    Even though I'm still in love with your assistant Dannie, I dislike the reflection of the water in her face in the second picture. It's just pulling my eyes to the overly bright spot there all the time, I can't do anything about it.

    After one of my friends deleted his Flickr account and now uses 500px I checked the pictures there a bit. Some of them are ridiculously good but somehow it feels like half of the site's members are Russian!?

    LoL trini, yeah they do though.

    500 px seems like it's a step up from flickr. Yeah there are a lot of russians on there for some reason. Maybe it was originally a russian site?

    Nice one, Szeph.

    Trini: you have a good eye for colours and textures.

    A few from a recent trip to South America. The first is from the Bolivian Salt Flats, the second is from the top of Pasachoa outside of Quito, Ecuador. The hike to the top was about 4 hours and the altitude was 4100m. Great views.

    There are more photos of travels on my flickr if you are interested.

    The second one is stunning. You rarely see a HDR that well done. By what margin did you do the exposure bracket?

    Toronto-based company actually.



    Cheers, C. I actually find that my interest in clothing helps to inform my eye re: colours and textures

    Great stuff lately. As said earlier, I just got an external flash and am playing around with it - some projects turn out pretty well, others not so. This particular one turned out pretty good I think.

    TO Tie Guy: what's that in the middle of the Salar Lake (first pic)? My eyes keep going to that thing, was that intentional? The second pic is phenomenal: easily one of the best HDRs I've seen in a while.

    Crane's: I like the first one, but can't quite figure out where the strobe was: top and front?

    il ciclista: +1, I've got my dad's old Pentax here and the it's awesome.

    No flash on that shot. Ambient light only.

    500 Poses for Photographing Women by M Perkins.

    While you/re at it get a book on artistic composition with an emphasis on the human form. Then get a book on portraiture. After that burn up your shutter with practice shots.

    Thanks Crane! i have to take some mug shots this week and some soccer shots next week. I'm not so much worried about the profile shots as the soccer ones..longest lens I have is 28-70..never planned on doing sports stuff.

    brian, great photo. Nice colors!
