Getting thru the screening process at 1x.com is rather, well, let's say "tedious". While there are some truly great images to be found there, I find the criterias for passing the screeners/members are weighted to heavy on technical issues as opposed to the general and emotional impression to the viewer. Also, a big number of nature and wildlife images are either composites or rely to much on photoshop to achieve impact. Why do I bother? I guess it does provide exposure to my images and in the end that is what I seek.

Well, there it is, a new blog. I am currently working on the soon to be published website of over 1000 of my images at www.naturalsynergy.ch. The site is programmed by myself in Flex and I am currently occupied with the big task of scanning the images and writing the captions. Having had the opportunity and fortune to spend many hours, days, weeks and months out in the field all over the world I would like to share with you my thoughts on wildlife and nature photography.
