    Thanks Steve. The good news is, it's melting quickly, and we're expecting a high of nearly 60 on Thursday. I'm elated. I really am getting pretty tired of winter.

    Rayyan: The Hilton Rainbow Towers" are still there as part of the "Hilton Village". In that any experience is a good thing (existentialist-wise), I had a good time.
    Rayyan: Great photo and narrative. Can't wait for your other story.
    Hermann: You're welcome. We haven't had a non-german car in 20 yrs., including Audis.
    Steve: Thank you!
    Hermann: Thanks!
    Lloyd: I think there's only about 10 deg. difference in highs and lows in Hawaii. Probably about 80 deg. difference in SLC?
    Corlan: Thank you, sir! Of course, you're more likely to see someone you know from Seattle in Hawaii, or Mexico, then you are in Cleveland (for example).
    Jorgen: Stunning! Thank you!
    Lloyd: On the bright side, you get a lot of practice getting the WB right in snowy landscapes. Nice photo and neighbor!
    Rayyan: +1 to what Corlan said about your "soul of Bali shot"
    Corlan: Nicely shot. The B&W snowscape in tremendous!
    Rayyan: The color and detail in the photo with the scale is incredible. Nice photo. Really like the next photo, also. What is she doing?
    Hermann: Nicely framed and framed!
    Lloyd: That's basketball with a passion. I'm assuming no millionaires? Great expressions and body movement. The last one, I think, is my favorite. (insert salute, here)
    Steve: Striking photos. The strong silhouetted tree and framing somehow reminds me of W. Eugene Smith's "A Walk to Paradise Garden", 66 years later. (insert thumbsup, here)

    Cheers, Matt.

    Thank you for your interest and best regards.
    Hermann, a very interesting image on many levels. Complicated, many layers.
    Lovely angle for composition. The intricate binary ( ? ) wall design invites further study. The minimilistic decor inside, uncrowded all add to already rich
    capture.

    Very well done.

    Lloyd, I feel I am sitting on the benches. Beautiful action photography. The

    Something your niece and the teams should rightfully hang on their walls.

    Excellent.

    Steve, I continue to be envious of your talent. This set is no exception. It is difficult for me to add to what others have already said.

    They are truly beautiful in comp, execution and the subject matter. The processing is glorious.

    The third ( last ) one is exceptional!!

    Bravo my friend.

    Matt, thank you.These are mostly captures in various Temples, where the Balinese go to pay homage and offerings. And pray.

    We have been in the Temples. Let's venture to the North of Bali. Where?

    To the UNESCO sponsored Rice Terraces of Bali.

    360 Hectares of them. 1 hectare = 10,000 sq. mts.

    Huge, Amazing, Beautiful; where most balinese work...

    We shall walk through them, look at them from above, and from within them.

    Spectacular series again, Steve.
    Love the painterly, post-impressionist look of the first one, and of course the poignant sensation conveyed by the last.



    On a technical note, if i may, these have a somehow softer, dreamier feel than your usual crispier, even more contrasty rendering. FWIW, i'm personally partial to the latter, which in my eyes participate in creating the impact in your images and carry the unmistikable artistic signature of your body of work. As i said, just a thought -great photos anyway

    A luxuriant tesstimony, Rayyan.

    Corlan, thanks. It is not difficult to move around. Motorized two wheels or 4 wheels should easily do the trick. Cars+drivers are readily available for hire.

    The Batur Volcano. The most active volcano on the island. Not the highest, but
    very active. The plains are very fertile.

    Last eruption in the 90s spewed ash all ove the coast line way down south.
    The volcanic ash can be seen as black in the photo.

    It was miserable day for photography and I just did not feel like going much further.

    Sorry for the lousy IQ.


    I think that about covers it for now..except one story...me and the model!!

    That said, stop teasing Rayyan. We want the story!

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I need a girl. I said to my guide.

    His face lit up. I was wondering when you would ask, Mr. Rayyan he said.

    Nobody stays in Ubud for more than 2 or 3 days. Enough culture. They head down to the coast.

    One or two hours ? I thought he asked. 1 or 2 hours for what ? I said.

    To get to the coast. The bars, the clubs, the girls. I know them all, he said.

    I don't want those.., he cut me off. I know exactly the place sir. The golf club!

    But I don't play golf, I said. Ha! Ha! Nobody does, he said. They just choose their caddies there Mr. Rayyan. What caddies ? I was curious.

