feedback and people were hoping to be able to download the JPG version of the photo. This time it's possible so check carefully whether you want to download the DNG version or the JPG version. As always, we're hoping that you also take some time to comment and "plus" other's photos - and *_do not forget to explain how you built your version of the photo!_* Have fun!

Mika Latvala14,940*Mika's photo processing challenge* is back! This time it's no longer morning but the main element changes to water. This is one of my shots from Ruukinkoski, Vantaa, Finland. However, I'm not satisfied with the results and *you should now process this photo* better than I've done. This time I tried creating an event about this so everyone can add their photos directly to the album of the event. If you don't know how to do it, just ask by commenting. This event is public so everyone can participate - feel free to share the post. Also check the original challenge here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/102757736811607251981/posts/PRM1p3SQ4Hc The results of the challenge: https://plus.google.com/u/0/102757736811607251981/posts/J3neaojEPJ7 The photo in this message is just a sample, do not download that photo. Download the original NEF file instead. NEF is a Nikon RAW image file and the most common photo processing applications do recognize these files.

Far north and back - a tale of a group of photographers

The first part of story here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MikaLatvala/posts/JUvc3ciypHL

Tuesday: We woke to a new day from a location close to the river, just a small step north from Vardø. The weather was nice, sun was shining and we decided to head back to Vardø to do some shopping and refuelling. Since we had already pretty much seen the city we once again drove through the tunnel and headed to west along road E75. The target was a small village, Vestre Jakobselv, where we have a friend living in. However, during the drive we realized that the rocks along the road were crowded with White-tailed Eagles so we decided to take a break and snap some photos. It required some patience to get some decent shots of the eagle but we realized that in less than 2 hours we had several opportunities to shoot the eagle.The... more »

Far north and back - a tale of a group of photographers

Story continues from Thursday morning:
We drove back from the mountains and had so great time we didn't even realize it was very late. Well, also the sun being up all the time didn't help us too much... We drove to the Lebesby coast where we stopped to take some photos. We walked on the beach for a while until one of us stopped to see the time. It was 4 in the morning!

We drove to the Lebesby coast where we stopped to take some photos. We walked on the beach for a while until one of us stopped to see the time. It was 4 in the morning! We had to get to bed for a while and when we woke up we continued our trip towards the west and Lakselv city. We actually had no further plans so we decided to stop whenever we would find anything to shoot. The only place along the road was a waterfall but since it was snowing and raining we didn't get too nice photos. Soon we arrived to Lakselv city. Car needed refuelling and we decided to get beers (the first ones during the whole trip). We were in a restaurant asking the bartender for some ideas what to shoot but he didn't have a clue. Suddenly a finnish guy came from the kitchen and he also started chatting with us. Still, no ideas what to do next. While drinking our beers we met yet more Finns there and they gave us some ideas. After thanking these lovely people we headed north towards Stabburnes recreational area. However, we had spent the whole day on the road so we had to get some sleep. There was an empty Stabbursdalen resort just next to the nature park. We found the owner's phone number from the reception door and called... and got a cabin for one night. We also had a shower and a wireless internet connection so it really felt luxurious after all the living in a car.

Friday: We spent in practice the whole day at the nature park spotting White-tailed Eagles and other birds. We expected to see sinirinta (Luscinia svecica) but the Norwegian bird professionals we met at the area told us that it has not arrived yet. We also found a dead reindeer from the river so there was no need to drink the water. After the dinner we decided to drive back to Finland and we headed to Karigasniemi on Finland border. We did some shopping and decided to get nice steaks as it was our last evening together. We stopped once again along the road since one of us spotted an owl. He got some photos, nobody else did. We headed to some parking spot and started the fire in the grill. We did the steaks, had some grill salad and I can assure those were the best steaks I've ever had. We headed to get some sleep and while waiting for the sandman to come we talked about the trip - and agreed that it had been an excellent decision to come here.

