Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series lens @ 40mm. Exposure Details: 1/15 second @ f8 ISO 800.Here's a straightforward image of a Buddha statue in a lovely wat (temple) in Bangkok, Thailand.
Initially attracted by the golden color of the statue and background I then had to make sense of the range of intricate objects scattered through the foreground. Fortunately, the fact that they were silver provided a nice contrast with the richly color reds and golds behind.
Careful image processing in Adobe Lightoom 3 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 allowed me to add a lovely, soft glow to the image.
There are many styles of statues representing the Buddha throughout Asia. Of all the countries I've visited I've found the classical Thai style to be the most graceful.
