@ sales of pork goes down due to wrong term

As announced today, swine flu is now named as Mexican swine flu. The term swine flu is creating fear in people, the sales margin of pork goes down so much that the world health organization have to change the term from swine flu to Mexican Swine Flu in hope to increase the sales margin of pork. Let's hope that this epidemic will end soon!

~ Aries the dog

This is my little Aries. She have been with us for 10 years, and still as playful and active as before. This photo of her is taken with my new hand-made flash diffuser, as the flash is not harsh on the subject my hand-made flash diffuser is a success. Yeah!

~ rainbow in the sea

How many of seen rainbow in the open sea ? Sharing one of the photo that I've taken at Marina South Pier then post processed with Adobe PhotoShop CS4 Extended. If you would like to know how you can create nice rainbow effect using Adobe PhotoShop you can visit this site. While this photo is taken with canon EF-S 75-300mm lens, at 130mm the image quality will not be excellent. Nevertheless, I think that with the rainbow effect added to the photo it bring out a warm feeling.

~ grass ? wheat ?

Description of photo So what is this, a grass or a wheat ? Or is it a wheat grass ? Taken this photo at Marina South Pier. If i have my 50mm f1.8 lens with me, bokeh of this photo will be perfect. I will find another chance to visit Marina South Pier to retake this photo with the 50mm f1.8 lens. Camera Settings Shutter Speed: 1/197sec Lens Aperture: F/5.7 Focal Length: 55mm Exposure Time: 1/200sec ISO: 100 Exposure Compensation: 0 step

~ hold that falling water

Description of image Alright, halt! don't let that water droplet falls. A nice photo of water droplet Self-Reflection & Conclusion After trying out to shoot water droplet falling and freeze it in the air, I came to a conclusion; that it is not easy to estimate the time from the water droplet falls and then a click at my remote shutter. This particular photo is being filtered from the 50 shots that I've took. Camera Settings Model: Canon EOS 1000D Shutter Speed: 1/197 second F Number: F/5.6 Focal Length: 55 mm ISO Speed: 100

~ reflection of a compact disc

Description of photo A reflection of a compact disc with the help of a table lamp to bring out the nice rainbow effect. It's also one of my favorite shots taken so far. Reflections and learning curves A shot like the above is quite easy. All you need is to take at different angles to then filter out those that don't look great. I don't recommend using a tripod when taking shots that need to test out the angles. If your hand is not stable enough to hold the camera, then get a chair or table to support. Camera Settings Shutter Speed: 1/166 second F Number: F/5.6 Focal Length: 55 mm ISO Speed: 400 Close-up Filter: +8
