ChangMai Trip


1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
Composure, technique and others

2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
Hoping to get that royal feel of a temple nwith the gold and red colour effect

3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Picture was taken in the early morning (8am-9am), at a temple in changmai high mountain.

Shuttle: 1/1000
Aperture: f/4Focal
length: 5mm
ISO: 80
Exposure: Manual Mode

4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
The bronze and red Colour blends in well in the picture (IMHO)

The exposure of the image seems ok but the composition can be improved. The subject of the image is the buddha i presume? If so, the DOF is too wide, not blurring the background sufficiently to provide seperation. Perhaps you would want to show more of the buddha to add more "gold" colour to your image, i think it will help to enhance the royal feel that you were trying to portray.

the photo actually have a very nice texture and colours and having a swallow dof will take away more from the photo than helping it.

What you can do is experiment more on the angles and try to find harmony and geometry in the photo.

It is in my opinion this is quite a decent photo. Just a little bit more for impact.
