    If your camera doesn't have the facility to trip the shutter by remote control, you can use the self-timer function

    -very! Would have thought such would have been standard on all Pro Nikons!

    I have just posted this image, along with a very long winded explanation. If anyone finds it remotely interesting, I would love it if you to like the page.

    For me, the beauty of HDR is the ability to pull detail from shadows and blown out highlights.

    Our minds often "compose" an image. But when when take a photo, what our mind saw is often different than what the camera takes in. Beyond the obvious "framing", HDR gives us the ability to record and present the range that a single exposure loses.

    One of my all time photography heroes Kris Kros, a great pioneer of HDR imagery has this to say about my Buddha image shown above.

    "If you're looking for a good HDR, don't go any further. Here it is. Truly, this is one of them."

    He just posted that comment (literally 2 minutes ago) on my Flickr account, and also has "liked" my facebook page.

    As way of a thank you to Joe (his real name) can I plug his new book "HDR Unleashed" due to be released July.

    Re: My photos and thought process behind the image

    Apparently my photo of the Sukhothai Buddha has been "explored" on Flickr whatever that means! I have been told that some people regard this accolade as a great honour. Not me. I regard the fact that 30 of my friends have "liked" my photo page more exciting than any award by people that have no connection with me whatsoever.

    Just wanna say thanks again to everyone that "liked" the page xxx

    Sure there were a quite a few non Facebook members that also would have "liked" if they were allowed to do so. Suggest you watermark the photo now before it gets stolen-did you ever get anywhere with that publisher that stole that other photo?

    Khun Don,

    This idea that I had about facebook has been more popular than I expected. You do NOT have to become a member of facebook to see the posts that I make, it was just an idea that I wanted to try, I already knew that some of my Facebook friends were both connected with photography and also Thailand.

    I have given up with the idea of preventing people stealing my pictures, I only posts online at a resolution that would allow only a small printed image to be made, and I came to realise that if my pictures became popular enough, then people would recognise my pics even if they are stolen. The only alternative is that I don't share my images, and as my whole motivation is to share my love of Thailand, and to show the "real" Thailand.... that could never be an option.

    I can see the posts OK-no problem-but to use the "Like" facility you have to be a member-I got presented with a sign in/join screen when I tried
