Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok, Thailand.
Well, after quite a long break, I am back! After 2 years of somehow continuous intensive 'flickering', I needed that long break, and I have also decided to slow down the flickr pace. From now on I will be posting less, and won't be able to comment back on all my visitors as I used to do before. I apologize in advance.
On other challenges, Flickr access from the UAE is totally blocked now, so I have to use a paid VPN service (the famous Firefox 'Access Flickr' add-on does not work anymore). The reason Flickr is blocked here is because of all the porn content.
Anyway, it's good to be back and I look forward catching (slowly) on your streams!
Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok, Thailand. Taken on the day of my flight back to Dubai (in the giant double decker Airbus A380 by the way! A very smooth journey in an awesome airplane).
6 exposures Digital Blending shot handheld, using my Nikkor Fisheye at f/2.8, and Auto ISO on the D300 with minimum shutter speed limited to 1/30s. Therefore the ISO for all the exposures varies from ISO 200 to 1600 (max. ISO also fixed by me), and the shutter speed never goes below 1/30s, therefore no need for a tripod in those conditions.
The manual blending with layer masks and paintbrushes was a bit tedious and it took me over 2 hours to process this shot.
Many thanks to my buddy Grant for telling me about this Auto ISO / Shutter Speed limit feature of the D300, which is really handy for handheld bracketed shots.
