[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is in Wat Yai Chaya Mongkol (The Great Temple of Auspicious Victory).

I tried to have a cropped visage in foreground and the other statues in background, played with the depth of field from foreground to background in a simple camera exercise.

Stone statue textures can be appreciated nicely thanks to the sharpness in foreground and the vertical direct sun...

Hello Galder Jon

It is a very comprehensive work that you propose here.
Note that both the quality of your photo.
The POV is excellent and the face of the statue in a very good focus.
The details are striking.
Dof also perfect, and I like this line and this perspective in bg. The yellow just reinforces this aspect.
The light management is very good.
You show a real work of photographer.

sincerely, bravo

Hi Galder,

So interesting that I do have an almost identical analog print of your posting. The textured face of the deity's statue is well placed in the frame, and the yellow saffron robe of the others statues beyond provide a good contrast and color. I love Ayutthaya and wish to return. My best regards.


Olá Galder
Beautiful composition, since the image reference of focus in the face of the deity on one side of the picture and that which gives a special emphasis on this face and its texture.
Excellent work.

Hi Galder Jon,

This is very well done, it appears as if the foreground statue is watching over the others. Superb sharpness on the foreground statue, with excellent use of shallow DOF. The repetition is well seen.

Best regards,

Hello Galder,

Smart composition and DOF to enhance the colorful perspective with the focus on the the foreground statue.

Well done!

Hi Galder, superb composition and sharpness. Great idea and well executed. I wll try to copy this idea.
