This is the entrance to Brønshøj Kirke (Broenshoej Church in english). I visit Brønshøj Kirke and its cemetery a lot. Its very peaceful, just to sit on a bench at relax in the sun. This day, at Brønshøj Kirke, it was snowing. I was hoping to capture the small snowflakes and then give them a bit of motion blur, but the snow flakes never showed up on the images.

My son took his first ride on a bike on the small paths along Brønshøj Kirke. Sometimes when its completely dark and only the moon is up, my son and i take a walk from Brønshøj Kirke, to the other end of the cemetery. He is no longer scared of the dark.

This has a wonderful frosty feeling to it and all of the colors feel very silver(if it is HDR, I am glad you have only used it a subtle way). Well done.

Beautiful structure and grounds. Nicely captured and processed.

Thanks I think that people tend to overdue the tone mapping when they first start to fool around with HDR and tone mapping. I normally try to do it in a more “natural” way, but we all have our own personal style. Each photo is different and sometimes the colorful “paint” style looks great and it seems to get peoples attention.

I agree with the “frosty feeling”, I also like the “sharp/crisp” look of the photo. The whole photo has a “graphic” touch to it. Nice.

I also have to agreee with the “frosty feeling”. Once again the composition is very good with how the roofs goes in well balanced steps and with the path leeding the eye further into the picture.

Very nice. The door stands out very well…a good anchor.

Amy on April 1, 2008 14:23

I love the silver tone you have here, makes have a cold feel to it. Nice job.

Bo on April 1, 2008 14:42

Thanks all. I really appreciate all your comments.

Im still gonna try to capture some movement in a HDR, mainly because motion blur works really well in 32bit mode in Photoshop.

The dusting of snow makes this venerable place even more attractive. I really like the composition and the way the light falls on the building. Very nice post!

Beautiful frosty scene…Is it still that cold there or is that older?

Andriy on April 1, 2008 17:28

Shame there is no clouds in the sky, otherwise cool photo.

Bo on April 1, 2008 17:53

@Beeps and Chirps: It was shot Sunday the 24th February 2008, but it only snowed for a couple of hours and then it went away again.

c’est vraiment très beau, le traitement est magnifique.

The angle is great, it adds depth to the image, but somehow the muted colours makes it a bit tame.

standley on April 1, 2008 22:58

Superb structure. I like the subtle lighting!

Nice HDR, I feel captured peaceful atmosphere. Lite color reduction helped a lot

Sean on April 2, 2008 05:02

A well composed shot. I especially like the cool, silvery tones and the sharp detail.

Michael Skorulski on April 2, 2008 10:32

An excellent image with a wonderful frosty mood. I like the selective coloring and it has an HDR look which I like very much.

m a r t a on April 2, 2008 11:02

I love the tones and frosty look on that one. Well done!

gentse koppen on April 2, 2008 11:03

somehow i thought this was a hdr. But it is just the snow that makes this image look so bright, i guess nice ne

chris chisu on April 2, 2008 13:03

Beautiful HDR. Looks like haunted….beautiful.

Nice! I like those cold looking HDR pics

Katarzyna on April 17, 2008 15:06

It is so charming. This picture reminds me of the Andersen’s stories wchich were my favourite when I was a little girl. The atmosphere is frosty but on the other hand there is something warm in this photo :)

bluechameleon on June 29, 2008 17:26

so pretty. My step daughter and soninlaw live in that area. I am from the U.S. and hope to visit one day. I love the picture. I also love cold weather and snow. The church is gorgeous.
