great use of the nd filter. love the perspective.

my only critique is that it took me a second to find the subject. maybe had you been a little closer? i know that is difficult and to not tip off the subject they are being photographed. especially on a tripod for a long exposure.

G'day vv

What a beautiful capture of "the faraway land" in the midst of the -no doubt- noise, hustle & bustle of modern life. A great capture, movement within stillness, poise & dignity alongside urban ugliness

Wonderful & thanks for sharing
Regards, Phil

Amazing that in this City with its population, you manage to capture the solitude so well.

A great shot as always, but have to agree with Hards80, the subject is a litle bit to far away. But anyways, I always like your photos

Thank you, all, for the encouraging comments.

#2) Regarding the subject being too small, I'm wondering if a crop would work? Regardless, I'll remember the advice to try to come closer next time.


I thought I'd add another one...

#3) Awed by the Temple to Knowledge.

Also agree about the subject being to far away in the first one. The crop is better. But a great shot anyway as always. Itīs impossible to not love your photos.

Best regards/Daniel
