Nice one Who, will have to call the city to get that drain fixed!

Hello Who, I have just checked out the pictures you were taking a year ago. You have learned so much about photography.

I am looking forward to see what you are coming up in the future...

I am sure it will be magical!

Keep up the good work, this is very nice!

Worapong - Nopes. No tripod. I was sober so I trusted the pavement would stay still.

Live View is good chicken, JT. :)

Seriously, Suzi? I can go to 30 x 20 (maybe 36 x 24) inches with this one. Send me a "Misplaced? Suggest new location" if you're interested.

Yeah, Gabe. I only started taking photos when I first came here. I was astonished by the mountains to the north and took pictures with my phone and was disappointed with the results, so I bought a D60. And then a D300. And then a D3S. :( The wallet isn't enjoying the experience as much as I am.

Superb reflections and photo. I am glad you was sober ;)

Best of

Hello Whoelius,

I think, this only a little rain puddle was this one you have used for this terrific photo. BO

Best regards, Dieter

Pure magic, whoelius. This gives meaning to the term "photo realism"
