This is from Vika in Oslo, where some scenes from the film Max Manus was filmed. The story is from the war years 1940-45. I think the background with the truck and bicycles adds to the war time mood.
A smoke machine had been used, which made the background more diffused.
I added a sepia treatment in photoshop using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.
Tick Colorize, then set Hue to 35 og Saturation to 20.I received a Silver Award in the digital class in the spring competition 2009 of the Norwegian Photographic Society (NSFF) with this picture.
1029 pictures were entered, by 156 amateur photographers and 26 clubs.
But there was more:
Highly Commended (Hederlig Omtale):
SPRAY PAINTING (Spraymaling)
ON THE TRAM (På trikken)
AUTUMN OF LIFE (Livets Høst)
Especially pleased since this was the first time I entered in the competition. I got no 6 in Norway!
