I am such a fan of the vanishing-point perspective, Ray, AND of watercolors, so this is a treat for me today...my first blog to visit since coming back to The Netherlands. As a matter of fact, this is a Likey for me. It's one to stare at!
Ray: It was very pleasant to realise this would give a vanishing-point effect, Ginnie...then Nigel was a bonus.

Ans it's turned into a rather pleasing watercolour too!
Ray: Idle fingers...big buttons...I couldn't help myself, Chris.

Great depth perception Ray and what a contrast from the old temples to the skyscraper....petersmile
Ray: I would have been happy without those apartment building in the back, Peter, but they are not too objectionable.
Now you have stunned me all over again, just as I'm getting used to the inside, you show me the outside. I hope there are more to come - or is there a whole album of this temple on your website. I'll go and see.
Ray: Thanks for your very kind comments, Sheila.
In fact I have a couple of galleries of shots from this temple, if you are interested to see more:

This is a bit of a departure for you, Ray, and a very successful one! Love the effect. Love the composition, too - that vanishing point is wonderful. I like the fact that the fact that the traveller with his case and the highrise in the background look equally out of place. (:o)
Ray: It isn't my normal fare, Rosalyn, but this Nigel fellow kept jumping in front of my camera, so what was I to do!

[grin]
You have done a twiddle. I think it is a good twiddle
Ray: Coming from you, Maestro, I regard your comment as a major compliment.
Ray this is an excellent shot. There's alot to like; the effect, the perspective, the contrast of old and new, and I quite like the pot bellied baldy carrying half a ton of camera gear with him!
Likey!
Ray: Yeah...that Nigel bloke drags a bit more camera kit about than do I.

Hmmmm you have joined twiddle town, it's a great job too.smile
Have a great weekend
Ray: I won't make a habit of it...I promise, Racy Tracy.
You certainly have given this THE TREATMENT Ray.
Ray: I am a dangerous operator when I locate the "twiddle" button, Chad.
What a difference between the old temple and the high rise blocks in the background.
Ray: And the temple is not so old, Brian...about 50 years...but it is built in old styles.
This is a really good effect, love the vanishing point smile
Ray: It is a pleasing affect, Linda.
Can't any lodgings for the night be found ...
Ray: Poor Nigel...lost in a strange land, with only a bag of camera gear for company...
Lovely contrast with the high rise buildings.
Ray: These high-rise towers are not as objectionable as some, Tom.
A wonderful perspective.
Great PP. I really like the watercolour effect!
Ray: I had a little bit of fun, Richard.
