    wowieee..superb images..the silhouette photography of Parachute is good but seems to be edited..would like to suggest sumthin on sunset/sun rise photography.. using the long focal length (140mm and up) – will allow u to see the sun as a big disk.. :) and using small aperture will giv u a big depth of field..
