black & white previews
All colour images are also available as black & white prints. The b&w previews offered here are produced by simply desaturating the image via Javascript. The result is a neutral b&w preview which may appear flat or too dark/bright. Before printing, however, each image is individually assessed and adjusted for best contrast, tonal quality, and dynamic range.

White pigeons taking off from a roof on the Wartburg Castle
Built in 1067, the Wartburg is famous because Martin Luther used it as a retreat in 1521. During his stay, he produced the first version of the bible which could be understood by the common people by translating the New Testament FROM Greek (a language only understood by clergy at the time) to German. He also drafted a paper with reforms of the church system initiating the Reformation movement.
