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.

Very fitting title ;-) The colors are almost unreal. But I like it.

Absolutely gorgeous. Love the color and glow.


A wonderful picture. Looks like a painting. Quite a few of your photos do :)

Good Lord, I don't know if I have words in my English vocabulary for this one. Incredibly beautiful.


Great work in post production. You take a nice but everyday photo and make it distinctive.


Wow, lovely colors and reflections:)
Have a nice weekend!/Maria


this photo has the quality of a dream, really dreammy looking, surreal and beautiful


Yeah, I'd almost be willing to believe that was actual gold on the bottom there. Marvelous!


wow... how did you turn the water into gold? it's magical.


You have worked this one well again, Dave. More a work of art than a photograph. You have an excellent eye, my friend. Most appreciated.


was King Midas there? I hope he didn't touch the fish too.

Very nice

T. Becque

Oh really nice. It's liquid gold. Nice composition with amazing effects. I want to ask how you got the gold, but then not tread on your art too.

Tammie Lee

you really ad magic to your art~


Very nice! Your colors and composition make this an outstanding picture.


Davem, I am just amazed at your work. Fantastic image and the reflections are awesome.


I should love to stroll around there ... inmid the golden air and the marvellous stones in the water ... that IS vacation! greetings from kri

Gorgeous - looks like 14 karat gold floating out there!


Sooo cool, Dave!!! Such a wonderful shot and the composition is so beautiful! Absolutely flawless!


Gorgeous! I love how it's all sparkly, and I don't just mean the reflection. It seems to shimmer. :) Love the bits of bright color too. :)


Oh wow! It's just stunning, sparkly, magical!


Simply beautiful. The colors are wonderful.


Where is this place? Can I go pan for gold? ;-P
