Hi Swiatek. Our guide told us it was the second biggest, or I could have misunderstood/forgotten (quite likely). I like this shot quite a lot, but there are a couple things. The legs and the blown out areas in the background are a little distracting for me. I do really like the crop you have on the monk though. Good shot overall. HNY.

Yes I have to agree with Darren about the overexposed area, as well as the bare legs of that ignorant tourist. Bare legs and arms in a temple is very very bad form, a complete no, no.
But I think with a close crop on the monks hands, you will have a great photo, especially for a 'body parts' theme.

Like Bogdan I think thisx photo edserves moer attention. The composition is original and thuoghtful, and quite effective. So it has some bare-legged tourists in it? Well cnosider: if you don't have tourist-legs, you have a rather normal photo of a monk, the kind of photos tourists take. A rtaevl photo in fact. Nothing wrong with traevl photos, I take them yself. But put the tourists ni, especially the bare legs, and you have a totally different type of photo, a documentary about tourists and their interaction with the places they visit instead of a rtavel photo about exotic destinations. It edserves far more acclaim.

yes, it is good.. and I agree with the remarks about the legs in the background.
At the first moment they indeed seem distracting, but after a short thought one comes to what this picture is about.
And a good title also
