These are some of my street/doc photos I tool in Burma last month. I haven't processed them all yet in LR, but I'll add them as I go. C&C welcome. Some of them will probably be more travel-themed than "street", for obvious reasons.

Suppose I should start off with the standard monk shot....

These are very impressive images indeed Neil. As standard as it may be, the monk shot still works well. The second image is even better, I like it's leading lines.

Thanks for your comments!

I had a fever there for a few days so didn't complete my rough itinerary. That means I have to go back!

I've been living/traveling around Asia for over 10 years now, and I've never seen so much devotion or presence of religion as that I witnessed in Burma. Anyway, the antidote to monks are nuns:

Some wonderful images kimchi. My favourite is the first image, the way the faces are lit by the light. As Bjorn said, it might be a "standard" image, but I like it. Thanks for posting.
