I was delighted to do so, Barbara and to review your wonderful gallery. You have some wonderful images especially the ones in which you were able to record stunning lighting moods.

Warm regards,

Thank you quickspeed. I appreciate your response to this image. I was delighted that the digital camera was this successful in such limited light.

Thank you Oram and also Dominik. Most of the work for this was the cleverness of the digital camera. I was impressed, and I could see straight away that I was pleased with it!

beautiful scenery and light


greetings from Bavaria, Hubs

Ian Stehbens on January 22, 2011

...Never, never, Maja. You will bubble over with joy! A week ago I returned both to the camera location and to the trees that are the subject of this image, and again I was immersed in the atmosphere and the moisture, but this time it was mostly rain.

...that one day will come, Maja.


Ian Stehbens on January 22, 2011

Thank you Hubs. It is interesting that you would comment on the light, for at the time I thought it was too dark for the camera but this was the result. Digital photography certainly has given me new possibilities. Thanks for the award!

Greeting from HK

Ian Stehbens on January 26, 2011

Thank you Wilson. I have spent a little time in HK and China over the years and I sense that this aspect of my photography is influenced by the great Chinese landscape artists. So it is pleasing to know that you appreciate it.

Regards from Brisbane,


wilsontcyeung on February 1, 2011

Yes, "Ian" and mood of your photos are quite Chinese. Well done

Ian Stehbens on February 1, 2011

Thanks very very much for the confirmation, Wilson.
