7mm???!!! What sort of lens is that, and I don't think I want to know how much it cost :) Nice macro.

3 Jun 2009 1:31pm

@MontereyJohn: The camera is a point and shoot. I don't really know how the focal lengths translate. I often take it on hikes with my wife; it doesn't seem to hold things up as much as my DSLR.

Vachel from Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

nice framing and strong contrast...

I personally may not prefer vignette effects on the photographs but the way you always do it with very selective shots, it just always work with you.
