The Portfolio

  • The old sailors inn.

    The old sailors inn.

  • The Astoria Hotel near Copenhagen Central Station. I love this building, but I can also understand why people find it hard to love it. I guess it is one of those buildings, that either you love it or you hate it, and probably no in-betweens.

  • Den Gamle Ventesal

    I just got this one delivered - number 1 of 30. I can't wait to exhibit it. It is the old waiting room for the trams in Copenhagen.

  • Langelinie

    Langelinie pavilion on a calm and cold evening.

  • Old Street in Copenhagen

    Magstræde in Copenhagen.

  • Langebro for fuld damp

    Full steam forward - Langebro in Copenhagen.

  • A Train to Roskilde

    A train rushing towards Roskilde in Denmark.

  • On the way home through the Theatre

    This passage goes under the connection between the old and the new stage of The Royal Danish Theater (Det Kongelige Teater) in Copenhagen. In 1931, the new stage opened, but it had several impractical constructions, like the audio studio wasn't sound isolated. It remained problematic until it was closed in 2008.

  • High Tide in Nyhavn

    Nyhavn is one of the biggest attractions for the tourists in Copenhagen. I can see why.

  • The Empty Central Station in Copenhagen

    Copenhagen Central Station is a busy station, but this morning I was lucky to capture an empty platform. I particularly like the play between the orange elektrical light and the blue natural light.

  • When the Day Turned to Night in Nyhavn

    This is a digital painting on top of a daytime photo, transforming it into a night time photo.

  • The Standard

    The Standard in Copenhagen houses a couple of nice restaurants. It used to be the ferry terminal, for the ferries to Sweden.

  • Rubjergknude lighthouse

    Rubjergknude light house is no longer in service. It is half covered in a sand dune. There used to be a cafe only a few years ago, but the pressure from the sand, broke the house. You can still see the remains of it. --Jacob Surland www.caughtinpixels.com Art sale as limited prints. Photo by Jacob Surland, Licensed Creative Commons non-commercial v4.0. No Derivative Work.

  • The Meeting Between Drama and Peace

    Dramatic versus empty. You rarely find Copenhagen Central Station this empty.

  • Great Belt Bridge in Dark Light

    A long exposure photo of the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark.

  • Patterns in the floor

    When I exhibited at Chester Art Fair 2015, I got the chance to see Chester Cathedral. An amazingly beautiful cathedral built in the shape of an enormous big cross. It's like it has more churches in one, or many chapels if you like. This pattern on the floor I think is a bit of a secret. It's hidden behind the main altar, next the choir boy's benches. It's a sort of a room right in the middle of the church, but for some reason you miss it. --Jacob Surland www.caughtinpixels.com Art sale as limited prints. Photo by Jacob Surland.

  • Glassblower Pub London

    You find London empty at 5.30 am. Glassblower pub is placed very close to the famous Regent Street. The first people were on their way to work, and the first London buses drove around on their routes. A few window cleaners were cleaning the windows and polishing brass of various shops and pubs.

  • Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens Main Enterance

    Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens is the second oldest amusements parks in the world. At Christmas they open with Christmas Stalls where you can buy all kinds goodies for your belly and go around and get a true Christmas feeling. Absolutelly very recommendable if you ever go to Copenhagen during Christmast. This is the main entrance. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com

  • Blue Whale in Blue

    The skeleton of a blue whale haning in the London Natural History Museum.

  • Portalized Cathedral in the Snow

    The timing of a photo can make the whole difference. White snow, a sinister sky and yet still a bit of sunshine. The Cathedral in Roskilde seen through a portal on a winters day.

  • The Empty Standard

    These days a couple of restaurants and a jazz club occupies the old ferry terminal in Copenhagen.

  • Up in the sky - hyper speed

    Never forget to change your perspective, you might see something interesting. Just be careful not to go into hyper-speed. Sydney skyscrapers from the ground and straight up in the air. --Jacob Surland Easy to read and understand tutorials on www.caughtinpixels.com Art sale as limited prints. Photo by Jacob Surland.

  • Manarola Day to Night

    The photo covers many hours compressed into one photo. There is a 10 minute nighttime star trail exposure and day time bathing action.

  • Tower Bridge and City Hall under the Stars

    London City Hall with the London Tower Bridge just after midnight. Only a few people hovers around the area, but it in the daytime people crowds this place. The stars are peeking out from the skies. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com

  • Mound Sunset and Stars

    A dramatic sunset with stars above.

  • The Bell Tower in the Blue Hour

    The famous Bell Tower in Bruges is towering so high, that you can see it from many places in the city. This is from Burg Square.

  • Venetian Canal

    We got up early to get some sunrise shots of Venice, and on our way to our Sunrise Spot, we took some shots like this one from the backside of Doná Palace and Hotel Colombina. There is quite a lot traffic during the day because this is the canal that leads under the Bridge of Sighs. Both taxi boats and gondolas go that way all day long. But at night, it is beautiful and quite. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com Licensed creative commons non-commercial v4.0. No derivative Work. Protected by Pixsy.com.

  • Proud Tree

    A photo from Roskilde of a single proud tree just after the sun has set.

