I just purchased the Nikkor 105mm Micro f/2.8 and had a couple of questions for you. Did you use a tripod for any of those shots in your macro gallery? A flash?

Thank you
Iain Barrie 14-Apr-2006 23:16
Hi, Such variety of subject and style - respect. Your posting Gorge Waterway 315. Is the boat a Canadian gondola?
Guest 12-Apr-2006 23:11
Your galleries are spectacular. I spent last one hour looking at all the photos. Keep it up.
lew 31-Mar-2006 01:55
I think the true judge of photography is how the photos affect the soul. I currently live in China and dearly miss the outdoors. Your galleries were wonderful. Your work has a grace and beauty. Thank you so much for sharing your talent.

Hi there,

ahhhhhh, I just came accross your gallery images and have to tell you that your photos took me back on memory lane....I lived and studied in Seattle for over 5 years and now live in FL; I so agree with you: there is nothing like the Pacific Northwest! So whenever I'll get a little "homesick" I'll log onto your website!
Thanks for sharing and best of luck to you in your endeavors!

Hi Christina
I just saw your pictures of the Orca, Rhodedendrons and pictures by the beach. Absolutely stunning! Colours and compositions are first-rate. Thankyou for sharing them.
Guest 18-Mar-2006 23:07
Wonderful images. I must say you have given me hope in my D70. I have it for over a year now & still not one picture I feel truly proud of. Had so much better results with my Nikon F65 & Panasonic FZ5. Any tips? Especially for use with flash ;-)
Thanks...and keep them coming - very inspiring!
Steve Ammann03-Mar-2006 05:56
Hi Christina,
Its a real treat to see your outstanding images. Particularly the Orkas and Marmots. Have visited the San Juan and Gulf islands 3 times but did not see a wild Orka yet. All the more reason to go again! Have voted and added you to my favorite list.
Thanks for showing the wildlife in your neck of the woods,

Chris Ward20-Feb-2006 08:46
Hi Christina, I noticed you've changed over to the D200. I'm really interested to see how you get along with it. They are still as rare as hen's teeth over here, but am thinking of upgrading when they become more widely available. Hope you are enjoying your photography course, and I look forward to seeing more great images. All the best, Chris

Toby Gorman 13-Jan-2006 21:31
Hi Christina.... nice shots. It's evident you've put a lot of time and effort into them. Welcome to Vancouver Island. I recently moved here myself from Ontario and have also discovered about a million beautiful things to photograph. I work as a newspaper photographer just up the road (my portfolio is, but in my spare time like to get out to the great outdoors for nature photography. Keep up the good work.
Guest 09-Jan-2006 09:47

Great photos Christina! Thanks for sharing.

Guest 12-Dec-2005 14:55
It's great to see true talent at work. I especially enjoy how much you try to change things up all the time when you take photos of what you think looks good, not what you know has worked before. From wildlife, to portraits, to landscapes: good job.
Success at school,
Shayne09-Dec-2005 16:10
I was browsing random photos and clicked on a magnficent Elk, and was transported to a world of FABULOUS pictures, each gallery better then the next. You have an amazing talent!! I have added you to my favourites and will continue to admire your fantastic work.

Thank You Christina for sharing this with us all!

Dear Chhistina:

I represent, a new and ambitious stock photography project, which aims at improving the services this market momentarily has to offer.

As I invite you to see, our website has a unique design concept and features which other similar sites do not offer. As the stock photography market is a very challenging place, our first steps will surely be the toughest.

Thus turns to you, an experienced photographer for much needed help. As we are sure our site has well-argumented reasons to grow rapidly into a valuable stock photography community, I am sure your effort will be rewarded pretty soon. would appreciate it if you would grant us the benefit of trust by contributing to our stock image collection with some of your work.

With your help we hope to fulfill our target of raising the standards of stock photography.

