I liked the textured flagstones & fg lighting, but can't imagine that it would be much fun, for the tourist in the wheelchair, in the center bg. Taken at the Temple of Heaven. A rare blue sky for Beijing, also.

Hi Chris - appropriate compo to illustrate this situation, emphasizing the difficulties of the floor for the wheelchair. A very clever shot. Well done, Daniel

You took very low this picture just above the cobblestones.
This gives a excellent depth and leads us to the wheelchair in background.
You write a rare blue sky for Beijing, come in Beijing than no blue sky through the air polution?
Very well composition and nice presentation too.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend,

After the Olympics the Paralympics start, hope the people in wheelchairs will not have to cross this path, must be terrible crossing this. Good eye in seeing this but also your low pov...very good.

Very nice portrait, excellent low angle and composition
yeah must be difficult for the wheelchaired persons on this rough floor.

An excellent point of view that brings out the textures in the paving stones to good effect, which, in turn, make a good lead-line towards the gates. I like the soft light and colours. Excellent clarity.

well seen, must really be awful. The pavement from the bit low POV is just excellent and its brown works great with the blue of the sky. Sharpness and lines of this are very good.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

un POV original, pris de bien bas. Excellentes couleurs, naturelles et lumières bien dosées. Malheureusement pour nous, les portiques n'étaient pas éclairés de ton côté.

Because I have a daughter in wheelchair I can sure identify with this title :) Very interesting detail. TFS

Good effect given by the emphasis on the floor, and also a good point about wheelchair acess... they didn't have them in those days!Sarp and clear, with a nice Beijing sky!

excellent picture and the story to it. indeed, the pushing wheelchair on the cobblestone lioke this must have been a nightmare. Clever observation. And such a clear sky over beijing, it is somethiing unusual.

Hi Chris! This scene is very prospect captured! The Use of lens and low POV You gave a result that impresses. A lot the interest falls in the entries and what is inside. Good your idea.

Like your giving prominence to the cobblestones, which would be a nightmare for the wheel chairs. The twin gates of the temple create interest as well. A very interesting shot & definitely unique from this place. What are those 3 red structures on the right?
