    Hello,

    my name is Holger, I am 24 years old/young and live in Hamburg, Germany. I got myself a Nikon D50 at the end of last november and just love it.
    So this is my first post after two months of just looking around. I have to say, this is one of the friendliest forums i have ever been to.

    I think a small mixed selection of pictures would be a good start to introduce myself.

    1. Hamburg airport (I kinda like this one alot)

    2. Hamburg airport

    3. Hamburg Speicherstadt (the sky is a bit overexposed and the bus on the Birdge is bugging me)
    [​IMG]

    4. Hamburg city park (when i first looked at this picture i had immediatly this old vintage/retro feeling and thought it needs some grain and a touch of sepia)

    6. Hamburg city park (there was this guy flying around with a paraglider down a "very" small hill)

    All these shots have great points, but I like 2 and 6 the most, the guys expression is cool and you gotta love an aviation shot! I also really like 7 but I think I might have liked a little bit more context in the shot, as without 6 I might not have completely understood.

    Great introduction to the forum and I look forward to seeing more!!

    I've taken another trip into Hamburg on Friday... grey day! But some pics will be up soon.

    Edit: Just one more thread that I found

    Then I stopped posting Hamburg-pics, though I still have all the "Reflections" in store somewhere from that excursion.
    The weather was soooooo nice in those days.
    My yesterday's pics are sooooo grey in comparison :roll:

    Thank you all so much for your comments and welcomes.
    I am realy eager to learn more about photography and I am so happy I found this place with people as eaqually ambitious as myself.

    @LaFoto: These are such wonderful pictures of Hamburg. I particularly like the shots of the Köhlbrand-Brücke. I always have my camera with me, looking for nice spots and I know there are so many I didn't even find yet. I hope the weather will stay good for the next couple days

    So, more pictures will come.

    Welcome to the board, hoagster!

    Must love that D50, eh? ;)
    All your pictures is good ones, and the vintage-football thing is great! I love that place "Hamburg Speicherstadt". Hope you have the opportunity to return there and avoid the overexposed sky (and the bus ;)).

    Anyway, enjoy! :)
