I see that you're taking things in socialist tempo.

And besides, I love hamburgers, I think it's the best food on the face of the planet.

Hope your trip to former Yugoslavia managed to tinkle your hard earned perspective of life.
Better yet, let's not get all methodical and philosophical.

Cheers again!

Hey zygh and Terry, hope we're all still on the same wavelength! Glad it hasn't turned into some flaming thread! :!:

Well, as someone who has spent years in both financially richer and economically poorer countries as well as travelled and interacted with many different cultures, I think we all have a lot we can offer each other. And photography is just one way of sharing that!

Below are a few more photos of "rural Romanians"....hope you find them interesting. Comments on photos very welcome! :idea:

First photo is of a woman in a village the mission / charity organisation I work with has a lot of contact (we have an rehabilitation centre for alcoholics there). This photo is of a few years ago when this lady visited a children's camp we held there... and I was so pleased with the result.

2. This photo is of my fiancee's uncle. He lives in another village, and this photo was taken on a day we slaughtered a pig there (26 Dec 2005)... Interesting village tradition! I grew up on a farm in Tasmania, Australia, and was used to sheep and cows being slaughtered, so this was an interesting new experience!

I like this photo as it really captures the personality of the uncle well (at least to me).

3. And then this photo is of my financee's grandmother. She lives in the same house as her son (my fiancee's uncle) and his family... her house burned down a few years ago... thankfully she didn't die through it! And "uncle Feri" is building her a new house so she can be a bit more independent in her last years... but still living on the same property to be looked after. She's a hardworking "granny".

Now especially for Terry.... as per your request for a photo of a younger woman from Romania... here are links to two previous topics I started with photos of my fiancee! We plan to be married sometime mid this year...

As you will see in the posts, I'm a thankful man to have such a photogenic subject... but of course there are many more important things about her than just her looks!

Sometimes I wonder whether the canon 350D needs some adjustments, try as hard as you want to, the pictures come soft. Had anyone else experienced this problem? Thanks.

Aumma45, It's true some of my photos (like the woman / donkey one) are a bit soft. I suspect because I was / am still getting used to the camera. Especially at low depth of fields, or moving subjects or when I just shoot too quick.

But generally the photos are sharp. Here is a 100% crop of a photo I made 2 Sundays ago, of a cliff face using same Canon 350D and same 18-55mm kit lens. My 28-135 lens seems to get sharp shots easier (e.g. in tricky lighting, etc). But generally all are quite sharp when I try.... Now I just have to learn to concentrate more on technique! Thanks for your comments

Paul

Yes, Aumma is right, I have seen lot of photos where I have noticed the softness of photos taken by Canon eos 350d. Also i've seen very good photos and sharp enough but they have been PRO users, and with maybe special lens.

Here, All of your photos are not that sharp as should be, even the last one.

I was thinking maybe it is the reason of making the photo smaller for NET and then loseing the sharpnes but then I went to the test images in full size and should be better........... there I decided to think about buying the NIKON D70s instead of eos 350d even I started to think about KonicaMinolta 5D as the cheeper one.

I think the original picture that was posted is a very simple, yet powerful image

Many folks who live the good life here could never even begin to fathom the depth of that picture.

Nice job!
