About me

Hi and welcome to my personal profile!

Als Community Manager sehe ich mir mehrere hundert Fotos am Tag an, tausende im Monat. Findest Du einen Kommentar von mir, war Dein Foto für mich ein "eye-catcher", der es mir wert war, zu schreiben. In der Regel verbinde ich einen Kommentar deshalb auch zugleich mit einem "Lob".

Hauptsächlich fotografiere ich auf Reisen. Seit mehr als 30 Jahren bin ich mit meiner Familie oft in den USA unterwegs. Nur noch Hawaii fehlt auf der Liste der 50 Staaten. Wir bewegen uns viel abseits der ausgetretenen Touristenpfade.

Wer interessiert ist: gerade habe ich begonnen, meine Geschichten und Reiseziele, fotografisch illustriert, in einem kleinen blog zu veröffentlichen.
Hier ist die Adresse:

As a Community Manager I view several hundred photos a day, thousands in a month. If you find a comment from me, your photo has been an "eye-catcher" for me, which I found worth commenting. As a rule, I combine comments with an "appreciation" at the same time.

Mainly I take pictures while traveling. For over 30 years I am traveling with my family through the United States. Only Hawaii is missing on the list of the 50 states. We love to travel off the beaten tourist tracks.

My profile photo is of 2013 in front of Portage Glacier, Alaska. A nice guy from Detroit, with whom I was talking about photography during the trip, took the picture.

I am the Country Manager of But as team we would like to make this community worth to be your favourite. In any case just let us know, what we can do for you. We try hard.

Since 12/2003 I am a member of fotocommunity and I really enjoy the chance to communicate with photographers all over the world. I´ve learned so much. I will try my very best to help you with any question or situation. Feel free to contact me at any time, easiest way will be a mail to support.

Oooops, a star .......:-)

    Thanks for your appreciation and your comment, Matthias! Certainly that's the idea, to tell a story (which will continue in some upcoming series). Best regards!

    Hallo Matthias! Thank you very much for your appreciation and comment! Unfortunately, this is a series of photos that I ordered in a certain sequence, indicated in the names and in the order of loading, but the page shows them in a rather random way. I do not know if this issue has a solution but I did not find it. Best regards!

    Hello Matthias
    In reference to your question "which impact has this procedure on the original photo? ". 
    I hope I don't over-explain.

    I believe based on my understanding of what I have read  grayscale images intended for visual display are commonly stored 8bits per pixel with 256 different intensities of gray tones per pixel, whereas RGB profiles such as sRGB and Adobe RGB 1998 color have intensities at 16.7 million. This method is for printing, not web display although I use these files on the web.    I calibrate my monitor and printer for Adobe RGB profile work space.  The Adobe RGB occupies 40% more volume than the sRGB profile, but by using Adobe profile in 8 bit colors it produces duller colors because of compression, so I convert from 8 bit to 16bit for the spare bits necessary  for higher reproduction color or tone intensity in print. ( I export to printer16 bits)  I scan my grayscale negatives as16 bit Adobe RGB work space and my digital camera  adobe RGB files I converted to 2.2 gamma work space for grayscale reproduction.  After editing I convert the grayscale 256 work space back to Adobe RGB for the hopefully 16.7 million color intensity  reproduction of what you see on the monitor to print.I use Epson “Advance Black and White software”  to print the Adobe RGB image files.Using this method has been satisfying, whether the method changes anything I don’t know, but it improved my print quality 100%.  It boils down to calibrating your system though.I hope I have not overly rambled in this explanation, and I am most concerned  that l am understandable.  This is base on readings that I hope I interpreted correctly.

    Hallo und guten Tag Matthias,
    herzlichen Dank für dein Interesse und den Kommentar zu meinem Foto des spanischen Dorfes. Ich habe mich sehr darüber gefreut. Ich habe mir gerade auch einige Seiten deiner Bilder angeschaut und dabei festgestellt, dass mir viele deiner Motive von unseren eigenen Reisen sehr bekannt sind.
    Freundliche Grüße vom Niederrhein,

    Thanks for the positiv comment. It make me happy to have a input from a CommManager.
  • Gary Thaxton 22/01/2021 18:01

    I will respond to your question for my rationale, but the decision for using this procedure was years ago and I need to review my notes.   I'm working on a project that I need to finish, but I will respond.  Thanks for the interest.
