    This is my very first post in this forum. I want to share my work here and hopefully get some feedback and constructive criticism. In brief, I have been into photography for one year now and still learning as I go along.

    Anyway, I am sharing these pictures....

    I was expecting to shoot landscape and houses but was not expecting to shoot a lot of children, and I mean a lot of children. I was very overwhelmed. This is my first time to go to Baseco Manila and I can't describe how I feel when I saw these people living under these conditions.

    I was lucky enough to capture them smiling but as I got home, I cannot help but wonder if these people will have other things to really smile about someday.

    If we have to go back to that place, I'll be there definitely to shoot another batch.

    I agree with Holly¬Ö These are very emotional images.

    Those of us born and raised in affluent countries have no idea about what it is like to live in the third world. Images such as these certainly help in this understanding.

    I grew up in the philippines and these photos are a poignant reminder of what I left behind. These are beautiful shots. It's amazing how you were able to find beauty even in poverty. I just wish something could be done for these children
