Aesthetically nice patterns, but what would really make the pic stand out is something ->outstanding<- in the midst of it all.

Perhaps a baby carving of reddish wood colour (plus the usual rules of 1/3 placing of it amidst the palms, etc). Aiyah, any outstanding object. It's just like taking a very nice patterned set of repeated windows, and then have one guy look out -- that kind of effect.

Otherwise (um, personal opinion hor...no offense) no subject, no object, and focus of attention is such that the viewer's eyes will roam everywhere.

Thanks for your comments. I agree with what you've said, but doing anything at all to the subject of the picture would be quite disrespectful. I'll explain:

The picture is part of a "Qian Shou Fo" - a Buddha with a thousand hands. On each palm there is an eye, if you take a closer look. It was taken at the Temple of 10000 Buddhas in HK. The statue was still infinished at the time of taking.

Here's another angle of view, and the actual statue of the Buddha:

The fact that you have some emotional response to my photograph has made it a success, I guess.

Thanks!
