    Hello everyone,

    A few months ago I've been in Bali and Java, these are some of my favorite shots.

    That is called Silat, a martial art from Indonesia. The place was the pool of a beautiful villa in the middle of Bali.

    Thanks everybody!

    That's Candi Borobudur in Central Java.

    Prambanan is another nice one in the area.

    oloap, your Bromo Semeru photo brought back memories of my youth as I've been to the top of the latter. And it has got to be the best photo of them.

    Thank you.

    Again, thanks everyone and the admin for featuring the thread. :)
    Yes it's Borobudur, one of the greatest Buddhist temple in the world.

    I make a little digression. Usually I travel with two bodies, but this time I was there with just one, because around noon I went there to visit the temple and understand what equipment I needed for the afternoon shooting. So for the sunset I was with just one OM-D and the 7-14.

    After the first shot this is what happened to the shutter curtain:

    IMG_0302.

    I was lucky the first shot was good enough, but I lost all other opportunities. :dash2:

    Lesson learned: never travel with just one body when you're far from home, you never know what can happen.
