Monks collecting alms on a humid morning somewhere in downtown Phnom Penh, an irresistible situation and so very Cambodian in my eyes. My camera was still primed on manual mode and this was the result from a quick burst of closed-in shots at 200 mm, set to full aperture.
Merely a spectacle of monk's ordinary life and routine on the street, a similar scene is probably repeated daily at roughly the same time..
Setting: 200 mm, 1/800 sec, F2.8, ISO Raw 200, 0843 hrs

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH
Great cropping makes so ideal and poetic image as such.
Simple but that is why so appealing and impressive one. Reflecting with your high sense and inspiaration as usual.
All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Abmdsudi ,
The thumbnail was quite intriguing : it could have been red pants and white shirts ... but opening it , we understand
Excellently seen and captured with a clever framing .

Interesantan pogled, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

It takes a good 'eye' to see the possibilities, here! But what a good photograph it has made!
There is just enough suggestion of conditions, along with these wonderful colours and shapes, for us to fill in the details of the scenario.
I love it!
Have a good day,

This is an original composition. The shapes and colours are quite interesting. You had a smart idea for this.

It's a little difficult to see the reality
I like your simple composition and the sharp presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Il ne doit pas y avoir beaucoup d'espace autour pour qu'ils soient aussi près les uns des autres. Mais tu as réussi quelque chose de très beau et de très intime sous les parapluies.

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Je l'aime beaucoup cette composition prise à la volée.
Le résultat est brillant et réussi.

This is a photo to exercise our imagination, two dominant colors and intersting shapes as result, a little abstract
GyurMaster (7611) 2017-03-20 11:40
Even if it is not perfect technically, you created a spectacular abstract.
mcmtanyel (29668) 2017-03-20 21:27
I love the colors and shapes in this almost-abstract photo, well done!
PS. I uploaded a color-corrected version of "Cascade Park" to its workshop, thanks for the critique.

Bon cadrage serré , le rendu et contraste des couleurs, belle réalisation
adramad (49962) 2017-03-22 12:20
A very original image, in this foreground that give us good textures of the fabrics, as well as a nice chromatic with the reds of the tunics and the cream of the umbrellas.
A nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both the sharpness and the lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a good day.
Very best regards.
PaulVDV (32695) 2017-03-23 13:03
A simple but very attractive composition.
Very fine atmosphere image whereby both monks do not only wear the same colour of robe but also shelter under an umbrella of the same colour.
Best regards, Paul

when I see photos like this, it makes me think to myself...I need to be more creative just like this :)
this type of shot you took inspires me to change my own behaviour - what better compliment can I give than that!
the overall look is so effective with just 2 colours and 2 subjects, wonderful
kasianowak (10591) 2017-03-24 13:07
A photo with recognisable shapes and obvious human presence and yet almost abstract with large areas filled with two different coulours. Well spotted slice of daily life shot in an original way.
Have a nice weekend
npecanhuk (78913) 2017-03-25 5:37
Very interesting and attractive picture!
Special regards to the exposure, colors and, of course, excellent original composition!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy the week-end,

Ciao dear Abmdsudi
Even though we can't see their faces, by the colours, it's obvious that these people were monks. Stunning colours, play of light and shade and superb definition. I love the tight framing and the beautiful geometries you have captured. An artistic and enthralling photo.
