A quiet corner, on a warm Spring day, at Beopjusa Buddhist Temple. I've done some burning & dodging. The blue skylight reflections, the people with their children & the greenery of Spring all appealed to me here.

Hi Chris ,

A wonderful scenic place with right chosen POV,
the framing is very nice covering both sides with big stones
with green branches of trees,the light and shades are superb
the sharpness is very nice and you controlled the exposure in
burning and dodging very well,a very bright and green with great light scenic presentation of this temple.

Have a nice w/e,

Hi, Chris. Nice photo and good exposure in a tricky lighting situation. Good sharpness, colors, contrast and composition. The figures give a scale to the photo. Cheers and TFS>

Hi Chris,

I like the view, snaking around the fg rocks and up the stream. The colors are beautiful and the people add a nice human touch. The only thing that I might change is to not burn-in the sky so deeply. IMO it's just a tad too dark.

Have a nice weekend.


Hello Chris,

Very good POV to capture this beautiful scene.
Excellent sharpness and light and colors tones.

Best regards,


I saw some nice photos in your gallery, but this one (sorry to say) is not such a good one, there is a lot of over-exposure and I really do not understand why the other members who critiqued the photo do not mention it ? It's hard to see what people are doing in the river. Once again, do not take it personnal, it's only my vision.

regards from Pat.

Hello Chris,

Hello Chris,
]]Wonderful green tones and very good lighting and contrast.
Congratulations and TFS

Hi Chris,
A wonderful place vith Good colours, POV, light and excellent minimal composition.TFS.


Hello Chris,

A fine capture revealing the close interaction between light and shadows.
I like how your pov guides the eyes between the framing boulders, guiding nicely towards the focal images.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
