Daily Photos - Part 13

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Sometimes there is. I used to organize photowalks but just got too busy to keep it up. A few others have tried from time to time as well.

I am considering organizing one in April sometime. Not sure when other than it'll be on a Sunday and will be somewhere easily reachable to MRT.

hi craig, if you do, let me know, id love to meet up with some folks, have a great time, share pointers of places and people to shoot!

i also wanted to ask where you guys buy camera gear in Taiwan...im looking to upgrade lenses but all the stores i check out have SIGNIFICANTLY higher prices than the states...when adorama or other authorized retailers offer deals, it makes me want to cry because im not in the US to cash in on them.

also, are there places to sell gear? if I do upgrade lenses, i could do away with the stuff i wont be using. thanks for any tips!

How did you get the surroundings motion blurred? Shouldn't they have come up sharper?

Adobe released Lightroom 4 a couple of days ago. I upgraded straight away (only US$79 to upgrade or US$149 full) but have been to busy to do much with it. Had a couple of spare hours tonight so played around a bit.

@cfimages, not really used lightroom in my workflow but, I'm tempted. The control it gives you is superb.

Here is another of my tilt shift images. This one is from Taroko.
