Honestly, going to Thailand and ending up taking pictures in black and white is the stupidest idea possible!!It is like some stupid idiot who would decide to still watch a black and white TV today when there are now only color TVs available, not to mention 1080p color TVs!!
More, these pictures would be SO MUCH BETTER IN COLOR!!!
There is this false idea (most of the time even snobbish, falsely "hip" idea) that quality pictures ought to be in black and white! Wrong!! It is much worse when a good picture is in black and white than if it would have been in color.Why? We live in a world full of colors, WE DO NOT LIVE IN A WORLD THAT IS BLACK AND WHITE!!!!!!
When I see black and white pictures from a photographer, I think to myself "another idiot who thinks he wants to pretend being an "artistic photographer" by using black and white pictures instead of color pictures!!!"
Thanks for sharing anyway these pictures but I stopped watching them as soon as I saw that they were in B&W!!
Many thanks for sharing your amazing picture with us and for being so kind as to answer my question concerning the location.
What is the location of this beautiful morning sun? Thanks.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
By the way, what is the name of this flower?
Where are these children from? Where was this picture taken?
An important picture to remind us that it is a long way before many parts of the world reach the standard of living that we take for granted in Western countries such as the USA or Europe.
It is always painful to see children suffer.
I do not know the fascination people have with black and white pictures, as if they would be better artistically than ones in color when it is surely not the case. The truth is that we live in a world that is only in colors, NOT in black and white. Therefore, to create pictures in black and white is simply pointless in many ways.
I would much have preferred this picture to be in color. For me, it would have enhanced it in many ways. Especially considering the interaction of light with other parts in this picture that is basically completely erased when you shoot the picture in black and white.
Thanks for sharing this picture.
But despite the title that you associated with this picture, I am still left wondering what is the connection between "30s of Waterfollies" and this house and where is this house located?
One word: AMAZING!! I love the sharpness of this picture. Thanks for sharing it with us.
BUT where is it located? The location information should always be clearly stated.
What is the location of this picture?
It would be great to know where you took this picture. Thanks for sharing this great picture with us.
Without the head on the moon, it would have been perfect. With this head, it is completely wasted!
map1273, thanks for sharing your great picture.
I would be interesting to make a comment on where you took this picture.
Note: I did read that the pictures should be in black and white but why that?!
Why in black and white?What on earth is so "beautiful" or fashionable to show pictures in black and white?I will NEVER EVER understand the appeal many people have for black and white pictures!
We live in a world that is in color. Black and white pictures is like having to watch TV in black and white when you can see it in 1080p high-definition and color!!
In color, this picture would have been special. In black and white, it is dull or should I say "killed" by being in black and white!!
Cool picture. Thanks for sharing it with us.
In color, it would have been great. In black and white, it is not great at all!!!
I cannot understand this kind of worship for black and white!! It is like if we would be asked to watch a movie in black and white instead of watching it in 1080p HD color!! That is how bad black and white is for pictures!! Black and white photography is for snobs and fashion divas, not for people who appreciate photography!!
Well, that is only my point of view, you are entitled to yours too.
And to put a black and white picture at 1st place is another indication of this crazy worship for black and white!
It is NOT a wood duck!! It is a Mandarin duck, male and female!! Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck
What makes a picture beautiful, special is the way it captures a particular moment. This picture is a good example.
Cute little girl enjoying being with her father. Simple yet beautiful.
Thanks for sharing this picture with us.