Best regards,
Dan Fintescu

Lori 24-Nov-2005 07:10
When you shoot film, how do you get such sharp photos on this site. You said you have a crappy scanner, but all photos are very sharp. What scanner do you have? I only have a film camera but can't figure out how is the best way to get my photos on line...scanner, develop on disc...I am totally a beginner. I love your photos. I notice some really clear film camera photos on pbase and some not so great ones...why is that? Is it the way people are putting them on line or is it the photographer? or is it the film? I learn from you and a guy on here named Guy Dube. I love both of your photos. Any advise you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Guest 24-Nov-2005 02:01
CHRISTINA! Damn you have some great shots. I can't wait to go to Van with you...

Hi Christina:

I love your nature photos in and around Vancouver Island. My wife and I visited Victoria three years ago and loved it. I am thinking of going to Brackendale, near Squamish, in December to view the great concentration of bald eagles. Are there any local bird enthusiasts I can contact?
CIS01-Jun-2005 04:13

Guest 17-May-2005 05:27
Thanks for your nice comment on my Kitty's "pestbouncer" gallery , but I've got to tell you that I've seen some great work out here on pbase, but your photography is indeed the very finest I have come across. That is without a doubt! When I see such great work, I am humbled. My work is rather "feeble" in comparison, but all of this has been an inspiration. Damn! you are talented! Best regards, Donald Kinney (and of course, Kitty)

Christina, I have had a great pleasure to visit your galleries. I love The Ocean and Colours.

Guest 08-Apr-2005 23:23
Christina, I keep coming back to your galleries and am repeatedly amazed at how great your images are. The nature and wildlife shots are incredible. How do you manage to get so many shots of different animals? Do you live on a game farm or something?? Every time I try to take a picture of an animal (besides my roommate) it either runs away in horror or tries to eat me. For instance, I tried to approach a sleeping dog today to take a picture - by the time I set the aperture/shutter and focused, it woke up and nearly killed me. And then there were those birds a few weeks ago that tried to poke my eyes out... L.
Marisa Livet08-Apr-2005 14:34
Dear Christina,
I have taken my time to visit your galleries and I’m sincerely impressed by the quality of your pictures. I have book marked your page and I’ll enjoy your new pictures regularly. You take me over such a different, refreshing, colourful, wild world, with the leading role of nature and the elegant touch of some architecture.
You are talented and obviously your really love what you do, that, in my opinion, is a necessary element to be able to transmit also feeling by photography.
All your comments and remarks will be always welcome and I’ll be grateful to you for your help.
We have a totally different style in photography, so yours can be an inspiring element for me, to enlarge my horizon and do better.
Thank you
Guest 07-Apr-2005 23:29

Christina, i stumbled upon your photo site purely by chance... saw your name, and thought, could it be the same Christina? From WLU, and the Cord? Has to be!
I'm just across the water here, in Vancouver, my home for the last 7 years. Welcome to the West Coast!
Nice photos you have. I'm still a photo-geek as well. You should drop me a line, it would be great to hear back from you. Cheers!
Guest 05-Apr-2005 05:09

Excellent life and work. I left a message under your "fish-eye lens" picture, but wanted to leave one here as well. Your pictures exhibit an aggressive embrace of all that is rich in life. Thanks - g

Christina, your work is just beautiful. I had no idea you had become such a celebrity... and well deserved. I am glad that I came across your website.

I wish you much continued success.

Your wildlife photos are very impressive! I'm glad you like my photos from Bosque del Apache. Thanks for the comments. --Garrett
Gil Azouri22-Mar-2005 21:24
Hi Christina,
You have wonderful pictures! I especially like the wildlife ones. You have many great moments captured there. I've been to Vancouver Island many years ago and I must tell you that you are lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Thank you for the nice comments you left in my budapest gallery.
Andrea Coutu 22-Mar-2005 19:06
Hi Christina,

It's been a long time, but we both worked for Immigration in Ottawa many years ago. A friend recently forwarded me the link to your gallery and, when I clicked on it, I was shocked to see your picture and name. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and to welcome you to the West Coast.

