A beautifully executed night shot from this pov which has such enormous impact creating striking contrast to the night sky. The significant subject, the famous wat is superbly lit and so finely exposed to perfection in such wonderful clarity and sharpness. Nicely done, Great low light capture. Congrats,

This probably looks very nice in the day, but at night with all the lights on it looks magic. It seems that Luang Prabang has kept its very special atmosphere from long ago.
Didi (54655) 2012-04-06 11:34
Very good lights management
Interesting tight frame but I suppose you masked the foreground for presence of disturbing elements like cars.

This photo would make any Laotian proud, especially of the golden color, as you know, they love orange gold colors in the temple. Excellent night shot, the dark sky really bring out the light.
Truly a postcard from Luang Phrabang,

I remember Wat Mai very well...one of the first ornate wats I had seen with my eyes. This night shot details are very nice. The golden colour stands out against the dark night!
PS : Look fwd to see your pictures from Chiang Mai
