Thank you :) Tricky shooting with the sun in my face because of all the harsh contrasts it creates, but it's also a good opportunity to test my limits and HDR processing

Gracias Eve! I started noticing this effect on my own photos in 2011 but couldn't quite figure out how it happened. Used a polarizer for this one particular, but I think it has more to do with the aperture value you use in camera.

And setting the exposure compensation can do it too I think?

Thanks Virna, this certainly was a trip to remember :) Wish I could have stayed longer than a week to see more places, but after testing the public transit for a day, I'm so glad in retrospect that I rented a car because I got around a lot faster. Can't complain about the lovely weather either!

Very often mind-numbing & eye-straining working on the computer for long periods of time, but a simple smile resulting from a nice compliment like yours uplift my spirits :)

:) You must travel to a lot of places!
I'm still a kid so I'm stationary ^^
I quite like macro photography because I can't get proportion in landscape ha!
I also just started editing photos. I would like to continue this as a hobby and am asking my parents for a tablet ^^.
If you ever need happiness just ask!

Here and there, not quite as often as you might think. My last big trip before this was a couple years earlier, but when I'm away I try to squeeze in every last picture I can =D Then I'm so busy with those pictures I barely ever visit my own surroundings lol 

Macro photography can be fun, I did a lot of that starting out because I could set it up indoors without showing everyone else how clumsy I was =p Sometimes the most random angles can yield the most interesting photos. If you ever consider taking it up, I would recommend in some cases trying to fill your camera frame with the subject and not worry about capturing the whole object and all its edges. Through positive & negative spaces, it invites the audience to fill in the blanks as to what can be outside the photo, which can lend another layer of intrigue to macros.
