Autumn is at its peak in the moment. I captured this yellow/orange tree in sunset light in the woodlands around our lake. I transferred it into a burning tree using the oil paint filter (once again).

Happy days. Reinhold

Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.

Happy days.

Perfect Cloud

Perfect Cloud

I left Berlin for the weekend and drove back home. We had beautiful weather. Sunshine and very mild temperatures at our lake. I sat on the terrace and watched the clouds passing by. While I was watching I asked myself how would a perfect cloud look like? I sat there for quite a while and captured this small, cool looking, perfect cloud. Now I am back in Berlin… and I can still see it passing by.

Happy and sunny days!

Fineart Berlin

As ususal I couldn’t resist to do some Photoshop manipulations to my recent Berlin images. You know this feeling? You see a composition, you know how you want it to look. But there are disturbing objects in the frame, there are missing objects in the frame. Now this is the time when I start working with my MAC, my Wacom tablet and Lightroom and Photoshop. And to be true. It is not always the result which creates the fun factor. It is the process creating an image the way I see it in my imagination.

Another image of my “Fiction Series”. Location of the beach and beach chair is the coast resort Schillig in the National Park Wadden Sea. My famous puppet of my “Puppets Series” has been captured at a fashion fair in Frankfurt.

Image 13/20 – Vanished into Gold… another composition of my “Fiction Series”. If the weather is bad… rain and storm over here… again… I connect my WACOM tablet and start painting in Photoshop. I’d rather be out in the landscape. Maybe tomorrow…

Dancing with Birds

Image 10/20 – Dancing with Birds… an image of my “Fiction Series”. It is created from 2 different images. A puppet of a fashion show in Frankfurt and an image of Schillig, a sea resort in the National Park Wadden Sea in North Germany. I think dancing with birds is a good start of the coming long weekend.

Bronze Trees

Image 6/20 – Do you know this feeling? An awesome tree or a group of trees. And no way to isolate it from the green and dark background? This is always the case in the North of Germany. We have no hills and no trees on top of these hills to ease object separation. I captured this group several times. A few days ago I decided to correct this in Photoshop. It looks a bit “abstract”… but I like it.

Urban Landscape: Sky Tower in Light

Sometimes landscape photography has to include urban landscapes. I still miss to shoot architecture. Living in a remote spot in the North of Germany, there are not many tall buildings nearby. Actually NO tall buildings. When I search through my archives I often stumble over an urban / architecture image. So today I have a go. This image was taken a few years ago in Frankfurt. Processed in LR and PS today. A journey back in time…

Tears in Heaven

Tears in Heaven

Watching the news, reading newspapers or listening to the radio can create one reaction only: TEARS IN HEAVEN! I created my composition in Photoshop using an image taken in Hamburg and 2 layers (eye and tears). This image is part of my Fiction Series…wish you a tearless time! But may be that is fiction too!
