    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Nice shots Erik. I think I like the last one best...

    That pigeon one is fairly similar to one I took (with a Nikon 35ti)



    I actually turned it into a cd cover...for a mix...the girl loved pigeons. I had to flip it to make the text work...

    Erik,
    Agree on the last one. Number two is nice too. Looks cold though. Where is it?

    I thought I would add a Bangkok image just to supplement the more active ones from Jorgen. This is the first upload I have attempted so it will probably go off the rails somewhere - good old Murphy will strike.

    Murphy seems to be in a good mood. At least I can see it

    Is it one of the Ramakien paintings at Wat Prakaew? I love those. The quirky perspective and mix of painting styles give the impression of time being a part of the paintings, as if they were four-dimensional.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Yes, Murphy was looking the other way.

    They are - as you guessed - scenes from the Ramakien, at the Grand Palace. The really grab my attention - I spent a substantial amount of time there last weekend. So I now have a couple of hundred images. I was there earlier this year and plan on a return visit - these paintings appeal to me. It looks as though there is a continuing restoration program - there always is an artist or two updating them.

    I am in Bangkok for another two weeks, then returning in January for at least six months. Enjoying it.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Interesting shot John --- the ground is really surprisingly white!

    This was taken last night -- D3 and 17-35mm f/2.8 at 2.8, ISO 800 for 10 or 15 seconds.



    It looks a lot like the earlier ones, as I did not get much advance notice, and this is the closest spot to city center where you can get away from the streetlights.

    Last time I checked, many years ago, Silpakorn university, just across the road, trained student in this painting style. Some of them worked more or less permanently restoring the old painting and painting new ones when restoring wasn't possible. I had (and probably still have, in Norway) an original painted by one of them.

    Jorgen, you have to do a book or at least a website with all your images of Asia!

    There are lots of people doing landscapes, people, poverty, sex scene, foods, architecture, etc. of Asia, mostly serious and often grim. To my knowledge no one else is shooting the lighter side of life there with such a humorous tone as yours. What you're doing is wonderful, a tribute to the resilience and fun loving nature of the people there in the midst of total chaos and absurdity of life. Its a rare eye to see things your way!

    Yesterday, 5 December 2008, the Thai people celebrated the 81st birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. With all the turbulence during the last weeks, it's easy to understand that this was an important day for many.

    David,
    Your kind comments are much appreciated. I will give your suggestion some thought, and see what I can manage

    No birthday without a dance performance.

    Next to one of the temples at the village of Bang Plee, a stage had been constructed, so that the local kids, and later some not so local singers, could show what they had learned in school last week

    The not so locals. See the camera phones in the bottom of the picture? Artists in Thailand love to be photographed, and it's often encouraged from the stage. The artists belong to the people (and to the record company), and there's a never ending love/love relationship between the two.

    Beautiful birthday shot, Jorgen.
    I didn't know that Bhumibol Adulyadejs birthday is the same day as Guy's, wonder if Bhumibol Adulyadej knows that ?

    He probably doesn't but he used to be a very enthusiastic amateur photographer (and Canon user), so I'm sure they would have had something to talk about if they met for a birthday photo session. The King was born in the USA as well btw., but on the east coast (in Boston).

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Here are some photos I took last night. I went to photograph the aurora, but it was not that strong, so I went to a semi-abandoned whaling station. It was quite spooky. I used a D3 and the 17-35mm lens, and in some photos I used an LED flashlight to add light.

    Jorgen, in that case I'm sure Bhumi knows all about the identical birthday date

    Stuart, your icelandic starstudies are completely stunning, as usual. And I spotted the whaler, as well as the whale

    A few photos from Istanbul taken today. The sun rays were on the Galata tower and its neighborhood briefly. Enough time to try the Zeiss 50mm f1.4 on the D700.

    Beautiful Portrait Jim, and the grain adds to rather than subtracts from the photo.

    Great shots with a great lens of a great city, Seyhun. I especially like the last image of the backlit gulls.
    Oh, by the way, also a great collection of gear I must say

    Thanks. Indeed Istanbul is a paradise for photographers.
    If I can ever retire, I will try to make the final arrangements to exhibit the camera collection. I think it's very interesting even when compared to many museums in Europe that I have seen. I also try to use these, if I can fit some film, and it's great fun.

    Staying in Thailand when it's warm is no problem. But what to do on those cold winter mornings, when the temperature goes down towards freezing 20 degrees (Celsius plus, NOT minus)?

    While this may be a problem for many people, it's a great pleasure to launch the 2009 winter fashion for photographers who have to suffer those cold, Thai winter mornings

    Thank you for the offer. It would be sometime around spring. I'll come back to you when it's closer.

    Thank you Amin. It was a very spontaneous shot, with around three and a half seconds of preparation, and the smallest of the two girls did what she could to spoil it, but that's one of the charming sides of children, isn't it

    It's bloody brilliant Jorgen - maybe you could improve the rythmn by tilting slightly to the right, but the little blurry hand is the last detail to a perfect photograph.

    i find it terribly irritating that you're so damned good. (I wish I wish)

    Thanks a lot Jono. Funny that you mention the tilt. I did consider adjusting it. I didn't do it though, and the tilt as well as the crop is as captured.

    Still, I have a long way to go, but hopefully, I will become even more irritating in the future

    Amin,
    That's really great. Love the composition and his concentration. He seems to be out on a mission

    Ummm.... is that the D700Xs Mark II with the new, compact 24mm f/1.2 he's holding? I didn't know that was released yet

    Have had a couple of weeks to work on my SW USA trip images, thought I would post a couple of more, taken with D300 and Tokina 12-24mm lens...fwiw.

    Thanks Jorgen! Oliver's camera is sweet. Binocular style dual finders, enough eye relief for any specs, and built to take a tumble down a flight of stairs every once and a while. My younger son Philip loves his as well and regularly gives it a durability testing .
