Photographer's Note

Swaddee Krub everybody,

Songkrang 2008,I'd entered the second round in the late afternoon and between i finding the location to shoot Phrasat Phradepbhidorn.I still saw the beautiful scene of Phra Mondop from the west that softer sunlight in late afternoon impressed me so much.I took this shot by captured Dhyani Buddhas statue on foreground to start the interesting line to BG.

For post process,Firstly I croped then use curve a little bit to composition and adjust contrast. Secondly,I duplicat layer to split sky layer and use gradient effact and cooling filter for sky area.Thirdly,I use color balance and hue/saturation tool to adjust the color for architecture.Finally,I used smart sharpen, framing and resize to finish.

For information in brife: Phra Si Rattana Chedi, which it's claimed (somewhat improbably) houses ashes of the Buddha.Phra Mondop, in the middle of terrace, is a library built in Thai style by Rama I, known for its excellently crafted Ayutthaya-style mother-of-pearl doors, bookcases containing the Tripitaka (sacred Buddhist manuscripts), human- and dragon-headed nagas (snakes), and statues of Chakri kings.Prasat Phrathepbidorn(The Royal Pantheon), with full size statues of the first seven kings of the reigning Chakri dynasty (Rama I - Rama VII). Only open on April 6th, the anniversary of the founding of this dynasty.

For further information : wat prakeaw and you could look for this location in the map of wat pra kaew and more knowledge about Dhyani Buddhas
