Another shot taken at the palace. In PP I tried to use the gradient technique using blue as the foreground. kinda surreal but nice.

Very sensitive picture of a perfect keept corner! The gras is beautiful just like the watergate in the center. You were right to increase the saturation!
Have a great day!

Nice photo with good composition and lovely reflection. A delightful garden. You did some good PP to get some colour into the sky. I think that it looks like a bright sunny sky, but the landscape below does not look like the sun is shining, despite some bright green colouring. The bridge shows no shadow at all. So, despite the nice composition I find it looks a little strange.

a very interesting shot, I wonder if there is a secret behind the watergate?
Colours are great!

There is lovely light and color in this well-framed composition. I love plumeria trees but have never managed to capture one as beautifully as you have here.

I like this shot a lot.
I like the water reflections, the composition and the perspective giving depth to the pic.

A wonderful scene. Really well-composed with the blooming tree in the foreground and with superb reflections in the pond. TFS!

I am very surprised to read in your intro that you are quite new to photography, all of your photos so far, are of a very high quality. We should thank your wife, I think, because she infected your with the "virus" of photography. One more time a beautiful reflections, great framing and composition, excellent light managment and beautiful colours! Congratulations!

Really looks like a postcard, very still and peaceful place. Lovely garden concept and well composed shot.

The composition is very good with the inclusion of the flowery tree in the foreground. The colours are good with some lovely reflections in the water. I'm not convinced by your changes in the sky because of the reflections. The sky would have been reflected too. I can see from the reflected sky that there was some detail with clouds and some blue. One thing you could do next time is to try a ND grad filter, so the exposure between land and sky is balanced out. If that is not an option try shooting in RAW and the detail in the sky could possibly have been rescued.

Very great amount of detail and a very spectacle reflection. It seems that you have mastered the art of capturing reflection. Those reflections are really perfect. Love the sharpness and color of this shot. Great composition and fantastic POV.

I went 4 times in Thailand,but never in Ayutthaya,when I look at your pictures,i think that it was an error!It seems to be so beautiful!Here,the reflection is superb,and I like your POV very much,including the flowered tree on the left!The vivid green of the grass is superb,and makes a nice contrast with the blue sky!This one is maybe a little bit strange,as the blue doesn't seem natural!Anyway,it's a really beautiful photo!
Have a nice evening.

Hello Albert! I think the sky is ok as it is. What really attract the eyes are the reflections and those 'golden' grasses. Love also the way you composed the shot to highlight the curves of the water. rgds.

Work with photoshop call for what experience, but through a lot use shall in the future all better.
Depth and perspective are very well, also the colours are pleasant for look it, when your different hours to this picture have worked than earn you absolutely two points.
Thanks for sharing.

This is a well composed shot. The reflection adds nice depth and balance to the photo. The lighting and colors are fine as well.

Hello Albert. The photo with the dominating colors green and red is impressing. It works by its clarity and peace. Also the composition is outstanding. Very beautifully. Best regards, Wolfgang.
