Ja, jeg arbejder i Shanghai, udstationeret for FLS i foreløbigt 2 år.
Jeg finder mig egentlig fint tilrette her, noget helt andet end min sidste udstationering alene i Saudi Arabien:)

To SteveH: good point

In the past I have always used my ixus compact camera, then I just look at the display, not directly at the light.
But in these I actually used my SLR, and i admit that my sight was a tad blurred...

To M_yOOs: Thank you very much Youssef

Sorry for the late reply, I have been absent for quite a while.

To Waylim: yes MIA

Yeah Way, I know I have been absent, but it is actually because I am extremely busy at work at the moment, no time for pictures or TE.
It will probably be at least 2 months more before I got any...

Re: To abulafia: Not as warm as you think.

Absolutely no idea how cold that is, I calculate in Celsius:)
But it was not warm as the palm trees indicated, I was merely wondering about the cost to keep this ice if the weather was warm:)

To Waylim: Well I also don't really get it

Hi Way

To Waylim: I believe you are right

I was not very happy about this picture myself, but I believed this was a good picture to show the size of the Tomb.
I agree that the Contrasts might be a bit off and that there is a halo around the...

To marcocig: it could look that way

I agree that it could appear that i treated the sky and water differentl, but that is merely due to the harsh light in the right side of the sky, which is not present in the water.
Thank you for...

To Waylim: also tempted

I must admit that I sometimes do the same, and was tempted on this one as well.

To Kris_Luxenhofer: yes Im pretty happy myself

Yes It is really a nice camera and lens, but I am wondering if I should have paid a little more and got the 5D instead, full frame would really suit this lens as the wide isn't really wide on the...