Saturday: We woke up early, took the fliers to the airport and headed to return the motor home. After that we still had around 1200 kilometres to drive home. We arrived at home after 2 in the morning, unloaded all the stuff and went to bed. The trip was over.___

Far north and back - a tale of a group of photographers

The first part of story here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MikaLatvala/posts/JUvc3ciypHL

Tuesday: We woke to a new day from a location close to the river, just a small step north from Vardø. The weather was nice, sun was shining and we decided to head back to Vardø to do some shopping and refuelling. Since we had already pretty much seen the city we once again drove through the tunnel and headed to west along road E75. The target was a small village, Vestre Jakobselv, where we have a friend living in. However, during the drive we realized that the rocks along the road were crowded with White-tailed Eagles so we decided to take a break and snap some photos.

However, during the drive we realized that the rocks along the road were crowded with White-tailed Eagles so we decided to take a break and snap some photos. It required some patience to get some decent shots of the eagle but we realized that in less than 2 hours we had several opportunities to shoot the eagle. The place was tagged in the GPS so we can go back later also. We cooked some dinner and headed to the village. There lives a Finnish guy called Heikki. He helped us to get to the camping area for a Sauna (we really needed it in that phase) and we also had a possibility to wash clothes. It was a refreshing night and it was crowned by Heikki who gave us a box of King Crab to enjoy next day. We also had some tips where to go next. Heikki warned us that the roads would be in bad condition and that we would need to cross over the mountains to get there - and that the roads are in terrible condition. Later we realized that he had not warned about this several times just for fun...

Wednesday: We slept quite late and the sun was already high (we had "tourist-lights", which is not preferable for photography). After a quick breakfast we headed west back to Varagnebotn and as far as Tana Bru to get cross the Teno river. We had a quick coffee break there, bought some more water and headed north towards the Slettnes lighthouse - which is the northest point of Europe continent. The roads end there so in practice that was the most far place for a man to go by a car. This was the most exciting part of the trip; as Heikki told us the roads were in terrrible condition and even if the speed limit was 50 km/h we felt that 20 was better speed. However it seemed that the locals didn't too much care about the bumps and they passed us with high speed. The views in this road were amazing! There are plenty of fjords that you can see from the high mountains. You can see how the vegetation changes the higher you get and finally you can see only snow everywhere. Then you start climbing back down and finally get to the end of the Europe continent. The lighthouse was kind of disappointment, there was a huge wind and really not that much to see. We didn't even bother taking too many photos there and soon we headed back to the mountains. The night at the mountains was quite exciting since we ran into a small group of Finnish bird enthusiasts and they told us there were several tunturipöllös (Nyctea scandiaca) spotted in the area. We stayed there for several hours but no matter how much we tried we didn't see this beautiful owl. We decided to go back to the south instead.

Far north and back - a tale of a group of photographers

Finally we're back home. Mobile phones didn't work too much during the last days of the trip so here's a summary of the whole trip in a few posts.

Friday: We started driving, around 1200 kilometres to Inari where we rented the motor home. 2 guys of 5 flew to Ivalo where we picked them up and started the actual trip to Norway. We crossed the border at Utsjoki without any border control. We crossed Tenojoki (Teno river) and headed east to Tana Bru. Once again cross the river and we headed for Ekkerøy where we stayed the first night. There was a colony of "Pikkukajava" (Rissa tridactyla) and we shot several photos there. We also shot many landscape photos since the sunset was amazing.

We also shot many landscape photos since the sunset was amazing.

Saturday: We arrived in Inari early in the morning so we had plenty of time to do the shopping and get all the stuff to the motor home. One of us drove back to the airport to pick up 2 guys who wanted to fly there and meanwhile we packed the car and had some time to rest. When the "colleagues" arrived, we started the trip towards Norway. The first stop was Ekkerøy where we spent the first night. However, before going to sleep we spotted a bunch of birds and found a community of birds - and of course we took some photos.

Sunday: We woke up early, made some breakfast and started the car towards the east. The next stop was Vuoreija (Vardø) where we took a boat to the actual target, Hornøya bird island. We had booked a room in the lighthouse and spent a whole day shooting birds.

