Yoga this image is beautiful. The blurred colourful background is superb and serve well for the central figure. Great colours saturation and definition. I like the scene because of the way she stands there in meditation. Nicely composed image and very attractive. Thanks Yoga :-)

A stunning image. The warmth of the colours and your great use of depth of field makes for a wonderful scene. Nice off centre composition and good sharpness where its needed.

I like the yellow fuzziness on the back. Good Framing

très nette, très belles couleurs chaudes, bien vu le cadrage sur un sujet à gauche, et très vite un flou très artistique

Greetings Yoga. An uplifting photo for its calmness and warmth. The girl stands out beautifully against the blurred background. Focusing on just one devotee has made the whole ceremony much more intense. Wonderful colours and details. Elegant and beautiful. Regards. Klaudio.

Great shot. Good composition and DOF.

Excellent colors. To use the other girls out of focus as a background is a very good idea.

Hi Yoga, such a beautiful scene. Seeing your image I would love to leave from here right now. Can't get enough from Bali. Best wishes, Nino.

What a shot;perfect.
No more words to say...

Tu foto me parece maravillosa. El primer plano de la niña con perfecta nitidez y lo demás sin profundiad de campo es fenomenal. La composición es un acierto. El colorido cálido y la masa de clores del segudo plano parece una pintura de expresionismo. Felicitaciones

Simply beautiful ! Your work is very well executed. Colors are very nice, like the composition and the detachment of the subject of the background. Very good work. Cordially,

A pity we missed each other in the past week! Next time on Bali, I'll call you earlier :-). I had some good photoshooting as well. Really enjoyable place you're living ;-).
Nice shot. A bit of a pity of the arm of the other person to the left, but you can't have it all. The light is very pleasing and nicely intense colours!
Greetings from Medan, Dennis

Great use of shallow depth of field. I love the girl's pose. These kinds of pictures really expose cultures, great job.
Evolution (91) 2007-07-29 16:53
well done. good control on DOF. beautiful subject and warm color hue. Maybe a bit too overweight on the left side.
lyn (139) 2007-07-29 16:59
Excellent planning and use of DOF.

sincerely, i can´t believe you start this "hobby" in 2005... you have one of the best "albums" on TE, and i say this with envy ;). I crtique this photo (excellent colors, supeb. election of focal range...) but i could critique as excellent all of them, specially portraits.ypu might be professional,
tinamunk3 (6404) 2007-07-30 12:42
Amazing golden colours you have here, Yoga. The way you have isolated the child from the rest is great......FANTASTIC.
Hope life is nice on Bali :O)

Vraiment un belle maitrise de ton appareil, compo décalée laissant place à cette merveille.

Again, this looks like straight out of a scene from Stereo type Tamil Movie Climax of `90s where the heroine goes to pray for the Hero`s success at the temple with a 5 minute, all yellow / red frames :))
Very dramatic very momentous...
