Maybe a bit of an image quality problem, but a very nice photo with some interesting subjects nonetheless. I like how you've made the open hand at bottom the subject here, that's quite effective. Nice color and POV.

A great POV with this perspective that we offer two beautiful Buddha figures, I like the diagonal composition of the images in the background, the trees gives a nice background graphics to image, rich in color and razor sharp.
Good start to the week.

nice angle showing the sculptures and their colors very well, the light in the background was a trouble but the main elements of the image are well shown.

I love these Buddha statues, and its something that I dont see very often at home, so very nice to see your capture here. I really like the point of view you chose too, it allows us to see both statues in a 3D style, and with really great depth. Fine rich colors too.
All the best

nice the view of the sitting Buddhas statues as the well chosen POV that creates depth and perspective in the scene.
A good reportrage shot from the Monkey temple.
