CLARIFICATION: THE FRAMING IS THE ORIGINAL WINDOW FRAME AND NOT PHOTOSHOP CREATED FRAME. I GOT ALSO SUGGESTION FOR LANDSCAPE FORMAT, THE WINDOW DID NOT ALLOW IS (BECAUSSE THE WIDOW IS SHAPED IN PORTRAIT FORMAT).
After nature photos from Black Forest I’ve decided to post some interior photos which I’ve collected during my trips to miscellaneous countries.
I’m starting with photo from Ambdsudi’s country, beautiful Singapore, a photo showing a widow view to Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, located in the heart of Singapore’s China Town.
It is a Buddhist temple based on the Tang dynasty architectural style and built to house the tooth relic of the historical Buddha. The ground breaking ceremony was conducted on 13 March 2005 and 2 years later, a soft launch was held to coincide with the 2007 Vesak Day celebration.
It also houses what Buddhist leaders regard as the Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic in a stupa composed of 320kg of gold donated by devotees.
Since opening, the temple has become a popular attraction within Chinatown. Simple vegetarian fare is served in the basement of the temple, though donations are accepted.
Today it is a living cultural monument featuring exhibitions relating to various facets of religious arts and culture of Singapore.
Other highlights found in this building include the Buddhist Culture Museum, Eminent Sangha Museum, Tripitaka Chamber, and a Theatre for cultural performances, talks and films.

Hmm, I am not an expert of the Buddhist religion, but I've visited the Relic of the tooth of the Buddha in Kandy city in Sri Lanka, for example.
Excellent photo, perfect sharpness, fine DoF. This is very attractive combination of the golden colored photo and the black frame. I like it! But only one word, I'd like to add a tall white frame between black and yellow colors. But this is only my own opinion.

A splendid interior shot of this temple, very detailed, clear and sharp and attractive with the predominantly golden tones.
Very strange creatures on the wall :)
Best regards, Paul

L'or est à l'honneur. Il brille de tous ses feux dans ce cadrage vertical qui surprend par sa luminosité. J'aime le flou chez les personnages qui donne une impression de mouvement.

This is a very special place, the way you have framed it is spectacular. Placing the statue off centre like this and allowing the rest of the scene to be filled with the devotees and the candles captures the mood so well. Perfect handling of the light. Thanks for your excellent note too, it is great to learn of a place as beautiful as this.
Thanks as always

Good evening Miro,
Gloden lavish dercorated religious & art elements, shine under the light indoor's.
Maybe an horizontal format would had shown more of the place - merely my humble opinion.
The inclussion of people visiting gave life element to the scene.

beautiful presentation. The temple is very impressive, so full of gold and elaborate decorations. I like the colorful silhouettes of people in the FG as well, they add a realistic touch.
Very well done,

Much like your series of arches from not too long ago, you have once again utilized the natural frame within a frame to your best advantage. This smart concept has given us the perception of "peeking through the window" ourselves. You could have easily composed this tightly around the golden statue and display, but this blackened outline adds so much more intrigue. Not only that, but the inclusion of people and their attire is a nice contrast of color and form...in fact, the slight blur even suggests movement within the scene. A beautiful and detailed temple interior, and you've done it proud! Have a great day. Hope you were able to get your breakfast in. :)

Salut cher Miro
A beautiful, warm light. I love the subject and the way you have decided to compose and frame it. The black contrasts nicely and helps bring it out. Warmest wishes and a happy day to you.

I love the selective focusing highlighting on the essentials effectively under a challenging indoor light condition capturing a moment of calm and serenity. A little glimpse and good balance afforded by the prayers to give the eye something to fill in adding to the religious impact of the picture. You have captured the moment well and really get the feel of the situation and putting religious feelings, technicality and beliefs to one side, this is a delightful image full of atmosphere and the vivid colour is bang on. Congrats
PS; Tx to the links, enjoyable smashing gallery and so much colours to absorb!
