Yes, a good view down the stairs.. I will post the view from down next! I actually spent more time in a local bar than in the temple( we only came for a day visa trip)
Nice colours and choice of vertical format.

a lovely downward view with great perspective and depth. The bordered stairway is elegant and the vegetation on its sides very pleasing as they lead to the gate and the outside view. I like very much the mild lighting, the vivid colours of this side and the misty view on the other side of the river. Well done and thank you!
All the best,

A nice deep perspctive and a good view across the Mekong. From the thumbnail I thought this would be from the Phousi Hill in Luang Prabang. I don't remember this place at all.

interesting pespective on the stairway leading to the river.
I hope the monasery was the climbing worth

An elegant composition with a superb perspective and exquisite depth. The stairway leads the eye to the river. Different kşnds of trees and greenery all along the stairway enriches the scenery. I liked the lighting, well saturated colors and sharpness. A great work well deserves acclamation. TFS and best wishes,

A simple scene, but a terrific X-shaped composition. The result makes a very appealing picture. Thumbs up.

Excelent depth down the stairs, Serghei.
Fine chosen POV with the water appeared with the verdant surrounding on sides of the long way towards it.
Good clearity, inspite of the mist.

I have clomed those stairs and lloking at this my legs begin to ache again.:) Great perspective, I like the river running in the BG

impressionnant cet escalier, il ne faudrait pas chuter et le dévaler jusqu'en bas. Très bonnes lumières malgré cette brume qui tente de masquer l'arrière plan qui soit dit en passant, apporte pas mal de profondeur.
Une toute bonne contre plongée.

Hi Serghei !!
Long set of steps that require pacience..... not to be attempted when is hot & humid
iI would rather have the cold weather of Russia !!!!
however the view from the top is very nice....... lots ot see in the foreground and in the background.
Well taken !!1

Intriguing photo, I like that the stairs not only lead the viewer into the image but that it creates a triangle effect as well. Depth of field is clear and sharp and the softer, natural tones are well balanced. By the way, I enjoyed the quote from your comments on my last posted picture!:) Have a great day.
