    BKK & Pattaya/Jomtien through a REBEL (dSLR)

    The gf & I just got back from BKK & I snapped a few pictures.

    In BKK I mainly used the 50mm lens & the 28mm in Pattaya/Jomtien.

    BKK

    we stayed near JJ market.

    I like this one better in B&W, but I think most people will enjoy the color:

    More to come.

    *insert typical great pics Bustak comment here*

    I love to see your B+W's Bustak, for people shots it leaves much more to the imagination than colour which would just look like holiday snaps. I was hoping on getting myself a Canon S5iS but the exchange rates just made it more expensive .
    Until I do I'll have to make do with my poxy point and shoot.

    ^ thanks. I went to school for film/video a million years ago, so I think that got me thinking about composition.

    Great Pics, I do agree that some of your pics really suit monochrome, I don't know if you use Aperture which has some great features for monochrome conversion more than you can get from photoshop

    ^ I stood there for 5 minutes watching this gentleman. I knew he was going to do something, so I just waited.

    I had a pretty wide lens on my camera, so I had to get close. He didn't notice me there with my camera, so I was lucky in that regard.

    thanks again.

    I always like looking at your photo's Bustak, it feels as if I am in LOS when looking at the shots in colour, keep them coming please.

    Good job the gf kept out of sight or she would have given the game away

    Vry nice pictures bustak. You really do have an eye for detail and the composition is bang on. I like a bit of black and white sometimes, it gets around certain problems of light and shade whilst retaining the 'realness' of the shot. More to come, I hope, but well done in any event.

    nearly missed these, always check for your new pics in north thailand forums only

    still waiting for your ''how to'' guide for resizing, sharpening and transforming to b&w though .

    What you do? Just walk along and take snaps of people without their consent?
