    Ciao Luciano

    Perfect us of a shallow dof in this splendid Treknature type macro shot. Good sharpness and the oof bg does not clash. An impeccable exposure on the bright highlights too. Tfs!

    Hello Ian,

    Once again the higher quality image in 1997, the cars and the modern signage illustrate the top photo is much more recent. Plus the waves in the lower shot are motion blurred. Many early exposures took 8 minutes. I can't imagine sitting still that long for a passport photo or portrait these days! They were propped up with supports out of sight to support them and minimise movement. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    I flew from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai, then crossed the Mekong by boat into Thailand. Nice to see what I missed. The Chinese are annoying many of their Asia Pacific neighbours (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Australia, NZ) with their rapacious demands for more territory and resources. I did research in 2003/4 in UNi that they were building several mega dams on the Mekong upstream of Laos. Not sure if this has affected water quality and volume. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    It looks a little bit like a scaled down miniature version of the Trevi Fountain and also has a fraction of the crowds! Good sharpness in this superb nocturnal shot. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Good textural details in the tiered riverbank. Good sharpness and the women & children animate the scene. There clothing and the plastic 'hessian' bag add a nice splash of colour. Tfs!

    Hi Bev,

    The tumulus in the workshop reminds me of 3 large Viking grave mounds outside Gamla Upsala in Sweden. A nice rustic scene and I can't help but wonder if the stones on the front gate have been recycled? The sheep and other animals animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hi Pavle

    Reminds me of the weather in Alba Iulia in Romania. If you are lucky you get a blue sky later with all the frozen, glistening dew attached to the trees. The fog adds mood. Tfs!

    A nice close up shot where we can see the artist hasn't quite mastered proportion, with the small head and body and extra long legs of some figures. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Good choice of a high shutter speed to freeze motion blur of the speeding tour boat, and excellent timing to catch it framed by the bridge. Tfs!

    The 1997 shot would have to be the one at the top. Better quality, less noise, and the people aren't ghosted like the lower shot. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Sometimes I compromise and take a bus tour. It might stop at 12 places only 3 of which might interest me. If I want to spend more time at one of those 3 favourites, I will then catch a local bus there & back. The woman's scarf is apple green so I guess that is where the title came from. The giant eye is obvious. Tfs!
