In Memory of Rama IX by palmbook
In Memory of Rama IX
As many of you may have known, our king Rama IX has unfortunately passed away last week. The country has entered the mourning ever since. Last Thursday marked the one week period of the event, and many people gathered to commemorate. I took this photo with my mobile phone at my university. Please pardon the noise and lack of dynamic range.
Merlion by palmbook
Unquestionably the landmark of Singapore, Merlion is a half lion and a half mermaid. It situates in the financial district. As you can see, everyone around the globe pays the visit to Merlion :)

Hello DeviantArt!

I have been absent for a few months, but I see that many people still visit my profile. Thank you everyone for such meaningful support! and I apologize for unnoticed absence. It has been rough months lately and I could not come here often anymore. However, I believe that situation will get better soon, and I should be here more frequently.

I hope that you all would still welcome me and my new works. Thank you very much!
Serenity by palmbook
It was December 2015. I had a short trip to Saraburi, a town some 60 kilometers from where I am studying at. Saraburi is close to Bangkok, but still has some pristine nature to enjoy.

That night had a meteor shower. While I could see meteors with my eyes, my camera was not too lucky with it. lol

Upside Down
Hello DeviantArt,

It's been a long time since I last updated my DeviantArt profile. This year is and will be one hell of a busy year. I expect much less presence in this community. But please rest assured that I will not leave!

I will try to update my artworks periodically, so you guys don't miss me too much :)

Anyway, I wish you a very pleasant year ahead!
Thank you so much everyone. I have just reached 1,000 watchers milestone today :) In recent days, my number of watchers have increased rapidly. Just today alone I have 20 more watchers or so. This is perhaps the fastest rate of watches I have ever received :)

While I don't know the reason, I would like to thank all of you from your warm support. I promise to keep up the good work. I expect to take a lot of new photos in the last quarter of this year :) (It's a monsoon season here, and I don't do much photography during this season)

Again, thank you so much, and please stay tuned for more photos!

A non-professional photographer. I do photography as my primary hobby.

If you like my gallery, please leave comments on my photos or guestbook; and I'll get back to you! :D

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

31 deviants said Color!
16 deviants said Monochrome :D

Thank you na ka

Thank you very much. Yes, I do live near Bangkok. I do not frequent workshops much though, but I can point to some communities.

There is one on Facebook:…

Actually, there is a group for Landscape, but the group was changed to a close group.

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!
palmbook Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
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 :)
