The perspective and depth is so good that one feels to be in the picture!

Colour blind from Tokyo, Japan

Geez...go the DOF this is fantastic. Just a suggestion, if you waited a little longer for them to be a little lower I think it would have added more to the effect of 3 dimensions. But that's just my thoughts. The colours are fantastic btw!!

i love that this is off-center.the lighting, the colors, the composition, all of it together makes this really an impressive photograph.

Chris Sullivan from Melbourne, Australia

Nice one Stu, although I think it might have worked better if there were people walking towards the camera; but then you'd have to call is 'ascending'. Still, love the off-centre compostion and the contrasts of the orange beams against the characters and coats on the people

Michael from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Great colour and the lead in through the frame is superb. I do like that the figures are off-centre, but might have like it even more it with them walking up. Great shot all the same.

Alfredo J. Martiz J. from Tokyo, Japan

Wonderful perspective, everything works perfectly, the location of the persons, and how you are driven to the temple at the end, nice one!

Bronnie from Christchurch, New Zealand

I keep coming back to this one, I love that it is people descending, coming up would put the focus on the people rather than the whole setting.The line right down the steps to the bottom is great, which is why I like the off-centre composition.

@Bronnie: Thanks for both your comments on this one Bronnie! Glad you like it.

It was definitely a long walk if you wanted to really walk the full pathway.
