    New here saying hello!

    dear all,

    I have been lurking here for some time now. Time to introduce myself!

    I am Wim van Velzen, 36 years of age and living in the Netherlands. I have been working as a parttime professional photographer, but nowadays it is mainly for hobby.

    My passion is in landscape photography, with a deep love for Scotland. Youīll find far too much Scotland pictures on my site: fotografie Wim vanVelzen, including some new ones from this yearīs harvest.

    I have been working with MF cameras since 1997 (Bronica EC) and Rollei 6008i since 2002. The big leap to digital was three years ago - I am using a 22MP Hasselblad back. Nothing cutting edge, but very nice!

    I learn a lot here and hope to be of some help if the chance occurs!

    You are actually quite famous. I also remember your pioneering Rollei digital back write-up. Nice to see you here!

    Hi Wim,

    I'm sort of new here too, this is a pretty good forum, nice bunch of people.

    I think we've said hello at the other forum already. Be well.

    Kind regards,

    Welcome and have fun.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Thank you all! I have never seen myself as quite famous, but nice to hear :-) The larger the sensor, the smaller the community, isnīt it...

    Helping out with my English texts!

    BTW, I posted some more portfolios, this time the Caithness area full of lovely views to Orkney, rough seas and gorgeous cliffs.



    In another thread, Shelby Lewis thought my images were a bit oversatured. What do you lot think?

    First off, I love your images and I share your passion for the Scottish country side. On the saturation, I agree that on some of them you have been a bit too generous with the saturation slider. It make them look a bit too processed I think and that's a pitty because they are really beautiful in all other aspects and capture Scotland very well.

    Ede, talk about close! Veenendaal here, welcome to the forum. I remember reading some articles on your website a while ago, very informative MF stories!

    hi Ced, al the recent (since 2007 actually) portfolios on my website are made with the 22mp back. You can best look here.

    Ha Mathijs, I live in Veenendaal too (Hunze) and work in Ede. A small world, isnīt it?

    A very small world indeed! Or just a very small country, the one we live in.