  • Stars Above the Cathedral

    The Cathedral in Roskilde photographed when the moon was completely gone. The stars stood out nicely on such an evening.

  • Chateau Queyras with a hat on

    Chateau Queyras is placed like the old fortress it is, to guard the entrance to Queras, a beautiful area in the French. Quite a gem really, full of beautiful places and then this beautiful old castle. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com

  • Guardian Angels

    Castel Sant'Angelo or in English Castle of the Holy Angel, was the Mausoleum of Hadrian, Emporer of Rome in the second century. It sits by the river of Tiber. It leaves one with a massive impression, not because it's particularly beautiful, because it isn't, but yet, it fascinates. It used to be the tallest building in Rome.

  • Central Station in the morning

    I got the first train from Roskilde to Copenhagen Central station, and the first photo I shot was this one.

  • Mahoni Roof Rialto Reflection

    Scaffoldings covered half of Rialto Bridge when I visited Venice. This, of course, was a great disappointment, as I had planned to shoot it. I call it Scaffolding Disease, and I seem to suffer from that disease. The good thing about such situations is that you are forced to look for alternative compositions. Compositions that include at maximum half of the bridge and I am not sure I would have shot this shot, had it not been for the search for a unique composition. I wanted a photo of the bridge, and this is one of my shots. I used the roof of a beautiful wooden taxi boat, to capture a reflection of Rialto Bridge.

  • Copenhagen University at Night

    This photo is the main building of the University of Copenhagen from 1836. The University has fostered known people, one of the most famous is Hans Christian Oersted, who discovered electromagnetism in 1820. This particular photo I had waited and waited to be able to take it. The square in front of the building is always crowded with people, buses, cars, etc. But this day, only one single car was there.

  • Cold Evening at The Bean

    During the day The Bean in Chicago is crowded with people, enjoying the wild reflections. It is insanely fascinating, such a large curved mirror, and I shot a ton of photos during both day and night of The Bean. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com

  • Circle of Light

    We arrived early in the morning, minutes after the cathedral opened. It was close to empty. The gothic architecture is fantastic, and the light and the colors coming from the windows makes it a beautiful experience, as well as giving some great photos.

  • Night view from Accademia Bridge

    I just loved that three armed street lamp in that corner. I have a very soft spot for old fascioned street lamps. If I see one, I have to shoot it. --Jacob Surland Easy to read and understand tutorials on www.caughtinpixels.com Art sale as limited prints.

  • Golden Galley

    A golden galley from the Maritime Museum in Barcelona.

  • Vikingship on a winter's morning

    On a cold winters morning I found the Sea Stallion sitting alone on the land, wrapped in Christmas lights. The Sea Stallion is the world's largest reproduction of a Viking ship. The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde owns the Sea Stallion. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com

  • Snowy Weather in Nyhavn

    On a snowy day in Nyhavn in Copenhagen, I got this photo.

  • Regent Street with Busses

    Regent Street in London is ever busy. Even early in the morning, before the Underground has opened, the double decker busses are driving up and down the street. Photo by: Jacob Surland, www.caughtinpixels.com

  • London Bus and Tower Bridge

    This is an HDR photo of London Tower Bridge combined with a long exposure of a double decker London bus passing by. Photo by Jacob Surland. See more at www.caughtinpixels.com

  • The Doors are closing at Louvre

    I tried to make a composition of The Louvre, that I hadn't seen before. The place is super crowded, which makes it harder. When I got to this gate I started to play around with it. And this half closed position, makes a special composition, which I had never seen before.

  • Leaving Eltz Castle by a Car

    I forgot my jacket in the car, when I went to shoot photos of Eltz Burg & Eltz Castle. I ended standing for a couple of hours in a light but very cold wind. In the end I was rewarded by this situation, a car leaving the Castle.

  • The Cathedral by the Sea

    The Cathedral by The Sea in Barcelona is in many ways a pretty simple cathedral, but I think that is what makes it so beautiful.

  • Stairs into the Future

    The Earth Hall at the Natural History museum looks like stairs into the Future.

  • Pantheon

    This photo of the fountain in front of Pantheon is one of my favorites, from my trip to Rome. At first I didn't see it, but when I got close, this acid green color showed up. I when a bit closer, and I could see there was a shape in the water, and I went even closer to get this. And believe me, that color is as good as straight out of the camera.

  • Cologne Gold

    I don't know if there ever was Gold in Cologne, but if there was, they must have put it into this into this bridge. When I got close, I could see there is is another kind of gold on the bridge. It's full of padlocks hung by lovers. I have never ever seen so many padlocks in one place, as on this bridge. It's from one end to the other. --Jacob Surland www.caughtinpixels.com Art sale as limited prints. Photo by Jacob Surland, Licensed Creative Commons non-commercial v4.0. No Derivative Work.

    Wow, Jacob, these views are absolutely fantabulous, unreal. Great job! I love your way of post-production, it adds some magic into each pixel :) My son easily recognized Brugge, which we'd visited last month, at your photos :) I was happy to meet London, Copenhagen, Budapest, Brugges, Armenia on your pictures, and you visual version of these places are just magical, fabulous :) Thank you :)