markvm21-Mar-2005 20:57
Christina, thanks for commenting on my pad. I appreciate them! You have some great images!
Guest 21-Mar-2005 09:13
Thanks for your comments regarding my San Diego photo album. I spent some time looking at your albums and your wildlife photos are incredible. I have never taken an interest into wildlife photography until I visited Yellowstone National Park last year. Thank you for sharing. By the way I updated by album and if you would like to visit:

Take care.
Cesar Augusto Castro Maldonado18-Mar-2005 00:01
Christina, I just have one question regarding your visit to my photos. How did you come across them? The reason I am asking is because I have set up my photos for the PaD gallery and I have seen that some of the pictures from my other galleries are being selected for the random viewing and yet no body can see them in those views.
Cesar Augusto Castro Maldonado17-Mar-2005 23:41
Christina, thank you for your kind comments on my pictures. For any person specially for one who is just starting like me, those comments are a great motivation to continue improving. I saw your photos and now it makes me happier to know that a photographer of your caliber can have something nice to say about mine.
Thank you again.
BonsEYE17-Mar-2005 22:50
I envy not only where you live but how you've captured images that inspire me to make a trip to the Canadian West coast not just a want but a priority. Thank you for sharing. Until that time comes I look forward to a front row seat of what awaits me.
Guest 17-Mar-2005 14:07
Hi Christina,
I wanted to thank you for your comment on my gallery... Guadeloupe is only 3 hours from Canada (at least from the east side), you should try to get there one day. There is a part with a real wildlife in jungle which you shoudl like.
I'll take the time your galleries deserves to admire your pictures this week end
Very best regards
Guest 17-Mar-2005 13:35
Christina, thank you for your very kind recent comments. I've just had a quick look at your photos and they are very beautiful. I especially liked the Orca.

Regards, Graham
Antonis Sarantos16-Mar-2005 08:03
Dear Christins,
i really enjoyed viewing your last PaDs. Every day you become better. I will come back soon.
Marc Vermeulen13-Mar-2005 23:15
So many fantastic galleries,great work. But the Orca gallerie has my preference.
I see, you have visit Leuven. I live about 30 km from there.
Guest 13-Mar-2005 15:31
Excellent color and composition. I am new to the digital world, trying to learn by trial and error. I can only hope to have results half as strong as yours down the road. Thanks for sharing these wonderful gallaries.
Guest 12-Mar-2005 12:50
Thank you for stopping by and your comment.
I wonder what someone with your talent for (difficult) wildlife photography could do with other subjects.
Kind regards
John Hastings10-Mar-2005 18:21

Thanks for sharing this delicious work. The 1st class accomplishment across wildlife, people, city and landscape is an immense credit. The photo resource is a generous gift too. I hope you are justifiably proud.

The galleries are now bookmarked for return visits so PLEASE keep posting.

Randu09-Mar-2005 05:15
Christina, thanks for visiting my PAD. Your gallery do bring back my memory in YVR and make me homesick! I would love to say to another British Columbian ... Go Canucks GO! Cheers!
Frank G 07-Mar-2005 21:55

I eagerly look forward to seeing more of your work as you put it up!

Regards, Norman
Stas Wnukowski 25-Feb-2005 19:33
I am considering buying a Nikon D70 and an affordable telephoto lens for wildlife pics. I read your comments on the sigma lens. That brought me to your site. Your photos are exciting!
uofmtiger25-Feb-2005 17:22
I love your site. You have a lot of wonderful pictures. Keep up te great work.
Guest 24-Feb-2005 15:07
Wonderful photos! Wonderful environment you got there.

