Buddha Statue_Bagan_Myanmar

Buddha Statue_Bagan_Myanmar Leica M6 camera and Leica 35mm f2 Summicron-M series Aspherical lens with Kodak Ektachrome Elite 100 Extra Color film

Myanmar (Burma) was a revelation for me. I loved it and can’t wait until I can re-visit this spectacular country.

I discovered the above scene while wandering around the ancient capital of Bagan. The strong side light emphasized the shape, texture and tonality of the Buddha statue and the brick platform on which it is situated. As you can see I made use of the architecture and used the doorway to an adjoining room to frame the statue.

The original color transparency was scanned prior to processing in Adobe Camera RAW. Subtle color tones were applied throughout the image (shadows, mid tones and highlights) in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
