Welcome to my Flickr Photostream

Photography has been a passion of mine since the early 80's, never having a camera too far from reach. In the begining it was small film and digital camera's but by 2006 I started wanting better image quality. I purchased my first "bridge" camera, a Canon S5is and then a SX1is, the latter being a big disappointment. In 2010 I upgraded to a DSLR, the Canon Eos 550d. It was a noticable increase in image quality and taught me a lot about photography and it let me capture images the way I wanted to. In 2012 I went full frame with the Canon 5d Mark III and am really enjoying the differences from the aps/c body.
I really appreciate the feedback here on Flickr and comments are always welcome and encouraged.

Editing is done with Corel Paintshop Photo Pro X3 with Topaz Plugins, Dynamic-Photo HDR5, Photomatix Pro4 and a few other freebies I found trolling the net. Any RAW work is done in the trusty Canon DPP. (Update 2012: Now using PSP X4)

My photography is best viewed in Lightbox (By clicking on the photo or pressing L) or you can view a slideshow by clicking on Actions - View Slideshow.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work,



A big thank you to my Flickr contacts for your encouragement and support, you really do make the journey more enjoyable.
