The name\'s Romar Armas and I\'m from Toronto, Canada. Was born in the Philippines and moved here in 1989. I love taking pictures and have had several film cameras including a Canon Rebel EOS which my dad gave to me. My first digicam was the SONY F505v which I loved because it had some manual functions. The next one was a Canon SD300 for it\'s size. I have always wanted to get a dSLR when affordable ones were released but money was always an issue. Finally, the Olympus 2 Lens kit deal on DELL was too good to pass up so here I am.

I\'m here to learn a lot of knowledge from those with a lot of experience. Although I have taken a lot of pictures, most of them were shots with no composition in mind.

Romar,

Im from Canada as well, Hamilton to be exact. Isn\'t it amazing how many Canadians seem to have 4/3s gear? I see tonnes of pictures from Toronto posted in various sites. Its always nice to see things I have actually seen but from someone elses perpective.

Hey Corey. I was definitely amazed at how many Canadians have the 4/3 gear. What\'s more surprising is the number of people within or near Toronto. Hamilton should have quite a lot of great sites for photography. Specially the industrial area and the skyway. :) Toronto seems overdone so I\'m trying to find places that aren\'t as common.

Romar,

If your looking for something less photographed I would head to Niagra Pennisula. There are many many good landscape shots to be had there. Kitchener used to be one of the biggest industrial cities around and has a great many abandoned factories. Around Hamilton there a number of very old estates that have fallen into ruin if you know where to look. I have only found a few but aparently there are more.

I haven\'t had alot of time to shot around Toronto but I imagine if you got off of the beaten the path there are lots of unique shots to be had. I think the North end is generally ignored.

Thanks Ann. That was my first time fully using the E300. I didn\'t really know how to use the Manual mode at that time. Was happy most of the pictures turned out fine.

I\'m starting up a new gallery and will be migrating everything over there. You can find it on my signature.

Well, I think you did a good job on that one. I like to see close-ups of animals.
