Found near a group of old fishermen in the outer parts of Hamburg.
This was a simple experiment with an external flash. When taking the picture the flash was fired in the same instance and we got this great freezed impact in water.
Last Thursday there were some great concerts at city hall. The legendary Maceo Parker had to be replaced in just two weeks but the organizers from Hannover’s famous Jazzclub managed to find a great replacement: Incognito.
After that the gifted Lutz Krajenski Big Band grooved the stage.

Matthew Baldwin has written a great article on how cyclists and motorists can coexist on the road.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos try to capture a higher contrast between the lightest and the darkest parts of a picture (see wikipedia). You would normally need a special camera for taking HDR pictures, but you can imitate the effect by taking multiple pictures (>=3) with different exposures. Typical consumer cameras have only very recently introduced automated procedures for taking pictures with different exposures. Hackers have retro-fitted this capability to much older compact cameras such as my Canon IXUS 100IS. Using the alternative firmware CHDK you can run a script that creates the necessary 3 exposures. ( I’ve blogged about CHDK and how to install it before).
