I was lucky to meet 3 young men who were fishing at the lake. One of these guys positioned the net for me in the foreground. Very helpful!

    • Yes, I do, Dina. We run a holiday apartment in the Ammerland. One service is a guided tour (workshop) to visit all the special places in the Ammerland and the World Heritage Wadden Sea (Wattenmeer) and to talk about various aspects of photography. A few guests have already tried the “easy” version, because they were absolute beginners. I love to run these workshops because I was an IT consultant and I did a lot of training and education work. I am also planning to offer a workshop via Internet. But I am still working on this one. Liebe Grüsse. Reinhold

    • Thanks, Lena! In nearly all other samples I would follow your root. In this case a decided to leave the second one and the one I posted today in color. I think the tone is quite special. May be it is because I decided to avoid shooting into the sun (sunset). I tend to turn around and look at the reflections of the sunset at the opposite side. The color is lighter and softer. Smiles.
