Gyeongju at Night: The Anapji Ponds

In Gyeongju, we lived in a traditional Korean house, a Hanok. Hanoks are constructed according to the doctrine of the Five Elements "Wood, Fire, Metal, Earth and Water" which is widely used in Asia. Wood, paper, clay (mixed with water), stone and metal are used to get as close as possible to the 5 elements.


Color-Key pictures of Frankfurt am Main

Frankfurt am Main, Düsseldorf, Cologne and Bonn on the Rhine, Passau on the Danube, Hamburg on the Elbe - night shots in these cities are particularly impressive as color-key images due to the reflections in the rivers and waters. Long exposures create a silky water surface that makes reflections appear particularly effective. However, the transformation from a color image to a Color-Key picture with Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop is relatively easy compared to the creation of suitable source material, where a lot can happen. If e.g. at the crucial moment a pair of ducks land on the calm water surface and generate waves over waves ... then it is time to wait, wait, wait.
