These are some fantastic images! I love the solitude portrait of the person(man?woman?) sitting. It tells much.
Her hands reflect years of manual labor, washing, making food, possibly tending fields...and ger expression is one of quiet solitude and introspection.
The bowl of colored yarn at her feet adds much to the mood of this composition.
The ruins, the palace, the monks......wonderful
I will note that the 3rd from the bottom has a halo edging the left side of the ruin but not really detracting.
A great series of a rare place in our world.
Dan, thanks for the compliments. Actually, that is not halo from post processing but from the use of the telephoto lens and focus on the sun far away using a wide open F-stop (F4, in this case, the lens is the 70-200mm F4), therefore there was that fuzzy, blurry look on the temple. I could try to fix that so that it is blurry but not having that hazy looking outline, but I elected to leave it as is.
On the portrait, that was a woman, and I was just lucky to catch her gazing out the door of the temple or shrine where she was a keep of that.
Thanks again for the complement.
