    Well, those pics definitely don't make me want to go there... I don't think I'd visit there any time soon.

    it was amazing, but i didn't take pictures that really promoted that, and especially when editing them i seemed to always like the darker ones :dunno:

    the weather was pretty shitty the whole time, really windy and cloudy

    the people are actually really happy, possilbly the happiest people on earth... i just have trouble approaching people as subjects, and don't have a zoom lens to capture that emotion from afar

    also there were some negative reactions to my camera, just seemed to make the locals more uncomfortable than it would normally :hs:

    hmmm they all look light enough on my monitor :dunno:

    i really hate digital photography, in that you'll edit something that will look great on your monitor but it will look like shit to everyone else :ugh:

    i need to research monitor calibration

    Definitely dark as in not very bright.

    P.S. Your monitor may lie, but the histogram doesnt. Check it in PS.

    makes the place look really sad and gloomy. Could be used to show poverty. If thats what you wanted you did a good job. I really like them and #13 is my fav

    #9 would be the best IMO, needs alot of PP. It had so much potential.
