Noline says “I am an amateur photographer who loves travelling and creating images that are unique, creative and leave a sense of wonder.
I attended a three-day private photographic workshop in Italian Riviera Cinque Terre area in Italy with Paolo De Faveri -
Paolo knew exactly the time and where to take me to capture the exciting Italian coast line.
On return from my trip, Paolo gave me some online lessons to improve my images through Photoshop techniques.

Some of the images that I captured on the workshop, I have created and manipulated into images for the Creative Focus competition that is presently open and closing on 10 June.
