" If Mohammed will not go to the mountain, the mountain must come to Mohammed. "

Which means , if someone will not come to you, you have to go to them :XD:

And the same for the inspirations , when you don't have any inspirations , why not go looking for it ???

For instance , if a gay man want to find a perfect soul-mate , I can guarantee that he cannot find any when all he do is go to places full of women :lol:

For that , inspirations is a chance , an opportunity , but this opportunity can be created on your own , and through our non-stop searching for it , it may become much easier to become real ^^

A photographer carry a camera to the park , he saw the cute kids playing near by , inspiration came , he "click" and take the picture to the exhibit and won the 1st price .

Another photographer , woke up in the morning and felt want to go take some picture of a kid . So he bring his equipment to the poor neighborhood and work all day there , then chose one picture of a kid to the exhibit and also won the first price .

The same result , they all have beautiful pictures and won 1st price. But what's the different ???

You certainly feel that the first photographer's inspiration came faster and easier , he just click and get the result . The problem is , is this inspiration ALWAYS COME THAT QUICK ??? While the other photographer, can stand more chance to succeed . Because a hunter who don't go hunt , can also grab an already dead rabbit , but certainly , cannot compare to a hunter who go hunt for some food , even can be so exhausted , but he can assure that he will have something to eat :giggle:

And again , inspiration is something that you must EARN to get , don't sit there and wait for it , go GRAB it :XD:


I think I will try to write shorter next time , I don't think many people will like to read something so long like this ^^;

Inspired by PIXAR's "The Lamp" symbol :XD: I heard that they were inspired by the lamp so they make it their symbol , and the lamp, need a light-bulb :lol:

My Light-bulb just went out of service so I think I must do something with it before waste it away :XD: SO I take everything inside out , put the flower inside and put some clay to keep the flower steady :giggle:

Nikon D70 + 18-55mm VR Nikkor + Manual Focus :XD: I think I set the ISO 400 or something because it's a little bit grainy ^^; Increased in light and contrast only , the yellow color had already come from the camera " Shade " balance :XD: Added some blue layer for softer look ^^ .

Thank you for viewing and Reading ;) :hug:

P/s : I hope that you will read everything I wrote ;)

First off, I just want to point out that this photo caught my attention AS A THUMBNAIL. I adore the "vinatge-like" feel of it, and the adorable way in which it was framed. The detail in the mans fingers as well as how clearly the blurred background shows what's going on are all great in my eyes. The yellow contrasts so well with the duller teals and off-white of the photo, and therefore the flower stands out as a beautiful focus. The shot was framed well, and I would definately see this somewhere and love for it to be hanging on one of my childrens walls. I love it! Probably the best photo I have critiqued thus far.

I really love it, what a pretty shot :D

Is it okay if I use it for a small school project of mine? I have to do a trailer thing for a book. Of course I'd credit you.

few days back, i was so blank. i couldn't find a concept for taking a picture and also naming them. so i suddenly thought of doing something by making my nothingness-inside-head as a concept. i can relate myself so much with your this particular deviation. its a wonderful picture.

here goes mine....

hope you like it :)
