I'll work my best to get the GTA and Victoria stuff up ASAP! Interiors............I'm slowly developing those photos...........but yea, I'll see what I can do!

"White balance technique" is a method that is very useful for taking photos at night, as it helps to avoid the photo from looking too blue or orange...........this technique also helps to exaggerates the color of the light.........hence you will see the "shiny stars" around each source of light!

Not to sound like a broken record but when are we going to see a coach update??

In fact, I am planning to shut that section down as it's taking spaces, while not many people are interested in coaches, nor do I have chances / opportunities to grab photos of coaches as I am already struggling to get the transit photos for the weekly updates. But yes, whenver I have photos of coaches, I can send it to you. Check PM! :P

Additional update for this week! (Since I have so much time recently, not that very often would I get such huge amount of free time that made me desperate as I have nothing more to do!)

A high-speed video of a 1990 Translink MCI classic on rt.301. Recorded in September. This video is recorded when the bus goes downhill along Nordel Way, and gets on Highway 91 in Surrey, across the Alex Fraser Bridge to Annacis Island! It's an interesting 4-minutes-ride...........fasten your seatbelt and get ready for the journey! B)

Have you upgraded to Fotopic plus?

Nope............normally I buy extra quota............I try to spend less money on the gallery, and invest more money into a more professional camera! :D (Although, I'm still very satisfied with my Canon S2 IS, I love it! :D ) I bought an extra 500MB of spaces last year, and right now I'm still doing fine, with another 200MB of spare quotas! Probably I can hang on till March, when I get "busy" during the spring break!

Ahh since I'm replying to my web notice topic again................I'll just throw in one more photo!
