Another from my travel archives.
The Terracotta Army was buried with the first Emperor of Qin (Qin Shi Huangdi) in 210-209 BC near Xian, China.
They were discovered in March 1974 by local farmers drilling a water well. It is believed to have taken 700,000 workers and craftsmen 38 years to complete.
There are some 8100 lifesize figues of warriors and horses. They vary in height and uniform and hairstyle in accordance with rank.

To preserve the figues, no flash photography is allowed and no tripods either.

Just reurned from Xian. You have managed to catch more detail to the warriors than I did. Good shot under what I know to be difficult conditions.

Nicely composed & exposed, I bet you were being hassled to buy pictures, not take them. I've just booked a trip to China for summer 2008 to take in the solar eclipse, hope to see these guys on the way to the Gobi Desert.

Really quite a disturbing image (though not as disturbing as Devout...) The blue tones in the rock add to the other-worldly feel, they really look as though they are marching towards you.

Under the circumstances you look to of captured a great imge.You must of used a high ISO and a wide apperture to allow you to get a sharp image, not allways the best combination to get decent images but you have succeeded here.
Thanks Mick.
