This is the famous Shwezigon Pagoda, situated in Nyaung U, near Bagan.
Shwezigon is one of the most important Buddhist temples in the country. It was started in the 11th century, by King Anawrahta, in order to shelter some relics of Buddha and also 37 nats, or spirits - 37 sculptures, whose copies are now placed on a hall and can be visited by pilgrims and also by tourists.

The pagoda is marvellous, and with the woman and the child in front of it you have created a wonderful composition. The low perspective gives great prominence to the stupa and makes the gold shine perfectly against the cloudy sky.

A good shot of this Bagan area landmark.
Your ver low POV works well and mother and son walking there makes it a very good composition.

estes templos são realmente uma maravilha mas despertam-me sempre uma sensação de estranheza ao olhar para eles e depois pensar na pobreza e nas dificuldades que as pessoas de Myanmar passam.
Esta mãe e filho que passam calmament por ti, dão um toque muito humano a esta imagem quase que surreal de um templo que mais parece sair dum conto de fadas.

An impressive sight this golden pagoda, well captured with a "couleur locale in the foreground.
joiseyshowaa (81) 2010-08-22 3:09
The upward shot allowing you to frame the entire plaza works well and provides an almost worshipful framing of the dome. The crisp colors bring out the celebration of the place ... and the boy looking at you makes it a tiny bit fun too.

Nice to see another upload of yours from Myanmar, and a gorgeous one it is. Lovely balance of the golds, the blues of the sky, and the white stones, in a light that seems not too harsh but rather friendly. The mother and boy are a happy addition of course. Altogether a wonderful photo....and very Myanmar! Kind regards,

Great low down POV and composition. A beautiful golden pagoda; never get tired of seeing it .
wgreis (8267) 2010-08-22 6:23
que arquitetura bonita! Beleza em cada detalhe e entalhe. Interessante que, numa rápida olhada, achei que o chão estivesse repleto de neve... bem fora do contexto de Mianmar.
Parabéns, abraço e ótimo domingo.

This is a wonderful shot of this outstanding architecture. The angle of the shot works well allowing us to see more than one facade of the temple. The people in the foreground add life and a sense of scale for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has nice sharpness.
Docarmo (9639) 2010-08-22 19:20
O contraste da exuberância do templo com a simplicidade de pés no chão chama a atenção.
Muito bem apanhado!
abmdsudi (43720) 2010-08-22 23:29
Excellent framing and great daily life shot at this majestic golden pagoda. I like your low pov revealing most of the focal point in spectacular details and sharpness. They seem to be the only devotees, I can feel the serenity of the this environment. Good timely shot and your light management is excellent. Well done, TFS
delpeoples (53167) 2010-08-23 18:01
Ola dear Ana, woo hoooo! What a photo! The low POV is superb and demonstrates the grandeur, perspective and detail of this amazing architecture. I like how you have included the people walking for dynamism, interest and also links us to this beautiful country. The colours are wonderful and that sky...there is something Portugese photographers here on TE have a real skill with...getting the best out of the sky and clouds. Congratulations and I wish you a beautiful evening, Lisa
josepmarin (57829) 2010-08-24 1:14
esta toma desde un punto de vista muy bajo con el gran angular nos ofrece una visión espectacular sobre esta maravillosa pagoda dorada. Has hecho muy bien en incluir a esta mamá y su hijo caminando delante de esta arquitectura tan impresionante, para dar un buen toque vital y dinámico a la composición.
Me gusta el resultado estético que has obtenido, en una buena realización.
Urs (14082) 2010-08-24 3:05
The timeless Shwezigon with mother and son, very nice framing. Interesting that only these two were there, I would had expected much more people. Despite the clouded sky fine color hues and high sharpness. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my beach shot.
TopGeo (38204) 2010-08-24 9:09
Hi Ana! The colours the architectural and prospect dynamically surpass your presentation Impressive work
Clementi (52514) 2010-08-24 14:35
bellissimi questi toni dorati, molto bella la scena ravvivata dalla mamma con il bambino in primo piano.

Beautiful and picturesque scenery :] Nice composition, colours and lighting, well framed.
buscape (6219) 2010-08-25 4:00
perfectly chosen low POV to capture this beautifully golden Buddhist temple. I like the inclusion of the yawning woman and her son. Good composition, I like it.
Charo (51210) 2010-08-25 17:26
Maravillosa e impresionante esta gran pagoda dorada. La perspectiva es magnífica y los colores muy bonitos. Excelente composición!
Didi (57256) 2010-08-27 10:05
Plein feux sur cette merveilleuse architecture dorée.
Intéressante prise de vue à faible hauteur qui donne un bel attrait à l'édifice.
tusharkmandal (3171) 2010-08-30 7:38
I simply love the low POV. The golden structure just stands out with a white background. The inclusion of human in the frame ass just another dimension.
Have a nice Time
dip (23632) 2010-08-31 0:48
the low point of view makes the temple to seems still more impressive!
very good also the inclusion of the woman and the boy in the foreground,
very well done,
hdl (6995) 2010-09-01 4:14
Hi Ana. Very nice monument. The colours and framing are excellent. I especially like the low pov and the people passing by (they are a good reference point).
Angshu (55936) 2010-09-01 9:07
Good low POV of the famous Pagoda, captured in all its glory with the mother-child passing in front providing scale. Good work!
PS : You are in India during this month, right?
sothy81 (9568) 2010-09-07 17:23
That's funny with the woman opening her mouth. And the little bou looks shy. Great shot from Myanmar. The temple does look like the ones from Laos. Well done, Ana. Sothy
sacavem (18614) 2010-09-09 3:00
O pov baixo ficou mesmo muito bom as cores estão lindíssimas, o monumento é uma obra de arte em toda a sua extensão.TFS
jmdias (56185) 2010-09-13 8:11
linda arquitetura, o tom dourado do templo e seus detalhes são impressionantes. a inclusão da senhora e o filho ficou muito bem feita. bela luz e nitidez
Waylim (25360) 2010-09-13 17:52
I was in mandalay, but I don't think I have seen this temple, but I guess, we saw so many temples I may not remember I have seen it.
I love the quality of this image, great details, good light, not too strong of a sunlight, the people is a bonus in this shot, it give the essence of the culture.
Very nice low pov and good composition.
mauro61 (52623) 2010-10-02 2:56
un POV ben realizzato con il passaggio della donna e del bambino davanti alla pagoda dorata.
Belli i colori e ben gestita la luce,
JFS (32459) 2010-11-05 23:59
The POV of this pagoda is just superb. The light and the sharpness are really good too. Good work!
Have a good week-end
ingvar (2088) 2011-02-15 18:55
Hai trovato il POV tale che fa dominare questa Pagoda in centro assoluto!
Da l’idea che sta girando, guardando la cupola.
Bello vedere come, vicino al luogo sacro, scorre normalmente la vita quotidiana.
Grazie e a presto!
