Right. So good it's scary...
The raging bulls are wonderful Jorgen and so is the portrait of this little boy!
wonderful portrait, and a great series of 'racing bulls'
Thank you all for your comments. I had a walk in a different environment yesterday, Downtown Bangkok.

Often, when I walk around in Bangkok, I think about a sentence that I read in a book about this city once: "Until the seventies, the temples were the landmarks of Bangkok." There are other temples nowadays

New tool test - D700 / 600 VR ISO 3200
Snowy evening at the Grand Tetons with poor light so I went raptor hunting.
Jorgen, I've just looked again at your latest images... you're master of composition!
Thanks a lot, Alex
For me, it's composition and timing, composition and timing. The rest is Fuji.
Same toy, err, tools ...
Agree. Beautiful, Graham. What a lens !
And Matt, beautiful flowershots as well, with lovely smooth out of focus rendering. Which lens used here (58mm), the Voigtländer SL II ?
first off agree those bird shots really cool..
thanks yes using the 58mm F1.4 on a D300, now I want the zeiss macro 50mm lol
Guys - some marvellous work.
Jorgen - excellent images. I sometimes think your captions are as good as your photographs! I am stuck in an office all day, missing out on this Bangkok life - Envy rules!
All very motivating.
thanks no conversion shot with n F5 24-70 lens and good old neopan 1600 iso film..
I loved shooting that place...
you need to put all of these is a book! love to see your images!

and what a fantastic combo ... M9 & ...
This morning, I wandered around in Poipet, Cambodia around daybreak, waiting for the border to Thailand to open. Poipet must be one of the muddiest, dustiest as well as unhealthiest places on earth, but if I found someone there who makes decent food, I could stay forever to take photos.
This photo also illustrates the strengths of the Fuji. It's a straight conversion from RAW, with no other adjustments than a quarter of a stop exposure (up), some highlight recovery and sharpening for web.
Edit: Even Fuji can be improved, so I increased the brightness slightly as well (+15 in PS), which is the version currently visible.
