The Explosion of Kids in Indonesia

I was absolutely deluged by kids that had never seen a white person in person before.  After the sunrise, when I was pretty much alone, a bus pulled up from a remote part of Java and tons of kinds poured out and started running all over the temple.  All of them wanted their picture taken with me, as if I was some sort of goofy Baluga that had washed up on the temple steps.  They were all very happy and fun, so I asked them to sit on the corner of Borobudur for a group shot.

    Thanks – I think the symbol means “I love you” – at least that is the opinion on the Flickr

    I’ve got to ask. How on earth do you get such depth in your photos. Is this HDR? If so how did you get them to stay still long enough?

    This is a single-frame HDR – but I did not HDR the kids – I masked them in from one the RAW. I describe the technique a bit in the tutorial at http://stuckincustoms.com/2006/06/06/548/
