The "complex" of the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, is probably the "highlight" of Thailand's capital, Bangkok. Besides the luxury of the old palace, you 'll see there one of the 3 most important Bhuddist temples in Bangkok, Wat Phra Kaew (the other two are Wat Pho and Wat Arun), also known as "Temple of the Emerald Bhuddha". The travels and adventures of Emerald Buddha (or Phra Kaew Morakot, a statue probably made of jasper and not emerald) could be the scenario of the next sequel of Indiana Jones. The colours and the ornament of the temples are of extreme beauty and there are so many gold leafs that you will be tempted
* I cropped the bottom of the photo and changed a little bit the perspective as my friend Shailendra (s10001in) suggested. You can see the result in workshop.

Bonita foto con bonitos colores. La luz también era buena y eso hace que los colores resalten aún más.
Un saludo, Oscar

Leo la nota y no puedo dejar de imaginarme este lugar con música de John Williams de fondo.
Sencillamente una buena composición con buenos colores y un resultado muy atractivo.

Hercules Milas ,
Vivid colors & sharp image,
But may be I am wrong..but I feel strange of POV.
Is it not better to crop bit more of Green ground.
Bit tight cropping may make this image more effective!!!

The place does really look terrific.
I like very much how you exposed and processed the image, with very good colors and great dynamyc range (this still being the challenge for digital cameras), which rendered nice highlights and good shadows.
Regarding the composition I have some mixed feelings about the FOV, which I feel that could have been a little wider (on the sides).
Anyway, I think that the idea of cropping part of the grass on the foreground resulted in a better image.

What a beautiful and interesting architecture of this palace. Very nice combination of different forms and the variety of colors.
