Ghost Motion in Shibuya

    It has been some days till my last post. I work on some crazy prototype thing in my University. It is kind of time consuming but fun. The bad thing: not so much time for editing.
    Anyway, that one morning I awoke, stood up, started my flickr and saw 1500 views at my account. Wooooow so cool! Normally when I start my day I have approximately 400-500 views but this I knew something has happened. This something was Magic Water City being at Explore page ranked #4…

    My flickr friends often ask me dude how do you get so many people view your stream daily. I answered well I don’t know, maybe luck… I thought about this today when I was attending a really really boring lecture about control techniques.
    I finally got an answer how I get so many people to view my page, comment and fave them. It is you!!! Just because of you being my friends, being nice, spreading the word, encouraging and everything else you do for me this is happening. It is not that my photos are so cool because really everyone of you can take these shots. I do not use a super professional camera nor do I use some crazy outer space programs for processing. In other words there is no difference between you and me. The only difference is having you as such a cool friend who supports me.

    That is why I want to thank you as you are reading this. Thanks for supporting and sharing your precious time with me!

    As I did my easter campaign a lot of people posted awesome photos at my stream. Again thanks for posting them. Through this campaign some really nice ideas came in my mind. I think you will be really excited when I present them. Also I did not forget about my plan to do an HDR tutorial for those who want to learn the technique I use. I hope to be able to start with this project in the near future. <b<You can expect a lot!
    Have a nice day
    Ben
    P.S. I really love the ghosting here. Normally I hate it but it makes the whole photo dynamic!
