Rice Terraces

I started the process of going though our worthwhile pictures that were taken in the rice fields of Ping’an and thought I would post a couple up before I put together a little trip report page for that area. This area is simply a photographers dream. Not only is it quite and completely distanced from the crowds in China, it is also a place where you could find one spot in the rice terraces and set up your camera 365 times throughout the year, and always come away with a completely new shot depending on the season, irrigation, weather, time of day, and slight angle variances of each shot. If you are ever in the Guilin area and have an interest in amazing scenery or photography, do not pass this area up!

The clouds never left us and we were drenched a few times, but I think the clouds provide a neat backdrop in the pictures I am starting to work on-

  1. I really like the first one. It feels exotic and mysterious.

    Thank you! I was testing out the Nik Software Suite for the first time on that photo and I am actually blown away by the potential of this software and how easy it is to use. I would give the trials a gander if you haven’t already, not that your shots need any help, just neat to click a button and see an entirely new path to take your processing of each photo down.
