    Zapp! Long time no post, and when you post, they are winners. Thanks for sharing. Care to give us more details on your travels to Tibet?

    Thanks, it has been a LONG time since i picked up my camera and seriously take some shots. I still have a lot of shots from the URL that i posted...do take a look...too many to link here already.

    I am hoping to write a small article regarding my trip to Tibet...
    At least then the photos will mean something...instead of just being photos. Look forward to it! For now, just look at the captions that are available on the webby...

    Regarding the children, it was on a trip out from Lhasa to outlying villages. We went to this lake (located btw, at 4500m) for lunch and we packed lunch (cup noodles) and they came rushing to us so we just gave them what we had left...i think the children never experienced a gift before...

    Look at their eyes, they never fail to make me feel for them.

    Airplane window on the way to Lhasa...

    Of course, there is such a thing called Photoshop to help get rid of the neutral density effect of aircraft windows...

    Hi

    i just discovered this post, after a short period of absence from the forum....

    great photos....i like the sense of intimacy the Sigma 17-35 gave your photos, esp the pple shots. The 4th photo, the one with the kid's leg stretching out from under your frame, looks like a real winner.

    hey u went to Tibet! that's one of the places i really wanted to go. now i have someone to consult on places to go when i do make that trip down to Lhasa

    Thanks for all the comments...
    My fav photo for the whole trip is actually the 4th one...

    You just won't believe how fortunate we are here in S'pore where food and water are plenty...

    Those kids there are really poor...

    In the panoramic shot, the stupa on the left spoils the flow to the shot. A panoramic shot has to flow nicely from one end to the other, by my eyes are immediately stuck to it.

    BTW, not fair, you got to see the pandas up close in ChengDu's Panda Breeding Centre. We went there early in the morning (9+ 10am) and they are not quite roaming out yet. And 200mm isn't enough.

    Wow!! Nice shots!
    There's something very simple and right about the way you compose them.
