    Just a couple of shots that I wanted to share.

    In my defence, if these are heaps whack, I'm editing them on my dad's laptop which is NOT made for editing. :Paranoid:

    It was really more of a test for the Sirui tripod and the Haida filter. Both did very well! I'm very pleased. :)

    I still have a couple more days here. Hopefully I can get a few more shots. Heaps of touristy shots and family pics though.

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Manila. Same reasons as you.

    #3 is Tinago Falls in Iligan (birth place). Down in Mindanao.
    Not easy to find cause it's more of a local area. Get a nice guide and you'll be right though.:thumbup:

    Both on the list for my next visit! (parents are moving here so I can visit pretty much once a year at ease :thumbup:)

    I'd love to see Bohol, everyone I know who's been there can't say bad things. Plus the monkeys! :p

    according to my folks, bohol was recently hit hard by earthquake so the chocolate hills now have cracks :lol:

    I was in Palawan last year, highly recommended :thumbup:

    Thanks for Tinago falls. fitting name (hidden falls)

    Isn't that a dangerous area?

    Not really but it's always good to just exercise some caution, I'm lucky enough to have family around the area so they took us there.

    If I didn't have family there and I wanted to really visit, I'd try and get a guide sorted beforehand who was willing.
    I don't know how to write this without being rude but the area is heavily Muslim populated and that's the reason for why they say it's dangerous.
    We had 3 Caucasian people with us (my gf, my sis' by and a friend) and we were fine.
    Unless you meant Mindanao as a whole? In which case, it's a 50/50.

    Oh, and there are 450 rather deep steps to get down to the bottom which is fine... until you have to go back up! :Paranoid:

    Some great shots, my mum is from Cebu but the family is in Manila so when she visits I usually don't go.

    Only shot I'd have liked to see something different is the third one, would have loved a composite shot of the kids in the water and then a second exposure for the waterfall and then blend them together.
