Nat Geo Contest Update:
They finally posted resulst of their Zoo Prague Photography Contest. Here
is link to the results. The photos are sorted in ascending order (first photo is the winner, then is second place...) My photo is nr. 6. Well, I hoped for better result, but on the other hand, I won the best price
One year ticket to Prague Zoo, I find this price most useful for me.
The first place won two bikes, but I don't really like cycling and also it is hard to take photos when you need to worry where you left your bike or to carry it to some harder accessible places where you can take nice photos.
The second price was XBOX Kinnect and I am already spending too much time in front of the computer screen and it would prevent me from taking more photos.
Then there was NatGeo magazine subscribtion for 3.-5. place. That would be nice but not really that useful.
And the finally, for 6.-10. place won one year ticket to Prague Zoo. If I didn't won it, I would buy it anyway, so this saved me about 18EUR (or 23USD). Art-thieves:
There is a fb page, that repost other's people photos without any permission instead of sharing a link to the original photos. The people there are pretty ignorant and believe that they can use whatever they find on the internet. I also tried to reason with them but to no avail. There were no my photos on this page but I found photos of my friends there, all reposted without permission and even some photos were cropped so the signature was removed from the photo.
Recently, I was accused of stealing my own photo just because someone reposted it on their blog. From now on, I would like to prevent it so I decided to upload photos with even smaller resolution and I will also move my signature to the center. I am also thinking about signing my photos with my real name, not only the nickname I use here on deviantart.Other updates:
A week ago I finally decided to have my camera cleaned, because there were some spots on every photo. I was putting it off and off because it is hard for me not to have my camera round, what if there was something nice to take photo of. Just as I expected, the moment I left the camera at the shop where they will clean it for me, it started snowing and everything was white and there were so many things to take photo of.
But not all news should be negative, so here is a positive one: Recently, Lintu47
has asked me to write a small article about fireworks photography. Then she wrote a journal called "Thoughts about Photography", where she used my text, among others. You can find it here
I don't want my journal to be only a boring text and therefore I present some photos from my favourites.
Some time ago I started my own photoblog but left it empty. BUT! It is not empy anymore! I made a New Year's resolution that I will spent more time with photography and the photoblog is part of it. What can you find there? Here, at deviantArt, you can find only the photos I like the most from particular set of photos. At MoNa's Photography (that's the name of my photoblog), I will post more photos including those from deviantArt and also some more and also there will be more text including photo tips and stories related to the photos.
