A nice assembly of monks dressed in and surrounded by fine colours. The oldest man seems satisfied with just sitting and contemplating while the younger ones discuss something important.

I like this photo and also the caption explaining about the region and the Budhism. I believe the photo shows much about their culture. Thanks.

A very good and harmonic colour combination of the blue-green door with the dark red monks. A very interesting picture with all three of them.

Hi Patrick. A beautiful photo and an informative text. On this photo I like most about the naturalness and spontaneity. Also, I like the great calm. Excellently realized - as always. Rgds, Wolfgang.

C'est la belle vie, et une vie qui visiblement conserve. Le triple portrait est bien capturé. Une image exotique, intéressnte et de bonne qualité. Bravo.

good job to include the blue door -or whatever it is- on the left side. The picture fits very well into TE. Here in Germany people with cigarettes in their fingers immediatly try to hide the hand behind their backs, if a camera is spotting on them.
Thanks for sharing

Trois portraits différents vu l'âge, le jeune est très attentif et concentré sur sa leçon, un joli moment capturer, très colorées

Une scène de vie paisible bien rendue par le claquant de ses couleurs.

A daylife scène pas très stressante...et bien colorée. J'admire les dures conditions de vie que ces moines mènent et leur toujours heureux semblant.
Bon fin de semaine!

Salut cher Patrick
Oh what a group of sweet looking men. Their faces are so kind and soft. And the one in the middle having a smoke, how funny, I can't imagine monks smoking! Beautiful colours and good placement of your subjects within the frame.
Warm regards e belle soiree

Hello Patrick - The monks seem so at ease with one another and with you the photographer. Funny that the middle one, who appears to be the novice, is having a quiet smoke while he studies. Where I used to go to church we would have been severely chastised for doing such a thing! Guess that's one of the examples of tolerance displayed by those of the Buddhist persuasion! Super DL shot

I have looked at this photo more than once.
This is an important photo, in my opinion, and it is not that easy to comment. So many information, details, colours, culture, each men one generation..wow! The left door is the cherry on the top... how clean also is the road? :-) I vote 10+!!!

En pleine séance d'apprentissage. La porte bleue est un agréable contrepoint à leur tenues safranées.

wonderful shot this. So full of character and intrigue. The body language is so expressive and you have captured the atmosphere so perfectly. A flawless execution but then that goes without saying with your presentations.
Enjoy the weekend - regards Brian.

Well composed using the principle of three with vibrant colour & good sharpness of the Nepalese Buddhist monks. Well managed perspective & effective tight framing to exclude any distracting external elements. Bon weekend!

Hello dear Patrick,
I am always enjoying your photo work from places that I will never have the opportunity to visit, beautiful scene and triple portrait of these monks, TfS!
Have a nice Sunday, Vasilis.

this is an interesting scene, I like how you captured these 3 generations, details are very nice, well seen and presented,

These monks don't look typically Nepalese, but more Tibetan! Interesting interaction between the trio captured in a candid moment

Très différent de la pollution des nouveaux médias électroniques, tels Iphone et Twitter qui développent l'individualisme de nos enfants!
Image exotique touchante par son humanisme.
