Bettina + Uwe's Top 10 Photos of 2006


(B&U Steinmueller,


Hard to believe but yet again a year is gone. Hardly know what we have done this year. But then looking back at some of our images we feel quite well with the photographic work in 2006.

What are the key areas we explored in 2006?

  • Dunes portfolio got extended
  • Some new IR photos
  • Oak trees from our local area make great subjects
  • Finaly we got more happy with our B&W work
  • Our Alcatraz photos show that combining multiple images can create fine results

Selecting the top 10 photos is challenging. We have definitely shot more nice photos in 2006 but these ten photos kind of represent our work in 2006.


Dunes will be one of our main portfolio subjects also for 2007. There is so much to explore.

Pismo Beach Pier

We love Piers and the Pismo Beach Pier is so much fun to photograph.

Oak Trees

We love the shape of California oak trees. Here a storm provided the perfect backdrop.

IR Photos

We like IR photography but have still to improve on our technique. Here are some nice results.

This photographic session was great fun. The following 2 photos were combined from 3 exposures in Photomatix.

Alcatraz (Canon 1Ds Mk. II)

We only show one B&W photo here but got quite a few more nice photos in B&W in 2006.

Exploring the Leica M8

In 2006 we started to use the Leica M8 rangefinder camera. This will likely lead to new ways to explore all kinds of places.

Last minute bonus photo

We could not resist to add an extra photo we took just before Xmas.

We sell prints of these photos (print 15x10" ond 13x19" paper). You can order here.



We often work still on older images from the last 2-4 years (about 30K RAW files) and manage to create new portfolio prints.
