you tried--and may not best in its class-a nice try--TAJ ALways needs Good CPL in bright Sun Light-you should underexpose and more depth of field.Taj reflects more -always remember.

But these Singphos are still in Assam-Arunachal border--such as Bordumsa.Digholi Syam Gaon,Lakwa in Sivasagar.So from 2nd week of FebruaryShapawng Yawng Manau Poi (31st) was organized --You can just read--https://www.timesofassam.com/social/singpho-festival-teaches-lessons-unity/ Singphos is designed to club the small but colorful community of the Singpho people scattered in India’s Arunachal Pradesh and Assam and across the world in parts of Myanmar and China.That means this tribe is not only Myanmar.Pl remember Ahom King Sukapha was coming from Unan Province China in1215AD.Asaam has still good number of Shyam ,Taiphake people.So Singphos has a relation with Kachin.

For your kind information Singphos are still leaving with their King near Margherita,Assam.If you come here--you can stay in Singpho Eco Lodge,Margherita,a small town near Arunachal State,India.Arunachal's border is with Burma/Myanmmar.Any more info pl feel free to write!

tim fisher46: The D800 is not a wise choice IMHO - I own one and a touring bike too. It can be knocked out of calibration.

I switched to the Sony Alpha 7R. It's so small and with prime lenses, it fits very easily into my bar-bag, always ready. Add a small off-camera flash and I'm producing a set of less than ordinary, "stock" images, which is what I view here.

Besides, getting to the heart of a culture rarely involves landscape work, it's the details, the interplay of Men, a more documentary approach would bring us closer, more time with the subject matters.

The images I view here could be achieved backpacking & taking side tours, so to me, the whole "cycling around the world" is taking precedent over the photography, such that these are stock / travel pictures, nothing more.

Furthermore, there as many people out there doing long trips, by bike or backpacking, such that the saleable value of these nice pictures is I believe rather limited.

Just my $0.01's worth.

Hmmm..Nico3d" Sorry - but the work looks 15+yrs old at best, and having been in the industry since the 90’s, I know I have seen the "exact same" images or better dozens of times."--not from my pen!But I wish the best for good work!

100% Made in Japan is not fault proof!I had once purchased SONY 7 megapixel camera at that time when first or 2nd batch of compacts were launched!That was made in Japan!I want to add one more thing from History that once German goods were taken 100% quality controlled, even a knife!& then Japanese goods were seen like 3rd class goods!After lot of hard working this nation has been growing to an electronic eye platform.But now Canon/Nikon/Fuji all should review their status and about their Nation's hounour,no doubt Korean companies like Samsung,Olympus all are rivals now!Germans or KOreans will rule one day in Electronic market?

Smile please!Ghosts inside means--Nikon is trying to get rid of errors and errors--but errors are coming again and again!--Dpreview giving above 90!I understand all Nikon d750s are not bad--but "Bad Boy" is there--bad boy is the errors,faults--NIKON has been updated from NIkon 610 to 800!What happened to NIkon I do not know but Our trust goes downward surely!When We buy a Expensive camera and if Nikon request us for free service again and again and where there are not a facility to get a service centre nearby--Camera will be a tension for us!We have many tensions in daily life and this will be extra!Either in Nikon or other camera makers--we want a faultless one!Camera can be a Ghost for us!!!Just think and laugh!Remember Fuji XT1 had also light leak issue!

My personal opinion is the above tour and pics are more than my life--since as a general these pics opened my eyes to an unknown world--we should not under estimate ones contribution to the world of photography and information through pics!

shutterbud: I like what I see. The ergonomics and increased build quality are the most important spects of this update to me. Although I bought an A6000 just this month, I plan on upgrading to FF in due course. After this model has been on sale for a year or so it is very likely I will buy one.
Now, Sony, PLEASE BRING OUT SOME MORE LENSES

yes,Sony should--Fuji is doing good and innovating a series of rouged lenses..and one thing must hear by Sony--that servicing--I remember that once a sony compact camera was more damaged by a servicing center--interestingly this servicing center was for TV repairing and Sony gave this address for repairing!Now I fear to buy Sony-;Canon Service mechanism is too not so good in some parts of India,You can not send a canon to Master Service Center--they have some collection points and from their only you can collect your camera after servicing--these servicing/collection points are may be not in your reach--;so there will be a communication problem to get your camera--we have no time to spend time after a camera;better to say Canon should refine them ,direct connection servicing center and Customer is needed-not through a collection point!2 yrs ago I have visited a Master Service Level 4 center New Delhi,there they couldn't find out the address of collection center point of Assam,India!

I have just seen the creations of Nicolas Marino-an Encyclopedia of different aspects o Life;some where he wrote he did not see TV more than 8 yrs--but his pictures are itself a British Library,More than a TV and proper documentation of life--from the Gold extractions in Africa in high temp like 55 degree -where camera switches get jammed though Pro-quality due to expansion in heat to the Roti wallas in India and old woman wearing a big reflected Spectacle to Etiopia's Green belt to Sahara to Post Processing of Images all are awesome--I request every DPR readers to go through these images --in Facebook,his personal blogs,flickr etc-to know our world better--how the Africans feel the people of UNITED STATES ETC--and how Egyptians spends a day through Smoking,Dominos etc--

Hope DPR will take us such amazing journeys -few yrs back I have met Dave en route to Tawang ,Arunachal Pradesh India--who later completed his journey through Bhutan to Nepal in search of Sambhala.

‘The trek back to the car a distance away in severe cold was a challenge,’ says Lukasz, who came down with pneumonia shortly afterwards. Sadly, Piotr later died. '----Photo by Lukasz Bozycki. Finalist, Mammals.--VERY SAD TO HEAR THAT >Piotr died!
Our message to Piotr's family and friends--so dedication for a photograph fighting with bitter cold which took his life!

Photo by Lukasz Bozycki pics is indeed difficult--true hero!Sice they adjusted many things--White Balance,may be they tested the supirior position of their flash and LED lights,angle of lens,right exposure settings etc--in bitter cold to change all these things to do @ almost zero temperature is not so easy--camera,tripods may go too cold to touch!Great!So--above all controversy my hats off!
