    Here are some shots taken on travel in Bhutan. I really want to improve my skills in order to capture photos of people in their natural environment.

    I posted in the travel section but didn't get much feedback. Constructive comments welcomed!

  2. These are lovely shots....What lens did you use...Do you ask these people before you take a picture of them?

    Thanks, Arnie!

    I should have mentioned that almost all of these were taken with the D200 and the 24-120 VR.

    Yes, I smile and hold up my camera, thereby asking permission to photograph them.

    Nice shots - I really like #1 and #3. It's just something about seeing people behind a chicken fence that makes my skin crawl though :) Nice composition in #4 too.

    Very nice shots. #1 is my favorite of the group. It really sets the location.

    Thank you for commenting! #3 was at medium sized nunnery up in the mountains. The chicken wire served as the window and window screen!
    Accommodations were very basic.

    #4 - the light from the exterior was nice!

    Thank you! I like that one too! Somehow the main figure evokes the peacefulness of Buddhism and I like the younger monk looking at the main figure.
