    These look pretty good at 3200 John, didn't think you'd get that out of the D300.

    #4 is my favourite (from a photographic and compositional perspective :))

    Basically because of where they are standing. There is one side street off of Soi Bangla in Patong that is known as "Soi Katoey", "soi" is sidestreet or alley, "katoey" is ladyboy.

    It just so happens that my favourite bar is the Original Shipwreck in Soi Bangla, right opposite where the boys put on their show for the tourists. All of these shots were taken while I was sitting in the Shipwreck.

    I suppose it's a matter of taste, but I'm not sure they would look (pretty) good in broad daylight :D.
