Greetings Axel. I've just been wandering through your excellent pages. I like your bold colors and tight crops in composing your posted images. I chose this one to comment only because we were standing in almost the exact same spot. You have a good eye, keep up the good work.

Regards from New Jersey,

Hi Hank,

Thank you for your kind words. I started photographing in 2006. In the years before it was just fun. Usually, I take photos only on trips to foreign countries and then I do my very best to make them look more than a snapshot. I am in need to come back because I am really addicted to the States and have been there many times unfortunately I was not interested in photography at that time. Your gallery is awesome. You must be a kind of professional therefore your positive feedback means a lot. I will take a closer look at it soon.

Greetings from Germany,

I'm flattered, Axel. While I have sold some pictures, I'd cal myself more of a determined amateur than a professional. I've learned a lot over the past few years though as you will too as you continue to post; setting high standards for yourself.

Best regards,

Nice shot. I am glad that I bumped into your page. I like this one because its nice composition and rich colors in the sun. The close view of the building gives the bridge a very unique look and feel of it. Well done!
