A little girl on a school field trip to the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy. Elaborately carved moonstones, like the one at her feet, were traditionally placed at the entrance to temples as a foot cleaning utensil.

a lovely picture that combines the lines and colours of the architecture with the wonderful hurried movement of the little girl. Also, the way the two main themes are associated, the little girl and the moonstone, is most effective and delightful. You've framed the picture using the geometry of the steps superbly. I love the point of view, lighting, chromatic tones and contrasts of this great composition that has an immediate and lasting impact. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hello Ryno - I love this. It brings back great memories of our visit to Sri Lanka. The little school girl is full of life as she strides down the step and across the moonstone. Lovely POV to capture this typical scene. Warm regards Rosemary

A great composition. The little girl is captured in a perfect spot and her body shows great vigour and movement. A very well chosen POV.

A great shot full of dynamism. The movement of the little girl is absolutely superb, I can't imagine a better motion to convey a gracious sense of movement.
The light is also impeccable, offering good contrasts. The placement of the girl on an ornamental carving is clever.

An absolutely beautiful capture. I love the confident stride and the way that the crisp white clothes seem to defy the bare feet. Great clarity. Love it!

Gorgeous moment in time, Ryno - catching her in such a dynamic motion, as if she's hurrying and has just seen something, and just coming off a step onto the cobblestones, there's a wonderful sense of mystery and excitement to it. Very well seen and captured.

You have taken this image with great sense of the moment! The running girl was photographed perfectly close to the pavement's decoration which made the scene more attractive. Excellent shot! Bravo!
