Taken on Nyatapola temple in Bhaktapur, a fascinating medieval town east of Kathmandu.
Each level represents a 10 fold increase in the strength of the one below it. 'Man' is on the lowest level, with elephants next, & so on.

Beautiful light and colors in your picture!
Good handling of the strong light contrasts and again a excellent scan!

This place looks amazing, the animals are as on a procession to show us their power.
nice tone too.

Excellente prise de vue,quelle architecture!!
J'aime beaucoup ces gigantesques statues et ces bouts de tissus qui pendent dans le fond de l'image!
Très belle scéne!

Nice statues for sure and very interesting story to go with it, I'm wondering if a bottom up view taken from the left side would not have worked better ?
Have a nice sunday,

Interesting scene with a lot of details to be found, Chris - a quite fascinating blend of the old architecture and artwork with some distinctively contemporary elements. Too bad you only got this "torso" of the man in red in the bottom corner.

Hi Chris, I like this view from the top. I guess this is a from Buddha point of view picture. Very nice layout in combining the ordinary on the side and extraordinary of the bug status. Nice composition and nice shot.

I like in this photo how the subjects are all given space to look to the left, creating a nice sense of balance. Interesting photo!

Excellent document encore une fois. Ces statues sont magnifiques. L'angle de prise de vue est bien choisi. Les personnes présentes nous indiquent la taille des statues.
Une légère surexposition sur la tête de l'éléphant, mais rien de méchant.
C'est très beau et très bon mon ami !

Great perspective, from this interesting place.
Los colores los veo un tanto apagados , los prefiero mas vivos.
De todos modos una buena perspectiva de este seguro que bonito lugar.

A nice shot to show the emphasis on the different levels of strength. I find the earth colours very nice and there are beautiful tonal qualities. As usual the light and shadows are very well controlled. Great capture! Regards.
