What doesn't kill you makes you strongerI just went back and read some of the horrible comments I've received from people in the past.What doesn't kill you makes you stronger4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I remember how hurtful it was and how much I wanted to just dissapear from it all. I felt helpless and hopeless.
The internet can be a terrible place.
When people aren't accountable for what they say they feel a certain sense of power. The ability to judge others without being judged ourselves is a position of immense dominance. It's exhilarating to exercise that dominance over another person.
But now, looking back, I realize that it doesn't bother me anymore. I don't even bother hiding, deleting or responding to those comments because it just doesn't bug me. I feel a resounding "eh",
I keep those comments up so that people can see the kind of behaviour that people reduce themselves to when they're behind a computer screen. Every "this is shit" or ""he" is just a dyke and a "she"" has meaning to me now. It means that I've overcome something that I never would have thought possible. I'm not hu

Beautiful Photography ++Think Photography is easy as a pie?Beautiful Photography ++2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.
So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.
To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.

My Landscape PhotographyHi! my name is Ferdinand I'm a digital artist working as an Art Director in game and outsourcing company. Beside doing paintings i also love photography most of my images are landscapes. I really like shooting landscapes because it's gives you the freedom and have the chance to explore your world around you and there's no limits on how you visualize your creativity. And it's a great source of inspiration and reference that i applied on my paintings. I traveled occasionally just to enjoy the pleasure and to embrace the awesomeness of our mother nature.My Landscape Photography8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Original Species Information: VestaVestaOriginal Species Information: Vesta2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The name originates from the Roman goddess of hearth, home, and family.
Vestas are an ancient race with their civilization built around nature. While not technologically advanced, they are profound in magic and hold a strong affinity for one or (in some rare cases) more element. They are known for their long, groomed tails, fluffed ears, and horns that differ from Vesta to Vesta. The tips of their ears are typically protected by ornate clips as Vestas believe the source of their magic stem from their ears. Vestas have a love for beauty and it is a part of their culture to dress elaborately, often wearing their trademark embroidery, the "Vestan Braid", somewhere on them.
Vestas are a closed species, meaning that you may not create them without my permission
Vestas, while not immortal, are known to have a long lifespan. They can live up to three-times that of a human. Because of their prolonged l

Information: Stern-WandererInformation: Stern-Wanderer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I called this species Stern-Wanderer which means something like "Star-Walkers" in german.
This is a closed species
These creatures are friendly most of the time and close to nature.
They're living in a parallel universe on the earth, like in a different time zone as humans.
Way back when not even dinosaurs existed.
They can turn into human forms. They can mate in their human forms only and when they're ready to mate their horns will shine brightly.
They'll keep their ears, the horns and the tail on the human form. Also the pattern are shown on their skin.
(Like for this #1 she'll keep the spots around her eyes and on her shoulders. She'll also have them all the way
down on the sides of her body.)
They're born form extinguished shooting stars which will crack open like an egg. So when ever
a shooting star lights up the sky, a mother will give birth