Monday: Woke up late and realized that the sun was too high. More bird shooting (puffins) and we also had some great chatting with the research workers in the area. There was also a couple of guys from Norwegian television; they were making a document about the island and they also took photos of us. Let's see if any of those goes to television later. (please let me know if you spot this TV program some day). We took the last boat to the mainland, cooked some food and headed to the north. The target this time was Hamningberg where the road ends. We were sitting in a car eating something when one of the crew saw something in the water. He was asking us if we saw anything but nobody else did. We went outside and we realized that it was a whale! I have never seen 5 guys taking their equipment so quickly and trying to get a photo of the whale! The results were not so good but you could feel the excitement! The sun started to go down so we wanted to see that also and headed to another shore in the area. We shot some landscape photos, I wet my shoes (fell into the ea) and decided to head back to south.

It was already Tuesday when we found a place where to park the car and get some sleep.

Going even more far north

Hornoya was an amazing paradise for bird enthusiasts and also from photography point of view. You can shoot tens of bird species and for once 70-200 is enough! Of course the Puffins were the most interesting species there but we also saw White-Tailed Eagle and many other interesting species.

Staying a night at the lighthouse was much more comfortable than we expected. Even if there was no chance to take a shower, we had comfortable beds and a kichen where to cook. That was kind of luxury during a trip like this when you just live in a car for more than a week.

Now we're heading more north, to a place called Hamningberg. They say it's place where the world seems to end and I also heard some of the James Bond -movies was shot there because of the barren landscapes.

Bird island Hornoya

Finally here! After driving more than 1500 kilometres (more than 930 miles) we finally arrived to Vardö island using a tunnel. We spent last night in absolutely stunning place, watched the sun go down and rise just a moment later.

The final step was to buy a boat tickets to the island and on the island the first step was to we just came back to the lighthouse where we'll spend the night. The main activity was to snap photos of various birds and when we first time climbed up the hill we saw even a few white-tailed eagles. Anyway, the puffins were so funny and they even seemed to like being shot.

Snow and reindeers. This must be Lapland

We drove all night. From a beautiful sunshine we came to rainy Rovaniemi and yet more far north. Luckily there were 3 drivers so one was able to get some sleep. Only 100 km left to Ivalo.

Trip is about to begin!

In a couple of hours we will start the trip. We're driving to #Ivalo  airport and pick 2 more photographers - then we'll continue to north.

On Sunday or Monday - depending on schedules (we actually don't too much have any schedules) we will wave you in this webcam so stay tuned!

Ths sun doesn't go down too much at all that high so there is no need for flashlights. I'll post some more information during the trip if we just get the internet connection working there. Wish me luck!

Heading for Norway

At the end of last year me and a few friends started to plan a trip to Norway. We all love Finnish Lapland and this time we wanted to go way further north. It should be a good time to see birds moving back to the big bird islands and there should also be a good chances to spot for example White-tailed Eagle - and even whales.

The main target of the trip is the Hornøya bird island (next to Vardo in the picture).

We will be leaving in less than 2 weeks from now so if you wish to follow our trip, please stay tuned!

Memories from last winter

Some of you may already know that the winter in northern Finland is dark. And I mean it's really dark. On the northern side of the Arctic Circle the sun will not rise at all for a couple of months and a light glow is basically all you can see of the sun. Still it makes the landscape mystical and beautiful in so many ways that you just cannot imagine that if you haven't seen it yourself. In Finland we call this time a year as "kaamos".

A man and his car. Only a car enthusiast (or someone married with one) can know how important can a car be to a man. How pride he feels, how his heart beats when he drives it and How he always looks after when he parks his car. And when after a long repair session his car works again, you just cannot wipe the smile out of his face...

Mies ja auto. Vain autoharrastaja (tai sellaisen puoliso) voi tietää, miten tärkeä auto voi olla miehelle. Millaista ylpeyttä siitä tunnetaan, miten ajaessa voi sydän sykkiä ja kuinka sen perään pitää aina vilkaista pysäköinnin jälkeen. Ja kun se pitkän korjauksen jälkeen taas toimii, sitä hymyä on vaikea pyyhkiä kasvoiltaan...___A man and his car.

Cows in Czech look also like cows... :-D

This photo is related to my previous post. I was trying to shoot the sunset in Hlinsko, Czech Republic. However, a herd of cows wanted to see what I'm doing and I just couldn't resist taking a few photos of those nice animals.
