I was overwhelmed by the responses on my first post so i decided to post another one, but this time in a symmetrical composition. Too bad the sky was not appealing as I expected.
Thanks for all your critiques.

Hola, and welcom to Trekearth!
You begins strong with two excellent pictures. I prefer this last one. Colours, and sharpness are better and I like a lot this simply and elegant composition, with the reflection on the water.
Hasta la vista,

Really good photo with perfect symmetry! I like this angel and I also like the beautiful colors of this photo.
And yeah, I recognize we use the same camera...

Hello Albert, be glad to meet very much
of you and to be able to enjoy your first
photos, this of the reflexes is a small
jewel full of beauty and nice details,
it is an image artistic and framed well
to obtain this perfect symmetry.
As for the technical topic I have to
mention that perhaps the colors have
not gone out very natural and sky
that could only a little overexposed
to the light, in any case the result
is good and I like.
Un saludo desde España y gracias.

Wonderfully shot with superb sharpness and wonderful details, wonderful symmetry and extraordinary reflections.
Best regards. Salvator.
CeccoPhoto (2717) 2008-04-29 8:20
The vertical-photo is realy good.
I like always the your frame.
Maybe in this photo I should have add more the contrast of the sky.
Good work, CeccoPhoto!!

très bon choix de cadrage en respectant la symétrie donnée par les reflets; La photo est très agréable à regarder. Belle lumière
PS : avec un peu de retard je te souhaite la bienvenue sur TE ;o)

siolaw (38078) 2008-04-29 18:37
A classic view well realised. The central framing works well here with these fine reflections... The weather was not so helpful but i like the soft colors
Welcome to TE!

Wow, superb image !
These reflestions are amazing, and golden tones are very pleasant.
bobocortis (15946) 2008-04-30 0:58
I like this picture a lot, more than the other one. The reflections are very nice and the vertical format gives a better perspective.
Why didn't you insert a note?
fabio_ts (13694) 2008-04-30 2:18
A perfectly composed picture Albert, a classic and well chosen POV and very well framed.
have a nice day,
JPlumb (3159) 2008-04-30 4:08
Hello Albert, I read your bio. If your wife taught you how to shoot, as well as getting you your first SLR then you have a great teacher. This is very good work. I like the four way symmetry seen here with the reflection. The shot is tack sharp with excellent colour. Don't worry about the sky, it looks very natural. Very nicely done.
paura (47166) 2008-04-30 8:46
The composition is really nice here. The symmetric view in the watter surface is an excellent way to show this beautiful castle. well done.
carper (96) 2008-04-30 10:44
it is a fantastic place you show us here Albert,
the pov is exact in the middle you have made a good photo,When I see a shot like this then I see also the possibilities when you had a great sky behind, but you did not have it here, but even that a good photo job and welcome to Trekearth. have a nice day.
plimrn (21344) 2008-04-30 11:50
Lovely reflection in this symmetrical compo. If you can get your hands on a polarizer filter, it helps a lot with light sky syndrome.
gunbud (34066) 2008-04-30 18:32
Brilliant vertical presentation of this beautifully ornate temple. The intricate details are very well seen as they make a striking reflection in the clear still waters. Excellent clear colors with great details and sharpness to this beauty.
vbourrut (32474) 2008-05-01 1:42
Very nice reflection, a nice picture well composed ! I wish I'll go there once
josepmarin (57623) 2008-05-01 11:37
First, welcome to this great site.
Your first photo here is very attractive, the centered setting works very well, and you have could take advantage of the reflections of this beautiful architecture on the water, in an image with excellent horizontal symmetry, as a mirror.
skerdreux (3184) 2008-05-02 4:36
a perfect reflexion ! with a better weather (deep blue sky and no wind) you can take a better picture.
anyway your picture is wonderfull !
have a nice day
Silversnow (2319) 2008-05-02 21:06
Superb mirror composition here, very very nice.
kiks (11749) 2008-05-04 13:50
Hi Albert impressive building and composition. The centering here works well in my opinion you reach perfect vertical and horizontal symetrie. Good work,
COSTANTINO (52812) 2008-05-05 3:53
a marvellous reflection with architectural
details and a photo fantastic.
Lovely colours and nice atmosphere
Bravo it is really a symmetrical composition
leo61 (0) 2008-05-06 10:10
A great shot with wonderful reflections.I like the symetry and the contrast with the light blue sky and water.
wolf38 (31038) 2008-05-06 19:27
Hello Albert. A wonderful picture. The reflection works outstanding. Above all the graphic structure is worth seeing. Best regards, Wolfgang.
jafadabret (56501) 2008-05-11 4:57
Albert, tu as fait là un vrai chef-d'oeuvre. La symétrie s'imposait pour ce joyau de Thaïlande. J'aime beaucoup le gris du ciel qui se reflète dans l'eau, il fait ressortir les belles couleurs de l'édifice.
Didi (55499) 2008-05-12 0:27
Interesting composition in spite of the milky sky
I have done a natural WS to give another look to the sky.
Angshu (55035) 2008-05-13 20:45
I'd been to Ayutthaya & remember this palace very well. A fine reflection shot with perfect symmetry. Would have been even more wonderful if the sky was blue. Fine colours with excellent sharpness & contrast. Good work!
parbo (11092) 2008-05-15 17:47
You already reflection master! Golden colored, rich ornaments of temple makes your photo a special one with its splendid reflections. Great effect of water on reflected facade, wonderful. Congratulations.
Flavia (10352) 2008-05-25 2:03
Despite the pale sky the result is great, actually the sky may had helped as it does not compeete with the golden bulding. The simetric composition is great. The reflection is really beautiful.
I loved this city when I visited it 4 year ago, but I didn"t have the chance to see this palace.
cobra112 (15589) 2008-05-25 10:01
Fantastic composition. Very very great reflections, It' seems a paint.
pboehringer (770) 2008-06-06 11:04
this is a most amazing view and you executed it extremely well with the vertical frame having the whole reflection without any loss of the it. In other words - almost PERFECT. Why only almost? The sky is flat and doesn't have any interesting contrasting element. I know, that isn't your fault. It requires that last portion of luck to be there at the right moment of the day with the right weather conditions to get the ultimate WOW effect. Any chance for you to go back at such a moment?
chirasak (2) 2008-06-15 4:38
how wonderful this picture, it is great picture i like the reflexing on the water very much
JanD (0) 2009-02-09 2:07
Perfect composition, ideal capture. Amazing architecture. Superb mirror. Good shot.
Focales (22) 2009-03-21 3:15
Je crois reconnaître le beau temple de Bang pa in, situé à Ayuthaya ???
Je suis admirative de son reflet dans l'eau mais peut-être aurait-il mérité d'être un petit peu moins centré... question de goût.
Paolo66 (169) 2009-03-23 6:21
Spectacular reflection. It could be used to create a jewel.
Thanks for sharing.
