Apologies to Flanagan & Allen this is the best title I could come up with Smile

Back to the Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay (Burma/Myanmar) for another shiny floor. I spent quite a while 'loitering' on this corner for the right person to come along. Unfortunately this lady was walking away from me but the reflection/colour on the floor was the better of those I took. I came back for a second spell in v2 and captured this monk walking towards me. I lost the reflections though and the sun has moved resulting in less of the golden lustre on the walls. I've gone with v1 first as the colour is more important to me.

Many thanks for your VCCs on my last, one more 'Little Miss' to come at some point. A big thank you to Ronnie for his UA and comment on Little Madam.

Both are beautiful, and among the best so far of the series.
What makes V1 special is the golden reflection in the floor, and the way it balances the image which could otherwise be 'top-heavy', dominated by the arches. The reflection draws the eye to the floor and then leads it up towards the figure. It also gives a sense of depth and mystery.

V1 without a shadow of a doubt. The figure and stance symbolising the mystery of the place, rather than taking over the composition, and allowing full rein to the colour and reflections.

Well 'scene' potential there, racking up all those walls and arches to create so much depth. I thought the figure was a statue to begin with, must be because her top matches the red tiles. The colours are excellent and the golden reflection on the floor helps lead you through to the figure.

Wonderful rich colours upper walls and tiles, and the reflections in the shiny floor are very striking in V 1.

No wonder you hung about here and re visited it - the intertwining arches are wonderful and the
impact of those totally opposite colours is amazing.
The reflections on the floor in V1 does give a lovely balance to the image
and the light enhancing the yellows/golds is amazing.

The overall effect is stunningly good. Whislt the colours and reflections are excellent, the intricate web of arches is what makes these images so special to me. Its as if the builder plaited them as it was built, fluid and yet solid... pure beauty. On the otherside, the lady looks as ig=f she is peeking round the corner at something she isn't supposed to be looking at, adding a sense mystery, as the viewer of this shot it peaks my interest and I'd want to know what she was looking at.

Too many words from me I suspect, but the work deserves my feelings. Terrific.

Oh and V2 is just as blooming good.

V1 is a sort of mysterious image with fine colors and details.

Two cracking shots Dave, I prefer the sense of intrigue/mystery in V1 but they are both great.

Quote: Both are beautiful, and among the best so far of the series.
What makes V1 special is the golden reflection in the floor, and the way it balances the image which could otherwise be 'top-heavy', dominated by the arches. The reflection draws the eye to the floor and then leads it up towards the figure. It also gives a sense of depth and mystery.
Moira

Rgds., Jim
Moira has said it so well it would be churlish of me to try and better it Dave, and the plethora of awards tell their own tale!
