The six smiling young ladies make a charming focal point and also give us a sense of scale for this immense. Good management of the light and shadow contrasts, which contribute much to the pleasant atmosphere. Excellent technical realisation.
I bet the note you spent some time to write disappeared as soon as you clicked the upload button. It happens to me too and I find it very frustrating.
In this case I'll try to imagine how you took this photo. Did you find these six ladies sheltering from the blazing sun in this shady corner and convinced them to pose for you?
Lovely colours enhanced by the play of light and shadow.
Have a nice Sunday

What has you promised the six girls, to pose for your camera, as sister beside each other.
Also the temple is very well and pleasant to look at.
Pleasant panorama picture too.
Lovely colours and sharpness, excellent composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
This photo can be perfectly enjoyed without a note, but if you make another attempt to add an explanation we will know if you charmed these girls into posing for you, or if you "stole" them from another photographer. No matter what, this is a beautiful photo, immaculately composed, with a nice foreground and an interesting background. After two visits to Hué I have the impression that a bright and sunny day like this doesn't come very often.
I imagine your notes have gone astray by the gremlins in this site!
I always copy mine before I upload! Such a problem!
This is an excellent photograph of the building, probably a temple and enhanced so cleverly by the six young ladies in purple uniform. Despite the conformity in their dress, they are all wearing modern individual shoes!
It was probably so much cooler under the tree than in the strong sunshine.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Very impressive place and this line of rather happy looking young girls does add a nice extra something to the scene as well. Their smiles ate almost contagious.

Tu as été très chanceux de trouver d'aussi beaux modèles pour ta composition. Elles présentent bien devant ce temple des plus impressionnant. J'aime beaucoup la légère saturation des couleurs et le contrôle des ombres.

You have given us a most interesting and comprehensive note and a delightful photograph o accompany it!
I very much like the diagonal composition and how the bright sunlight shows off the colourful roofs of the main building while the six pretty girls smiling at you are bathed in softer dappled light. Nice framing from the overhanging foliage, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

This time the writing of note took more time than the PP of the image, I guess. :) I liked it, however!

An interesting scene with these sic purple girls posing for your camera. The purple colour is a beautiful contrast with the other colours of the composition.
I also like the contrast of the human presence and the old buildings behind.

The architecture is wonderful and it was captured with excellent light and colors! The typical clothes are also a very interesting detail in this scene! Beautiful composition! Excellent job!

Great picture sneaking in on the posing girls, and probably better than the picture they were actually posing for. A good thing for you that the girl in the middle decided to look in your direction.
The gate in the background is imposing, the sky above perfect. It's high time we go back to Vietnam, I spent a couple of years teaching there, looking at this picture makes me realize (again) (again) (again) it's been too long since we've gone back.

wonderful photo, i like it for many reasons, but i really enjoy how its partly in shade and mostly in bright light.
The girls are posing and you got yourself a fun shot even though they're not posing for you.
amazing history I would imagine here, love the stone and the smaller more intricate details like the orange colored ornaments used in the short wall behind the girls legs.
As for notes, not sure if i mentioned it to you before or not...but the best way now to upload your note is to just type it in after. When your photo is posted on the new gallery page, click on your photo...then directly under it click on 'EDIT'.
Then you can type in your note in full, and it uploads each and every time.

This is really a place I'd like to visit once again. It was raining so much when I was there. Hue is a fantastic place and you got a very nice shot with these local girls wearing the traditional dresses.
