this is the profile of d5e (pronounced dive)
I am a software developer based in Berlin area focussing on Ruby on Rails backended web services. I have a lil flickr mesh-up online which utilizes a Ruby on Rails backend. Visit

In the past time I had way too less time for shooting. But every time I come here on flickr seeing the exceptional work from photographers coming from any part of the world makes me wanting to grab the camera again.

A lot of people mess around with HDR. And a lot more people think of extremely super contrast tone mapping artwork when thinking of HDR. I have made a lil' tutorial where you can have a look at one of my basic workflows for mastering an HDR image, respectively a how-to on achieving controlled results with tone mapping tools like photomatix. The tutorial is posted on the blog of my fellow friend crazy-ivory
watch the tutorial.

2006 I signed up for flickr because I needed an API key for developing a mash-up for school. February 2007 I got myself a D40 and since them posting shots on flickr... August 2008 I sold the D40 to a fellow friend of mine who now bears company with us on flickr and I got myself a D300 as redress :)

I love taking night shots when everything is enlighted and glowing; and I love to take shots of rare and beautiful things; and I love to take the raw shots out of my db and revive them with photoshop; and I love to play with new fantastic toys ...

I appreciate any comments and feedback on my work... If there's anything interesting in your stream I usually do comment but I'm very selective with my fav's - so if I faved one of your shots you are allowed to feel honored.

    "Henry is a smart, creative and unique photographer who has his own, individual style. I think you dont see this very often here.

    He is a natural at photoshop and photography and his work is somewhere between a surreal painting and a colorful dream though it is not always a nice, friendly dream!

    Keep up the good work and I am looking forward for many great shootings in the future!!!

    Greetings Ivo"
