    got my copy na! seriously, i was gaping as i clicked page after page. i told myself, hindi pa rin kumukupas si bai estan. i told ferdz nga that when i was starting out, kayong dalawa ang idols ko and three or so years after, i’m happy to say kayo pa rin ang iniidolo ko.

    at a time when quite a lot of dslr wielders resort to photoshop to generate respectable results, it’s always refreshing to see someone who solidly practice the basics and come up with drop-dead captures.

    bai, congrats for a year of images, and i should and i must really say this – what a year it was ๐Ÿ˜€

    Still haven’t got my personal copy but Oggie sent me one.

    Really impressive photos. You really have a knack in capturing well composed but in candid/natural moments. Kakaiba talaga. I generally loveall the photos but there are 4-5 that I really really like.

    Keep up the great work!

    Nothing short of spectacular, as always! I’ve seen the photos before, but it still evokes such power emotions. Looking forward to Book 2!

    […] I’ve been expecting this announcement since Monday when the first batch of finalists were posted but it was only today that they let the cat out of the bag, as far as photoblogs are concerned. This latest twist consoled me from my initial disappointment. At least, my redesign efforts here and in two other blogs were not in vain. I’m happy. Now, as you’re already here, wanna get your own copy of my free photo e-book? I assure you great photography and stunning pictures. Grab it. […]

    norahd, thanx. hmmm, a calendar would also be good but the problem might be in getting a good printer and shouldering the costs. okay din sana kung may distributor.

    I like your list of top 10 things to do. For everyone, summer should still be a fund and learning experience. There are still a lot of things to do and encourage both young and old minds to do. Its just finding out what will perk you up and avoid the lazy, hazy days of summer! Cheers! Happy Suumer 2009!
