Super nice pozele, intradevar e o dovada clara de profesionalism, iti multumesc pentru sfaturi, tin sa mentionez ca sunt un fotograf inca amator, cu o mare dorinta de a invata...

Nu pot spune ca sunt bune cadrele, si nu pot fi numit profesionist :). Chiar si tutorialul asta este praf, imaginea aleasa si rezultatul sunt teribile, insa le-am folosit pentru a exemplifica cateva optiuni.
