Love the title, having a pray. having a good old pray, I say it with an Irish accent in my head.
This is a beautiful shot of this fine temple, the floor is so reflective, I'd hate to see their polish bills. There is a beautiful range of colours, and I love that you included the ledge at the top of the shot which gives that added extra depth. Yuo done a great job with the lighting too, which looks like it was really difficult, but came out ideal in the capture.
Really nice, thanks for sharing this beautiful place.
All the best

Love the title. Like the composition as well with its great symmetry. Agreeable warm tones and excellent clarity.

an amazing shot this! So much to look at and all so sharp and finely detailed. It is a fascinating place and I would imagine leaves quite an impression on you. Your execution here is flawless and the presentation just wonderful.

You're such a caring girl, writing in both English and Italian... why not also in French or Chinese...just kidding.
I find out most people here are excellent in English, even they are not living in a country speaks English.

Amazing reflection, what a great shot Lisa! The architecture is amazing too.:)))))))
Have a good day!

Such a beautiful place, so unusual to our eyes which are used to see churches. The fine central POV allows a pleasantly symmetrical view of this impressive building. The polished floor is a perfect mirror reflecting the light sources and giving an extra dimension to the place. Amazing colours and depth. Well done.

wow! Very beautiful and very attractive picture of impressive interior beautifully decorated. Extremely beautiful picture. Perfectly well done and presented. Like a lot. Tfs.

non finirò mai di complimentarmi con te.
Hai un'attrezzatura di tutto rispetto, ma senza la sua bravura non otterresti questi risultati, sia in interni che in esterni. Sei padrona della tecnica e bravissima nella composizione. Anche in questa scattata in interno i colori sono superbi, la nitidezza eccellente, la composizione perfetta e grazie a te si riesce ad apprezzare appieno la bellezza di questo tempio.
E' un vero piacere ammirare lefotografie che condividi con questa platea di utenti.
Ciao e buona giornata

Hello dear Lisa, great shot of this beautiful scene inside the temple, a beautiful image with good sharpness, nice color and light. Chaming job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good day and happy week.
A warm hug from southern Spain.

Such a shiny and clean temple kind of reminds me of a five star hotel lobby, although I haven't visited many of them...
That star feature looks really good. Details are more visible than on 'Havin A Pray', so I think this version is better. Reflection of that lantern catches attention too.
carlo62 (26856) 2013-02-12 15:16
situazione intrigante, molti elementi in un interno molto grande e con un pavimento che sembra uno specchio, ottimo il risultato, le colonne sembrano non finire mai.
jjcordier (72614) 2013-02-12 21:48
Très bon cadrage pour cette bonne photo de l'intérieur de ce temple. On admire les couleurs et les reflets sur le sol brillant et l’œil s'attache à tous les détails présents.
mirosu (12284) 2013-02-13 0:31
An excellent interior phor in perfect light. I love the symmetry of this photo. High quality.
P.d. Thanks for your comment to Clock Tower. When have you been in KL? Do you know that on the other side of the park, which was the cricked ground earlier, is my Club, the Royal Selangor Club, an excellent place to eat and drink.
dkmurphys (45829) 2013-02-13 1:06
Spectacular colors and reflections. I like the place, truly attractive.
Have a good day.
krzychu30 (15260) 2013-02-13 1:55
beautiful interior.There is so many details we can admire in excellent quality and of course these delightful,vivid colors.Even if in most interior shots the light is quite poor we do not notice it in this case.You did really great job.
This Temple reminds me some temples in Hong Kong I visited(I was always amazed by the colors and the atmosphere inside.It was a great experience for me)
tyro (18286) 2013-02-13 2:13
Ciao cara Lisa,
What a lovely quaint title - "Having a Pray" - I love it!
A beautifully composed picture with perfect symmetry with gorgeous saturated colours and delightful light. Again, the low light capabilities of your camera and your skill at holding a camera steady for 1/20 second have really paid off to produce a very fine image with exceptional detail and sharpness.
macjake (51374) 2013-02-13 4:44
for obvious reasons I ain't touching you're photo of the 'hot' priest lol
At least not until i get to see John's hot 'nun' photo lol
as for this one, not sure about you...but i hate taking these shots! I'm going to be displaying my OCD here again...but it bugs the hell out of me!!
when taking architecture shots, I'm always on the lookout for these varying horizontal lines near the top of the frame. Quite often is the case when you try to correctly make them all perpendicular - as you have so smartly done here - then for some reason the BOTTOM portion is out of alingment! what gives with that?!
Where's Bulent to explain the physics when you need him!! lol
then, when you try to correctly balance out the bottom portion, then the top horizontal lines are no longer perpendicular. Its like a scene in Seinfeld when you have entered the Bizarro world and everything is backwards! :)
sigh....sometimes architecture frustrates me!!
do you share my pain? probably not lol
thats all i gotta say, time for an anti-anxiety pill :)

