Hey people.

I know you haven't seen much of me lately. Hopefully I will be able to be a little more active from now on. At the moment I'm visiting my girlfriend in Barcelona, and i thought i could use some of the spare time i have on making a post in here with some of my pictures. I'm gonna try to keep it updated with some new pictures every now and then, but for a start here is five of the pictures I like the most so far.
I wont bother posting exif-data on most of the shots, since it's pretty much just "drive-by-shooting", which means that they're just standard tourist photos.

Enough with the talking, I hope you like the pictures :)

#1

The Pyrenees, from our trip to southern France.



#2

From a cave somewhere inside the Pyrenees (ISO1600, so a bit noisy).

The view from an old fortress in the Pyrenees.

Not bad for standard tourist photos! :wink: Nice diversity in just five pictures. I like the composition in number four, it shows Barcelona from different point of view.

Que disfruta España!

Very nice, I like them all, but especially number 4. If it's technically sharp all over, it'd make a lovely big print...

...here is a few more pictures for those interested. Please keep in mind that it is still tourist photography with not a lot of time spent on each picture. Neither capturing or editing. Enjoy! :)

An old cathedral (i think) somewhere in Barcelona.

The Tour de France coming to Barcelona.

An alley downtown.

I like the alley in black&white most, it's quiet and peaceful...
a timeless shot, although there is a bit of cliché involved :) nice work!

Hey again. Thanks for all the kind comments. I know that the shots might not all be very unique, but tbh that wasn't the point anyway. My mission is to create a mix between standard tourist photography, and some higher level amateur photography. Or in short, to see if it's possible to take some great holiday pictures, while still having time left for the actual holiday :wink: . I mean don't get me wrong, I like to spent a lot on time on photography, but that's not always an option. That's why i decided to do it like this.

And enough with the yappin, here's a few more pictures...


#9
Image
Chilling at the train yard.



#10
Image
Pillars in Park Güell.



#11
Image
South European styled house.



#12
Image
Construction designed by the famous Gaudi.


Note: The three landscape pictures is taken in the popular Park Güell, a park designed by Gaudi. It's a beautiful place, but it can be quite hard to photograph due the the very high amount of tourists in the holiday seasons.

Once again thx for all the nixe comments. I'm glad that you like the pictures. But if you think there's something I could have done better please feel free to tell me that as well :-)
And I'll try to have a few more pictures ready one of the nearest days.

I'll just add a couple of more pictures. This time from a little town called Tossa de Mar, around 1.5 hours north of Barcelona. A friend of my girlfriend was so kind to take us there and show us around. Unfortunately I didn't do a very good job at capturing it's beauty. These two pictures however turned out okay, imo.

A beautiful house in the old streets of Tossa.

Pretty classic landscape photography of the amazing view from the lighthouse.
