Asia
« on: February 01, 2017, 12:22:09 »
Hi everyone,

Just (well, about a week or so) back from a 3-week trip through Asia. Unfortunately not by land but by sea. If there is one thing I learned, is that a cruise is not the best way to visit these countries as the ports are far away from the interesting sites. In addition, taking a tour does not offer much opportunities to look for the best photographic scenes. Nevertheless it it allows to visit multiple places without thinking too much about logisitcal things. The trip was from Singapore to Hong Kong via Laem Chabang (thailand), sihanoukville (cambodia), ho chi minh, nha trang, da nang and halong bay (all Vietnam).

Gear-wise I brought 24-35-58mm lenses with the D750. No flash, tripod or anything else that contributed to the weight (other than spare batteries, cards amd cleaning stuff).

For this thread I decided to include street/people shots rather than scenery, buildings, and nature with one exception. For those of you familiar with my Goodwood Revival people shots, these ones are more distant. My excuse is that I had to shoot quickly while strolling through markets and cities.

#1: Silk Art (production) in Vietnam

I only saw these today. Nice shots Peter. I'd like to see more of your trip. Especially those from Hong Kong (since i've been there a few times as well).

Don't stop please !
