Intro
Damn, this is a kiss-ass site! After spending some time here a while ago, I now checked up on my account and looked over the the critiques and discussions from the days of yore. And then it all came back to be, all the ass-kissing-2pt-"great color"-critiques I was so frustrated with back then. To make it short, it seems nothing has changed, and so I guess I won't be back to post pictures of my own after all.

------------------------

Born in '78, photography has interested me since I was very young (8 or so) and afters years of trying to steal my Dads SLR (Yashica 200AF), I finally bought my own in '94, the wonderful Canon EOS 50E. After not being able to take as many pictures as I would have liked, since analog photography is expensive, I used the chance when my Baby was stolen in France in 2004 and bought the Canon EOS350D in 2005. Since then I've had a steep learning curve: composition and exposure followed by post-shutter manipulation. Nowadays I shoot only RAW and find Adobe Lightroom, Corel Paint Shop Pro and XnView to be the software of choice. Come visit my website (streeck.com) even though I don't spend much time on it currently.

I hope to learn a lot here and pass on what I have learned already.

Critiques: I'm not here to collect points and I'm not here to hand out as many as possible.
- 0 points means: worth writing a critique to.
- 1 point means: good effort, nice picture, good shot.
- 2 points means: wow! Subject, composition and technique excellent.
I'm here to learn. So please be honest with your critiques. "Good POV, great framing, cool contrast, nice colors, clear sharpness. Cool: 2pts" doesn't help anybody. Find something to bitch about, no picture is perfect.

Abusing the "Film" field:
- JEPG: Shot in JPEG mode... hardly do that anymore...
- RAW-RS: Shot in RAW mode, used Raw Shooter to develop.
- RAW-LR: Shot in RAW mode, used LightRoom to develop.

BTW: What is it with this point-buddy system? Go wild and critique the work of someone you have never critiqued before!
