Schwedagon Pagoda by palmbook
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
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).

Sunrise at Nam Naw
Sunrise at the Phu Koh observation point, Nam Naw national park, Phetchaboon, Thailand. It was the first day that I see morning fog. While the fog was much less than expected from other people who were also there, I think the amount is just right.

Suwat Abyss Fall by palmbook
Suwat Abyss Fall
One of the two most famous waterfalls in Khoa Yai national park, Suwat Fall is a must-visit place. The path leading to the fall is paved and only 200 meters from the road. While it is not as big as Hell Fall, it is nonetheless breathtaking.

Since it is almost the end of monsoon season here, the current is very strong. The water spray reached me who was a good 10 meters (or more) away from the fall. I had to constantly wipe my lens.

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:

You have some really stunning photography and I really enjoyed browsing through your gallery.  I was wondering if you have done any tutorials or have any advice for night shooting?  It's something I've recently been trying to improve at, but even shooting at low ISOs and with really long shutter speeds I seem to end up with more noise than I know how to control in post. Thank you very much :)
