Introduction
I'm a NIKON

Member of Google + Crea(+)e (g.co/PlusCreate)

On my day job I am a senior technical consultant at a software company. I work on workflows all day and at night I practice on my own workflow. The former I do for almost 20 years and the latter for more than five years now. So your constructive critique on my images is always appreciated. 

I am a moderator of the HQSP Community and I am working on #HQSPPortraits / +HQSP Portraits there. Once a week it's an honor to me to select the images for the HQSP Pyramid at +HQSP Gold.


Every other week I host the bi-weekly, alternating daily photo themes #LighthouseThursday / 
#NotALighthouseThursdayThisWeek 

... and I'm exploring the various ways of digital photo manipulation ... I love to slide the controllers, to experiment and to watch what happens to the image ...

You are free to use the G+ share function, but for any further educational, business or personal use and  publications a written consent is required. If you want to use my images in any way, you can contact me by G+ notification or send me an e-mail by G+, thanks.
Don't force me to shrink my images to 500px or to blemish them with a signature, please.


Why I don't circle you back ?

Because 
  • you don't have a profile.
  • you don't share anything public
  • you don't share periodically
  • you aren't a photographer or interested in photography
  • my circles are close to the limit and I have to be selective on who I circle back. I can only circle 5K and by having 10K+ people circling me I simply just can't circle everyone back.
So don't circle me just to get circled by me.

I might circle you for two weeks, if you contribute to one of my daily photo themes for statistical reasons. But every two weeks I have to clean up those circles to make room for new contributors, so don't get mad on me for that,please.
