[Volantangel] Playing Cards + Photography

Introduction
I guess most of you would know me as the moderator that handled the 2013 best decks contest, and one that dishes out pretty harsh criticisms to decks that are not up to par. Im mainly a collector from all the way across the world (i hate shipping rates), does simple stuff like fanning, faros, riffles, dribbles to get the deck into shape but little less.

One other interest of mine is photography, so im hoping this thread would serve to be more of a combination of the two hobbies. Now while i dont quite have the time now, final year in university, busy as hell, ill start off by posting photos i have taken in the past. So lets just have fun, and if you are a photographer as well i would love to hear your opinion, criticisms etc. I really dont mind :D So ill fire away!!

Haha I forgot to mention, I'm using a Canon 600d, which is a Rebel T3i (I think ?! No idea what system the US uses) with a Canon 50mm 1.8, Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 and Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 (although never used on cards, but I'd just mention it)

Thanks for asking joe !
