  1. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. hey there and thank you for your information – I’ve definitely picked up something new from right here. I did however expertise a few technical issues using this site, as I experienced to reload the site many times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and could damage your high quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for much more of your respective interesting content. Make sure you update this again soon..

  3. Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared across the web. Shame on the search engines for now not positioning this post upper! Come on over and visit my website . Thanks =)

  4. This is a common sight one can see around villages, where lives of old people are yet untouched by modernizations. Rural people seem so fond of smoking ‘Hukka’ despite its harmful consequences to their health. Well for a photographer it could be interesting ‘subject’ to click.

    Here Antique should go for upright composition to capture full length of elderly women smoking ‘hukka’ in the picture. Unseen face of her, robbed this very chance of knowing her pleasure in smoking hukka. Moving couple of steps to the left could help photographer to cover her face much easily.

    Small suggestion: While taking such picture wear a big smile on your face and don’t point your camera instantly, first greet her saying ‘Namaste! Amai’ (Nepalese are very friendly people on Earth; I guarantee they will respond you with an open heart). This way approach will give any photographer better chances of capturing striking portraits of village people.

    And lastly don’t forget to disable this function: Date getting imprint on your picture. I know this is a digital picture and you simply can check its IPTC data anytime using Photoshop to find its date when it was taken. Imprinted date in this picture is distracting viewers’ attention from pictue’s main theme.

    Good luck! For next time. 🙂
