First Batch of Retreat Pix

Sorry everyone that these took some time. There were about 500 shots (not including KL’s & KW’s which I will also batch except for a few more selected for hand-processing) and while most were going to be batch-processed, these few however, I felt would need a bit of hand-processing. Most shot with my lovely 70-200 f2.8 lens or my wife’s 100mm 2.8 macro. Individually tweaked, fixed, cleaned-up and processed.

All shots manual exposure, manual white-balance (daylight or cloudy) – Thanks Louis – it’s actually faster. Yup, less is more, manual is faster and all that! Lots more use of highlight and shadows (in terms of light angles) and back-light!

My favorite of the action series!

    I can’t help but remember vaguely that I have been there before, sometime way way way way back…

    Me too! The last time I was there was back in August 2000. Hmm, did you sign the guest book? Anyways, I was only looking for our names.

    Where can I donate to support Japan?
    I am just so sad about what took place in Japan with the earthquake plus tsunami and I really need to assist them through donation.

    Does any person find out a web site or anything which you could donate to assist Japan?
