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.

Dreamy. Beautiful. Stunning. Or just wow. I really like this a lot. And the word afterglow is melting on my tongue. Always liked that word.

The looooooooooong exposure certainly gave the water a ghostly look with such beautiful soft reflections. Really nice.

Amazing shot! The reflection of the pier makes it look like floating in the mist. Very romantic!
Have a great weekend!

Extraordinaire...

It was a good idea to remind the picture wasn't photoshoped in any kind of way, cause it is really unbelivably stunning, the way those reflections seems to mist on the water... And the color of the sky is simply magical...

Well done !

Genie

You work magic with a camera...that is what I think overtime I look at one of your shots. Here I am struggling to learn Photoshop and you just take the picture and get what someone using the program gets after much thought and work. I love your photography.

Whoa. Thanks for the footnote, otherwise I'd assume it was photoshopped. Instead, I'm in awe.
