What a mood you have captured here. The overall gold tone is captivating.

Tim from Adelaide, Australia

Very nice Emily! Nicely put together. You have good eyes on how to put a shot together :)

@Tim: thank you =) haha i just realised i was actually "zooming out" from 1 buddha, to 3 main ones, then the walls, and the entire room.

Lorna from Regina, Canada

Very nice treatment. I find one Buddha soothing, I'd probably fall into a trance with this many.

@Lorna: yup..first instinct was to take overall shot.. later tried to bring up the details (the one Buddha photo). Initially was not gonna post this photo, but thought would be interesting to share the scale of it

hugo poon from hong kong, Hong Kong

Yes, keep experimenting and have fun... Normally I'll hesitate to apply a strong sepia cause the effect is usually a little "distracting" but I'm pleasantly surprised that it worked pretty well here!:-) Great lighting and atmosphere!

@hugo poon: somehow this sephia has a vintage feel to it.. "washing over me" feel/atmosphere.. i've never used sephia too.. thanks hugo!

JJ from Jersey City, United States

WOW that is amazingly Grand i never imagined it to be that large, love the golden tones, creates an interesting feel to the capture

Amazing temple & nice process! Even more amazing is the guy to the left trying to get a steady shot ;)

@Howard F.: lol, that would be one of the teachers who brought up around during the taiwan school trip. it was fun exchanging cameras with him n some other schoolmates to see what photos each other took
