Chinatown of Singapore with a Buddhism temple in the background. It is a view along the Temple street. For Europeans like me it's an interesting and unknown world. Have look to the shops and you see things never seen before.
Singapore's Chinatown is an ethnic neighbourhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated ethnic Chinese population. Chinatown is located within the larger district of Outram. As the largest ethnic group in Singapore is Chinese, composing approximately 75% of the population, Chinatown is considerably less of an enclave than it once was. However, the district does retain significant historical and cultural significance. Large sections of it have been declared national heritage sites officially designated for conservation by the Urban Redevelopment Authority.

Great sharp picture of these colourful buildings, reminding me of my recent visits to Singapore. I stayed in a small historic hotel in this street - the Inn on Temple Street, I think it was called - a couple of years ago. Excellent angle of view and lovely colours; the DOF is really good.

That`s a really nice photo, although the frame to me as a bit of an exaggeration. In any case, a good contrast between the old and the new, with a really nice mix of colorful facades. Technically very clean. Looks like a neat street.

The diagonal line of the street is an asset to the composition. The prsence of the people has an effect of scale. The point of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The subject is well framed. Have a nice day.

Hello my dear Achim
This is an another great and impressive shot!
Perfect framework and nice proportion and best color coordination are so admirable as usual. Long focus approach is best choice in this case, so impressive!
Congratulation on your masterpiece!

Too bad you got such a sky, otherwise this corner is very pleasant and the brightly colored houses make me think of Ireland
Have a nice day JY

This is somewhat a surprise to see a Chinatown in Singapore, because I had the idea that the population of the city is a mix of Malay, Chinese, etc, therefore with Chinese all over the city, without a separated Chinatown district.
Very nice, colorful view.
paura (47166) 2009-12-11 2:33
Essas cores todas propiciaram um interessante efeito cromático. Linda fotografia.

Great colour and clarity in this daily life shot.
I like the mixture of architecture here.
:( Too bad the sky was so grey/overexposed.
Excellent frame and write-up.

Cette perspective haute en couleurs se laisse bien admirer. Le temple au second plan fait bonne impression. Dommage que le ciel n'ait pas été de la partie !
Amical salut !
