Thank you Gabriel, for your visit and compliment. Have you seen my pictures of Romania (Apuseni)? I like Romania very very much!

All the best from Holland, Wolfgang

Wolfgang, I'm glad that I found your gallery now and not much later. You still have a number of pages that someone can still revue the entire gallery ... I don't try to do that when people have over 20 pages of photos.

I read your profile and it seems like you are open to the idea of discussing the quality of our photos? As I look through your gallery I can definitely see a point where things really begin to improve. From this photo, moving forward to today, I really see something different than in the previous photos. I see more effort and thoughtfulness and it has paid off well. Regardless whether the difference is equipment, different processing, improved knowledge on your part, or a combination of all of these, you should know that people can really see the shift in your work … all well done!

I could definitely point you to the same spot in my collection on Panoramio. It was about this time last year that I made the decision to stop using “auto” mode. At the time I couldn’t even define “good exposure”. I threw myself into learning “proper” photography and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!

Sorry for all the rambling …

Best regards,

Kevin

Yes, Kevin, I sure am open to discussing the quality of my photos. I even appreciate this a lot more than comments of only "good shot, like 5", if you know what I mean ;-) About the improvement of quality you think to notice in my gallery, this has of course to do with all the things you mention, but you must not forget that all these photos of Turkey, Greece etc. have been made on a 3 months bicycle-journey, where your key objective is not making the best photo of the place, but having a photo as souvenir. In 80% the daytime is not the right one, very often the weather is not the right one and so on, and so on. That's why the camera was on automatic mode, it was just: if you see something, grab the camera out of the handlebar bag and shoot! ;-)

Now I have more time, a tripod, the time to work with photoshop, I can try out and look out for objects that are worth dealing with them.

My first camera was a russian SLR back in the seventies, which had no automatic at all, you even had to determine the exposure with the help of a light meter ;-) not to mention things like autofocus etc. So the technical basis has always been present, what I have to learn, is: the right light for the right scene, the right crop, the right angle etc.

And that's where Pano (and people like you who citicize) is really helpful to me.

Greetings, Wolfgang
