I took these 2 pics while walking about my area.. For the 1st pic, I wanted to bring out the theme, Buddhism.. For the 2nd, its about remembering our roots no matter who we are.. Would appreciate any C&C as to whether these 2 pictures work for u guys and how I can improve. Thanks

1) Seeking Enlightenment


2) Remembering Our Roots(Singapore)

if it is a monk I think it suit better for your theme, or else it seems like just normal yoga or mediation to me.

Nothing int the pic that links to any Buddhism contents. Neither the man or the surrounding that shows Buddhism.

allow me to comments if you dun mind......

Both pictures do not have anything related or any subject pointed toward the religion.
To me as i read the photos.......

#1, is just a man resting or having his breathing exercise after his morning Qigong or Tai-chi
practise.

#2, seem like he is singing our Singapore nationa anthem....may be is our national day. the flag behind tells it.

you may wish to try out taking photo in our local temples which have more element that can leads you to the title or theme you wish to express it out.
;)

Content does not relate to title.
Meditation does not mean that the person has to be Buddhist either.

Could be falun-gong too.

Thanks for the feedbacks jesser and xray!:) I know the concept isn't that well brought out.. Will research more for my future shoots..

Actually I rather like the idea of meditation (Note the lotus position) outside of the context of a temple. The contrast can be rather interesting and unique. But agree with the rest that there is something there...just not really there just yet.
