The Chinese influence in Phuket is obvious here. I liked the neat, well kept garden & park. Phuket city is a city located in the southeast of Phuket Island in Thailand. It has a population of 60,000 people. It was not directly affected by the tsunami of 26/12/2004.
On February 13, 2004, the town was elevated to city status.

Yes Chinese influence can be seen in many parts of Thailand, and you have shown it well here, with that golden dragon. Well framed nice soft colors and correct sharpness makes it a pleasant image to look at.

A very nice composition with a good balance struck between all the different elements. Lovely diffused lighting resulting in some very appealing hues. Very good clarity.

very nice details with the fountain, the flowers, the basin or the stairs behind where the borads tell me something not to be understood by me. All this around the golden dragon. I think a bit overexposure in the background but in no way disturbing because of the amount of colourful details in front. I like the POV for this one with the framing.

Hi Chris. Wherever I look I see something beautiful and it’s hard to go wrong with a picture when it has that going for it! It looks like a bright tropical sun out but if you took it during January I'm not so sure. Nevertheless you managed the light well. Great shot Chris!

Its not often when you get to see Phuket without its teeming visitors, like the way the dragon dominates the view with its obvious Chinese influence.

I've been to Phuket in the the beginning of the 80's and it looks like it has changed a lot :) it became a city...The fountain with the golden dragon look good from a good POV. There are many details to see and the colors are well rendered.

une très belle vue, mais encore une fois assez exposée, un rien de trop.
Un paysage et des ornementations qui nus plongent vraiment sur cet autre continent.
Un cadrage très réussi avec ce dragon qui domine tout.
Cela ressemble assez à un dessin.

what captures my attention here is teh great details you have captured on the dragons golden body.excellent use of light and the color is great.
