The long corridor leading to Shwezigon Pagoda is very often photographed and appears in guidebooks or on covers. It is an attractive place as the view differs a lot with the time of the day. The play of lights and shadows there is fantastic. So I also tried to make a classic shot there and even show it here.

here I like the long perspective in the hall and the contrast between the shade at right and on the ceiling with full light at left between the pillars
very visual impact
Have a nice day, best regards

Fantastyczny POV i perspektywa, piekna tonacja i gra swiatlo-cieni. Ladna praca.

It is hard to keep up with your posts, all around the world !
This may be a classic view, but you have done it full justice. Good exposure, keeping all details just so, and the people add a real sense of purpose. I would have wanted the place bare before I photographed it, but this is better !

Un mot devrait suffire pour exprimer la beauté de cette composition : Ravissement !
Félicitations à tous les niveaux pour cette belle et très intéressante réalisation.

You know I love perspectives!! ;)
And this is a great one, with amazing light play by columns, very good to have some subjects on the scene...I like it very much!!

Cette perspective sous la voute nous donne une image d'une grande profondeur. La lumière difficile à cet endroit est bien maitrisée.

Belle perspective très joliment soulignée par ces beaux jeux d'ombre et de lumière. Une belle photo!Amicalement

You're right, the light and shadows work beautifully with the converging lines to give a strong impression of lines, perspective and geometric shapes.
I find it so interesting that the man is walking towards the camera, completely oppsite to the strong desire to move from the f/g into the b/g.
A lovely shot, sharp, warm and fulfilling.
My warm regards,

giustamente hai insistito su questo gioco di luci ed ombre del porticato della pagoda gestendo con la abituale perizia fotografica la esposizione delle luci e la profondità fantastica dell'immagine.

An amazing never ending perspective there. The effect of sidelighting produced striking lit and shady areas all along the lefthandside part of the corridor. I very much liked your light management here; every detail is crisp and clear. The presence of people helps to vitalize the stagnant scenery. A great shot, thank you. Have a good evening

The depth is certainly amazing and the light has created a fantastic pattern. Luckily some people are spread out along the way, aiding the perspectve and providing life. This reminds me of some old painting where the artist wanted to prove his skill at creating a perspective.

Your inclusion of all the people here really emphesizes the regularity of the architecture. A very fine perspective and a well composed picture.

Hello Malgozorta, This is a most interesting building with the construction designed to provide various environments based on the light of the day. I envy your being able to travel to all of these strange places and provide your viewers these excellent presentaiton.
This is a beautiful and well maintained structure, but you know I sometimes wonder how much a state or country spends to maintain these beautiful buildings. The poverty and well being of the people seems to take second place sometimes. I guess that is the way it is. What a contrast to Mendocino County. ha ha. Warm Regards, Roger

a fascinating perspective and atmosphere, great light management with the details visible in all areas, there is no lens distortion, vertical lines fall straight down and this is certainly due to a very good job in PP, very beautiful even the warm colors, great shot...
have a lovely day...

Very picturesque scene from that attractive world. I like the perspective and the contrasts. Well taken.
baddori (20011) 2012-05-18 23:22
Paese splendido e bellissime opere architettoniche.
Il contrasto bellezza e qualità della vita della popolazione.
La foto evidenzia bei colori ed una ottima gestione della luce .
Un contrasto l'elemento umano.

Love your Pov, and Dof, Malgo in this scene in this interesting Pagoda.The play of light is super through the columns, Well done, Cheers Iain.

Missed this one. Fantastic use of diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point with the people providing scale & context. Excellent shadow detail & sharpness & I like the repetition of the patterns formed by the sunlight at left. Tfs!
patdeph (35748) 2012-05-22 10:48
the perspective is splendid, and I love the graphism given by the columns and the alternation of light and shadows.And I love the man walking there in his pypical clothes.Magnificent!

Nice perspective indeed with a good balance between lights and shades.
Fresh ambiance inside.
