Oooooh!! I like this photo, Caro! You exercise such perfect control over the lighting to create the silhouette of your pianist amidst both source light from beyond the draperies and reflected light from the surface of the piano. The result is dramatic! Excellent!!

Now, how long did you wait for those clouds to appear?! (Oh, sorry, these days the clouds are everywhere, I guess you didn´t have to wait for them to show up at all!) But again you captured the light just at the perfect moment. I think I´d like to see this photo in a picture book of Berlin. It provokes a whole lot of different emotions inside of me. Good job, Caro!

I love the first and the last one especially, though all of them are good. The last one evokes a weird desire in me. A feeling of wanting to tavel the world. Weird, huh? I love how that VW Käfer fits into the picture perfectly! I love the rain and the fact that the picture isn´t dark and gloomy but looks rather soft, calm, and warm.

Ah, Caro!! Thanks so much! ;D ;D I think you take really interesting street scene photos. My favourite is the last one. I agree with Swantje; you obtained such a vibrant lighting effect by capturing a particular moment as the auto passed by. I also like the way the light reflects in the window of the building on the right and in the wet street.
My other favourites are #3 ("Leute in Bahnhof") and #5 ("Gitarrist #2").
I like the unusal perspective taken in the Bahnhof reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock film North by Northwest.
The first guitarist somehow reminds me of a young Arlo Guthrie. The second guitarist picture has such a timeless feel to it like a scene out of the Nineteenth Century. I had the idea that it would make a good "sketch":
Such an interesting array of grey tones. Great job again Caro.
haha, hey I like what you did with the guitarist pic! hahaha, really funny that you use the German words hahaha, I always have a problem with giving my photos names hahaha.
Ahm, yes, I actually like the last one best,too. Because it turned out really cool, I think. We were standing in the rain, under a little roof and were waiting for the rain to stop. And we saw all those people moving really fast and my friend and I just took out our cams and shooting as many photos as possible hahaha, and then ,by accident there was the umbrella, the car, the light, all at once and I had the luck to take my picture exactly in THAT moment! haha. Ahm, the other pics, yes, I love taking pictures of musicians on the street hihi. I'm glad you like them! Steve, did you take any pictures lately? Or any other memebers here?
LET'S DANCE! thanks cyn "Drinking is by far my favourite.....and dancing around naked in my jardin!!!!! LIRPA&LIRPA MAKE MY DAY!

Here's a picture that I took a couple years ago when I took a special night tour of Hearst Castle near San Simeon, California. During this tour, volunteer actors dressed up in the clothing styles of the days of William Randolph Hearst and essentially played the role of visitors to the Castle during the 1930s. The bus which took us to the castle began at the bottom of the hill and the road up to the Castle was shrouded in fog. As we neared the top of the mountain we suddenly came out of the fog and into the afterglow of the sunset. This picture (taken without a flash) was taken near the beautiful swimming pool just as twilight turned to dusk. I felt what this place must have been like during the glory days.
