Wanted to say Thank you for the kind words, That meant allot!
Roberto 12-Feb-2009 04:20
Great photos, wie immer! I think I like the darker (black) frame better around your beautiful photos, but maybe that is just me.
Guest 02-Jan-2009 13:51
Thanks for your comments Markus. It is called thursday challenge because they are part of entries for a challenge, under the forum pad section. Regards,

Your stained glass windows you posted on the Pbase forum are beautiful...tried to find the gallery that they were in. Like the biking shots...I used to cycle a lot, and did a cross country trip. Last major trip was from Washington down to the SF Bay Area.

Hi Markus
my name is grompe, (first name:Hans-Joachim, but all call me Achim)too. I found your Website and some picture from LEINEFELDE, the birthplace from your father? My Father and my grandparents come from Leinefelde too. I think we have the same roots. Some pictures from me and my Familie you can found on
(sorry for my bad english)

Markus, thank you for visiting my gallery.
I have watched your photos and I agree - you are an artist, I like your amazing work.
Treas02-Mar-2008 05:43
Markus, you are from the great state of Oregon! So am I. A beautiful state with lots of history, not to mention great photo opts. Have you been to Sunset Beach, near Charleston? Loved your winning shot.
Ted Chappell30-Jan-2008 01:55
Tena koe Marcus,
Thanks for the comment in my site. Heck, you have an amazing range of work in here, it will take me a long but fascinating time to roam thru them all. The few I have already seen are stunning.......The Pukeko for example......

I'm jealous of how good you are.

Hi Markus,

About the photo you commented in my B/W ARGENTIC gallery (here: it doesn' refer to Starwars but it's an underground vue: a lift platform coming down into a 100m depth shaft for a hydro-electric dam project (I was at the far bottom). The last one of the gallery comes too, from that project: a vue inside a (quasi-horizontal) tunnel when installing the shielding tubes (2.5m diameter). Memories,memories...

Thanks for having visited my gallery.

Guest 08-Mar-2007 07:04
I have great respect for your work.

Thanks Marcus on your reply.
Early morning now. I will if its ok with you reply more on your letter to me on how the
Catholic church preserved the bible.

PS Got great pics on your site. Like the one with the girl levitating by the creek.
Guest 21-Oct-2005 14:15
I think you have a few pictures in each gallery of real strength! However some pictures of lesser strength tend to pull down the overall quality of your galleries. I really enjoyed your experimentation with different techniques! young at heart, enjoy thou art!


Norbert Brückner 01-Oct-2005 13:16

Hello Markus !

Thanks for your kind words posted here ... you'll find an answer to your request there :)

Clear skies !

Peter Hollinger19-Jan-2005 03:00
Hi Markus -- Thanks for your comment on . I'll post the original if I ever find it!
Markus Grompe29-Dec-2004 18:10
Hi Ken,

regarding the color tones in web-images. I have found that the web-browser and the magnification make a difference. That is: if you look a the pictures in "original" magnification (there is a button beneath each pic), they look much better than at "large" or "medium". Similarly, the images look shitty in the AOL browser, best in Safari. So, it may not be what you are doing to the pictures before submitting them...

Ken Zaret29-Dec-2004 02:53
Hi Markus,

Thanks for your remarks. I am visiting my parents over the holidays and my mom is a docent at the Hirshhorn museum at the Smithsonian and I showed her your pallettes gallery and she really loved it. Finally have the time to set up a few galleries myself, though taking time to work out the tonal bugs despite sRGB. Thanks for the inspiration!