Sheena Woodhead23-Feb-2005 18:59
Christina - Thank you so much for commenting on my PaD gallery. I only started taking household objects because I couldn't get out and about in daylight. I wished I lived where you do! Your wildlife images are wonderful, especially the orcas. Sheena
Guest 23-Feb-2005 10:10
Hi, Christina
I've seen great shots in your galleries, in each of your galleries. Good thing, you bought that D 70 ! I'll be back, and back, and back...
THX a lot
Jim Fitzpatrick23-Feb-2005 06:19
Thank you for stopping in and for your encouraging comments. I've enjoyed perusing your galleries and has reminded me once again why I moved to the wet-coast to begin with. Beautiful work!!
Guest 23-Feb-2005 03:14
I very VERY much enjoyed your galleries and will come back to them often!
Thanks for so many beautiful photographs.
jan schiphorst16-Feb-2005 20:13
Hello Christina, I have seen that you already a couple time visits my pbase-site. Thanks for the comments. I find especially your photo's of Europe and New Orleans very beautiful.
Guest 16-Feb-2005 04:06
Hi Christina
Wow, I am humbled by your work. Great stuff, very inspirational.
Again thanks for your comment re. my images. It is appreciated.

Guest 16-Feb-2005 02:33
Lovely work Christina.

When I have more time I need to stop back by and look at the rest of your galleries.

Great stuff!

Eddie Ling15-Feb-2005 08:34
very impressive gallery! Keep up the good works! I have added your gallery to my favourite artist!
Guest 15-Feb-2005 05:39
Thanks for your thoughtful comments today Christina...! I always appreciate you stopping by :-) Just so you know, most of the horns and antlers come from the locals who find them on the tundra, but of course some of them are indeed from hunters.

CIS15-Feb-2005 04:27
Christina, thank you for your lovely comments and pleased you accidentally stopped by. I've so enjoyed your galleries, I've added you to my favourites & will be back.
Guest 15-Feb-2005 01:27
Thanks for stopping by. You have beautiful images in your galleries. Well done!
Guest 13-Feb-2005 11:16
Hi Christina! Thank you for visiting my galleries!
The photographs in your galleries have really nice colours and they feel peaceful, i especially like those wildlife photographs! Thank you for sharing!
lorin niculae09-Feb-2005 12:47
You have an extraordinary sense for photography. You touched several different subjects with great sensibility, catching their real deep nature.
Very pleased by the extensive comments that show not only your real interest for the things you shot but also your capacity of communication and sharing your knowledge with others (long live PR?!).
I visited your galleries with great pleasure, I'll come back often. Added to favs, obviously.
Keep up your excelent work,
Menno Alberts08-Feb-2005 22:02
Hi Christina! I've been fortunate enough to have visited BC three times so far since summer 2000. During my visits I made it my 'second home'. BC became a part of me. The area of Vancouver and Nanaimo became pretty familiar to me and I also made a whale watching trip back in 2000. It was awesome. I have some galleries here which show pictures of the trips I made to the US and Canada. You might wanna check them uot! Thanks for sharing your galleries, they breath an atmosphere and capture BC as I remember it. Take care & greetings from Amsterdam, The Netherlands! - Menno
Pedro Libório08-Feb-2005 17:10
You work is impressive,
I just love your galleries and I will return soon!!!! are already in my favorites!!!
Guest 08-Feb-2005 00:29
I am at a loss for words, your wild life photography is outstanding! Your photos are so natural and capture some really special moments. I agree with you 100% on taking photos of the animals in theyre natural habit!

