Can I ask what kind of camera do you use? You have wonderful pictures!

Greetings from Hungary! Yumi

Dear Zsilvike, the photos you see are taken by me and my wife mostly with Nikon FM2 (30 years old film camera) and F90 (15 years old film camera ). Only very rcently I switched to digital and the Algeria shots are taken with a Nikon D80. Photography is one of our main hobbies (maybe the second after traveling...). Thank you very much Marco

I absolutly love your images. I'm a complete beginner playing around and discovering things with a Nikon D70s, and seing your results make me want to learn and travel more. Looking at your images I get the impression that the one taken with films have richer colours that the one from the Algeria series taken with a digital. Is it accidental or film has that advantage?

Cheers, Paul - Paris

Thanks a lot Paul ! As to the images, actually the films had to pass trough a poor scanner which sometimes exagerates the contrast. In any case, the light is different in different places and seasons around the world and this is also making the difference. By the way, if one has to learn, well, digital is certainly helping a lot... ( at least your pocket !). You have to consider that you see only a few hundreds pics chosen among many thousands and let me add that as a "beginner" you are taking nice pictures. Ciao marco
