Last week I asked you to rate your photography skills. The poll got just under 150 replies and it seems we have more Professionals than Newbies with a large majority of Advanced Amateurs !
Results are as follows
A few comments !
I have been struggling with this question for quite some time, is it OK to have one big CF/SD card or it is safer to have many smaller ones, and where is the cut between practicality and safety?
Myself I never had the guts to buy a CF card bigger than 1 GB, I have a lot of 1GB cards and a few 512MB even and I always feel it is safer that way. Having recently loss 80 pictures due to a card corruption I am happy with my decision. However I feel it is somehow overkill to carry all these cards, I would be much better with 1 or 2 4GB cards.
So what do you guys do ?
It is all over the web Microsoft offered 44.6 Billions US dollars to buy Yahoo on Friday!
44.6 Billions US dollars and who is concerned the most? Flickr users!
Yes, It seems that Flickr fans are not happy at all about the news at all and they gather showing their malcontent and frustration doing what they know how to do best, UPLOADING IMAGES!
The just newly created group MICROSOFT: KEEP YOUR EVlL GRUBBY HANDS OFF OF OUR FLICKR already count 951 members 128 photos and 33 posts !

Don’t worry folks I won’t ask you to actually send me one but rather to shoot it for me.
We all come from different places and cultures and everyone of us has a different story to tell about his region, town or city.
The purpose of this 4 weeks photography projects is to show your landmark, any natural or human made edifice that would uniquely identify the place you live in !
That would be like the Pigeon Rocks for Beirut or the Statue of Liberty for New York etc… It does not have to be so famous or well known just a picture that reflects or identify the place you call home.
I have decided to spice the Photographer of the week a bit so I went in a quest to find different photographers shooting various subjects !
This week I was lucky to meet Don that was kind enough to accept my invitation as photographer of the week on adidap.
Don is an accomplished bird photographer. In fact Don loves nature photography but his favorite subject is birds and I must admit he is quite good at it !
Bird photography requires a lot of patience and experience and you will soon notice that Don is nothing less than wonderful at it. Birds in flight or on land Don does a great job in capturing these animals in their natural habitats.
Before leaving you with a selection of Don’s best shots I want to invite you to pay him a visit at his web site to enjoy more of his work.
