The Chinese Hainan Temple, in a back alley of Na Thon, on Ko Samui. As it is Chinese New Year, I thought I would upload something appropriate.

Maybe I'd preffered a more little centered view to emphatize the simmetry.
Anyway, the nice colours and the POV makes the picture great.

恭喜發財 Chris !
with no doubt appropriate for the Chinese new year, even though this one is in Thailand I could identify it as chiniese because I have seen a very similar one in HK, the elements are strikingly similar. Nice comprehensive view with well mastered exposure.
Have a nice day,

Good pick for Chinese New Year, Chris. Nice showing of the vividly colorful and ornate entrance to this temple - it takes a while and is fun to look at this and absorb all the details.

This is a timely shot, with Chinese New Year upon us again. I like the incredible colour in this, which is very vibrant and alive, and makes it seem like we are there. Well done!

Lovely colourful temple.
The roof is very rich decorated.
And I think all these Chinese dragons symbolize exactly the Chinese New Year.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2007-02-19 20:24
Very interesting temple, I like the colorful decoration with these mythological figures. Very nice colors, good light and framing.

Hi Chris. Well you sure don't have any lack of colors in this one! The tight composition keeps the eyes on your colorful focal point. A person could be useful for scale though. I've never seen a temple like that. tfs Chris!

striking colours! I am not sure where to look at, as there are a lot of details. Amazing one. I have to force myself to stop watching.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Most appropriate for Chinese New Year. The colourful tones and hues are remarkably and you have managed to control the bright light. The green foliage really enhances and provides balance to this scene. The Temple appears almost like a model sitting in a museum. Very fine work. Cheers.

Amazing shot of that facades' Temple in which the colours seems to be alive and are very rich.
Excellent point of view and excellent sharpening, too. I will chose this one as one of my favorites.
Well done, my friend!
Have a nice week,

A very colorful temple with very good details and sharpness, it's impossible to count so many different colors used in this Chinese (in Thailand) temple. Good point of view and an amazing composition.
Well done, TFS.

A fine example of Chinese architecture with rich & colourful motifs.A very apt post for the Chinese new year. You certainly show us exciting places & architecture, a real world traveller

Hi Chris - the sharpness brings out every little ornate detail in focus, the coconut palms behind make a perfect companion.
axiotea (21649) 2007-03-05 2:23
An appropriate photo for the Chinese New year, showing the beautiful/colorful temple well ornamented, with many details to see on it. (I was also in Thailand at the time of New Year, but only in Bangkok). I like as well the palms behind the temple and the gray sky which contrasts well with the Temple's colors.

It's incredibly full of colors. It's joyful for the eyes.
Very nice picture.

What a colors Chris, really pleasant to look at, a fine subject to the Chinese New Year.
You edit quite light, I was wondering, a multiply layer in 50% opacity brings the quality out on my screen.
paura (47184) 2009-01-24 4:09
Details in the temple façade is really veri interestng in your well composed photo. Colours are also a top point.
