Dear Followers

By now you should have noticed that there is a great new Google+ feature: Collections. A feature I was waiting for since my first post on Google+ and a feature that - in my opinion - will revolutionize the usage of Google+.

I know that many of you are following me for my photography work. However I have also many other interests and since the majority of you is only interested in my photography I refrained very often from posting unrelated stuff since I didn't want to bore the majority of my followers and fill their stream with stuff they're not interested in.

Now with collections this changes. Please visit my collections at https://plus.google.com/u/0/+CarstenSchlipf/collections and pick the collection you're interested in.

Be warned! In case you are only interested in my photos you will see more posts that are not related to photography in the future. If you don't want to see these, pick one of the current collections:

Photography:
Photos I have created.

Photography Stuff:
Everything that is related to photography, like tutorials, photography gear, imaging software and so on.

Ranting on miscellaneous stuff.: 
Things that upset me. Stuff you probably don't want to see, but that I couldn't resist to post.

No collection set:
Either posts where I simply forgot to set the correct collection or anything else that might bore you to death.

Simply click on 'Follow' to follow a collection or on 'Following' to unfollow a collection.

Have fun!

+Frank Nitsch - Well, I guess profile followers are those that follow you and all of your collections. Collection followers are:
profile followers
+ collection followers
- profile followers that have opted out

However just a guess.

After all followers is just another worthless number. You may have 10k dead followers worth less than 1k active followers.

Roping Down

Did you know that slugs are capable of roping themselves down on a thread of slime? I was pretty surprised seeing this slug taking the short route down from a tree.

Happy Father's Day

Oops! Your mum may have eaten him.

Warning! Don't zoom in, if you are arachnophobic.

"Hey there! What's up?"

A horse walks into a bar.
Asks the barkeeper: "Hey pal! Why are you pulling a long face?"

Or why a Walimex 14mm UWA isn't the best portrait lense.

Get out of my way! NOW!!!

Luckily I've managed to prevent the almost inevitable crash in the last split of a few minutes.

Uploaded in High resolution as always, so zoom in to look closer into its eyes.

Facebook seems to be even more ruthless with taking ownership over what you post there than I had blogged at http://aperturized.com/essays/2015/01/copyright-and-licenses/ previously.

Busy Bee

Ever thought of what humans could achieve would they be as diligent as a bee? And how peaceful humans could be knowing that they can sting another one just once in their life?

Sorry, could not resist posting this, but it's just too funny (as a user, who hasn't bought LR6 yet and will refrain from buying it more and more and feels sorry for those CC customers):

The basic gist is that you’ll need to be using a high-resolution screen, a powerful CPU, and a newer and higher-end GPU in order to see huge performance gains from this new feature. If you’re using a smaller screen and/or a slower processor and/or an older GPU, you may actually see slower performance with GPU acceleration turned on.

So if you want to benefit from the performance improvements, you first need to buy the latest state of the art computer, while the "performance improvements" on older hardware slow LR down even more.
When Adobe unveiled Lightroom CC/6 last month, one of the big features in the update was support for graphics processors (GPU) in order to speed things up

Ich kann nur bestätigen, was in dem Artikel notiert ist: Bei kleinerem Bildschirm und älterer Grafikkarte rennt LR 6 prima auf meinem frisch eingerichteten gebrauchten PC ganz ohne GPU Unterstützung. Deren Schwerpunkt liegt derzeit noch auf den großen und hochauflösenden Bildschirmen und einigen wenigen Funktionen der Fotoentwicklung. Dennoch läuft alles zehnmal schneller als noch unter der 32-bit Architektur des von mir zuvor unter 5.7 genutzten Rechners. Aber der Hauptspeicherbedarf ist wahrlich raumgreifend.

Hatte mir vorher manchmal gewünscht, mit einer anderen Software in der Fotobearbeitung gestartet zu sein, nun bin ich ehrlicherweise ein wenig zu bequem zum Wechseln.

I am a passionate amateur photographer and rather shoot things than people.

Therefore I am more interested in constructive criticism than in plain "awesome picture" comments. Tell me what I can do better!

For a living I am a software user interface developer designing high priced enterprise software.