    From all over sir, across the oceans, lands West, East , North, South and all places in between. Caddies, for you waiting Mr. Rayyan.

    Expensive place sir, very expensive. But the caddies go the extra kilometer for you.

    I know of some customers from a rich country near here, get caadies for a week end. Why ? I asked, the game lasts that long?

    No Mr. Rayyan, searching for balls! Balls !, I asked. Golf balls. They get lost easily in the rice paddies and coconut plantations. It takes a long time to find the balls sir.

    You are out of your mind, I said. let's go. He lit up. The coast ? sir, he asked.

    No, I said. The Temple. I thought he was about to cry..


    But why sir? he pleaded. To find the soul of Bali, I replied.

    Corlan, must be the new presets in SEP 2 that are portraying a dreamier look! Just scratching the surface with this new version. Thanks My Friend!

    Classic Rayyan at its best!
    Light, textures, dimensions and of course colors.

    Kodachrome no more? Who cares when we have the Rayanochrome in the digital age...

    For sure it's never easy to adapt to new processing techniques. All the less when you already develop such an identifiable style -as in your case.

    While we're on the subject of b&w conversion, after playing around with SEP2 for a while (including a beta a few weeks prior its release), despite being a regular user of the first version, i eventually opted for a different route.

    Maybe the bugs, or the interface, or the changes in algorythms... or current personal taste/state of mind... can't really say. I still keep a functional copy of SEP1 with CS4 32b for a couple of presets (two actually, namely customized Center Focus anf Holga Soft) for specific work.

    Here's a couple of samples with the new workflow (no SEP):
    ( note: i'm aware that the horse was posted a few pages back on a different occasion -sorry for the redundancy)

    C&C welcome as always!

    Rayyan, The workmanship on that elaborate statue is amazing! Your Processing & Framing Are Spot On Again!

    Corlan, whatever workflow your using is working Extremely Well! I too find myself slipping between SEP 1 & 2. Oh well, whatever works! Excellent IQ,shooting & processing!

    It'll do wonders in your hands... well it obviously does already!


    * actually not only for macro. It's especially good on DX sensors for portraits, and even on FF it's a serious contender for any work usually requiring say, a 50G. Of course when the couple extra stops are not needed. But the transitions and bokeh are definitely top notch.

    Maybe the most underestimated lens in the Nikon G lineup (initially it was the 105VR, but, people caught up on that one).

    Corlan, whatever workflow your using is working Extremely Well! I too find myself slipping between SEP 1 & 2. Oh well, whatever works! Excellent IQ,shooting & processing!
    I have to vote with Steve here, Corlan. Really excellent tonalities in those b/w conversions. And the repost is well worth the second look. The new processing makes it a new image.

    * actually not only for macro. It's especially good on DX sensors for portraits, and even on FF it's a serious contender for any work usually requiring say, a 50G. Of course when the couple extra stops are not needed. But the transitions and bokeh are definitely top notch.

    Maybe the most underestimated lens in the Nikon G lineup (initially it was the 105VR, but, people caught up on that one).
    Corlan, you've been holding out on me! Im amazed at how small,light & sharp it is! It certainly is a sleeping giant! Thanks Friend!

    Corlan, Masterful is what immediately comes to mind. Smooth is next. Lovely
    tonality. Difficult to choose from the set..very difficult. #1 ( your father ? )
    is one I would love to hang on the wall.

    #2 is uniques, but different. I don't know how it prints.

    #3; same horse? ( I counted the flies!! . what a beautiful portrait. The whites on the neck and mane...wow!

    Lovely work.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images


    Ari, I said. I have shown you the three previous photos.

    I want a girl. Not a professional model like we saw the other day.

    A Balinese girl..innocent, modest, and beautiful with long black hair. Never been a model, I repeat. Who does not work in bars or clubs..any clubs. And in Ubud. Not on the coast.

    I want to photograph her in all the three places I have shown you.

    Can you do that for me, my friend. I asked Ari.

    Impossible, Mr. Rayyan. It seems you want a girl to marry, not to photograph! That would be a different proposition. I have to consult my elders!!

    In that case Ari, I said, I have to get rid of my Charlie Sheen outfit ( not in style now I hear ), and put my pants on.

    I shall have to do the job myself. You, my friend, take the next two days off.

    And pass me my hypertension medication. Two capsules please. I might need
    a stronger dose!!

    Don't have much time. My friend Corlan is getting impatient.
