Usually, the human eye is superior to the lens of a camera, and we can only attempt to take the picture that our brain and eye create together. However, long exposure is a technique only the camera can master, and so these pictures are always fascinating. Because of its movement, the train in this picture - taken in Hamburg, Germany, - somehow seems to be a solid wall and still allows some glimpses into the depth of the station, which makes this print a great eye catcher.
This shot was taken inside the Black Diamond, the extension of the Danish Royal Library in Copenhagen. It's always a pleasure to be there for us and a great piece of architecture perfect for photography.
Copenhagen Distortion is one huge street party taking place midst in the city. Every day it takes place in a different district with up to 100k guests every day. A perfect opportunity for some funny, heartwarming, schocking and intimate pictures of people forgetting everything around them and just beeing themselves.
Kastellet is an old military base near Østerport in Copenhagen. The high walls and water ditches see their share of runners and cyclists. The tall trees make for some great lonely landscape shots.
The difficulty about taking pictures of the sunrise is not only to get up early enough, but also having to risk bad weather for sunrises. This photo was taken in the Netherlands, where we didn't know the area so we stumbled about, our sleepy, not yet caffeinated brains hoping for a beautiful place with a beautiful sunrise.
Is it art? Is it an animal? Is it a plant?
This picture visualizes the feeling of the North Sea. Look at it, listen to the breeze and smell the salt in the air, while the ocean is whooshing in the background.
If you ever wanted to have a photo print with London at night and the glowing London Eye, now is your chance!
There is an area in Denmark called Cold Hawaii because the waves are perfect for surfing. Well, except for the water temperature. This was a day fit for only the bravest surfers.
Humans are great at building stuff that looks like you're in a Sci-Fi movie at log shutter speeds, like the Metro
Oddly soothing and at the same time fascniating, a great picture to rest you eyes on while sipping your morning coffee or zoning out in the afternoon. Mmmmmmmh. - Wait, did it just move?
Copenhagen's district Nørrebro is inhabited by people from all parts of the world andknown for its poly-cultural society.
The Great Belt Bridge runs between two Danish islands and actually has one of the longest suspension bridges of the world with 1,6km. When the weather is good, a beautiful view out of the car window is guaranteed. Is the weather rather stormy, though, you will have your hands full keeping the car in the lane.
Yet another picture of Copenhagen Distortion, where this girl was dancing in a cloud of smoke and dancing to the beat. This image for us embodies living in the moment, all by yourself, yet surrounded by people.
This dreamy shot is from a place called "Sydhavnstippen" in a nature reservoir where sheep and a small herd of Alpacas run free in the south of Copenhagen.
Do you also get a little dizzy when looking at the picture intensely, trying to take in the tree in its whole? Nature is a great architect of patterns and webs.
We're just gonna leaf this here.

Like with sunrises, long exposure shots at night can be pretty tough. Especially when it's cold and you really need to pee. However, your body can go to great lengths for a good photo. Hopefully, it will be worth it.
Kalvebod Fælled is a former artillery training range. Now, it is completely cleared of unexploded munitions (hopefully) and a big area where the Copenhageners can go to enjoy nature. A southern corner of the island is even an EU-recognized bird protection area!
This must be one of my favourite shots I've ever taken in my life. My badass photography girlfriend posing for a shot at an epic location we were freezing our butts off to get to. ^Jonathan
Source can be important, but location, velocity and destination are more important.
"There is a lot of folklore about equestrian statues, especially the ones with riders on them. There is said to be a code in the number and placement of the horse's hooves: If one of the horse's hooves is in the air, the rider was wounded in battle; two legs in the air means that the rider was killed in battle; three legs in the air indicates that the rider got lost on the way to the battle; and four legs in the air means that the sculptor was very, very clever. Five legs in the air means that there's probably at least one other horse standing behind the horse you're looking at; and the rider lying on the ground with his horse lying on top of him with all four legs in the air means that the rider was either a very incompetent horseman or owned a very bad-tempered horse." - Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight
Merry Christmas everyone! Even though today is celebrated all over the globe, this picture works well all year. It actually was more of a test-shot to get the exposure right, and first when I saw the picture on the bigger screen at home I saw how much BAM this photo has. Have you spotted th star sign Ursa Major already?
