Good Luko 2005-11-24 18:19

I'm sorry to stumble down grossly into the fiesta down here, but I have to say that in my sense this is nowhere as good or inventive as your other shots.
I feel this one like posed, this is a no moment at all shot, more over, this is not a 3 but a 4 composition. I can't take away the second hand and it unbalances the whole.
So I think you've got my feelings here Mark, it lacks the life and move I've been praising in your other shots. On the other hand, I'm not so surprised it has attracted the most positive opinions as it is a bit postcardish, I mean gathering the usual clichιs one can imagine about buddhism (elderness=wisdom, monk, buddhas, flowers, etc.). Could work for stock photo, although not my taste.

Default To Luko: undestand your points

about the clichι and especially about the second hand (although the fact that it's right over his head...? perhaps if it was facing down...?) the posed feeling is what i like least about it, perhaps i got "infected" by those myanmar and vietnamese photographers :-) having said that (although it's not my fav shot from shwedagon) i still like it mostly for the colors, the peacefulness and the fond memories it invokes. thanks for the honest critique luko.

Yep, Mark, I think you named it... now that you say it, It reminds me the kind of photos Myanmar photographers sell at the entrance of some temples (Remember the one in Bagan who Ye knew and told us any of his shots were carefully posed, even re-enacted...), although very well made technically but somehow soul-less.
