unfortunately my camera took a fall from the tripod and is in for reparation, so for the time being I have to resolve to my stock photos.
Here we have the statue of a Buddha in a public parc in the city of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand with some beautiful tulips in the foreground that give a hint of spring to the scene.
Over here spring is still some weeks away, although today I spotted the first crocuses in our garden

Hi Daniel - A simple and effective shot. The floral cover is wonderfully colorful and really nicely lit, and the presentation of the statue with the tree trunk is quite lovely. Thanks!
PS - Sorry to hear about the camera - hopefully it is a quick and painless (and reasonably inexpensive) recovery!

Wow! Beautiful! Awesome capture of those tulips in front of the Buddha. Wonderful colors. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

un colpo fortunato questa bella fotografia notevole per la composizione ricca di colori per la successione dei fiori, ma anche splendida grazie alla posizione della statua che sembra essere viva ai piedi dell'albero.
In questa ci sono tutti i colori dell'oriente e puoi essere ben fiero di averla scattata.
Ottima anche la tecnica di ripresa con nitidezza, luminosità e contrasto più che buoni e indovinato il taglio verticale che dà slancio alla composizione.
Ciao e buona serata

Sorry to hear about your camera (the same happened to me two years ago so I know how it hurts and how much it costs) but glad you let us have a look at this beauty!
Excellent travel image. The foreground of beautiful colourful tulips makes it special.
You just made me miss spring so much!
Pozdrowienia z Kosowa

The religiosity and serenity depicted in your composition. The light and the colours creates a wonderful scenery. Finally the Buddha pops out the image.
Have a nice evening,

Beautiful shot with great colors - especially the amazing tulips, but also the bronze Buddha. Nicely framed and well-exposed.

C'est un bien joli coin de jardin qui transporte le spectateur dans une belle ambiance zen. L'image est agréablement colorée grâce à ce tapis de tulipes qui offre un bel écrin au bouddha doré et nous donne un avant-goût du printemps.

Oh, I am sorry to hear about your camera - I hope that you get it repaired quickly and without too much expense!
But it is nice to revisit some older photographs and sometimes (as in this case) we can find some wonderful treasures. In fact, you have been sitting on this beautiful photograph for over two years!
This is a simply and beautifully composed photograph with the most lovely soft lighting. The statue of Buddha is perfectly and centrally placed in the frame and almost glows in the soft light beneath the tree. And what a reamrkable foreground - hundreds of beautiful and different coloured tulips make a fabulously colourful foreground.
Beautiful colours, perfect light, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

Wonderfully composed capture. Very nicely balanced between the foreground tulips and the Buddha in the back. Colors, and detail are perfectly captured. Well done Daniel and thanks.

A superb picture Daniel, vivid colors and excellent sharpness, a good idea to include the garden
Like the big banian tree close to the statue
timecapturer (49288) 2013-02-17 3:20
this is such a striking shot. Full of wonderful colours and light that just makes it so effective and attractive. Superb execution with excellent DOF and light management that just makes it shine so beautifully. Well done!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

Very nice capture of this golden Budha in front of a huge old tree (itself almost a cultural heritage) and looking towards a wonderfull field of nice tulips.
As if sitting over an orieantal silk carpet.
TFS and ein schoenes Wochenende
Noel_Byrne (28166) 2013-02-17 4:27
This is a really delightful shot. The light hitting the many colours of flower is superb, and you could not have chosen a better composition. The golden statue looks excellent against the natural colours in the scene, and the statue looks almost to be smiling at the color and life that spring is bringing back to its garden.
The gnarled tree is another fantastic addition. Really beautiful shot, thanks
All the best
abmdsudi (48812) 2013-02-17 6:14
Nice how you have brought out the vibrant delicate colors to make it a marvellous cheery shot with the central figure watching closely. It's well worked to bring out the glorious warm colours with all the right elements blended together. Congrats. TFS

Lovely presentation, a true beautiful colored scene.
Have a fine day.

Amazing shot Daniel.
Nice lights and exposure
Very well done.
All the best for a Happy Sunday
mayjayne (5152) 2013-02-25 4:14
On very rare occasions do we get a composition featuring tulips with the Buddha. This is a lovely and well composed shot - the Buddha seems to be in serenity with his surroundings. Lovely colours of Spring !

Salut cher Daniel
A wonderful photo, with great depth of field, made even more so by the profusion of flowers in the foreground and the choice of the verticale frame. The textures of the flowers and the tree trunk are just lovely. Thanks for sharing, excellent work.
worldcitizen (7890) 2013-03-02 17:01
You composed this photo perfectly. I love the bursts of color in the foreground, with the beautiful Buddha resting serenely in the background. It is so visually appealing, and the scene just pulls me in. Very nice! :-)

I've been there twice, but never in this season. Tulips make a great foreground for the Buddha statue. A very good composition with very nice colours!
SWEETFREEDOM (24118) 2013-03-10 4:39
very nice scene with the Buddah statue repared by a big tree in bg and these wonderful colorful tulips in fg.
serp2000 (42554) 2013-07-22 10:36
I was here on March of 2012, Chiang mai is very nice place. But I can say Thailand is my favorite country in Asia. Just a paradise!
Good idea, excellent composition! TFS!
Best wishes from Russia!
frunchy (1517) 2013-08-25 5:58
very nice combination of the tulips and the statue in the back. The Viewer will always start looking at the back and then go up to the Buddha.
Nicely done, F.
