I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

Dave this is great! It looks as though the boat is sitting on a sheet of glass! Very nice photo!


Love the effects. Another great one.


I absolutely love reflection pictures.


Great image by itself but your enhancements have really made it a nice work of art. Great job as always Dave.

The colors are so vibrant and the reflection beyond compare. The contrasts in colors bring it to life.

It really does look like the boat is sitting on a mirror! If not for the buoy in background for scale, I'd think it was a model or a toy. Well done!


Love the vibrance and the contrast with the blue and yellow. The reflection is pretty nice too.


That water is the most gorgeous shade of blue!!!


This was my favorite of the many that I looked at. May I use it for my desktop picture for awhile?
