Reminiscence

Nostalgia.

Historicity.

Companionship.

Timelessness.

And a place to soak in the pleasure of quiet contemplation.

The other side of Kuala Lumpur that we may have overlooked nevertheless, has never lost touch of its splendour, majesty and rich historical significance.

Dear Chris, in photo taking, there are at least 2 variables.
1) Camera
2) Photographer
Have you given thought about the 2nd variable? Haha...

Perhaps with the few amateur-ish tips I have given you, you would fare better this time.:)

I would personally feel it is the setting and the light that does the trick.

Photographer? Nah, anyone can do it -lah..haha.

As a newbie, I say good job. As advice to an interested photographer, I say it could be a whole lot better.

Hi Yennie,

Wow! Wise one? Say, have you ever seen any of my photography (I used to be a professional photographer 8 years ago, then I left the profession for IT), check it out at:

Anyway, when steven comes back, he will bring you over to take pictures of little Christian, ok?

Yennie,

I looked at your flickr.com pictures, and I think you have the eye of a photojournalist, but you have not mastered the art of composition yet. There are ways to learn this, but some people have a natural born talent for it. Others like me, have to train by looking at the work of pros and analysing how they got it right.

Some of your pics are good, like:
1. Rapunzel's Tower
2. Christ
3. Pigeon holes
4. 3's a company
5. Technicolor
6. Peekaboo!
7. Morning flight

See if you can figure out why I selected these.

Leon, you are mad! :)

But thanks for highlighting what I didn't know I have done or have not done.

Art of composition??- wow, you got me here. Hehe. Thanks for the expert's analyst.
Definitely would look out for the book "Professional Photography for Dummies" the next time I hit Kinokuniya. :)

Cheers!
