"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars!"

I started to photograph seriously in 2013 with a Nikon D7100. Before that I used a Nikon D60 and various other gear. During a trip to Namibia with its wonderful and fascinating landscapes I completely got hooked on creating good pics and so I try to improve my passion more and more. - Regrettably mostly in my vacations, when I have leisure and a clear head for it. Meanwhile I bought a Nikon D800E which turns photographing into a real pleasure.

It is a concern of mine, to keep my pictures natural, they should show what I've seen in that moment. I don't wanna make them more colorful, more beautiful, more.... I'm definitely no friend of "over-photoshopped" pics, which I call "plastic-pics". ;) Of course I use Lightroom, but only to recreate the memorized picture.

You can be sure, when I put one of your pictures into my "Favourites"-gallery, I am deeply impressed by it. And of course I look forward to your honest comments and esteem constructive criticism to my photos. Thank you for reading my biography and visiting my 500px profile.
