Apologies that I am using English instead of German - it is meanwhile easier for me although born, brought up, and educated in Germany.
Photography became my serious hobby about 40 years ago.
When I joined a club in 1998 I considered myself being a quite good photographer . But meanwhile I know that I really started learning only as a club member.
My preferred subjects are landscapes, especially capturing a certain mood at a time although I am taking anything what fancies me.
In the old days I rejected any manipulation except basic improvements such as increasing contrast etc. but meanwhile I consider photography as a medium for art and therefore I dislike any rules or restrictions.
