I was born in 1982 and live in Berlin.
I am working in a permanent employee relationship and in the context of a small business as a photographer.

I´m taking photos since 2006, and experimenting since 2008 with emotion-enhancing image processing. The streets of Berlin are my favorite scenes. I see the everyday and give it a stage. With color effects and textures I increase the depth of a simple image.

    Absolutely stunning shot Jay!
    I took this over 20 years ago from the same spot… almost identical view, just that I aimed a bit lower to get less sky… and probably later at night (nearly 11 PM) as there are more lights on in yours.
    But what blew me away was that there are two new skyscrapers in your take which I didn`t even realize were built in the meantime. Just shows what being away from the US for nearly 50 years does to your NYC awareness :-)
    Just thought you might be interested in the comparison.
    Definite fave !!
