Worshipping at Wat Phra Kaew

Just like the Grand Palace in Bangkok this photo is very busy! And for that reason, I'm sure that many of you won't be taken much by this shot. It doesn't help either that the picture being displayed here is so small - the full resolution version looks far better.

I took this shot just outside Wat Phra Kaew which in turn is within the grounds of the Grand Palace. Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is Thailand's most important and sacred temple which is why I felt slightly hesistant about taking such personal photos. But hundreds of other people were so I thought I might as well join in!

Ah, you're back!

Nice toning on this one - I like the foreground, and like you say the background is a trifle busy, but the atmosphere conveyed is what I like about the shot. Do I detect a vignette added, or was that 'in-camera'?

Glad you like it Owen. The vignette was added in PP.

I feel the business is what the shot is all about, it'd be..well, empty without it. This is real life captured very well.
