    All criticisms are welcomed. Those are my best photos. The rest are quite blurred and rather sub-standard.
    Yo.... Hmm... your shots arent bad mar!!=)

    Anyhow, one tip that a friend gave me is this - when shooting portraits, wildlife or otherwise, the impt thing is the glint in the eyes. i.e, the exposure can be great and the composition super tight, but if the eyes arent realtively shiny, then something is missing from the shot.=)

    Yep... Hope I'm not stating the obvious or else you will be like "cheh this kinda small thing also need to say". haha.=)

    Lets go shoot again soon!!

    Artistes (both in fine arts and ur manga artistes) aim for perfection in the eyes.

    Most of the time I'll fire as many shots as possible, trash those bad ones and select the best ones out. Unlike u guys, "1-shot-1-kill".

    Like what Alan Quartermain told Tom Sawyer in LXG, "Ah, Americans... They fire many bullets in hope that one will hit the target."

    That's juz the Tom Sawyer in me during photography...

    These 3wks dun think will be free. After the 12th next month shldn't have any problem
