The best camera

Sometimes people ask me about which camera I think is the best (No, i'm not an expert). Well, the way I see it, there is really no such thing.

I learned from the rejection of what DT wanted as pictures and what DT don't want as picture in their database.The given reasons are objectives and justified for all my rejected pictures until today.I browsed the database and had seen that there is not a lot of picture list on DT regarding "clingendael" Japanese Garden. So, I went... continue reading
