Swaddee Krub everybody,
Songkrang 2008,I'd entered the second round in the late afternoon and between i finding the location to shoot Phrasat Phradepbhidorn.I still saw the beautiful scene of Phra Mondop from the west that softer sunlight in late afternoon impressed me so much.I took this shot by captured Dhyani Buddhas statue on foreground to start the interesting line to BG.
For post process,Firstly I croped then use curve a little bit to composition and adjust contrast. Secondly,I duplicat layer to split sky layer and use gradient effact and cooling filter for sky area.Thirdly,I use color balance and hue/saturation tool to adjust the color for architecture.Finally,I used smart sharpen, framing and resize to finish.
For information in brife: Phra Si Rattana Chedi, which it's claimed (somewhat improbably) houses ashes of the Buddha.Phra Mondop, in the middle of terrace, is a library built in Thai style by Rama I, known for its excellently crafted Ayutthaya-style mother-of-pearl doors, bookcases containing the Tripitaka (sacred Buddhist manuscripts), human- and dragon-headed nagas (snakes), and statues of Chakri kings.Prasat Phrathepbidorn(The Royal Pantheon), with full size statues of the first seven kings of the reigning Chakri dynasty (Rama I - Rama VII). Only open on April 6th, the anniversary of the founding of this dynasty.
For further information : wat prakeaw and you could look for this location in the map of wat pra kaew and more knowledge about Dhyani Buddhas

It has been some time. Fantastic POV of this beautiful building, I like the slightly off center framing. Wonderful colours, especially with the soft afternoon light. Impressive image.
I hope you had the rain cover on your camera, Songkrang can get a bit wet.

This is a very good low POV at the corner of the building with the statue on the FG and all the beautiful columns leading our eyes towards the top.
Good light management.
Best regards, Paul

A good upward pov on this impressive section of the Grand Palace. A wonderful golden colour of the temple, which contrasts well against the blue sky. Excellent sharpness too. Tfs!

The point of view is strong here due to the effect of the bottom to top angle view. It is increasing the feeling of heigh, helped also by the felt small size of the statue.
It it the kind of photo which provide the wish to visit Thailand.
