Rayyan, stunning indeed. Both the incredible sunrise and the wonderful, modern old-style portrait.
Thanks. I won't be back in Prince Rupert until next Spring. If I see him (and there's a good chance); i'll use a WA.
rayyan: Both are beautiful images. The portrait is appealingly stylish with that pp..
Rayyan, beautiful images and processing.

Thank for taking the time to look at my efforts and providing me with such
Not a photographic masterpiece this, but I just love natural pinks.
S5 with Tamron 17-50 @ 38mm and f/7.1 (No idea why I didn't shoot wide open. Must be the pink.)
It was shot at one of the two annual motor shows in Bangkok. Don't ask me about the cars... please?
Jorgen, Didn't realize you knew Christina Aguilera! Very Cute! Like The New Avatar Pic 2!
Very powerful photo. I like this a lot.
She was at Suzuki motorbikes. There other colours too, but pink was the cutest
Some of the shows are spectacular and are performed by very skilled dance and acrobatic groups. The "Pretties" are mostly there as decorations though, but they are making a healthy profit out of it, to finance their university fees, fix a leaking roof or pay for a doctor for their sick grandma or water buffalo. All in the best Thai tradition
Rayyan, powerful photos. Thanks for sharing.
Llyod, Shtarka1,Jorgen, Matt, Osman..
You folks are truly kind.
Thanks for looking.
As long as i'm up anyway. Here's some random selections (which i hope i haven't posted before). Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.

Matt, good afternoon....
Thank you for your kind word.
B.C. One of my favorite places on earth! That and Nova Scotia on the other side!
#2.....What timing. the red on the bg, the leash wheel and the jean patch!
#3...The red railing hit me..hard..what a surprise, beautifully captured.
#4...I just love BW. Devoid of color distractions, one feels the texture, the
closed diner ( bar ? ) demands one to stop, search and look. lovely!
Rayyan: Steve took the words right out of my mouth (well, right off my fingertips, at least). Truly National Geographic-worthy. Stunning red, and I love the patina of the wall. Just a gorgeous image.
Matt: More wonderful BC goodness. Love the reds in the color, and the b/w of the last is perfect. These, and your prior BC posts have me very hungry to go back. We spend a lot of time there, but primarily in the Okanagan. Need to get over the coast more.
I'm sure Mike would correct you... he's in Seattle, WA, not BC. You are correct however in that it's just as beautiful here in BC (having lived in Seattle for 9 years).
My wife and I are doing an Okanagan circle route this coming May. I have a trade show in Kelowna and we're taking a couple of days on either side. It is lovely there, and so different than the coast.
I love the Okanagan. We have family there, and often spend part of the summer in Penticton. My wife and I have also done Ironman Canada 5 times each, and we left so much of ourselves there on the roads, that we feel a special kinship to the place. We often travel up to the TransCan, and over to Alberta to visit family. What a spectacular drive... I never tire of that one.
Shtarka1, Lloyd; you folks are to kind and generous. I am blushing if browns
Absolutely wonderful women portraits, Rayyan.
The essence (pun ?) in the B&W is paramount, where the technical subtleties of the color one is a tour de force.
Btw, is it India?
Jorgen: Pink Rules!
(and quite crisp details on the nails)
Matt: nice set again. I'm really keen on the SeaDoll. A Classic.
They say 'it's better to be lucky than good'. But we've seen enough of your work to know that luck has very little to do with it!Corlan: Thanks. Sometimes you just get lucky.
+1 for sure, rayyan. "Awesome" seems entirely apt in this case. And as for the Everest Base Camp, that is a story we'd like to hear!rayyan: Again awesome! This photo would sing in B & W; but it's an opera in color. Beautiful detail. He has a confident, no apologies, look that says he's better then just a survivor (his daughter had that look too). "Everest Base Camp" - now there's a story.
Matt, Lloyd...I am humbled.
Re: Everest Base Camp...she actually reached 6000 mts; 200 mts more.
She was on TV, newpapers, magazines etc.
I shall post pics as we go along.
We are grandparents with an adventurous spirit. She mountain climbing,
hiking, trekking etc...me exploring hotels around the world. The comfier the better
Thank you once again to all the forum folk for their kindness.
