    by Wisconsinart | 10th of September, 2011

  • not very similar in their similarity?!

    by Icefields | 22nd of March, 2011

    Just my two cents in the whole similarity discussion: not a proposal, just a reflection about it and some possible practical ways out of it. It's just that lately I noticed 2 batches of similar images can be very different regarding their similarity ;-) The hardest thing... More

    by Jdanne | 1st of December, 2010

    This photo below is quite experimental and symbolizes the current financial crisis in the Euro zone. Especially difficult was the light. I mounted my LED torch on a separate tripod to the right of the coin - so that only the burner at the left and the border and backside... More
