    Gem House

    Cool photo. You should try this with a ND filter and long exposure to really get some movement on those clouds. I used to have a better link to some examples. This is all I could come up with at the moment. Outstanding Images #7 – Severn Bridge, Wales How I Took It – A Photo Blog

    C & C on image and retouching

    I agree with making the background pure white. You can make the picture straight if you have CS4 and use the content-aware-scaling feature. It will take some time to get right but it is possible. You will have to use a mask to protect parts of the image when you are scaling as well.

    Chinese girl with traditional Chinese Dress

    Going from Digital to Film

    So I got the camera a week or so ago...I shot a roll of black and white film (Kodak BW400CN) the first day I got it. It was kind of funny actually. After I would take a shot I reflexively looked at the back of the camera expecting to see the frame I just snapped...I was also reluctant to take my...

    Bag Recommendations

    I'd go with a Crumpler. They look the coolest of all the camera bags I have seen, not to mention are built great and are comfortable to carry around. I have 2 of their bags and could not be happier. I plan on buying one of the backpack style bags soon. I have a Seven Million Dollar bag and a...
