Greetings from the Critique Club

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' librodo you have again done a difficult and extraordinary image. And done it well. I'm really not sure how to 'critique' this image, so I'll just tell you it is exquisite and pretty much leave it at that.

The variations in color and patterns culminating with in starkness of the doorway make this a terrific image. Thanks for entering it.

great example of contre-jour.. love the silhouette while at the same time being able to see the statues.. nice complimentary colors make a beautiful exotic image.

Wonderful story being told here. I want to look at the side statues, but at the same time I keep coming back to the light and the person walking down the center. Great control of what could be some tricky exposure here. Nicely done! Good luck in the challenge.

you have made some great decisions here, we usally see images similar to this in b&w but your colours are wonderful and also waiting for him to step into the shodow so he becomes just a silhouette.
excellent photography 10

i like the silhouette effect on the man but i find the fact that you can see detail on the right hand side and not the left a bit distracting, it should be either one or the other IMHO.

The lighting has added depth to the photo, would like to have seen more in the foreground....5

Very cool. I love the contre jour. All of the continuity of the statues adds to the shape of the monk. The complementary green/red works well with the pop of gold. Nice light and shadow play too. Maybe clone out that "blob" in the lower left corner.
