[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today is the first anniversary of my registration on TrekLens. One year ago, soon after registration, I became a daily user. It’s unbelivable that one year has gone so fast, although I have posted over 300 images and written over 5000 critiques, I still consider myself as ’new’ on this site.
It’s a great photography site, during this year I have learned so much about taking pictures, and adjusting images with PC softwares. I tried out a lot of new things like creating miniatures, antique images, photographing landscapes, bulings, minimalist compositions and many more… I appriciate and thank you for all of your help and support I’ve recived.
Finally, I have to say a special thanks to Janos, he’s my neighbour in Budapest and a good friend, he was the one who introduced me this site one year ago and told me to registrate. Unfortunately, these days he’s not quite active on TrekLens, but he is a great photographer and his gallery is surely worth a visit.

So I would like to celebrate this one-year-milestone with this old guy on the photo captured in a Florida wildlife conservation centre (called Parrot Jungle) in 2001. It was among my first digital pictures.

Have a nice day!

Morning Kristof ;)
Impressive close up portriat, TFS
J ;)

Hi Kristof,
Nice way to celebrate by posting one of your first ever digital photos. Without sounding rude, your photography and PP skills have certainly improved alot since then. You managed to get quite close to this turtle. Congratulations.


Hi Kristof,
congratulations! One year full of good and interesting images, good critiques and workshops.
I think an image of a turtle/tortoise matches an anniversary very well.
But let me say that I think the fellow in your image looks a bit pale. Maybe you took the image in bright sunlight?
Anyway: A nice picture and again congratulations to your first anniversary!
Kindest regards, Britta

Hello Kristof! Very good contrast. Good sharpness. Very interesting capture. Well done!

Congratulations on your 1st year with TL! The extended diagonal neck of the tortoise adds dynamism. Good sharpness & color contrasts, between the blue violet, & yellow green. Tfs!

congrats Kristof for 1 year account, hope all the best for next year and after:)
excellent close up and sharpness showing all the details and texture on this turtle which I think the subject match your note nicely.. I also like the contrast of the green and purple violet colors, really stands out so as this superb shot...

good day and best regards
