Le village d’In Dein, au bord du lac Inle, est célèbre pour les mille stupas de la pagode d’Alaungsitthou, construits depuis le XIème siècle et surtout aux XVIIème et XVIIIème siècles
Victimes de pillages au cours des siècles, ils sont peu à peu restaurés par les riches birmans, qui ont le privilège de laisser trace de leur donation au pied des stupas

Very beautiful capture with the impressive religious shapes of the temple. I also like the dynamic presence of the child. Well composed.

what a great pair of eyes you have! What can I say this shot?.. an architectural shot or daily life? Love the blend... The semi-silhouettes works well as a foreground with those beautiful golden coloured stupas at BG. Great shot. Tfs.

Hello Patrick,it`s always nice to view a picture that tells a story or stirs the imagination,here I enjoy the contrast between the the figures in the shade,one moving, the other at rest and the bright golden stupas in the BG.
Very nicely done.
Best regards Les.

una foto molto suggestiva e ben composta, particolare per il bel contrasto tra i soggetti in ombra e le belle stupas dorate inondate dal sole.
Una foto diversa dalle solite cartoline realizzata in maniera eccellente e nella quale nitidezza e colori dominano la scena.
Ciao e buona giornata

Voilà une image très originale réalisée avec talent.
Les personnages créent une ambiance toute particulière.
Il y a toute une histoire à travers cette composition.
Très bonne journée.

Truly beautiful travel image with great light and delightful colours. What really makes this shot is the composition and timing with the two silhouettes perfectly placed in the frame.
Have a nice evening

Intéressante composition où les silhouettes donnent de la vie à ces stupas dorés figés dans le temps.

Très jolie scène dans ce décor doré avec un beau contraste de lumière. J'aime beaucoup.
PS: Non je n'ai pas quitté le navire, je manque de temps et de plus j'ai mon papa bien fatigué. Merci pour l'attention, amicalement,

un superbe gateau avec de belles bougies originales pour cet anniversaire ;-)
superbe gestion de la lumiere avec ces belles ombres animées...
si vous passez par le sud ce serait quand?

Contraste saisissant entre l'action du gamin et l'homme assis, sur un magnifique fond doré.

A wonderful travel shot. Placed the subject brilliantly against the golden structure.
Good dynamic shot.

The 1000 Stupas looks certainly out of the old here in color as well as texture.Very attractive capture in great contrasts and colors. The boy running and lady sitting idle have silhouette have a wonderful effect on the scene.You have framed it very well - great work.TFS.

Perfect composition and details on this amazing photo.Very good lightning usage and great amount of saturation.Very nice job.
All the best
ourania (45022) 2013-07-04 9:25
a wonderful photo defined by a very attractive scenery and an extraordinary series of contrasts. Your point of view and composition are superb, you've given effective perspective both to the foreground and to the amazing background. I love the warm light that is reflected by the gold stupas, the blue of the sky is mesmerising and provides the best chromatic contrast. There's also the contrast between sunshine and shade, splendour and simplicity, movement and stillness, timelessness and transience. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Amazing capture from Myanmar with very good layout and ligth management.
The sitting and running kids creates a perfect contrast in this scenery.
TFS and best regards
marabu61 (10917) 2013-07-05 7:07
Un place vraiment impressive avec tout ces Stupas. Bonne dynamisme grace au petit garçon qui cours autour et la femme qui se repose dans l'ombre.

Scène différente de l'homme assit et du dynamiste de l'enfant, contraste d'ombre sur un joli décor doré
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-07-06 2:44
I can remember one of your previous shots kept in this unique,pensive mood(I think it was the image called Meditation).I must say this one is a magnificent compliment to this subject and Myanmar seen through your lens seems to be amazing and one of a kind place on Earth.
I really like here so strong juxtaposed FG(nicely shaded and moody) with so lovely illuminated and kept in golden shades BG.
Have a nice weekend

Great composition, especially with the running boy. the gold stupas are great. Good composition.

a very contrasty picture in all its meanings. Daily cares next to the golden wonder. Love the listless posture of the person on the right (can't decide if it's the boy's mother or some other guy) as opposed with the swiftly moving figure of the boy. Great capture.
Tigerlily (3379) 2013-07-06 14:28
An excellent shot,Patrick. The light and colour are beautiful. But mostly the kid's movement added on more interest on the photo, it made a wonderful contrast of static and movement.
dta (77606) 2013-07-07 2:48
Bonjour Patrick ,
Une composition épatatnte , d'abord le contraste entre le premier plan sombre et les remarquables stupas dorés dans la lumière . Et ce deuxième contraste netre l'homme qui se repose et l'enfant qui apporte un fort dynamisme à la scène .
abmdsudi (53665) 2013-07-08 10:00
It is a wonderful opportunity - an engaging human story set against the golden stupas in the backdrop - with beautiful light. The silhouetted figs are where the eye starts, it explores the background afterwards and both are sharp in focus with great dof. These elements complement one another so very well indeed. Very impressive shot, Congrats.
Angshu (56750) 2013-07-10 2:31
You have taken quite a few successful shots from this place!
Very nice picture with extremely different exposure contrast and yet the details we see of the man sitting in the shade and the running child enlivens the picture of the brightly shining stupas against the blue sky!
jmdias (63990) 2013-07-11 17:41
marvelous moment with excellent use of the golden pinnacles in the foreground with the two personages adding life and beauty to this marvelous scenery. the sense of life and movement are fantastic. TFS.
Urs (14082) 2013-07-14 5:03
What an excellent shot, Patrick, you made my day. The silhouette of boy as well of the mother are that, what makes this shot a master work, the difference to the standard tourist shot of the golden stupas. Congrats.
annjackman (21895) 2013-07-15 8:25
This is a very original shot. I like the partial silhouettes in the shadows, the resting adult and the lively child, with the golden reflection on the tiled floor. The golden stupas in the BG are magnificent. This is a picture with interesting arrangement of subjects and certainly not a classic tourist shot - excellent!
Kind Regards, Ann

Always great to see a photo of Burma! I guess I don't have photos of these stupas but they seem really interesting. I like the composition with the almost silhouettes of the people and the beautiful golden stupas in the sun light. The boy gives a good sense of movement. Good capture!
jcpix (13916) 2013-08-19 19:24
As much as I like your most recent post, I kept coming back to this one tonight. Perhaps it's my fondness for silhouettes, but no matter the reason, this is a wonderful image. The golden stupas are evident and most prominent here, but it's the sensation of calm contradicting with the action of the little boy in motion in this setting that really grabs my focus. It's a delightful mixture of the two elements, all set in front of these impressive structures that carry so much color, detail and light. Enjoy the day ahead.
Good to see you on FB. :)
