This shot is a very good idea Sagaya. Showing scale using a person is often a good approach. Your exposure is good considering the very bright sky.

In this though, the boy is sitting, and so tiny compared to the Buddha that he loses the battle, - in fact hes easy to miss!

But, - Im sure you used the lens you had to its best advantage. Having the boy not as close to the bottom, a little straighter, - and if you could have asked him to move off centre, - all would have been better, - tried some of this in my mod, - but it has turned out a decent shot.

Its also possible to crop in a landscape format, which would lose the Buddha, but could make the child more prominent.

Excellent idea for a shot Sagaya. It needs a bit of tidying up as per Willie's mod, but the idea is lovely.
