I’ve been putting a little more effort into editing existing, older images lately. All the new additions to Lightroom and Photoshop in the last 12 months have given me a completely different perspective on images that I’ve been sorting out or are boring. The picture of Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre was taken during a visit […]

Black and white photos taken from various projects
Early this morning I got to photograph the town hall of the city of Cuxhaven. Light and weather were finally good for the project. After that, I went again briefly to the public restroom at the sea dike. My last shot was taken under rather unfavorable conditions.
I had picked out a few photo locations for architecture before the trip. On the German side, this was the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. The light there was unfortunately already too bright, yet the Vitra Design Museum designed by Frank Gehry and the Vitra House. Unfortunately for us, there was a rubble […]
A picture with the 20mm Voigtländer on the Fuji GFX. In 16:9 format, this works without vignetting. However, the outermost edges are quite blurry. As make-shift solution for – converted – 16mm on DSLR-Fullframe, however, still quite decent.
Here are two somewhat abstract experiments on a wheat field. Both shots with the Nikon D850 and the Nikkor 24f/3.5 PCE. The first image is a multi-exposure of two shots, processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and finally in Silver Efex Pro. The second image, with similar processing, but only a single exposure.
Today I took some infrared pictures with the modified Nikon D80. About 4 more weeks, then it will be worth it with the foliage on the trees. Both images were taken with the D80, Nikkor 16-85 and a Hoya 720nm infrared filter. Editing was done in Photoshop and Lightroom on black and white.
One of the most attractive buildings in Cuxhaven is unfortunately completely overbuilt in the harbour and not very well maintained in the surrounding area. The D850 was used with the 24mm PC-E and 2 ND filters (13 stops) to achieve > 4 minutes exposure time.
Some pictures from yesterday’s Santa Pauli Christmas Market visit. I have to go for the Dancing Towers again with more time. Great architecture. Details… …and one time in full view.
Here’s the attempt to take a picture of the historical public bathroom close to the dike at the ferry harbour in Cuxhaven.
Two black/white pictures from Bremerhaven. The pictures were thought from the outset without color, so no subsequent “oh yes, that might work also” pictures. I have to do the Klimahaus again when the Christmas lights have been removed.
