  1. I just found Aurora HDR 2018 and I like the way you work with that program. You can work with Adjustment Layers and add Filters to each Layer. You can also add Image Layers. All Filters have a lot of sliders to adjust it just the way you want. And for each Layer you can adjust Opacity from 0 to 100%. You have Plugins from Photoshop and Lightroom. I have used the HDR-functions in Photoshop and Lightroom, used HDR Efex Pro and Photomatix Pro but for me, I now got much better control in this Aurora HDR 1800. Before it was only working in Mac but now they have a version also for Windows. You can find tutorials in Youtube made by Trey Ratcliff, Serge Ramelli and others. So what software do you use for HDR? (Yes, I know that many don't like HDR but we don't need that discussion here, please)

    Found a temple I have not seen before on the hw1178 going towards Doi Ang Khan. A little bit Burmese style. Name of the temple is Wat Phra That Doi Mon Ching. Great views from there. Link to Google Maps

  6. Yes, very interesting and many beautiful photos! Thank you very much. Here in http://mkcrtour.com you can read more about Chiang Rai and see if you have missed some interesting places that you can visit next time!
  7. Up here in the north 15-20 % have no license plates so even if they are captured by camera they get away. In Europe all vehicles have their light on when on the road. Here I see school buses with no light in very thick fog and also quite late in the evening. Yes, police must start working, that is the biggest problem.
  8. A smart (Swedish) man said once: Don't invest more in Thailand than you can leave with a smile!

  12. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    Sea ice increases in Antarctica do not make up for the accelerated Arctic sea ice loss of the last decades, a new NASA study finds. As a whole, the planet has been shedding sea ice at an average annual rate of 13,500 square miles (35,000 square kilometers) since 1979, the equivalent of losing an area of sea ice larger than the state of Maryland every year. “Even though Antarctic sea ice reached a new record maximum this past September, global sea ice is still decreasing,” said Claire Parkinson, author of the study and climate scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “That’s because the decreases in Arctic sea ice far exceed the increases in Antarctic sea ice.” NASA Study Shows Global Sea Ice Diminishing, Despite Antarctic Gains

  14. So who is going to use these fantastic things? I never see any police on or on the side of the road. Put a couple of police at a traffic light and they can take at least 100 people going through red light within 10 minutes.. So far after 15 years I haven't seen one person get caught crossing red light.
