quite a piece of art! the light is wonderful here.. carving out a glowing silhouettes is what this shot is all about. the darkness brings in an air of sadness and content. great DOF again as always, and a POV which matches to none better.

This one has this feel of myticism..spirituality and an uneasy calm about it...imean you were right behind and you had to follow..dont see any tourists in front..so it was only you..you done well to get this pov and light..
Like the way the monk in front has this halo of light around him and the blurr effect on the distant ones..
Real good one...well done mate :)

that's great. the lightened up face-outline and shoulder against a backdrop of blurred paraders. it is a universal theme.

Beautiful picture with the suggestion in the blur and in the profile of the firt man... Nice light, just maybe a little dark but however, I like it !

most exciting work here - particularly a delicate line of light coating the arm and face of the last monk adds special "flavor" to this image...
Morac (27723) 2007-11-26 10:59
Often it is to better suggest that to show
In this photograph all is suggested and all is known as.

Excellent! The light sorrounding the monk, his smooth skin, the red bonus, the curve that leads the eye to the other end of the line, uncluttered green bg - every single thing is perfect. I'm adding it to my treasure chest with your permission.

great picture, very nice lighting and silhoutte
I like the shallow dof, but still can see the diagonal line of these monks

Hi Manuel. Unusual and respectful shot of these gentle monks. The light delineating his face and shoulders is a wonderful touch, adding to the mood and spirit of this event. A beautiful response on your part. Regards. Klaudio.

Just a perfect shot!
I really like this " monk perspective" and the framing!
Nice work :)

Very nice manny, the aura of light around the first monk and the wondeful bokeh, not too mention the colours
rbcy1974 (20758) 2007-11-27 3:44
Very interesting, I like the way you hav e managed to turn this lineup of monks into an almost abstract picture,
very nicely done
pcp (3394) 2007-11-27 14:13
Wow, Wonderful light and perfect DOF, Brillant image. Fantastic work :))

Creative and very smart picture. I love the subject, the light and its composition.
pascal-harbi (1005) 2007-12-03 13:18
This is a great piece of photography, the way the light shows the "contour" of the monk in the foreground, and the background, showing enough, but not too much!
MichaelHal (234) 2007-12-20 9:57
in this picture we are a part of these alms collecting monks ... great work !
sarahnatalie (697) 2008-02-14 17:05
What to say? This photo is a piece of art. It is very moving and powerful. Excellent!
adamchewts01 (862) 2008-03-24 6:27
Its been a while since I last commented on your photo. I have chosen this one as it is really good. I am very curious what lens are you using? I saw your EXIF data and the focal length is 44mm. Are you shooting this picture close to the back of the monk?
Thanks for sharing.
IrenaHarrison (18) 2009-08-08 4:58
Stunning! a true work of art, do you have any tutorials?
Merou (4726) 2009-10-05 13:57
I like the way you capture this image.

An stunning photo like most of your shots. The light from the right is just marvelous. It gives the feeling that you;re one of the monks walking in line.

Beautiful perspective from an excellent POV. Perfect focus. Regards, Yvonne
Juzo (4363) 2010-09-14 6:09
Brilliant depth of field and flawless technique. The colour and deep light work well to lead the eyes. The composition is first class.
sittipong (251) 2011-02-23 6:27
Very impressive one.
guftgu (22) 2012-04-11 7:06
A WOW composition. The feel is so real and calm. I really liked the light on the face and shoulders of the last monk. I guess you were right there at the right time. Great work.
Thanks and Keep sharing.
