    Wow, thanks for the compliment, Jason. I really like shooting landscapes, I find it very rewarding. That is, when the weather is right (not very often here in the Netherlands...).

    I would really like to get into wedding and portrait photography myself. Making money with photography would be a lot more fun and more lucrative than my current weekend job (working in a local Chinese restaurant). However, I have not much of portfolio in these fields (or experience for that matter) and have no idea how to get started. I'm waiting for family members to get married so I can get that experience .

    I know a bit off the photo thread topic, but Prospero, if you seriously want to get into professional photography, look up a local photographer and start talking to him/her, become friends, eventually ask if you could tag along to a few to get an idea of how they do it, take some pics, and go from there. Tagging along can be a VERY helpful experience and its been my finding that most pros out there dont mind helping out those just starting out.

    Jason, thanks for the advice. I'll give that a try once I have the time. The problem is, though, that I have little time with my regular job and university. Today I just remembered that I have a distant relative who is a pro photographer. I think I'll contact hime some day.

    Shoeytennis, nice shot (and nice girl, you're a lucky man ). I like the way you edited it. It really has the gangster feel you mend to give it.

    Dave, I also like your picture. You managed to capture the winter feel of the scene very nicely. I like the way the lights of the cars, signs and trafic lights stand out of the picture.

    Here's my picture of the day. Taken after the sunset of the previously posted shots of the bycycling bridge across the highway. I tried a bit of a different composition than usual, with the upper two thirds sky instead of the other way around. As always, comments and criticsm are welcome
