[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Finally a summer picture again. This particular image is from the Målselv River in Troms, Norway. In the last days of June, salmond is coming in from the atlantic ocean to swim up the river for their mating period. Of course this is a time where all fishing enthusiasts dig out their equipment to mark the start of the salmond fishing. The fishing season lasts all july as the salmond contiues up the river.

This picture is taken nearby the Målselv River falls, which is actually chosen as Norway`s National river fall. A couple of fishermen or women are out on the river fishing, while two rowing boats are lying ashore for the night. You can also see a lot of flotsam lying along the shoreline - washed in by the river current.

I hope this summerly picture may help after the not-so-popular winter storm shot.. hehe :)

Post processing: 1) Making three layers - sky, river and shore. 2)Adjusting levels of each layer. 3)Dodging and burning the piles of wood on shore. 4) Sharpening.

Hi Torbjorn,
You produced a very nice picture with a good atmosphere. Good controlled light situation. Personally I think this against-the-light- photographing is one of the most difficult things to handle.
Good work,
Regards, Ruud

Hi Tobjorn,
Great view, especially the lower part. The wood and two boats give this photo good depth. The sun is too bright and OE. Which causes it to claim too much attention. Maybe a grad ND filer would have helped to overcome this.
