Hi Chris,

A good contribution to the Friday's theme, the point of view is showing the détails and colours of the chinese lanterns. The surrounding light is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

Hi Chris,
Very colorful and I like that you captured the people also. I hpe you did some close ups as well.

Hello Chris

A great view that is tack sharp. I like the lanterns. Are these lanterns for sale? A treat fot the eyes for sure. Nice


Hi Chris,

Interesting shot of coloured lanterns and a fitting entry to this weeks theme. You did well to capture the intricate details in the low light with the slow shutter. I like the way the lanterns seem to all blend into one as they recede into the background.

A sea of light! Beautiful colorful lanterns, perfect realization of the theme

Hello Chris, a good choice for the theme, with such a range of colours.From your PoV they become as one, as we look along the room.
Well managed light, in what would appear to be a rather dark room, if not for the lamps.
They look like fabric covered lights, am I right?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Chris,excellent contribution.Love those lanterns but also the ceiling where its visible.Friendly regards,Otto.

Hi Chris, I liked that you did not use your flash or a higher ISO,it made the lanters be the real focus of this scene & not the shoppers or the stores interior,just the colourful illumination of the lanterns,well taken IMHO.Good fit for this weeks theme.

Very nicely done Chris, a difficult exposure well handled.
The bright lanterns are perfectly exposed, and you captured lots of detail in the dark ceiling.
A very good addition to the theme.

Wow! Beautiful and colorful lanterns! Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. Love their colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Chris,

In the old times, such lanterns were made using colorful rice paper which was prone to high humidity so waxing had to be used. But now I guess they use plastics?? Or any other synthethic materials. It's a lovely shot with very colorful objects. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards.