Egill Bjarki
Guest 07-Feb-2005 23:40
Thanks for looking at my pictures. Just spent some time looking through some of your galleries. Very nice. Costa Rica looks pretty cool.
Guest 07-Feb-2005 22:43
I've tried responding to your comments by hitting reply but I don't understand how that all works if it only appears in my gallery, so here I am in your guestbook. :-) Thank you Christina! I actually feel honored that someone with your abilities would say that about my photos. I absolutely love your work and hope that some day I can achieve with my photos what you achieve with yours. You have a great eye and wonderful skills. Keep up the great work! Thanks again! Mark
Guest 07-Feb-2005 22:30
Thanks for stopping by- I think what I like best about getting comments in PAD is getting to find out about such wonderful photographers I might have previously missed.
Thank you for your pictures!
Guest 07-Feb-2005 21:38
Christina, what stunning galleries. Beautiful work.
Mark Elert07-Feb-2005 20:58
Hi, Thanks for your comments. I looked through your pictures and you have a lot of really nice shots. I especially like your ocean shots, which are very inspiring. I am spending most of my time in Stockholm city which is not really great for wildlife photos. But if with some patience you find a lot of animals. Swan and other sea birds come in for the ice free waters in the winter and sometimes you even see eagles right in town. Rabbits have invaded my part of town and I have also seen a fox feasting on them, but he is to cunning to be caught with a camera. Best regards Mark
Vinh Luu07-Feb-2005 20:12
Christina, thanks for commenting on one of my photos. i've browsed your galleries and your work is absolutely amazing! i think if the PR and Marketing work ever got too boring you could always turn to photography full-time. very impressive work. i have a sudden urge to visit Vancouver Island, such a beautiful place!
Szabolcs Némethy 06-Feb-2005 23:44
Dear Christina! Thank's for Orca Photos:)) Szabolcs Némethy (Hungary, Europe)
Guest 06-Feb-2005 10:58

You have some wonderful photos, one can tell that you love shooting wildlife. I will return often to view your new, as well as catch up on your older work.
Stan Richard04-Feb-2005 22:06
Christina, love your homepage profile shot :) Thanks for the nice compliments on my "Heading home" photo, much appreciated. Your photography is wonderful. I know a gal that lives on Vancouver Island, her name is Sherry Buttnor from Metchosin. She takes great pics of the northern lights. Thanks again, Stan.
Guest 04-Feb-2005 18:02
Thank you for taking time to comment on my work. This forum is full of many creative photographers,like you, who take time to share thier work and views. I value them all. Your comment has given me an opportunity to see your beautiful photos and sense your love for photography. Please continue to post your work.
Mauricio Andrade04-Feb-2005 12:10
Christina, I love wildlife and nature photography. You have stunning pictures about this theme and a lovely cat. I add you as my favorite artist
markvm04-Feb-2005 01:53
Christina, Thank you! You have a really nice site. Very nice!
Guest 03-Feb-2005 12:52
Your photos are beautiful. I particularly like you subjects and can see that you are focused and serious about your work. Plus you are Canadian! That makes you a little extra special of course. :-)
Guest 02-Feb-2005 16:33
Hi Christina,
Thanks for your comments on my galleries and pictures! I just browsed your own galleries, you have some very beautiful nature and landscape pictures here! Unfortunately, I have never been to Canada, but from your photos it sure looks like it's a wonderful place.
Best regards,
Guest 02-Feb-2005 00:03
Hi Chritina, Thank you so much for visiting my galleries and your kind words. Just got a chance to browse through your photos. Incredible work. Will be checking back to often.
Mansour Mouasher30-Jan-2005 13:55
You have great wild life shots Christina. I enjoyed touring your artistic photographs. Your love for nature and animals is evident. Wonderful galleries indeed!
Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Chris Ward28-Jan-2005 07:30
Hi Christina. First of all thanks for the comments you left at my galleries. Secondly, I've been trying to trying to find your lens galleries for the past couple of days but they seemed to have disappeared. They now appear to have been buried somewhere you can't get to when you just browse from your root gallery. Only managed to see them when I looked at your recently updated gallery list. I really like the look of the 10.5mm DX Nikkor. I have the 12-24mm Nikkor which I'm very pleased with, but the 10.5 looks as if it gives a great angle of view and I didn't realise Nikon Capture can also apply the linear correction. Keep up the good work. Regards, Chris
Lee Rudd26-Jan-2005 22:17
Many thanks for the kind comment... now I have 'discovered' your images, I am sure that I will be regular visitor. You have many excellent images.

