    Beautiful images. I especially like that first one. The dock reducing to the vanishing point is very effective.

    Jorgen: Beautiful lines and rhythm. Makes me want to know more. The novices (?) are filing by; receiving gifts from the women - prayers, something physical?; about to enter a door - temple or metaphorical? Excellent photo leading me to a lot of questions.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Thanks Matt.

    Here's the story:
    The monks, who are all children from 6 to 12, are only monks for a few weeks. Most of them come from poor families in a nearby area. It's normal for monks to go out and get food from people in the morning, but these were about one hundred. The event was apparently well announced in advance, and people gave them lots of food and.... sweets. That's not the usual monk diet, but I guess they made an exception for these guys

    I stumbled upon them by coincidence, and followed them around for an hour. I can assure you: it was an extremely emotional experience.

    For Buddhists, giving food to monks is an important part of the religious life, so this exercise is generally seen as very positive for all involved.
    I don't care what gear I have.

    The monks, who are all children from 6 to 12, are only monks for a few weeks. Most of them come from poor families in a nearby area. It's normal for monks to go out and get food from people in the morning, but these were about one hundred. The event was apparently well announced in advance, and people gave them lots of food and.... sweets. That's not the usual monk diet, but I guess they made an exception for these guys

    I stumbled upon them by coincidence, and followed them around for an hour. I can assure you: it was an extremely emotional experience.

    For Buddhists, giving food to monks is an important part of the religious life, so this exercise is generally seen as very positive for all involved.
    Great shot, and even better story. Love that latest shot as well... terrific stuff, as always.

    Ok, Rayyan, so here's the rest of the story. After you sent this, I showed her the picture of young Rayyan again, and asked if she'd like some PJs like that. She laughed and said, "That's silly Papa. I'm not a boy!" Women! What you gonna do?

    Plus one from me, Leif. I'm impressed that your weather's so accommodating already. Nice. And very nice rendering by that lens.

    The All New Fun with Nikon Images

    Those tulip and daffodil images are indeed beautiful, Matt (Driscoll), and great moments caught from Seattle's Pike Place Market, I also dig the graphic strength of the News sign

    Cool composition, Matt (Viablex), and excellent exposed and / or post processed in the difficult lighting situation

    Rayyan, your Bali series is an endless source of wonderfull pictures, love the carpenter shot

    Jorgen, you really make that D300 + 80-200mm combo sing, obviously a very efficient optic, images like 'Waiting' and 'Minor Wumbleness' are just soo good, looking forward to see more from your outstanding Shan and Tai Yai people series

    Excellent people shots in the streets, Tim, addictive as Jorgen said (seems to take a password to see the larger files at SmugMug)

    Leif, your spring flower captures are absolutely lovely, obviously some brilliant classic manual focus optics you use on your nice CCD sensor based D200, very nice rendering indeed

    MHC, I follow your serene zen minimalistic compositions with great interest

    Steve, love your concert session, and your Wild Iris shot is simply stunning

    And Photojazz' National Park shots, and Jason's fashion shot, and CNovick's street lamps, petetsai's Porsche 911 Turbo, Hermann's moving elderly series, Ryan Solti's great nature captures from San Fran, Corlan's portraits and random abstracts, Carlos' carousel ... I could go on and on, so many nice images here ...

    - and Rayyan and Lloyd, thank you both of you for your kind remarks

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Thank you Steen, Rayyan and Matt.

    Steen,
    The 80-200 AF-S is a proven gem, and permanently mounted on the D300. It's a heavy combo though, and it makes a mess of my logistics when travelling. I even consider buying one or two more, for backup and to have one at the locations where I need it most frequently, so that I don't have to schlep it around all the time. Unfortunately, many have discovered its qualities, and it mostly sells for the same price as the 70-200 VR I nowadays, around $1,500
    I paid $1,000 for mine, 4 years ago.
    I don't care what gear I have.
