Still remember me?
Well, I've been absent from TE for several months already and I will be absent for the next two months to come. I've got a very tigt schedule of photography assignment and there's no room for me to relax my mind for some posting in TE.
The perspective feeling of the peak is very good, having like I am there too, enjoying the spectacular view and breathing those cool mountain air.
Just a nice shot for a week, Paul.
Cheers and good day.
This month, it's the Hungry Ghost festival, a very big and large festival practised by Chinese throughout out country. And it's also a good apportunity for shutterbugs to release their shutters on capturing those cool and eeiry moment of festivity.
Okay, the first critics since my absent.
A refreshing one. Been waiting for such image to relax my mind of those hectic schedule.

I noticed that you are using a Tamron 90mm macro lens to capture this beautiful evening scenery of the Butterowrth Ferry Terminal. Whay is it? Probably forget to get your standard lens!
Yeah, I do like this photo, but I found the red is a little over-saturated, which caused the whole picture seem to be bleeding.
The text is very well presented, and moreover, you have brought back memories of the accident, which I remembered, that two grand festival was carried out during the evening, the St Anne festival on the mainland and the once in 60 years float procession on the island.
But you still got the best shot using the macro lens.
Cheers and have a nice day.
Hey, the St Anne festival is back again this coming Saturday. So, will you be there for the shoot?

Great shot, Alek.

Well, now I know the technique to capturing fireworks at its BEST. Thanks.
A well executed exposure that gives the fireworks such sharpness and the position of it is very artistically arranged.
Simply beautiful and awesome display of fireworks and shot.
Cheers and good day, Nikos.

I really like you way of composing this shot, and many of your tulip images as well.
With putting the tulips real close to the lens and making the rest of it as a background is artistically composed.
So, how low did you went on capturing this angle?
Cheers and good day, Paul.

Religious sermon at Wat Suthat by Angshu (56180)

This is the kind of shot that I love. And this is the kind of shot that mark my trademark. A very well captured shot with great atmospheric and dramatised colors.
Yeah, it really do justice in this image.
And cool technique, too, which lights been fired, sustaining the originality of its color and at the same time, of not interfering the on-going prayers.
But I found the lines of wires or string across the hall a little distracting. So, Ang, what it is?
Cheers and happy shooting

Interest shot with interesting angle.
But I found the image is a little blur.
from the exposure value, it is consider okayed, if you were to retain the sunset with its reflection onto the sea. Probably a shaky hand resulted the blurness, huh!
Everything is composed perfectly, Wes, except for the blurness.
Cheers and good day, Wes.

Thanks for calling the other day. Sure the conversation is a long one but you needed to go for lunch. Actually I'm in my car and is making my to lunch too. Unfortunately we can't have lunch together, huh!
Another cool shot for the contest, huh. The fish seem to be a little sleepy, after a day of hard work of displaying.
Maybe a little of saturation and a little of contrast will bring the fish to a more "lively" look.
Cheers and happy shooting.
Portraits from Himachal - V by sabyasachi1212 (19773)

Another beautifully captured portrait that uses natural lights. Impressive technique.
But unfortunately the eyes of the old lady is pretty dark and that loses the warm and dramas from her facial impression.
The nose piece is cool, adding some sort of display in this portrait shot.
A very well taken shot with good technical work.
