exact lines. Is it right that you made a duotone ? Or just put it into blue ? (I ask because everybody has a different screen) I like your way of seeing the world. You take a big thing and model out the essential structure and you show a world with a different look. The colours are colours of a different world (regarding this series). And regarding your quote about not putting pictures into panoramio because it is not the platform to do so, I don't map every picture. But I have the feeling, why not put in this or that picture. I have a different way of showing things than you have but this is a platform to do so. It would be sad if everybody would have the same way of express himself. And yes, I also put in pictures of places where I've been to. So does my girlfriend. But I don't take pictures as I did in the beginning of my panoramio time. I am looking forward to the wide angle lense I hope I'll get soon because I have so many things in mind I want to make.
Once again your series is great.
Carsten, these one like the others are all RGB pictures. I hope I don't disappoint you, but I mainly use iPhoto on my Mac to shift and transform colors to something that I like. With iPhoto you can add and detract color at the same time, which can lead to interesting results. You also play with the black levels and the tones, as I did in the picture of the Josephskreuz, for which you gave me a YS. Thanks for that and also for your comments!
As a matter of fact the point you made is clear. Of course everyone makes own decisions about posting and everyone has indeed showing his own way of things and that's a good thing. I only think sites like Flickr are more suited as a photo sharing platform, but maybe they attract other public. On panoramio you've got some real nice and friendly people but you can't reorder your photos which is very inconvenient e.g. So it's a bit of this or that. Also I am posting different images than in the beginning, like you, and not only pics that show a rather plain view of the world that's maybe interesting for others.
Hi Erik, you are right about panoramio. As a matter of fact I never made an account in flickr. Do you work with that site ? What is the main reason for this site ? The sharing ? Or somehow related to other projects ?
Ha Carsten, I also didn't make an account in Flickr myself. It doesn't appeal very much to me, although the possibilities are much more than those of Panoramio. I cannot exactly tell why. Maybe the fact that it has so many users who are not really interested in photography itself but merely in establishing their own existence or manifesting themselves, their families and their pets. Panoramio is much simpler and was built firstly as a means for geo tagging photos in Google Maps and Google Earth, and secondly as a means to share photos. For Flickr, the opposite counts.
