An overall fair and true statement, at least the part you're talking
about my pictures. Thank you.

The funny thing about this picture is, that it made it's way into the
gallery by fortuity. The Original is nearly black with a scheme of a
dark grey jellyfish, extremely noisy in the dark tones. So I was just
fooling around with the picture, raising brightness and contrast, when
I discovered the colors in the picture, finally applying a noisefilter.
There it is, a nice example why to use RAW-Format... ;-)
>A strong A- because I'm a fan of Escher.
Same process as the jellyfish, but much better RAW-Material. I had to
photograph into dark black-blue water, but didn't want to let those
fishes escape without being photographed...
>Good subject, but the composition was slightly off.
Absolutely. I am thinking about a new version with different cut-out
and better lens- and exposure-correction.
>The rest of these dolts could learn a lot about composition from you.

>(most of the time)
Very perceptive and true, non-ironic. I need to find some more
compelling subjects, therefore I am thinking about some projects to
start with... but it will take a few years to present any results,
because I need more time and equipment.

Thank you very much, but you should say 'ausgezeichnet', since
'eingezeichnet' means 'drawn-in'... :-)
Your name sounds greek, right? Ever been in Germany?

Yes, ok:-) Remembered after I'd send the post. Yes, I am greek.
Ich war schon f�nfmal in Deutschland, das erste mal schon im 1987, dann
1988, 89 und vielleicht auch 1990 und 1992. Meine Patentante ist deutsche,
und deswegen habe ich auch deutsch gelernt. Ich spreche auch Englisch,
nat�rlich und jetzt lerne japanisch (schwierig!). Ich lese den Spiegel
online jeden Tag.
