Whoah. These are the type of images we long to see here in the forum. The use of the LB is excellent. The boy in no2 is excellent, so are the fakirs (or whatever they are) in 3 and 4. Must be faved.

Would you mind giving some info on lens, aperture and camera? Are these shot with a FF camera? To me it looks not-APS size sensor, but I may be wrong. I am considering an FF myself, so I would like to know how the LB works on that. Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Did I say that these images are geourgeous! I like them, love them, adore them!

Whoah, whoah, whoah!!! Please post more!!!

I agree with Bjorn -- this is a nice series, with great contrasts in the B&W.

Wonderful set of images and perfect for the LB.

These are the best Thaipusam photographs I've seen. Usually they are very colourful, because to Western eyes the brilliant colours of the devotees' clothes and costumes are irresistible. But you don't have Western eyes, and so you have not made that mistake.

Really a superb set of images, of which the first and the last are the most powerful for me.

Thanks guys for your kind comments. This was shot early this year but I found time only recently to process.

Bjorn, I used a D300, LB 2.0 and aperture 2.0 and 2.8 plus macro filter for close up. The rest are just bending to achieve the effects.

I think the advantage of FF comes in during composition and focusing as shooting moving subjects require lots of concentration.

Very interesting series - journalistic and artistic at the same time. As others have said, #2 is great - the focus on the boys eyes is enchanting.

Wow! This is what I aspire to. This is a masterful use of LB. Love the post processing. Would love to know what settings you used.
