Hello, Trekkers! Greetings from sunny Turkey!
I took this shot on the Phu Si temple mount in Luang Prabang.
Mount Phou Si, also written Mount Phu Si, is a 100m high hill in the center of the old town of Luang Prabang. It lies in the heart of the old town peninsula and is bordered on one side by the Mekong River and on the other side by the Nam Khan River. The hill is a local religious site, and houses several Buddhist shrines.
Halfway up the hill, overlooking the Nam Khan is Wat Tham Phou Si, a Buddhist temple. At the summit of the hill, overlooking the town and surrounding countryside, is Wat Chom Si, which is also a Buddhist temple and is a tourist highlight of Luang Prabang.

You could have only choose vertical here, the tree frames the pagoda nicely and you have managed the exposure well, tricky against the pale sky

Ils ne sont peut-être pas riches mais ils tentent de le faire paraître. De très beaux détails et une belle perspective malgré la lumière très difficile.

Hope you're enjoying your trip in Turkey. Your bottom up POV and vertical framing works great here. The golden color of the temple is so eyecatching and look impressive. It's a pity that the sky is dull and does not add to the quality of this beautiful photo. Thanks and best wishes,

Ciao dear Serghei,
interesting image of this golden temple, captured with excellent sharpness. I like the choice of the POV, with the same embroidery of the dome. Great work, dear friend, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice weekend!

This is a stylish composition with elegant colours. Maybe you actually benefitted from what seems to have been a rather grey and dull day. The grey sky goes very well with the golden domes and the dark stones. The branches of a tree cover part of the sky very attractively.

There sure are a lot of gold buildings in Asia! Great pov and dof with sharp details. Nicely framed by the tree. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
