I would say this is a good 1st post, everything is well placed in your composition and frame of the trees above, good f/10 and focus of subjects. I like the comparison of the roof shape to the mountain, as high as it gets. And this low angle works nicely. A good 1st post.[+]
Markets Rabu in Kunak by darkis (5)

Interesting as I have no idea where Kunak is :) but I am sure this photo can be more interesting if the subjects are facing the camera and you take a bit more time to compose and frame your shot here. Perhaps control your exposure as well to avoid high level of brightness. It is complicated to shoot a marketplace and when you have no strong subject to show, but nice to post your first shots[+]
"Kiss Me" by skippy007 (12510)

The title is just a cheeky way to remember how much fun we had in a day of good light, windy coast, great photography and most of all in the best of company, for me in another land. And it just seems like yesterday when we were having a good laugh at this girl and we were shooting her portrait while she enjoyed it herself for the attention.
If I remember it correctly this post is a little brighter than what I saw but I think it is better to be on brighter side of things in life, these days :)
And to make sure that you could not get lost along the way, I had requested that you travel with Alftreks to land safely here in Borneo where we could continue Chapter 2 of our journey again. See you in few more hours and you will have fun with Orang Utan in the natural jungle habitat.
Houses on the Inle lake... by siolaw (38288)

bonjour my dear friend!
I see this is not 2010 but 2008, so when is your next Myanmar trip? Good to see this kind of houses because it seems to spread across the whole South East Asia region for such kind of materials used.
Very good presentation and as I see, you were most likely on a boat. And if I know you better enough, you might have a drink and fall into the water :)
I like the cluster of houses grouped here in this POV, with a hint of reflection. Must be a lovely day out here.
Need I tell you I am still smiling at some of your crazy jokes? Say hello to my other friend, tell her I am still alive, will you?

Firstly, I must tell Peter Wall that he was right, that was most likely Alfred because among all of us, we all know his immediate reaction when he sees a pretty girl, he will tag and follow her all the way to get portraits, email and telephone contact number. He has not been able to stop doing that since 2007.
Secondly to Lisa : no, all my 12 days in Australia were in the presence of supervisors when I took portraits of girls. Never had I ask for a single phone number or email.
Thirdly, that was not me, definitely my visa was denied for 2nd trip. I dont go to Brighton Beach no more. Maybe in Sydney I might try in presence of Peter Wall and Lisa.
Finally, we all know Alfred is restricted for obvious reasons that he cannot pose any girl portraits online, he lost his freedom longgggg ago. Reason is known and unsaid here.
About Santo's photo. It looks like a better day than when I was there, windy and deserted, ok there was a pair of tourists but we failed to get good photos then, at least for me. The good part here is the kite.
And maybe Peter was still right, Melbourne sky is no blue! Sunshine up the coast :)

I am late but just come to take notice of this and I must thank you for your kind thoughts. And you choose the right day to post this one, although Dragon and Tiger are 2 totally different animals and symbols in Chinese calendar, it is a great capture inside the building. Good flash where it matters most and the sign of kill only you can show.
Wish you a great year ahead. Thank you, take care
Good mood day : Trekks Bill by jusninasirun (17160)

Dear Friends :)
I can only say, you are caught once in a lifetime and this one is it :) and all may laugh at the moment of truth and enjoy life to the fullest, even at 710m high and when you are actually waiting for the sun to change direction or intensity and wait for another series of shots.
Life is good. This is a great steal away of a off guard moment.
Thank you all for kind words. I will take note. Never trust a good friend as long as he carried a camera!
Greetings from Borneo.
p/s Jusni: thank you for all.

You do know how to frame and compose this so exactly to fit into the 2 columns and with the light just falling into place nicely to get no dark shadows where the man matters most. Well the shadow of curve on the wall is just perfect.
If you can get the man's legs to be put this left side, it will be bravo! He looks drunk :)
Greetings from Borneo
Australia Day, Skippy & Rabbit by skippy007 (12510)
trekks (14348) 2010-01-25 23:23
Yes, I remember this Sunday morning when we drove up in very short time to Kinglake and on the way, this Kangaroo stop because you knew i wanted to meet Skippy. But I also remember it was 27th Sept, after which we had a BBQ party at Warrandyte State Park with few other TE members of Australia, myself being the odd one from Borneo.
Very stylish informative note that tells me more about you and the country. I wish you pleasant Australia Day. This photo is of course a great meaningful for me to remember the time when I was joined by great company. I felt like the little head popping out of the pocket in this scene, making a maiden visit to a big country and yet looking only at a small part of it.
I believe this moment is made more interesting because of the blur leg in the rabbit showing motion and co-existence with the Skippy. Thank you for posting this and I know, Santo, what is in your mind when you picked this photo and uploaded it. I thank you for that.
It was great talking to you on the day before Australia Day, because you sounded more assertive and confidence and ready to trek the world. At least my ear told me that reception of the call here at Mt Singai. Take care, my dear friend.
The Borneo jungle beckons for its Italian flavor.
