Better late than never ;-)
My name is Sergey (also known as BrainWorker).Welcome to my photo gallery!
I am photographer from Russia, my motherland.
I am great admirer of wildlife photography. I like photograph nature, its landscape views, scenery beauty.
Well, I felt thirst for photography as kind of art when I have my first digital camera in 2004.
I like going to photo hunt somewhere in the country, being alone with nature, observe it. And observing it, I understood that beauty is everywhere, maybe right under ours feet, but not only somewhere far away in tropical countries, as they usually think.
I am programmer by profession, so my photo gallery created from nothing by myself became the thing that unite my big hobby and my professional skills - photo-art and programming.
In this photo gallery you can view photos, rate them, write comments to them, and also purchase originals of photos you like most. Well I really hope for it :-)
Besides, there are sections that include news, guestbook, and statistics and records review.
Today I found quite interesting cross-platform software for making panoramas - hugin
Well, I already have couple of panoramas in my gallery but I made them with another software, and I think hugin is much better.
First of all it is open software :-) As open software supporter, I am very glad to find such a program. At first sight, its interface is quite complicated, so I had to spend some time exploring its numerous features, but when I understood its basics, the first result I got was very good quality - seamless, almost flawless panorama.
By the way, this program is not fast, it takes time to process photos, but the result is worthy of it.
I recommend :-)
