Sunrise at Sun Moon Lake
Sun Moon Lake is the largest in-land lake in Taiwan. Located in the middle of the country, it is very famous as a tourist attraction. Aside from seeing the beauty of the lake, visitors can go to Aboriginal village where one can learn about Taiwanese aboriginals.

IFC One II
Taken from the same place as the last picture. This one is a vertical panorama composition with 2 stacked photos. Each stack contains 6-7 pictures to convey the movement of the clouds and traffic.

IFC One by palmbook
IFC One
First time photographing IFC One. IFC locates in Central, Hong Kong. You can board a subway to Hong Kong station and follow IFC Mall sign. Outside the building is a long pedestrian bridge above streets and a tunnel. I saw many photographers taking pictures there. I guess it's a popular spot for locals :)

Mt.Inthanon
Standing at 2.3KM tall, Inthanon is the tallest mountain in Thailand. Despite its height, it is perhaps one of the most accessible mountain in the country. I took this photo at the designated KM.41 viewpoint. I was hoping I could catch some stars at night, but the rain cloud made me return to my room earlier than expected.

Singapore from Sheares Ave.
After my US trip, I transited in Singapore. So, I took the opportunity to stop over for a night. Since I had not made a satisfactory photo of Marina Bay yet, I wanted to get one. I chose to walk onto a bridge near Marina to get a photo of both helix bridge and the downtown. Next time, I wish I'll have more time and take a lot more photos of Marina :D

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 :)

Siamese Tulips by palmbook
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:

Hi! I just wanted to say that your gallery is absolutly stunning.. I just started photography and I hope I could make great photos like that one day.. What kind of starting kit would you recommend? (I just bought a nikon d3200 and I was wondering what kind of lenses and stuff I should get for now) Thanks for your time!

Right now I'm using D5100 and 16-85mm lens. But I was using the kit lens 18-55mm VR for a long time. In fact, my most popular photo Phu tubberk at Dawn by palmbook  was captured with the kit lens. My second daily deviation was also on the kit lens.

If you are into landscape/cityscape, I would recommend investing in a tripod, a 10-stop ND filter, and perhaps a graduated ND. Then, learn how to take long-exposure photographs :)
