Cambodia by lux69aeterna Cambodia by lux69aeterna
At work this morning on the way back from Tonlé Sap lake to Siem Reap, Cambodia. We stopped in a little village where very few tourists go. As usual, all children come out and say "Hello", full of smiles and tenderness.

Shot by one of my clients, Christopher Hachat.

Merci beaucoup Nicolas! En fait j'y ai travaille comme guide pendant deux ans en combinaison avec le Vietnam :) Le pays me manque beaucoup... :( Surtout les gens!

Tu devras vraiment y aller, tu adoreras. Et le Myanmar doit etre tout autant magistral :)

Bonne journee!

Lol, i didn't of this when i replied your poetry :) Now you make me think of an ex gf that found ot sexy when i turned pages of a book :p

When you imagine routined couples, reading their book in bed... Always good if the man turns the pages well :D

Thank you, but it is night already in Cambodia :p Just passed midnight :)

She never told you? that she loved your hands? She tried. :hug:

LOL...yes. It is always a good thing if the man is a good page turner in bed.
That makes me smile.

You are welcome. And ohhh...:o. you are twelve hours different, I see.
Well. I hope you have a wonderful night...turning book pages. :)
lol...teasing...

Oh yes, she told me... About 10 years ago, and heard it more since then... But still, it just makes me smile.

Yes, sure, i just imagine those bored couples in bed... Sad... Then, compared to the bored couple, but WITH a good page turner :D Yes, just my crazy mind at work... At this time of the day/night, i see jokes and funny situations everywhere :)

Oh, yeah! I am glad she told you. You do have nice hands. :D
Smiling is a good thing.

Bored is never a good thing WITHOUT a good page turner. lol...I'm giggling. And it is midday for me. But I know what you mean about funny jokes everywhere.

Oh, I have heard some ladies can be very good at turning pages too. ;p

A bit like your writing said, or like my my minds' telling me, beautiful hands that can do nothing is boring though :)

Well, i never want to have such a boring life... I'd prefer to be alone than like that... But on the other hand, when would you have time to read a good book?

Hmmm... then the pretty female page turner will have to have a nice facial expression in addition for me. Otherwise, wouldn't have much effect on me :)

humm...yes. You are right.

...for me, I like hands, but I imagine them like my writing said. BUT I don't give in to my imagination and make it reality. Many times, the beautiful hands do nothing. ...sad. So the imagination is better.

Also. I must have a man that is interesting. And funny and smart. And other things, but...such a man could then have ugly (beautiful) hands, and I would be happy.

You wish for a pretty girl? lol...:lol: men. so predictable. :hug:

You could have pretty hands, but those could be clumsy or not doing the movements like you'd want to. Like holding hands... Doesn't happen much when it is done with the right pressure and perfect placement...

Of course, i imagine hands ain't the most important, it might be just a plus :)

I don't even remember i did say, but yes of course, everybody wants a pretty girl. Don't you want a pretty man? Not the most important, but when you think about the future ex bf or gf, of course you imagine prettiness :p

Really? :p Favourite of all? For me it is sad we can't see the towers of Angkor Wat clearly... In a large 1m long print it would be much more visible :)

I meant this is my favorite out of all those others of the children. Mostly because they look happier.

Ah yeah :p Cambodian kids are indeed usually all smiles and fun... But in the temples they think to make more money by looking sad... As i went about 45 times in 9 different temples i knew many of them, and when they were trying to sell things to my clients with a sad look it was my hobby to make them smile :) To show they're not that sad at all!

Dank je Dennis :)

De persoon die ze getrokken heeft heeft me wat getoond met lagen, een foto dupliceren en dan samenzetten. Al vergeten hoe het moet, maar dat heb'k gedaan met deze foto.

De 2& zijn nu vertrokken en kblijf alleen achter... Hmmm, lastig als je een hele toffe groep hebt gehad.

Wil je zeggen dat deze twee foto's een compositie is van twee verschillende? Als ik wat beter kijk lijkt de scherpte waar jij staat totaal verschillend met de kinderen naast je.

:iconlux69aeterna:
lux69aeterna Featured By Owner May 7, 2009   Photographer
Neen, ik heb dus ene in sepia gemaakt, en die kerel zei da'k ook de kleurenversie kon mixen met de sepia. Dan kan je bvb zeggen dat de sepia voor 70% doorweegt en dan heb je toch wat kleur dat erbij komt.

Nu je over scherpte spreekt, kdenk niet dat ik die heb verscherpt...

Op die manier, doe ik soms ook met bepaalde foto's om detail terug te halen in een foto, vooral bij HDR bewerkingen om de lucht zo veel mogelijk terug te halen, "Faith will be there..." is daar een voorbeeld van, daar trok de lucht op niets in de eerste versie. Maar je kan het evengoed doen om kleur ed te bepalen, had ik nog niet aan gedacht.

Om eerlijk te zijn, ik zal deze techniek niet gebruiken... Spelen met lagen vind ik "te veel". Maybe one day... :)

Het is idd een hoop werk, ik heb ooit als eens een foto bewerkt die uit niet minder dan 40 lagen bestond, ik heb bij die foto een hoop elementen moeten zien weg te werken zoals mensen en in de achtergrond, ik ben er wel eventjes zoet mee geweest. :D
Maar over het algemeen werk ik ook vrij weinig met lagen en dus enkel wanneer het aangewezen is.
