Hello, I'm Melanie but a lot of people call me Mei (pronounced like the month May).

I am mostly self-taught.
- use Gimp to edit my photos.
- use a Canon EOS Rebel T3i called Novak with a standard 18-55mm kit lens and a 50mm f/1.4 lens

Thank you Amelia Pinzon for buying me my first Pro Account and thank you dBernd for buying me my second Pro Account!

    "I remember the first time I saw this photo I was completely amazed. www.flickr.com/ph.... then I rediscovered Melanie's stream a while later and just fell in love with her work.

    Melanie is such a talented girl. every aspect of her pictures (focus, light, composition, processing, originality) is just INCREDIBLE.

    Don't ever stop taking pictures :)"

    "I think that you were just getting into your 365 project when I first found your photostream. Then, you were really good. Now, you're really great. It's like every picture just gets better and better. You always put so much of yourself into your photographs- so much emotion. I love the little stories and songs you add to the descriptions; your cheery personality, your faith. It makes your work even more amazing. You truly do inspire me. You are always progressing and constantly wanting to improve. You've worked so diligently on your 365 day project, and I sincerely hope you continue to post pictures when it's completed.

    You create beautiful photos, Melanie. I'm so glad I came across them :)
