Yes, I'm sure those basic post processing are fine, S.A., but no multi-layering -- a wonderful shot of someone cut and pasted against a Quezon City landmark backdrop.

You're welcome, Ferdz. Join ka!

And yes, Iskoo, I will join. Actually, I've already started shooting some possible entries.

I took that picture, Cruise, when I checked out their flower and pet show when I happened to be in city hall that day.

Sidney, La Loma is part of Quezon City, and you already have some possible great entries from that collection of Lechon pics.

Thanks, Sheilamarie!

Kyels, why not try? You have nothng to lose!

Good lck to all those who participate!

Hi Tito!

Took this photo during that flower and pet show.

There's really not much around that area, except when they have a show going on in that park.

I started shooting for the QC photo contest but realized there's not much excitement in QZ as compared to Manila.

Btw, here are the info on my UST night shoot:

aperture: 7.1
shutter: 5" - 10" depending on my pov and angle.

That's about it.
