Wolfgang, can you show us more of your techniques you use. Like what are you using for your background to get the black behind the semp?
And what setting on your camera?
Your photos are beautiful.

Wolfgang, many of your photos with this kind of positioning is what I find most interesting when I browse thru your images. It's kind of like a side-top view?
