    this plant has some kind of potato looking thing in the ground, apparently they use it to make a kind of flour.

    Nice images. I think the B&W is the stronger of the two images here. Good work.

    Where in Thailand were you? I read in a previous post where you said you were in some border towns of southeast Asia.

    I prefer the BW as well - it is much more striking.

    this was taken north of chonthaburi and south of arranya prathet (or however you spell that one)

    somewhere along the thai/cambodia border.

    Ah - yes, I don't actually recognize either of those names. I stayed during my visit in Northern Thailand, about a 5 minute walk from seeing Laos and Burma across the Mekong. A beautiful country though. It is a shame that it has been so absorbed with tourism (yes, it is ironic I just said that - being a tourist myself)

    its not tourism, its the tourism industry. and its the tourists who support the same type resorts and what not instead of staying at local hotels and getting off the beaten path.

    being here makes me very glad my camera bag has a rain flap . . .
     
  7. Agreed. Quite good.

    I also agree that the black and white one is the strongest

    I actually like both. However, I would crop the second a bit on the right to take away the motion from the foreground leaf, too distracting, and the motion is left on the others.
