Has the appeal of the reality. When I looked at it first, I thought it lacked the definition of some other art and maybe could do with some more but then I looked again. This is not staged, not that staging is a bad thing but with this kind of rendition, reality must be absolute. Target area leaves are in focus as is the monk - nice, but the background, place of departing (History) is past and now out of focus. I really like that, especially as the foliage on the other side of the foreground, (Not really the point of focus) is also out of focus but to a lesser degree. I hope it is fair to say that even a Buddhist could observe this picture of "Passive Intent" that is in accord with the surroundings and adds to the general appeal.
The Artist thought this was FAIR
14 out of 14 deviants thought this was fair.
This is such a tender moment, well done capturing it so beautifully
This is so amazing! I love this style and composition! Great work!
Is anyone else somewhat bothered by the bag of chips in the bottom left corner? Astounding shot though I love it
It bothers me too. In Laos, as in many Asian countries, rubbish is everywhere. It seems as if they just don't understand that it not good for the environment. The road was littered with rubbish on either side. I was considering shopping it out, but I feel that an honest picture is better than a pretty one. But yeah, thanks !
I like your point it wouldn't be the same picture without it, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed the rubbish
lol didnt even notice XD it bothers me now :3 lol
A very beautiful image. Love the richness of the colors and the clean focus on the monk against the beautiful background. Nicely done.
Itīs simple but at the same time beautiful, a moment with a lot of meaning.
Congrats on your Daily Deviation!

I think this photo contains hidden meaning. I like it. And congratulations on the DD!

Have a nice day!
I love the rich play on colors of this shot. His fiery orange robe is set off perfectly with all of that lush green. Beautiful capture and very well composed.
Thanks, the monks in laos have a very orangey coloured robe unlike those of other countries. Myanmar monks, for example, have much redder robes.
The peaceful surroundings fits good.
Very nice picture, love the colors and the position very much
wow you captured him so well! Very beautiful photo!
nothing to say ...do not want to break the moment....love it
Congrats on your well deserved DD, matey!
