With last week's growth rate it'll take about 150 years to reach a following equivalent to that on my G+ profile  ;-)

+Heiko Köster if you are serious about your photography (business) then you need one. Social media is just an extra and can generate some additional visitors. Facebook is primarily interested in it's own business in contrary to G+ which supports Google's search business and is not a business itself.

Story
Tagline
I love photography.
Introduction
I'm a NIKON

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 over 15 years and the latter for more than a year 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 ...


Copyright
Unless otherwise stated the images published here are my work and under a "All rights reserved" policy. 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.
