[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Borobudur is a ninth century Mahayana Buddhist monument in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. A main dome is located at the center of the top platform, and is surrounded by seventy-two Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupa.
When I was there last year, paying a few extra dollars at the gate I had Borobudur to myself for an hour before the gates opened at 6am. Very special.

Impressive monumental,Composition and PP create calm and equanimity,Form of subject in foreground also expressly stillness that conform to overall mood of this scene.Good work,TFS.

Very jealous, Nico - would love to go to this place and snap a few shots - and would be delighted if there were close to this in terms of quality and atmosphere. Nicely composed, well taken - an interesting photograph.

Hi Nico,

I had to get used to the halo's around the domes. But in some way it also adds to the misty and surreal environment there. I like it in this composition!

Greetings,
Dennis
