Bangkok

Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, is a vibrant and bustling metropolis that offers a plethora of photography opportunities for both amateur and professional photographers. Known for its ornate temples, bustling markets, and vibrant nightlife, Bangkok is a city that never sleeps. The city is a melting pot of cultures, with a rich history and a modern edge. From the iconic Grand Palace to the bustling streets of Chinatown, there are plenty of photography locations in Bangkok that capture the essence of the city.

Suvarnabhumi  on Fire! #1
Suvarnabhumi Airport

LARGE View

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.

Vertigo and Moon Bar (Explore)
Bangkok - Moon Bar | Vertigo
by Hilde Jüngst

Located on the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel you will find one of the best rooftop bars of Bangkok. The Moon Bar is a completely open air restaurant and cocktail bar with unobstructed 360 views of the city below. It is breathtaking. Wonderful for a special dinner or a drink on the bar !!!

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!

Bangkok & Sunset
by Daniel Cheong

LARGE View

The famous Wat Arun (วัดอรุณ), perhaps better known as the Temple of the Dawn, is one of the best known landmarks and one of the most published images of Bangkok. It consists of a massive elongated prang (Khmer-style tower), and is surrounded by four smaller prangs.

Taken during my short trip last month. There were some pretty dramatic sunsets. I also have a blue hour version that I will post later.

This is a tone-mapped HDR made from 7 exposures, with some Digital Blending on top. I rarely use tone-mapping anymore, only when I get lazy doing the blending manually! ;-)

Have a great week end!
