Philipp Klinger Photography's photostream Pro User
I'm very happy that many people add me as a contact, but please don't be mad when i don't add you to my list too right away. It's very hard to keep a contact list with more than 1000 users on it ;)
I'm a student of computer sciences based in Germany, although my family is of polish origins.
I don't do photography for a long time - i discovered it as my hobby in may 2007, just around the time i arrived here at flickr. Being here for nearly one year now, i can say that i've found many great friends and seen huge amounts of brilliant photos.
You can drop your comments in the following languages, that i understand: German, Polish, English, French, Italian, Spanish
Unfortunately my knowledge of italian and spanish does not yet allow me to write comments in these languages, so i have to write them english.
Until october 2007 i had been using a pentax DSLR with various lenses, but then decided to switch to Canon, as i wanted to be able to get all the stuff i needed in a photo shop around the corner and because Canon has better Tele lenses than Pentax. After half a year of using Canon, i decided to switch to the Nikon D300, as it offers me many things i've been missing on my Canon (Weather sealing, a good walkaround lens!, a 100% viewfinder - i don't like cropping and a well made battery grip - the one for the 40D was just ridiculous).
My current gear:
Nikon MB-D10 battery grip
Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II
Nikkor AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8
Nikon AF-D 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5
Sigma 50mm f/1.4
Zenitar 16mm f/2.8 fisheye
Benro CN-258 Carbon Tripod + Markins Q3 Traveller Ballhead with Novoflex Q=Base.
Things i like: Good music (indie, punk, alternative), movies, tiramisu, sunny weather, skiing, my friends, my work (not kidding!), and so much more...
Things i hate (and i mean really hate): Pink Polo Shirts, popped collar, and especially both things combined; Sprouts; And what i hate most: Terminator III (how could they ruin the series with this crap????!!!)

"Phillip's photostream is one of this photographers,
who have really inspired me to become better!
Every work from him is just perfect!
I nearly visit his photostream everyday

There isn't even one photo from him, that i don't like.
Also his HDR work is one of the best in Flickr.
I hope he's going to keep his wonderfull work up."

Ray Wise says:
"Without any shadow of a doubt - Philipp is my favourite photographer and graphic processor on Flickr... His photos can be SOOC or HDR and still look immaculate every time - his composition and eye to detail are superb, his processing and rendering are just amazing - and never over the top!
In short, an inspirational photographer that anyone can learn from - and probably will."

"Just thought I should pen down my thoughts. Phillip is a stunning photographer, I am always amazed since he produces something different with each shot.
I'm a big fan of his HDR, Night Photography, Sunsets and Landscape shots, not to mention the Street photography shots. He's such an inspiration and just looking at his photos can drive away any mental block.
I should say he's got some of the best snaps on Flickr. I am honored by your visits to my photostream :)Wishing you the very best in this profession/hobby."

makes you feel special and honored to be one of his many contacts.

"Phillip is one of the few who consistently inspires me to do better. Seeing the images he creates drives me to look again at what opportunities I may have missed in my own search. Inspriational is not really strong enough a word. Natural talent indeed, and a jolly nice bloke too."

"dcdead's photos are stunning. Especially his HDR works are masterpieces. I always look forward to see new pictured from him when i open flickr in my browser."

"Philipp logged in on flickr for the first time about half a year ago. This also was the time when he started with photography. I'm amazed everytime i see the progress he has made since then.
I like the variety of his photos - one day he surprises us with wonderful landscape photography, the next day he has amazing animal photos up his sleeve.
I hope he will stay here on flickr for a very long time and if he will be improving his skill so fast as he did until now we can expect great things!"
