2008PHOTOBLOGSAWARDS, vote for cuchulainn!!
click on the coolphotoblog link and give me some coolpoints!! every week is a new week, don't forget!! thanks!!!

taken in spain during a week vacation, a diferent use for the canon 100-400, i like the tiny houses, you can see the church and the graveyard quite clearly, its not a tilt shift tecnique, the image is straight out of the camera with some adjustments on contrast, saturation and sharpness. tilt shift is a technique used to create the ilusion of a fake maquette, its very cool, look it up on flickr or google to see some examples of what i'm saying.

i was listening to a story the other day that made me wonder, a photographer was showing his portfolio to a friend and they were at a restaurant having dinner, when the owner of the restaurant saw his work he said,
"that was really beautiful pictures you must have a great camera"
that made him quite mad and furious, when they finished having dinner he walk right to the restaurant owner and he said:
"the dinner was perfect!, absolutly delicious!, you must have great pots and pans",
i find this to be quite true, what it matters is your soul and your vision, aminus is a great comunity and i love being part of it, the camera, the lenses, brands, technics, it doesn't matter, your vision is important, the rest are just tools.

my selection for the month
don smith (us), don smith a fulltime professional landscape and sports photographer, (i can tell you that is impossible to do here in portugal unless you want to starve to death), anyway, he has a unique style of photography, iconic places photographed with his interpretation such as the grand canyon, a pro bringing together light, color, and a vision of the wonders of the world, e uses agressive tones and soft processing, check him out.
