About me:

Before retiring, I was an independent developer of Database Management System Software (IMS and DB2) for the IBM Mainframes (but I have no special knoweldge of PC or PC Software).

Unfortunately, I am not a great photographer. But I nevertheless enjoy taking landscape photos and spending time with my photos. My main camera was a Nikon D5000 that I love and I is now a D5500. I use a Nikkor 18-200mm Zoom lense. When I do not want to carry the relatively heavy combination of my DSLR and Zoom lense, I use my beloved Google Pixel 3 XL handy to take photos. My main Photo-related Software is Photoshop Elements with the great "Viveza" and the great "Color Efex Pro" plugins/filters from NIK-Software/Google.

...And I love the great dpreview Website.
