Intro: I am not a photographer, but I enjoy taking pictures. I like to travel, eventhough I do not always have luxury of time in doing so. However, every time I see beauty of nature, people, or things, I feel I should capture these beauties, not physically but the image, thru my 'electronic eyes' (that what I call my camera...)

I do not have a chance (yet!) to learn photography, but I will do so, not now, but hopefully in the future. In mean time, I know that I can learn from critique, comment, guidance, and discussion with friends in this websites.

Please do not hesitate to express your view, opinion, or whatever on my photos posted in TE and TL.

Additional note [after 3 months as TL members]: These are what I have learned:
[1] When taking picture, do not just focus on main object, but also need to view [or select] nice background for that main object;
[2] Never posting out-of-focus picture, because nobody [I mean nobody!] will like it;
[3] It is different story with colors, some like vivid colors but some like a 'more' natural colors [actually, it is not easy to define what is 'natural' colors, since every object can 'change' colors. Technically, colors are spectrum of light reflected by an object that can be perceived by human eyes or other sensor, including your camera, so it depends on your eyes and camera (+all accessories used);
[4] Aesthetic values and standards are basically universal, what works for other visual art will also be works for photography;
[5] Some see photography more as an artwork, but some others more see it as a docomentary tools; I am finding my self in between this two extremes;

And...finally, I find myself learning a lot from other TL members....
Thank a lot, guys!
