Second post for the Chinese experience I had a couple months ago. Well, to be frank, I could say it was the one of the hardest trips for me. Not only because that my left foot was horribly injured at the beginning of the trip, but the heat of summer was also making all the walking we had to do much more uneasy. But even so, China is a beautiful country. The Chinese people, oh my, their loyalty to their culture is beyond madness. I wish I had such spirits as they do. As my Philosophy of Ancient China professor said, the Chinese people have a method of life which favors their own culture to get much stronger day by day. No matter how modern they have become, they still live to compliment nature and all it's elements. It was definitely a pleasure to witness.
1) Military ship passing by in Shanghai. 2) Zhouzhang, the Venice of the Orient. 3) Can you see the Great Wall of China far away behind me?
Ever since I first started posting my personal photos on this blog, I've never posted any landscape photos. There's a reason though, I'm not really good in taking landscape photographs. I have never found out a way to show emotion in an object that could not express feelings. If you know me well enough, you'd know how much I love taking snapshot photos of people and their emotions that I capture is the most important thing in those portraits. These photos aren't so great, but I just had to show you how it was like over there through the lens of my camera.

And now... A treat for you my lovely readers, my 4th set of Photoshop actions. Best used on high resolution photos, with lighter contrasts. If the results don't look good enough for you, feel free to retouch with your own personal techniques. Most photos turn out a bit dark with these actions, so be sure to increase the brightness before saving. You have any questions, just email me anytime! XO!
P.S : I re-uploaded the Batu Karas photos with much better ones, check them out once again ;D
