Spectacular ! What happens with the ballon, does it just land anywhere?

Chris Bing replies: Hi Christiane, thanks for viewing. Yes the balloon goes anywhere. One crashed into the amusement park, the pirate ship, one into the crowd (see Blog) and one into the power lines. I tell the Burmese they are crazy. And they just laugh!

Striking images Chris. Particularly the second pic from the POV of firing up the balloon - magic and dynamic. Good to see you uploading images again.

Chris Bing replies: Thanks Jon, I do like to get up close and personal.....

great colours and dramatic images Chris I think you got away with out having permanent damage done to yourself and these guys are realy playing with fire hope they prayers come true.

Chris Bing replies: Thanks Brent it didn't feel dangerous at the time. A bit like attending a bomb fire. But if an accident did occur and the fireworks exploded in front of me it would be a bit like being on White Island.

Must admit you write a decent travel blog,I know what you could do if you retire, travel the world blogging to the masses while I take the pictures for your articles,if only.I believe your images have captured the tango in its many facets the strength ,intensity the bond between the dancers the flow of movements and of course the sexual tension that seems to ooze out to those watching thanks for sharing.

Chris Bing replies: Thanks Brent, I'm happy to show your images as you are a very good photographer, but you will have to write your own blog as the story comes from the heart!

well its clear you are enjoying the g9 personally i like your full frame images theres just something about nikon and pentax i like

Chris Bing replies: Thanks Brent, I do love the G9 and I have become a Lumix Fanboy. To me the main killer features of the camera are dual body stabilisation and the ability to use long telephotos in small lenses. However I do agree with your comments. Shooting full frame gives the image a better perspective (noticed I didn't say less depth of field) and having a much larger sensor provides greater depth of colour. Personally i do prefer my photostudies done with my full frame cameras . The images have a certain "Je ne sai quoi" that can't be achieved with the micro 4/3rd format. However I am not prepared to take the size and weight of a full frame system wherever I go but I can take the 4/3rd system. And if something special does turn up the camera is capable of getting reasonable shots as you can see on the website. The cell phone or 1 inch sensor cameras are not good enough.Its all about control.
