Temple guards

By Aristeidis
I took this one during our visit to the Golden Palace, Bangkok. I tried to convey the large number of statues they had there with the shallow dof.

An interesting shot. I like oblique angles and getting the depth. However I think I would ahve focused on the first guard as my key image rather than the second one. I also wonder if either a reflector at the time of the shot or a bit of tweaking in RAW could get the jewels in the aprons to "pop" more

I've taken the exact same shot from the other direction...

I think focusing on the 2nd or 3rd is the right thing to do here. Makes a good pattern, great colours (maybe need a little boost for a bit of 'pop').

Thank you all for your constructive comments. It is nice to get useful advice now and then. I only avoided focusing on the nearest statue because I thought it might have blurred those further away too much.
