Thien Mu Pagoda is a monastery established by the Nguyen Dynasty in the 17th century on the shore of the Perfume River, which is famous for its orchids.
Every floor of the 21m high tower is dedicated to a different Buddha... This tower which was added in 1844 is considered the unofficial symbol of Hue.

You caught my attention with this one, with the beautiful Thien Mu pagoda serving as a background for this street shot. The light is very special, with plenty of luminosity in front of a darkish sky.
Very atmospheric shot brilliantly presented.

Nice using of wide angle which definitively give a very good composition of your picture.
All the best,

A wonderfully composed picture with the man on the bicycle strongly in the FG. The colours of the pagoda and the steps are excellent and well done for including the branches to frame the picture. Excellent image.

Thanks for your honest comments, on my last post.
This is a great shot, the scenery itself is beautiful and classic composition of the temple at the entrace. The stair lead us in.
The person on the bicycle made this composition complete and more interesting with the essence of the Vietnam even stronger.

Wide angle vertical, really stretching it to balance everything out! It works. I like the soft pink of the tower against the darker sky. The man on the bicycle is a nice finishing touch.

Good capture. I wish the man on bicycle wasn't in the shadow of the flamboyant tree.
Thank you for visiting and sharing with us.
