I was in KL town to settle my car insurance. While passing by Sri Maha Mariamman Temple Dhevasthanam at about 11:30AM, some stalls were open for business by the side of the temple. Captivated by the colorful garlands, took this shot from across the road.
When I did some touch up of this photo at home, then only I noticed the pigeon flying when the man was walking pass.
Is this a signal or sign for all man kind that peace is within us ?
This photo is cropped to focus on the stalls and the pedestrians. Adjusted brightness and colors.
You can view this temple in my other TE photo
Thanks for viewing and may peace surrounding all of us !

The clarity and sharpness of your pic is great but taking the actual event of such short fall. But the pigeon flying off is good. What I meant is that the shot is too common in angle-wise. There's too much distraction that prevail the main subject, the colorfull flowers. Maybe you ought to go nearer and study an angle for a brilliant shot, friend.

Peace is good. We need a lot of this for us to live life better. Maybe we need to have a lot more pigeon of peace, flying all over. At least it would stop people for a few seconds, before doing anything else.

Yes I saw the pigeon without reading your note, but first I was attracted to the colored garlands, then the girl and then the man looking at his curious belly, that pigeon, a bit hided, a good daily life shot.

For some reasons I like this photo even better than the one posted later ... I like the human element in this one and also the pigeon taking the flight ... it also gives us a better perspective of where the garlands are .... tfs ... cheers .... sarju

Hello Chai, your photo is pretty and has the enchantment of the natural thing and daily, your shot has been very opportune and I like the detail of the dove raising the flight.
Your colorista composition is very well done technically, good color, good light, good frame and very good definition.
Congratulations and a hug from Spain.... Paco

Great symbolic phot! Love the pigeon captured in mid-flight! The fresh garlands have that vibrant color. TFS

The pigeon adds an interesting point of detail to your photograph, Chai, but it's a pity it is difficult to see at first glance because of the colour of the man's shirt behind it (in fact I didn't notice it until I read your note!). Good exposure and sharpness. Cheers . . . David
