over the roofs of my hometown, Bad Reichenhall. the clocktower of St. Ägidius, and in the background mt. Hochstaufen.

just discovered the linux version of lightzone. amazing user interface, excellent sharpness. the tone curve tool is just extraordinary, and the possibility to work on regions is great. however, speed and memory requirements are an issue. but bibble has got a strong competitor in the linux market.

The highlight recovery of lightzone astonished me: see the clock face: even plain sunlight I was able to work out some details.

maybe my secret affinity to abstracts, but for sure my love for harmonious compositions took me away – I simply liked this picture from the very first moment. Up to now not much postprocessing, just simple cropping was applied.

new year’s excursion to Hintersee was prolific. the kids went skating and I found some time to stroll around. It is obviously correct to call the landscape at the east bank of this lake “Zauberwald” – magic forest.

the xmas test version of bibblepro gave me opportunity to play with my raw files, and this one worked best for me in b&w.
