Three men praying in front of one of the four Buddha statues we can find in the Ananda Temple. Each one of the four statues is facing a different direction (this one is facing the North).
The Ananda is one of the most important and also one of the best restored temples in Bagan. Built in the 12th century, during the reign of King Kyanzittha, it's cruciform and a fusion of Mom and Indian styles.

Lovely low light shot of this beautiful temple, Ana. The slight movement you capture in the adherents here brings it to life, while the glow from the golden statue is warm and strong. Nicely done!

Thanks and kind regards.

Bom dia Ana,
Light indoor's the shrine beautifully applied, golden Budha and the surrounding lavish decorations, also in golden colors, are most impressive.
The men praying gave scale to realize the hight of the statue.
Fina taken picture.

Excellent shot from interior of Ananda temple. Good colours and sharpness in difficult light conditions. Good idea to include the praying people there. superb picture.

your vision and presentation of this interior is as delightful as the beauty of this temple itself.Just love this quiet,pensive atmosphere we can so clearly feel while admiring your picture.Also your very low POV together with longer exposure time gives brilliant result.
Have a nice day

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue très près du sol qui donne une perspective très intéressante sur la statue du bouddha comme si on était un pèlerin.

Adorable shot of this impressing golden Buddha statue with the three praying men at his feet. Your light management is spot on and the there is a real sense of scale comparing the men and the Buddha.
have a good evening

Fabulosa esta composicion del interior del templo, con el valor añadido de esos fieles realizando sus rezos y reverencias, preciosa la figura del Buda.
Muy buena luminosidad y nitidez en este trabajo de interiores.
Buen trabajo. Me encanta.
Disfruta de un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Very effective perspective of this impressive Buddha statue. The combination of the low viewpoint of the statue and the vertical lines of the temple works well. It gives a very dynamic angle. The light and shadows are perfectly captured, and together with the inclusion of the praying people, they give the picture a strong impact. The image is well framed, with fine details and superb colours. Very well done.

This are the most difficult picture for take, through the strong gold yellow color and intense light on the statue in these temple.
But you did excellent with high result
Excellent composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

We often see the outside of this temple, but rarely the inside... thanks for showing this big Buddha, with the 3 people praying giving a sense of the scale.
Goood low light control

I remember Ananda Temple but did not go inside. I like how you got in quite close and really filled the frame packed with lot of details creating a sense of realism and profound strong look showing the immense devotion and serenity in a state of pure calmness and so much peace reflected. A superlative indoor shot, color tones, exposure and clarity. Congrats, TFS

Bela foto desses detalhes interessantes do interior desse templo!
Gosto em especial das cores, da luminosidade obtida e da composição simétrica!

Awesome timing and capture of this very solemn moment. Great lighting considering you are only using available light. Love the golden colors. Well done tfs.

Very beautiful Buddha Image. Excellent detail captured in what I assume were tricky lighting conditions. There is a lovely golden sheen.

L'intérieur de ce temple est vraiment magnifique et l'excellente prise de vue nous le montre bien dans toute sa beauté. Parfaite exposition et les couleurs chaudes sont fantastiques.
Toutes mes amitiés et bon début de semaine,

Wow! The grandness of the place is amazing & what I like most is that the place spells peace & quiet. For the 3 sec exposure, did you use a tripod? Fine work...possibly also the first pic I am seeing from inside the Ananda temple
