Wat Po at Dusk

Wat Po Temple, Bangkok, Thailand

Wat Po Temple is truly magical at dusk — and surprisingly uncrowded we discovered.

I tried to create an HDR version of this image in Nik HDR Efex Pro using either a set of -2/0/+2 EV shots or just the -2 and o EV shots. But I been able to create subtle and compelling HDR images from photos taken at night and showing significant light blooming. Recommendations or tips anyone? Meanwhile I processed the -2 EV shot for this blog post.

Amphawa Floating Market, Thailand

Amphawa is considered by many to be a much more ‘authentic’ floating market. Despite not being on the main tourist track, it is becoming increasingly popular especially with visitors from Thailand and Asia at large.
