But, I thought Shangrila (Shangri-La) was a mythical Himalayan place of perfection.

Where is this Shangrila you photographed?
It obviously is not mythical.

Shangrila is a mythical place, located somewhere in Himalayan area. For Chinese, they claimed that the location is between Yunnan and Tibet where the Himalayan mountains set as the natural boundaries. The nature and sceneries are awesome to view. Any way, I didn't get any chance traveling away from Zhongdian to the mountain area where Chinese named that Shangrila. But, the pictures I took was not too far away from the area. I'm glad that you enjoyed them. Thanks for cheering.

I really enjoyed reading the article. I totally agreed with the author regard Shangrila. Bhutan and Tibet are the 2 places that I've not been. Also, a place called " Leh ", in India, can be sorted into that Shangrila as well.

Did you use a fish eye for some of those or an ulta-wide lens. I don't have an ultra-wide lens yet, but some of those look a little bit more fish eye. Great perspectives.

Well, I did use the extremely wide angle lenses.

I used Canon EF 14 F2.8L II, 24 F1.4L II, and 17 TSE ( the newest tilt-shift lense ). The last 2 lenses are the best Canon wided angle lenses, I've seen. In fact, the quaility can match Nikon nano lenses. I didn't do much processing at all. The lense's quality revealed itself.

I enjoyed them all very much, thanks for sharing. These photos make me want to travel, but my newborn has changed my travel plans for the next few years. Looks like I will be visiting theme park destinations rather than exotic places.

you should visit the place while your physical is capable of doing so.It was just 4 years after my last visit. I already felt the downhill physicals. The area is quite high altitude ( between 2000-4500 meters above the sea level ). Many people who joined my group were sick along the trip. Tibet and Leh ( India ) will be my upcoming destination before I can't make it. When your children grows up, get any chance traveling to these places. Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