Roberto 17-Dec-2004 03:55
I'd love to visit a few of those Christkindlmarkts and stand around on a cold evening drinking Glühwein! (I am sooo partial to Bavaria.) Thanks for the wonderful holiday images.
familie Jansen 20-Nov-2004 17:32
Deine fhotogalerie ist super !
Ein berufsfotographer macht es nicht besser.
Viele gruse aus Belgiën.
Zhongya Wang 05-Nov-2004 05:34
I'm very happy to get your response!Thanks a lot! Markus! You are always distinguished in every field you dipped!
Hope we can enjoy more beutiful pictures here!:))
PooBah 02-Nov-2004 17:26
I'd bet that you would never had taken these pallette pictures with a film camera! VIVA digitals!! Ted
Markus Grompe01-Nov-2004 21:42
Thanks for the note. Ferry Falls can be seen on the Eagle Creek Hike, on the upper part of the walk (about 4 miles from the trail head). Its across the canyon, so it is hard to get close to. I took that picture with a telefoto lens.


Zhongya Wang 30-Oct-2004 19:17
Great work,especially the chamaleon picture and pacific_nw gallery!
Could you tell where is the ferry falls? It seems attractive! I wanna to enjoy that!
Thanks a lot!
Roberto 27-Oct-2004 17:49
I enjoyed your pictures and Markusian titles. Those "cute" fuzzy cacti can be deceiving...Aubrey touched one and played with its barbed needle until she had about nine in her fingers. Here I was trying to show her the beauty of the desert, but she got a little too close. I'll show her your pictures and gauge her reaction...I'm sure she'll smile.
Brien 20-Oct-2004 19:42
Markus, your pictures are awsome!! Thanks for sharing.

Cecile 05-Sep-2004 19:43
Hallo Markus

Nein, wie schön, wie gut, wie toll, wir sind alle stolz auf unseren zweiten Künstler in der Familie. Das Landis Treffen war ein toller Erfolg mit Speis und Trank (Clos Landis aus dem Bordeaux, Sauguter Saft) und einem kühlen Bad im Zugersee. Wir hoffen, dass Ihr das nächste Mal dabei sein und sehen könnt, was unsere Vorfahren für tolle Gebäude, die heute noch wie eine eins stehen, gebaut haben.

Gruss Cecile und Ines und Remo und Kids und Nonno und Katzen und und und und und wir spinnen doch alle!!!! ein wenig oder (noch) nicht ! ?
Guest 04-Sep-2004 00:50
Great Photos Marcus! The scenery ones are beautiful but, like my mom, I love to see the people pictures. It's nice to see what you've all been up to since we don't get to meet up in person too often. Keep sending the updates, they're fun to get. Love, Adele
PooBah 03-Sep-2004 19:58
The pooBah likes the pic of you and your brother with Kalama Daddys in today's new gallery!
Guest 01-Sep-2004 22:19
The artist in you is really showing! I like the explorations of the mundane (all macro shots and the dishwater series). Sehr gut gemacht!
Jutta 31-Aug-2004 06:33
Hi Markus,
Deine Bilder im Fotokalender, die bei Beate und Claude im Flur hängen, haben mir schon immer gut gefallen! Und nun die Galerie- spitze! Besonders die NZ Bilder.
Weiter so! Viele Grüße aus Heppenheim von Jutta
Caroline 28-Aug-2004 20:27
Good stuff. Makes me want to haul out my camera and (try to...) give you some competition. Caroline
Ralph 25-Aug-2004 21:22
Hello Markus, very facinating pictures. It's always good to have a second profesion.
Hopefully this second message will be accepted better than the first one. It had been tild from the internet.
Regards Ralph
Arnie 24-Aug-2004 04:51
Great photos Markus. I agree with Steff, the NZ photos are the best so far.
Mary Jo Levy 21-Aug-2004 23:19
Hi Markus, I checked out all the photos & only saw ONE with a person--the nice photo of upside down Maria. Like Aunt Jean, I like the people ones! Where did you see the Cheetah? Mary Jo
Len Levy 18-Aug-2004 16:59
Wow, great pictures. Please add more. I may never get to these places, so it's fun to take a break at work, look at some pictures, and daydream. Thanks, Len Levy
Steff 17-Aug-2004 14:06
Awesome, dad! It's really great to have a place to go to see some of your best photos. Those NZ ones are particularly beautiful. Love, Steff