Guest 22-Jan-2005 08:45
Excellent collection of nature and marine lifes.You must be animals best friend and it came to my surprise that they shown their actions the way you want them to post.Amazing.Love OSCAR Stand tall pics and everyone of yours marines.Good composition and excellent lighting with very nice fog and warm golden morning light.Keep up all the good work and thanks for sharing them with us.
Guest 22-Jan-2005 00:54
You got excellent shots, your work is Fantastic, keep clicking.
alexeig21-Jan-2005 19:51

Tnanks for visiting my galleries and for leaving undeservedly high comment "consistently good". I consistently throw away A LOT. This helped me to discover your world and I have found a lot of beauty. I loved some of your landscapes around Vancouver and I imagine that they will be stunning in a bit larger format, like 800x600. I shall be definitely back for your other work


Peter Chou21-Jan-2005 09:25
You have great eyes for natural photography and some of your work could be used for National Geographic! Do feel free to visit my humble gallery and I appreciate all comments and advices.
Guest 19-Jan-2005 01:18
Christina, as a former Victorian currently living in California, I've thoroughly enjoyed viewing your images from my hometown. My parents live in the Shoal Point area and seeing the pics of the grounds around the Parliment Buildings covered in snow made me homesick. I will continue to follow your project throughout the year. Ron
gilles bourgogne19-Jan-2005 01:02
Beautiful ! Bravo !
judy sidonie tillinger14-Jan-2005 22:15
Christina - Thanks for your kind words
about my p.a.d. gallery.
YOur work is really stunning - i'm especially partial to
the tropical birds - the blue macaws are a delight.
I've made you a favorite too.

Guest 14-Jan-2005 11:20
I think you´re one very talented wildlife photog! Great job.. Although, I did like the way you captured New Orleans on those galleries as well.. In fact I liked most your New Orleans -galleries..
And thanks for your comments on my gallery ;-)
David Prill14-Jan-2005 08:18
Your work is absolutly beautiful. Our planet is lucky to have your eyes wondering around on it.. keep up the great work..David
Guest 13-Jan-2005 06:41
Hi Christina,
Your galleries are fabulous!!! I am just across Haro Strait from you on San Juan Island. Your subject matter is near and dear to my heart. I love visiting Victoria, especially during the holidays. Take care and keep up the good shots! Mike
Guest 12-Jan-2005 15:03
I don't know where is Vancouver Island and the wildlife photos don't are my preferred subject. But your touch is superb an I can see behind the Nikon a great eye. Brava. You have my vote.
Guest 10-Jan-2005 08:08
hi christina,

thanks for showing my pictures and your comment. i have look at your galeries and i say thank you, for showing me such interest pictures from north america.
sorry for my english :)

best wishes
Chris Ward09-Jan-2005 07:29
I really liked your wildlife pictures. How do you get so close to the bears? Many thanks for sharing your work. I'll make a point of returning again soon. Chris
Jeffery Stahlman08-Jan-2005 21:18
i thoroughly enjoyed looking at your images. some are just incredible! i wish you continued good shooting in 2005 and beyond. jeff
Andy Dunn09-Dec-2004 15:01
Christina, you paid me the courtesy of visiting my gallery, and I'm so glad that I returned the favour, your work is simply stunning. Its hard for me to pick a single favourite, I enjoy wildlife and landscape photography, both of which you do so well. I would have to say the Grizzy Bear and Orca shots were my winners, they took my breath away.
Best wishes to you, I will check in every once in a while to find inspiration.
Lorraine 08-Oct-2004 14:15
Hey CC,

Your gallery is impressive. You've been very busy with your Nikon. I'll have to chat with you about the advantages of digital photography. I still use my old Olympus OM-1 from 1971....maybe it is time to upgrade ;)

I especialy like the bathing bears. How did you get those shots? There must be a story there.

Talk to you soon,
