Borobudur Indonesia 2009
« on: March 02, 2020, 21:20:28 »
In 2009 my wife and I visited family of my wife in Java, Indonesia. We toured this fascinating island and of course also went to see the famous Buddhist temple Borobudur (built 9th century).

This weekend I browsed the images I shot with my then new Nikon D70s and decided to (re)process a few.

I'm moving this to the Travel Diary forum. It's best to cluster our experiences into one board instead of sprinkling the contributions across the NG site :)

Overlooked that forum, sorry. Thanks Birna.

No problems at all. We have admin tools for that purpose ...

Very nice photographs, by the way. Seems the D70s really delivered for you back then.

Thanks. Yes, I did like the D70s a lot and during that time I met some experienced photographers who became friends and who inspired me to improve my photography and post-processing. I kept on shooting the D70s until I was convinced I was ready for a better camera, that was the D700 :)

I can only underscore what others have said. Wonderful compositions and processing!

Very nice black and white shots with a good dose of vignetting that suits the 19th century feel...

I shot hundreds of tousands of shots with the D70 and the D70s. Very nice cameras at the time. Great memories. Both equipped with a custom curve and split screen ground glass for manual focussing. Then came the D3, a huuuugggggeee step forward

Thanks all for the kind and appreciative comments. I'll look if I can find some other images from our stay in Indonesia.

Btw; the Borobudur is surrounded by active volcanoes, one of them the Merapi has erupted since Tuesday sending clouds of smoke and ash up to 6km in the sky. It must be one of the volcanoes in the first image.
