This is #7 of 101 digital imaging tips I plan to post here over the next few months. Stay tuned.
Today's tip (from Thailand): Shoot at an angle and create a sense of depth in your images.
These two HDR images (Nik Software's HDR Efex Pro), which I made today Chiang Mai, Thailand (after a 36-hour door-to-door trip from NY), have a good sense of depth because I shot at angle angle – and because everything in the scene is in focus.
To get max depth-of-field: use a wide-angle lens, set a small aperture and focus one-third into the scene.
My gear for these shots: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 14mm lens. See all my gear here.

Planning a trip to Thailand (and Cambodia and Laos - next stops on our photo tour), work with one of the best tour operators I know: Travel Link.
Our guide in Thailand is a wealth of info: Mr. Mike, a.k.a. Crocodile Mike: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Capt. Jack always says, "Don't ya just love it."
Explore the light – and enjoy the Pad Thai :-)
