Here are a few photo's taken in Bangkok towards the end of December 2011 and February 2012.  All of these images were shot in RAW with a Canon EOS 50D and post processed in Lightroom 3.  I purchased a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HMS lens to use for low light and nighttime photography.  I bought this lens to use without a tripod and to get closer to things as my 50mm was just to long on my cropped body.

These photo's were taken on a walk through the Soi Cowboy,they were all shot in aperture  priority mode.I kept my ISO down to 800 to keep the digital noise down.  The next job was to reduce the red glow from the peoples faces in Lightroom,  I do not know if I went too far.

These photo's were taken around Siam Square with the camera resting against lamp posts, benches and any solid object that was available because of the slow shutter speeds.  The Christmas tree and lights really lit up this area.

The last six images were taken in Suan Luang Rama XI (Rama 9 Park).  Suan Luang is the largest public park in Bangkok, its divided into six main areas around a large lake or reservoir.  This is a really nice place to spend an afternoon, the air is clean, there are lots of butterfly's, flowers and birds, there are many brides and grooms having their wedding photo's taken. The first two shots are of the royal pavilion,the last of a one legged common myna.
