    It's tricky to write a story in the tags... As punctuation messes it all... By the way, punctuation should be allowed in the tags... please... ; )

    I submitted photos but tagged them only with keywords that I hoped would easily reveal the story. I was afraid the punctuation marks esp the commas would jumble the words and arrange them alphabetically. Anyway, the urban story for the six photos is as simple as this:
    <It was a sunny day and Binondo (Manila Chinatown) was as busy as ever and full of shopping crowd who were all hoping to get the best bargains especially this day when the entire Chinatown welcomed the New Year! Everyone was rushing for tomorrow would be business as usual.>
    Thanks.

    can anyone see "the rising sun rumble" and "travel far with panoramic and wide-angled photos rumble"? these seem to be dead links to me...

  13. sugiyamasatomi

    so is the limit 5 or 6? says 5 here, but it says 6 when I submit photos from my lab.

    ooops, i thought minimum 5 is the only requirement here. i submitted 6 by mistake...
