Toronto from Wards Island by palmbook
Toronto from Wards Island
After Niagara, I took a chance to visit Toronto, which was only a couple hours away. The city itself was lovely, albeit being a little bit toward the quiet side. On the second day, my friend asked if we could go to Wards island, which is a part of Toronto islands. The island was very quiet, too quiet. Nevertheless, I managed to get a usable picture of Toronto.

Second and the last photo from Niagara Falls. I had quite a big problem trying to get this photo right, because I couldn't zoom my lens at all! (My lens failed on that day) Fortunately, I still managed to get a photo :)

Horseshoe Falls from Canada Side
My first time visiting Canada and Niagara Falls! The falls were nothing short of breathtaking. Unfortunately, my lens gave up and I couldn't zoom my lens at all, so I couldn't get as many pictures as I wanted :(

I have been and will be traveling for most of this month. I will surely have many photos to share. Please stay tuned!

Schwedagon Pagoda
Arguably one of the most grandiose and finest Buddhist monuments in South East Asia, Schwedagon Pagoda is a must-visit for anyone who travels to Myanmar. I took this photo from Vista Rooftop Bar though.

Phu tubberk at Dawn by palmbook
Phu tubberk at Dawn
Phu Tubberk is a very popular spot in Winter. It offers a very scenic view of mountain range and nearby towns. I took this photo around 5:30am. I really like the light trails on the ground, both on the road leading to the mountain top and the highway (the farther one).

It was a quiet afternoon here in Thailand. I was writing my papers when I found out, with delight, that I received the third Daily Deviation! I totally did not expect to receive it so soon, as my first and second DDs were over one year apart! It was a total surprise, in a great way, for me. I would love to thank all of you for your continuous support. :love:

Sangklaburi by palmbook

This is the first photo which I changed my post-processing technique. Usually, I rely on Level and Curve tools. Recently, I was told by a friend of mine, whom is one of my favorite photographers as well, that he mainly uses brightness/contrast tool along with dodging and burning. So, I tried it out. While I love the results, I think I still have a long way to go to perfect this technique. I am therefore very glad to receive this DD, as it encourages me to keep trying and exploring :)

Second picture using the technique

A little bit of bad news: I have just received an article confirming that Kodak is discontinuing one of its black-and-white films - Kodak BW400CN. This film used to be my main workhorse and I have made memorable pictures with it, including my first DD. Now I only hope that Portra, my last remaining favorite film, does not get discontinued anytime soon.

To conclude, I would like to feature some photos I have collected in my favorites over the years :) Thank you all of you who make DeviantArt such a heartwarming community :love:

If you know you have a Pulitzer-winning picture in front of you, and you have only a film camera, what will you load?
