    West Issan Roadtrip photographs

    Last week I went on a road trip to the west side of Issan in Thailand. I hired a car in Udon Thani and drove North West through the mountains to Chaing Khan, then headed south to Loei , Chaiyaphum , I met friends in Maha Sarakam and went to Roi-et. TheN to meet Peter in Khon Kaen before driving north to the Cobra village ending my trip in Udon Thani one week later.

    The link is

    (You will need to copy and paste the link changing the [at] to the normal [at] found in email addresses)

    I would appreciate any comments and will be happy to answer any questions.

    Ok, I'm going to be a bit harsh here, do you really expect people to look at 300+ photographs? You have some nice ones in there but you have some crap as well. A good start would be to remove all the nearly duplicate shots. A far better approach would be to accept that unless they are award winning photos you should not inflict the casual browser to more than 10 shots in one go. I know this will take some effort on your part, but if you selected 10-20 shots for display people would think you are a far better photographer and you would hold their interest.

    Hope you enjoyed the trip, don't be offended by my comments, but please take them to heart.

    I've sat through the slideshow now, it took 30mins. Get rid of all the ones with you in them, all the out of focus ones, all the over exposed ones, then carefully select ones from the remainder and put them up in themed batches of 5-10 for a post and you will have a creditable set of pictures.

    My apologies, the link should have given 3 pages of thumbnails allowing you to click and expand only on the ones that you thought of interest to you.

    If you do reduce them in number some descriptions, words add a personal dimension, of the photos would also be useful.

    You can also add photos to individual posts, along with it's description.

    Severn, I, like many posters love personal photo / travel threads. Although BigRed was the first to say it, and a bit harsh, even by his own admission, it's much more inviting to go through a photo / travel thread when the OP takes the time to post the pics up with some commentary.

    I opened this thread thinking that I would see some nice pics, but as soon as I saw that I had to go to Flickr, then I saw that your Flickr album was over 5 pages long, I thought "forget it".

    I use Photobucket to post pics, but I'm pretty sure that Flickr has the option to copy and paste the links so that your pics will be seen on here. If you need any help, many of us are happy to help out.

    Looking forward to seeing your photo thread.

    I saw only abt 30 photos on flickr. But I do concur it makes it much more nice to read travel photos with commentary, and easier to read it in the post.

    It is quite cumbersome to post photos here, but it can be done. Advice, post in 600x800 format, not bigger as it "overflows" the screen.

    Best of luck

    Needs a commentary so that we know what we are looking at or where it is

    When I looked it was down to 20 photos and I think most were great shots. Makes me want to see it all first hand even more so. I agree some description or commentary would be great so I know where to try and see these sights myself.

    Thank you for posting your experiences.