Hi Lisa - This temple looks so amazing with the highly polished marble floor; the colourful pillars and statuary seem to float on clear mirror-like water. I love the distinctive decoration and your composition which includes the lovely frieze and ceiling details. Pray? Hmmm... you know what I'd really like to do? Tie cloth over my feet and skate on that floor ;)
Take care and warm regards Rosemary

Scatto come sempre meraviglioso e tecnicamente perfetto.
Molto nitido e pulitissimo nella resa cromatica.
Un caro abbraccio :)
jemaflor (79970) 2013-02-13 23:29
Perfectly framed and presented, brightness is top, ideal for this view, tfs.
Juzo (4329) 2013-02-14 3:24
It's a wonderful temple isn't it? And right in the heart of bustling Chinatown, shows the multicultural mix of Malaysia so well. I should post a pic from a recent visit to Hindu temple in Little India Singapore, which is colourful as well. My fave part of Kl was Brickfields, an Indian neighbourhood (oh my great curries).
I like the shining, colourful finish of this shot.

Ola Lisa ,
Beleza o interior deste templo Hindu , muito bem cuidado e limpo , bonitos os detalhes de arte , parabéns!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
ikeharel (51473) 2013-02-14 8:25
Temple floor polished and shine with a stunning reflection from the colorful pillars and golden poles.
DOF and clarity are super, the man in yellow gawn scaled the view indoor's.
Nice collected photo,
*** I have many reflection pictures already, styled alike or other's, but it is always nice to make changes. Thanks.
mohammad_H (8677) 2013-02-15 6:39
Hello dear friend
Attractive decoration with beautiful designs
Spiritual and religious places, are always beautiful
Good resolution, good brightness and contrast
Have a nice day and enjoy every moment of life.

Where the designer has imbued the work with symmetry it behooves us to accentuate and celebrate that symmetry. I like the vantage point you've chosen, and the flawless exposure you've achieved. Incidentally, in the third of a series of 5 blogs on Leonardo's Bridge that I've been writing for the National Geographic, I've included a photo that our mutual friend, Murray Lines, shot of Sydney Harbor. Take a look at "Variations on a Theme by Leonardo".
Warm regards, Lisa,
ACL1978 (7463) 2013-02-15 19:17
Beautiful symmetry here, Lisa. The designs on the floor, the actual objects, and the reflection of light all meld together into one object here, and it's quite lovely. Is that your same shirtless priest there as from the other day?
A shame that this beautiful space winds up with fluorescent lighting - it doesn't hurt the photo, but I imagine it lessens the mood in the room at times.
fritzi007 (2441) 2013-02-15 19:23
really a wonderful place, just great!
Wish you a nice weekend
Silvio1953 (115095) 2013-02-16 3:33
Ciao Lisa, spettacolare interno, luce favolosa e fantastici riflessi, brava, buon week end, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (94392) 2013-02-18 9:58
I like the juxtaposing of the fg star against the bg circles & also the horizontal lines at right angles to the vertical lines. An amusing title. Good sharpness & nice reflections. Excellent colour & saturation. Well framed & composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!
ruisc_pt (10343) 2013-02-23 7:32
Impressive image Lisa
The floor reflections are amazing and the composition as well.
bayno (18342) 2013-02-23 22:10
bella veduta dell'ingterno di questo bel tempio moderno con il pavimento tirato a lucido e con i suoi riflessi, l'inquadratura è quasi millimetrica e simmetrica, belli i toni e un esposizione perfetta e coraggiosa con solo 1/20 di tempo...ottimo lavoro come sempre...
buona domenica...oggi in italia si vota speriamo bene!!!
korbee (6615) 2013-02-27 8:27
my hotel was just opposite this place last august ;=]
Some great vegetarian places to eat around there as well!
This is exactly what I like about Malaysia,a good functioning multiculti society,different than in my country......
lovely place Mate!
ourania (25508) 2013-02-28 13:23
Ciao cara Lisa,
un elaborato ed affascinante gioco di colori, motivi e riflessi, un tema difficilissimo. Mi piace molto il modo in cui l' hai gestito, la nitidezza, la profondita' e la prospettiva dell' immagine che portano lo spettatore nel quadro in mezzo alla magnifica simmetria che mette in ordine ed esalta i tantissimi dettagli attraenti. Hai vinto la sfida dell' illuminazione molto abilmente. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
