A very interesting capture of this chinese graveyard with these Terracotta sculptures.
Very good light and accurate sharpness.
Excellent details which were a must to recognise the figures from the rocks.
Good work, my friend of this geological site.
Must have been tough trying to make a decision as to what to photograh, its repititous yet so intriguing and educative.
Great shot for this theme.
Tripods forbidden because they could dig in and make more deterioration? Or because of limited space for visitors to walk without tripping over pods.?

This must be very interesting to see in person. I've seen articles on the Terracotta Warriers and it's great to see them so well captured by your lens. Just amazing! Have a great weekend.

This is just amazing, more fantasy than fiction!
Thank you for the opportunity to see this remarkable historical graveyard.
Under difficult conditions, you have captured a shot which gives good details and reveals colours, oranges and greens, which I would not have expected.
It is strange about the tripod ban!
I was not allowed to use a monopod in a museum in Germany and there were no crowds, vertually no people! But, like you, a flash was okay!
I reasoned that it was to prevent excellent quality phographs being taken which could possibly compete with the official merchandise. With me, I think they were being extremely speculative!

Cet endroit si connu et si particulier permet une participation très originale au thème de la semaine. Une vision assez inédite du lieu.

Hello, Chris -
Unusual and fascinating entry for the Friday theme - the Terracotta Warriors have always fascinated me. It is great that you saw them site in person. You did well with the details here considering your improvised "tripod;" the rough contour are brought out by the contrast and shadows. The broken figures scattered through the frame create a unique feel. Warm earthy tones. Well done!

We often think of graveyard with tombstone and cross. But for other religion it may look different with all the same importance and meaning. The image looks a little as a mess, you should have clean a little before shooting. Just joking, it is obvious that archeological site are often messy. Tood exposure and focus. And of course good scanning treatment. TFS.
