Today I came back from Denmark. We spent one week in the area of Djursland, the peninsula on the east coast of Jylland (Jutland), or more specific the area of Mols, which is the south-eastern part of Djursland. My first photo is taken in Ebeltoft, a small town with a very picturesque centre.

Ebeltoft (formally Æbeltoft) is located on the south-eastern tip of Djursland in Region Midtjylland (Region Central Jutland) or in the former Århus Amt (before Jan.'07). It's part of Syddjurs Kommune (literally Municipality of Southern Djurs) and has about 5700 inhabitants. It is popular among tourist because of the small streets with half-timbered houses and attractions like Fregatten Jylland, Glasmuseet Ebeltoft and Det Gamle Rådhus.

Here the end of the street called Juulsbakke is seen on a sunny Monday afternoon. The house on the right hand side is a restaurant (called Mellem Jyder, Among Jutlanders) and the building with the little tower is Det Gamle Rådhus (The Old Town Hall). The town hall was built in 1789 and used as a town hall untill 1840. Now it is part of Ebeltoft Museum. I couldn't really take a photo of the facade of the town hall, because of the low and fierce backlight.

There were many people in the main street of the town, not only because of the fine weather, but also due to Æblefestivallen (The Apple Festival) during the Autumn Holidays.
Hope you like this view of Ebeltoft.

Hi Lars!

Excellent shot, very good contrast and colors, interesting houses - especially I very like this white checkered architecture. Very good framing and sharpness


Hej Lars,

Very good composition. I like this nice architecture of the town hall. Excellent colors and textures, great light. Good perspective.

Great street scene, showing not only the historic old buildings, but also some of the life and the people too. I like the contrast between the red roofs of the buildings and the blue sky. Well done!

Hi Lars,
A very pleasing shot of this cobblestone street scene with very interesting architecture. Looks like a great place to visit, dine, etc. Good clarity with intricate details in finely saturated colors. Excellent work and TFs. Gerald

Hej Lars,
strong colours, a great blue in the sky, wonderful contrast and an eyecatching perspective. The road is just the right thing to open view.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Hello Lars,
What a great autumn weather in Denmark!
A fine point of view gives good impression of this picturesque architecture, inclusion of the people roaming and enjoying the day adds life...
A pleasant composition with fine colours!

Hallo Lars,
Gelukkig dat er nog batterijen te koop waren in dit sappige appelstadje anders hadden dit fraaie, typische Larz-plaatje moeten missen.
Groet Rob

Hi Lars

Another great perspective shot with great lighting and nice rich colours. Nice work.

Hej Lars
i remember very well this beautiful street, with Alcea rosea along a part of the pavement,
good shot of that part of the street,
you had a very good light at this moment to get fine colours from that POV, nice framing,

Bonsoir Lars
j'aime beaucoup le contrastes des couluers dans cette photo. Cela apporte beaucoup de relief et la perspective de la route me plait beaucoup. Beau travail.

Hi Lars

Good repetition of the red & whitw Danish flags with superb lead in lines & linear perspective from the road. Excellent colour, sharpness, & lighting contrats. Tfs!

This is the secong image in a row I have commented on with half timbered buildings. They really do make excellent subjects. The perspective of the street works well. The Danish flags seem to be taking a leading role in this street and add a nice flash of red along with the "red" family. Well done

Hoi Lars,

Dat het picturesque is kan men duidelijk zien, ik vind het al mooi dat de auto's geweerd worden, de bouwstyle spreek mij zeker aan samen met de kasseistenen in de straat.
Ook is het perspectief goed en de toevoeging van de mensen lijkt hier een must.
Mooi gedaan.

Prettige zondag,

Hej Lars, een mooi straattafereel hier! Mooi licht, een diep perspectief en een aansprekende combinatie van deze heerlijke architectuur en mensen op straat. Fijn en sterk geframed werk!
Ik benieuwd naar de rest van je nieuwe serie.
Fijne zondag,

Hi Lars,
This low angle POV works well in dramatizing the half-timbered buildings especially and catching the pedestrian traffic. The narrow street is bathed in fine light and the clarity of detail is such that one can discern the individual stones. This is a very attractive little town. Well captured, Lars.

Hi Lars, splendid view of lovely village with wonderful colors, great perspective, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Lars,
well captured shot froma good pov. The warm light is very nice and the colours are well exposed. What makes me smile is that quite no one of the persons walking in your direction is looking forward. Well done! Tfs and best wishes.

Hi Lars. You made some really nice use of that walkway for some diagonal fun with your depth. It's neat how the textures on the roofs and walkway seem to mimic each other. Beautifully done Lars!

Bonsoir, mon ami Lars,
Comme il est plaisant de voir qu'il existe des villes qui ont su conserver une taille humaine.
Vieilles maisons aux bien jolies façades, une rue pavée laissée aux piétons.
Se promener et admirer la beauté laissée par nos aïeux.
Une très belle prise de vue.

Hi Lars,
The luminosity and colors, coupled with an interesting architecture and daily life scene gives a good impact to the image. Another cropping option was to crop right at the left of the group of people in the BG, but then we get less perspective...

Bonjour Lars,
une petite scène de vie courante dans un village à deux styles architecturaux, celui de droite, ancien est certainement le plus beau avec ses colombages.
Superbes couleurs et lumières. Un cadrage qui donne la priorité à ces belles demeures anciennes.

Hello Lars,
Nice natural colors all over the scenery!I like very much the peaceful feeling gives to me this photo.Very pov you choose also to enjoy a nice depth!


Hi Lars
Nice capture of the houses along the road. Good perspective and interesting architecture.
Have a nice day.

Daily life, daily shot...
Typical scene and mood...
The real life.

Olá Lars, I was looking for the place where you took your last post, but I guess that it's not at sight here. Very beautiful town, with a pleasant relaxed atmosphere. A lovely sunny day that made the colors and architectural details stand out against an atractive blue sky. Good composition with the diagonals of the street coming from the two corners.

Lars bonjour.
Une rue typique sous le soleil et bien animée par ce festival. Que du bonheur. J'aime ces façades qui ont traversé le temps et qui donnent beaucoup de charme au cliché.

Hi Lars,

Excellent shot, well framed and an excellent lighting control. TFS

when I was a kid there were many timber houses with this kind of roof, it was an european heritage brought by european immigrants, nowadays they no more exist.
very nice light and pov to show these traditional houses, interesting how they are similar with those we can find in england, france and germany.


Good morning Lars,
the paved street with visitors stride along has a calm effect when looking at.
I heard that this area near Aarhus has many small towns, rural denmark par-excellence.
Lovely sight of the red roof-tiles houses built with wooden beama, the flags mingling beautifully, and pleasent to look at.
Nice new day,

Hello Lars,
It is a charming street with beautiful buildings, I like timber frame architecture. Austrian flags and the coats of the tourists match.
