Hi Folks

Been a while but here is another shot. My mom has been complaining so I did my best uploading one ;). School started and it's been busy!!!
During the weekend we went to E-mei Shan, one of the holy mountains in China. Went up the mountain on Saturday and had some time left on Sunday. So we decided to go to this temple close by. It was not finished yet but we could go in and saw a great place.
They told us it was the second biggest in Asia. The fun thing was... nobody was there so all the time to take pictures you would never be able to take.
So here is the first one of the weekend.
Enjoy it and hopefully another one tomorrow.

Great shot!

Hi David,

Beautiful deep red, but you make me want to see more pictures (in the WS perhaps?).
I think I would have been standing at a right angle facing the wall.
Strong composition this way.


PS Je moeder heeft helemaal gelijk ^-^! - ik kan me zo voorstellen dat ze ook geniet van jouw foto's zo op TL)

Een rustige uitnodigende prent.
Mooie bij elkaar passende kleuren

Love it! Beautifully restrained composition and tones, good sharp details. This shot just works!

Hi David,
This time the white sky helped out. :) The diffused light gave you a wonderful even exposure and soft shades. I like the simplicity of the composition. The single chair agianst the bright red wall is very powerful. I like that you kept a slight diagonal line in the composition to make the photo a bit more playful.

Tja, eigenlijk komt er maar 1 woord naar boven borrelen, David, en dat is "zen".
Ondanks het rood, een kleur die toch vaak in onze westerse wereld als aggressief wordt gezien, straalt dit beeld absolute rust uit. Die cementen vloer zou je eventueel met een color fill laag een kleur van versgeharkte aarde kunnen geven, zodat het lijkt of de stoel in een zen-tuin staat. Maar goed, het is al best leuk zoals je het nu hebt gepresenteerd.
En, eigenlijk al in raw beginnen werken? Ik maak nu alleen nog raw beelden, de jpg laat ik op computer genereren indien nodig...

Dear David Lambert!
Amazing chair.
Amazing wall.
Wonderful composition.
Original take.
