    Hi Victor,
    Beautiful scenes. Shot no 1 you need to check the level. No 2 you seem to have the wrong white balance and exposure also needs attention.

    I still have to concentrate hard to keep the camera level. Maybe that is why Nikon now has an artificial horizon built into some cameras. (Keep it level)

    I'm envious... it looks like a wonderful way to see the country
    And while I'm enjoying the adventure and escape in all of your photos, I think this is my favourite from your collection so far

    I especially like the way the bike in the foreground leads my eye to the wonderful curves in the road behind. The dappled sunshine highlighting your fender and tyre also draw my eye in. Just the red bin to the left that distracts the eye a little.

    Gateway to the Tinongchol burial cave. Kabayan , Benguet province.

    ( This place is also known for its well-preserved mummies. Allegedly around 30yrs ago, some caucasians masquerading as anthropologists gained access and stole some mummies. The pilfered mummies were later displayed at a private museum and luckily, a guest recognized them and informed the authorities. Twas returned back to its rightful burial grounds in Kabayan. )

    Re: Bike tours

    When I was stationed in the Philippines. I was friends with a married Flipino couple who had a car and who were interested in showing me the backroads and interesting sights of Luzon. Your images bring back memories of many happy days with my friends. However, I think touring on a bike would be even more interesting...

    I almost said "would have been more fun" but, my various trips throughout Luzon, specially on the Bataan Peninsula and to the island of Corrigedor were enjoyable but were emotionally charged. I visited Mount Samat and followed the route of the "Bataan Death March" and felt very close to the Filipinos and Americans who fought and died there during early 1942...
