Hola Diego,

Primero que nada, muchas gracias por el amable comentario. Por otra parte, veo que expones poco , pero la fotos que compartes son buenas. Esta por ejemplo, está muy bien trabajada para haber sido tomada con luminosidad de fondo algo complicada. Debo felicitarte porque explotas muy bien tu cámara compacta. Mucha nitidez y gran enfoque en tus fotos... a ver si compartes con mas frecuencia!... muchos saludos y mejores deseos desde Venezuela.
