[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Throughout the Lofoten you will find in the middle of nature sculptures and other types of art. The project Artscape Nordland is that a work of art, by its presence, creates a place of its own. The sculpture also visualizes its surroundings, thus giving the place a new dimension. Artscape Nordland has also given rise to a wide-ranging and important debate on contemporary art in the region.

This sculpture is called Head and is created by Markus Raetz from Switzerland. When you walk around it, it will change its form 16 times. From one side it will look like a portrait from the other side it will be a head turned upside down.

I decided to take the photo from this side to also show the ruins of a WWII German radar station.

Hi Niek,

Good use of the rule of third creating a nice composition with the ruins in the far left. Good focus and color and f/22 is good but why is the FG out of focus or did you blur it? The area around the neck seem to have a little too much shine, I would have cleaned it in PP.


Love this photo many layes so you can spend alot of time looking at it :) Nice capture :)

Hi Niek,
A fine close-up of this modern profile sculpture. I like the use of perfect shallow DOF with the spectacular BG scenery in a blurred form.
Very natural colors and appropriate lighting on the sculpture.
Very neat work.

Dear Niek,

What an amazing focus and choice of POV you have gone for in this shot!
Like the color contrast to the blurry BG, and the sky adds mood into the scene.
The sharpness and DOF are well done.
Good work!

Kind regards,

Hello Niek
Very well focused on the statue placed well in the frame too and good contrast colors with BG while the depth is beautiful as well,lovely light on the FG subject and well captured.
