Not a bad shot, this one, Peter. I like the angle and the monk in the doorway is a very important part of this shot (gives us a second point of interest as well as giving us a sense of scale). I also like the woods directly behind the temple. Good work, Peter! BTW: Did you take any pictures of the monks? Monks are always good subjects...make friends with them (I bet they want to practice their English) and shoot away![+]

Nice. The bird really makes the shot for me. The buildings, in different parts of the frame, also give the shot a special feeling. Good job as well on the exposure...nothing is blown which is hard to do in such a situation. Well done!

WOW...this is SO COOL! I will have to get down to North Korea myself...it looks like a whole different world! Anyway, lovely use of wide angle and the lines and repetitive patterns are great. What I like the most, though, is the propaganda poster in the back...it seems to be in synch with the soldiers on the field. You're really lucky to have captured something like this. Nice work!

Powerful shot. I really like the composition and the POV of looking down really works well here I think. Also, there is a much deeper story to this image and your note about being free and enjoying freedom is currently unknown to the people of Myanmar. This is a very journalistic image that tackles many issues and you pulled it off very well. Excellent shot. Well done!

This one has a different mood for sure. I think I like this one even better due to the woods in the background. The woods do have an eerie quality to them and I feel like something may be hiding behind a tree out there somewhere. And, again, that wonderful read leaf in the foreground that leads me into the frame. Well done, Peter.

Nice one, Alex. I really like how you isolate the main guy in the crowd of people...it works wonderfully well, I think. And the scene looks a bit surreal as well with all the hands and such in the air. Anyway, I'm going to have to do some photography of this type myself...shots that tell a story. Hey...did ya get a new lens? How is the 85mm?
