"I was really amazed when I saw Rafa's photos for the first time. They are some of the most vibrant and inspiring photos I have ever seen.
Naturally, I wanted to learn more about Rafa and his techniques. I also wanted to share his ideas with other digital camera users and photographers so they can learn, improve their skills, and simply enjoy Rafa's magnificent work," said Ed Krimen, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Photobird.com. "One of the best ways to improve one's skills in any craft or occupation is to learn more from the experts.

Just in time for the 2004 Olympics in Athens Greece, Rafa Torcida's photos of Greece illustrate a perspective of Greece that one is likely not going to see during the 2004 Olympics. Torcida's photos miraculously capture the beauty and essence that makes Greece so popular around the world.
For example, Torcida's photo "St. John Sunset" presents an iridescent blend of the magenta sunset with the unique Grecian blue cast of the surrounding water and architecture. The photo has a very warm, welcoming, comforting, and soothing effect on its viewer.
Just as remarkable, Torcida's photo "Dusk @ Fira" is so clear and lifelike that it makes you feel as if you are currently there in Greece watching the scene in true life as Torcida snaps the shutter. The perfectly exposed contrast between the post-dusk horizon and the bright, colorful, party-going atmosphere on the hillside is a testament to Torcida's impressive photography expertise.
"Photobird.com is a great and easy place to look at photographs. I am going to use Photobird.com to show all of my photos. My friends love using Photobird.com to see my photos and it's very easy for me to maintain my work there," said Rafa Torcida of Madrid, Spain.
