    They call this place the land of 1000 smiles.

    Countless numbers of shifty salesman, dubious drivers and tempting transgenders making their living from the hordes of compulsive consumers can cause instant insanity.

    But to escape this madness one just needs to take a few steps back, take a deep breath and observe the little details. The sincerity of a Thai greeting, the serenity of the endless islets that come and go as you sail the sea and the feasts prepared in front of your eyes on the street. These are just some of the simple pleasures that can be found in abundance.

    It is only through these that the true spirit of the country manifests; the people and culture begin to shine through and the real meaning to the title start to become apparent.

    I'm pretty sure it's film.

    EDIT: Always enjoy your work OP.

    I really like this album man... The first 5 shots really flow well together and are all strong individually to me. #6 feels a bit redundant with #5 there. The rest of the shots are okay but I don't find most of them as strong as the initial few. I do like #10, and #13 I think is stellar. Thanks for sharing!

    Had to have a chuckle at this :lol:

    I like #10 lots and that last shot is very cool.

    Imo, berek's opinion is still valid even if it's not accurate wrt whether it was digital or not -

    1 and 2 aren't doing anything for me, I quite like the rest - the colours seem out though (I struggle with similar looking WB when I do my ghetto negative -> digital scans)

    ps. not implying your process is ghetto, but mine certainly is
