    ok. sorry, the shots suck. no tripod. ISO cranked up all the way to 1600 and this is still the best pics of the bunch. but it was fun being there and watching the ceremony:

    this is the screen we watched from (so TINY! lol)

    small flag and big flag (my friend took this shot) technically sucks, but i still thought it was funny... (and yes, that's me, in the sweaty shirt and with the idiot's smile... lol)

    no i havent. i am only slowly getting into the processing part at this point...
    i used PS to sharpen some of them a bit, which of course increased the effect of the noise in some places...
    are those free download software or do i need to buy them? if yes, i might have trouble getting it here...

    I mainly use neatimage, which comes in a standard and a pro version if i remember right. you can download it and try it. but to unlock all features you have to buy a license I guess. the license can be purchased online as well. just google for neatimage. it should not be a censored site in China ;)

    That must have been quite the experience, to watch the Opening with so many others. Could you see the fireworks live?

    thanks alex. i'll try it out i guess. problem is, i dont have any means of paying online. but who know's i might also have a look around at the local computer(/software) market. :)
    antarctican, no i didnt get to see the fireworks live. i was so bummed out too, cause originally i was gonna borrow my BF's tripod and tri to find a place somewhere in the vicinity of the stadium to catch some of those fireworks. but i was kinda sick and dizzy so i didnt wanna risk getting stuck out there in the heat, with all the roadblocks and all. so instead i went to this stadium which is just across the street from my house... :)
