A Tribute to German Photographers



I generally detest powerpoint shows (for some reason they tend to jam at the end, forcing me to restart my laptop) but friends insist on sending them to me. Once in a while I receive one that contains such gorgeous images I can't bear to delete it. So I just extract the images for occasions such as this when I don't feel like raving and ranting about the political rollercoaster ride we're on. Here are some inspiring images captured by several German photographers (pity there are no credits on the powerpoint show): they help us transcend, at least for a few precious moments, our routine anthropocentrism and existential myopia.

Pak Magick...gambar yg merupakan kapal terbang jet menuju ke bulan separuh mengembang tu macam tu yang menabur "amenda" di langit kita sejak akhir-akhir ini, O! ya...chemtrail.


Namun begitu...gambar-gambarnya memang mengajaibkan.

Breath taking pictures. I wish I could take pictures like these. It would be interesting to see the EXIF information

I've opened probably hundreds of powerpoint presentations. These I haven't seen. They are exquisite! :)

Very nice prints..

However, as an avid photographer myself, I find most of the photographs too heavily Photoshopped. Many of the shots shown above cannot be produced "as is" even by very skilled photographers and very expensive equipment.

Sorry, I'm a bit of purist who prefers a photographer to exhibit his skills and the capability of the lens and camera - as he captured it.

Of course, commercial work such as wedding photos and paid magazine photos have to be retouched - the customer expects a "perfect" print.
E.g. The bride in a wedding photo is often a lot more beautiful than the actual person....hahahaha..
