Random Taiwan Images

Here are my most recent “random” images from Taiwan.  It’s quite a mish-mash this time with images from the beach, the mountains, the city, a drainage ditch in Banqiao, and even one from a night club.

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone over at Taiwanderful.net for holding the yearly “Best Taiwan Blog Award”.  I’m very honored to report that I’m a co-winner this year for the Best Overall Taiwan Blog and the Best Taiwan Photography Blog!  I’ll be sure to keep up the posting and I have a few new blog posts simmering that I should be able to put up in the near future.  Thanks everyone!

This first image was featured in a album on my facebook page called “Critique Me.”  If you’re trying to progress as a photographer, I would highly recommend asking for critiques from your peers.  It’s an invaluable way to get a different perspective of your images.  (Just don’t forget to wear your thick skin!)

Taiwan Economic Contrast

Ed probably deserves his own post for these next few images.  Most of them are a few months old, but he has really been busting.

Taiwan - Soundman at The Wall

Aphasia's sound man at The Wall, in Taipei, Taiwan.

The last two are ones that I should have probably put in my “Critique Me” album.  I think they’re are both a bit awkward.  I just don’t like shooting people from behind.  I feel that you almost always need to see a person’s face to feel their emotions on the situation (The image of the soundman (above) is one of the few that works for me).  In both of the temple images, I was also really limited with the angle that I could shoot from, and I guess that leaves me a little unsatisfied.  What do you think?
