This is a picture from Northeast India in the state of Manipur, not too far from Myanmar.


While I was in East Asia doing some linguistic consulting work, I got a good shot of one of my consultees soliciting phrases from an unwritten tribal dialect in a small village.


Here's a picture of La Cola de Caballo in North Central Mexico (where I am now).

Photo 1 taken by me sometime around 1998. Taken on negative film then scanned in Minolta film scanner later.

Photo 2 was taken by a professional photographer, I later found on the net. Her name was different. The photo you see here is the most modest photo in the series.

Same here. It can also be argued that I'm not a very good amateur either!

Haven't updated it in a long time and have plenty more to add: http://www.naputi.com/gallery_ph.html

Ok, we should have a rule... no photos that have the effects added in from photoshop. I think I'm more interested in the photos where people just took the shot and let things stand as they were, not the photoshopped ones. Photoshop can turn any mediocre shot into a really good one.

Ok, I got shots.

A photo thread! I should visit Foo more often.

This one is my favorite. It's not the picture I like that much but the memories. It's when I found this nest that I really got into photography. I spent 5 to 8 hours a day for 5 days in a blind watching this osprey family. It was great watching the day-to-day routine instead of going to a popular bird spot and grab a few "easy" snaps. I felt like a National Geographic photographer on assignment. And all the osprey nest shots I've found are taken from below the nest with the sky as the background. Mine's unique.



A few more I like:



Err....perhaps I should stop for now.

Photoshopped like this?

This is more like photo editing and part of the process. Images come right out of the box are not final products. It's not cheating.

And note the size of the file. You are wasting a lot of band width, koffee. You can post much bigger photos(in dimension) within 100kb limit.

Yeah, but Photoshop has become such an integral part of photography now. Brooks Institute here doesn't even teach film and developing anymore, everything's digital! While Photoshop can clean up some minor exposure and color-correction problems, but you still gotta be able to aim the camera, compose the shot and snap it at just the right time. You mean we can't take a perfectly fine picture like this:



and do THIS to it?

Excellent shot. High contrast scene gives it a very theatrical look.

Here are a select few I have at my website already.

Pics from Busch Gardens (Tampa, FL)





A bit overexposed, but I love the effect it created.
