I'm an amateur photographer from a small city in the Carpathian Mountains.
Photography is my main passion, it can be a lot of fun (and a lot of money), it sometimes takes me to some pretty wonderful places (like Sulfur Mountain in Banff, Canada), it's just a shame that i don't have a lot of time and money to dedicate to it.My Gear:
Canon EOS 550D/T2i DSLR camera
Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens
Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM
Tamron AF SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro (1:1)
Tamron AF SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD (VC=Vibration Compensation=IS)
Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622 Mark II + 4x 2400mAh PowerRex Imedion batteries

Tamron AF SP 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD IF
Canon 28mm f/1.8 USM

I'm pretty hard on myself and other peoples work so any picture that makes it into my Favorites is truly a work of art. They are masterpieces that wouldn't be out of place in any magazine.I would love it if you could help me improve my photography with tips, tricks and comments.
I'm also looking to make friends with fellow like-minded photographers.
