Just bought another battery... with 3 batteries I should hopefully last throughout the long days here..

what was the purpose, if i may question, of the trip? While the photos are nice and colorful, they seem to be nothing more than touristy photos that one could easily get from post cards and stock photos. Nothing particularly brilliant or outstanding really... i am really baffled about what will be shown in the exhibition, if this is indeed a taster of things to come...hmmm :)

i think everything that can be shot can be taken easily from post cards and stock photos.. so maybe we should all give up photography together?

dude it's a blog of where we've went and wat we've done, and some pictures to show our progress there. it's not an online photo exhibition.

anyway it's up to u if u what u wanna make outta it.

Mate, i appreciate that it is a blog of a journey of friends. What i don't understand is how one gets away with exhibiting post cards at the history museum? Contrary to what you say, what lots of stuff can indeed be found in post cards and stock photos, i've still managed to seen exhibits of photos that somehow don't fit into that category. I don't question the value of your trip, for surely you must have learned something from it, but i think that u missed a lot about europe and its culture and that you have only managed to dwell into the surface layer. Surely there is no need to exhibit photos that can be googled up online in a million and one photobuckets, photoblogs, etc. I'm sure it was not your decision to exhibit, but having been invited to do so, should you not have strived to do something different? Maybe its just me, i would have. Your posts so far show technical competency but the composition and shots are what any TDH can do with a decent compact camera. When i saw the list of photographers going, i guess i just expected more..:(

ok mr pro photog who thinks i'm unworthy of getting into a photo exhibition with my puny sub-normal pictures that totally doesnt reflect the true cultures and life of europe, i'm sorry for having posted here and made you think that i'm damn great and thus you expected a lot and then having seen the blog be disappointed.

btw i'm so dumb i dunno wat's TDH..
