    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I don't have anything to say anymore, and I doubt that the images I took, stole almost, can do anything to describe the exceptional experience I have had the fortune of participating in the last four days. Not even the 15 hour bus ride back down from the mountains managed to normalise my mind. The Poi Sang Long Ceremony of the Shan or Tai Yai people of Mae Hong Son is more exceptional and beautiful, both from a visual and spiritual point of view, than anything I ever dreamed of witnessing.

    The photo below is only partly related, and randomly chosen from the almost 2,000 I captured during my all too short time up north. I'm sorry if this comes out pretentious or pompous even, but my view of the world looks vastly different after this. Small things get a new meaning and big things lose the significance they once had.

    Jørgen: Certainly not really comprehending the story behind that picture and although otherwise not that much after characteristics of the specific "rendering" of lenses, I really like some technical aspects here which in a specific manner intensify the impression of that great composition. So for me a great capture in any respect!

    But this is a great example (and a great shot too, in spite of any discussion about processing technique) of a trend that I'm noticing everywhere. It seems as if with so many processing tools available, people feel the need to use them all on every photo. My own personal feeling/opinion is that it is, more often than not, too much. I think one of the most beautiful things we can capture as photographers is a real sense of the natural light. Lots of post processing can make things appear false. Which is maybe the intention and an entirely worthy direction. I have to remind myself to stay open to new ideas.

    And I completely get the temptation to keep layering on. I do it a lot. And often learn something in the process. Here's an example of going way beyond the limits of "real" and maybe as far as "Comic Book".

    I'll jump in here, albeit somewhat belatedly, and say that had I not seen the original, I would love the second shot, Carlos. I do like some aspects of the second, like the additional light on the crowd in the foreground, but overall, prefer the first.

    Tim: Very dreamlike quality in your shot. Nice.

    The photographs shall take care of themselves.

    Lovely capture. You feel, you click, it happens.!

    A beautiful, and somewhat haunting photograph. Made more so by your words. I had never heard of this, so just spent the better part of the last hour reading about it and watching a few videos on YouTube. Very interesting, and no doubt much more compelling in person.

    This is one of the dangers of the internet: Because we get all the photos and the videos, the sound and the spectacle straight into our living rooms, we think we get the smell too. But we don't. And we forget that reality can sometimes be brutally more than the electronics on our desktops.

    But here's a small collection anyway, my humble attempts to remember what I saw and what I heard, until I go there again.

    It starts at four in the morning, with clothes and make-up.

    D300 with 50mm f/1.8 @ f/2.0



    Then, they gather to listen to the monk, still before dawn.

    D300 with 50mm f/1.8 @ f/2.0



    Outside, ready for the tour to the temples of the town, to listen to the monks at each place.

    D300 with 80-200mm AF-S @ 200mm and f/4.0



    The 50 or so boys, who just a few days ago were running around, playing football and doing everything boys do, are carried by their fathers, uncles and older brothers around the mountain town, dancing, not walking, through the streets.

    D300 with 80-200mm AF-S @ 155mm and f/4.0



    And at last, on the third day, the big parade, with the whole community participating, thousands of people, some of whom have travelled for hours to be there, and most of them in traditional clothing.

    D300 with 80-200mm AF-S @ 175mm and f/7.1



    Most of the boys will be monks for a few weeks only, some will stay longer, and a selected few will remain for the rest of their lives. But the most important part is the way this community works together. It's not a national day and not a graduation ceremony, it's both and more. It's Poi Sang Long.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Fantastic series of photos Jorgen. Compelling in so many ways. Not the least of which is the fact that the young lives glimpsed in the photos are almost other-worldly in their difference from anything local to me. So nice that the world still has mysteries and magic mountains.

    One is easily forgotten. Quick, in and out..so to speak.

    This one is genteel, history, tradition, culture. Experience that stays with you

    Yes, Rayyan, very different. Girls, other people, community... it's all more real, more relaxed but still more elaborate. The questions they ask and the things they discuss have real meanings. It's a bit like Norway before the oil changed it into a rich but superficial society. Having to struggle a bit for survival can be good sometimes. It makes people more beautiful, inside and out

    Jorgen: Thanks. As, I noted it's about a 1000 miles from here. A half hour flight out of Prince Rupert B.C. by seaplane to our sailboat base camp on the Oceanlight II. No roads in.

    Jorgen, that is an atmospheric capture. Full of story.

    Some like to feel and squeeze.
    Others like to squeeze and feel.

    Both get the job done. One is more satisfying.

    Regards.

    Matt, that's a good one. Nice job seperating the tones in this one.
    I like that bear, maybe because you are catching him in a gentle mood!

    Cheers, Matt.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    OK... hopelessly catching up... so just a few takes from all the great photos posted in the last few pages...

    Interesting glamour look Jason, works well with the stance, the strong green... quite nice.

    Was wondering if you considered cropping out some of the left section (into 3*4 or so) for an even more dynamic composition? And possibly straighten with just the slightest rotation CCW? Just thinking out loud here

    More great stuff from SF, Ryan. This one makes me miss the West Coast... as your other series makes me longing for Georgia

    D 700, 24 - 70 mm/2.8 G @ 32 mm & f/2.8

    Really hate the saw teeth due to resizing, but don't know how to get rid of it.

    Hope you like it and thanks for your interest!

    Perfect, Hermann.
    Where's the rest of the series? Want to see that!

    Great, great and great again, all of them bear shots, Matt.

    That said, maybe it's time you'd share the -definitely improved- new secret PP recipes? Or is it Tim's?

    OK, both of you then...

    Steve, even though i selected above two shots on the static side for their tension, great action set all the way. Love the band session, too. The cymbal bokeh ( or is it "symbalic"? ) shot there is excellent, both visually and semantically. The band portraits on top, as usual.

    Tim
    I'll add my voice to Rayyan's comment, Tim.
    And you sure live in a beautiful area... greener grass and all...
    (even though in your case, maybe it's "whiter grass"?
    just pulling your leg... )

    Are non-Rayyan passers-by allowed to lurk?

    More seriously: it sounds like it was a special experience (if not overwhelming in some way)... in my childhood i've heard many descriptions and stories of quite similar traditions from the Laotian/VN side... seen lots of aged B&W photos, too. Seeing your more modern, colorful version (to me) brings back a lot of memories. Thanks for sharing.

    It was a small village. No English..zip.
    No Moslem food, for maybe 2-300 kms.

    Kosher food. Explained using sign language.

    Vegetarian food. Again showed him leaves, flowers etc.

    He dropped us here, and took off.

    Corlan: Thanks! Tim's suggestion was a CS5 Selective color tip to remove the magenta cast. Only in California are bears purple.

    Rayyan: Are these two photos taken in the same place? I like the upward right lines in the first. Nice body position with the arm and right leg. German, but, no English?

    This one is a bit angry. Lovely colors. The green and browns.
