Taken from one of the many pagodas in the Bagan village and was fortunate to have a very good light for this shot.

wonderfully atmospheric shot...have had a play in LR4..lifted some of the shadows....hope it hasn't detracted from the original concept
Very nicely spotted and huge effect. I might just have preferred the cart and people a touch further unto the frame. May be not possible. You give no exposure info which helps us understand. Whilst being so effective, the image is rather unsharp everywhere and I suspect a low shutter speed and movement. Actually, that doesn't detract as much in this case as it would in others.
For me your picture is in the last bottom two thirds (see uploaded mod) yes I know it leans to the left but maybe there is a bit more space on the original to move the people into the center.
If it works out you will have a great atmospheric shot.
Great depth in this image........John
The plains of Bagan are littered with wonderful pagodas and temples. I'm sure you will have captured many more which show them in more detail. I realise you have included the one in this image for context but the sky to me is too bright. By cropping out the sky (and pagoda) it reduces the overall tonal range (think that's the correct terminology ) and let's the image sit easier on the eye. I've put up a mod to that effect, with a touch of extra contrast and a little sharpening.
This is a gorgeous shot. Almost magical, with that warm light, dust, ane the L shaped line of the people.
There are some good points already made, and good mods.
Looking at the image for a while, I can see these people appear to be coming along a trail from the pagodas. So, for me, I would think leaving the pagodas in, but adding width will balance the shot.
Some work on light and shadow to reduce the very bright top, add sharpening which works well, and the result is what you see in the mod.
Hope you like it, and view large.
Thanks for all the suggestions and modifications. Much appreciated. This platform has such a great community where novice like me can learn from many masters. Happy shooting guys(gals).
This is a beautiful timeless image. Great photography.
nice image of true life.......
This is a beautiful image with so many different mods.
I think banehawi has got it sussed.
If you like somebody's mod or advice - it is good to nominate as constructive.
The critique team and members often give very good advice an dwe all learn from each other.
I second that. He did spent time looking at this shot thoroughly. Good that we are all learning and sharing from one another.
Lovely composed with the portrait affect. The light is spot on with that great soft affect. Well done.
I love the lighting and atmosphere of this shot. And the fact that you saw the potential in capturing it.
Paul and Western Red said it for me. Looks more like a magical morning mist. One discovers the horse and buggy moments after first seeing the image. That only adds to the overall charm. A fine ' two stage ' image. Full of interest. TG
