I spotted this couple, conveniently dressed in red, at the top of the stairs of the Nyatapola Temple.

Wishing all my TE friends Happy Valentine's Day.

In WS more photos of people taken by this temple.

Hello Kasia,
A very suitable photo for today. You spotted the young couple well through the gap between the typical Nepalese temple figures. They are well placed just by one of the beautifully ornate pillars. It's a kind of "Peeping Tom" photo, but that's all right with me. ;-)
I really like the little person struggling up the steep steps too. Maybe there will be a second WS too..
Best wishes,

Hi dear Kasia

Very timely posting for A saint Valentain day. Great idea to peep honney moon couple through the statues. Sharp and blurred contrast is so touchy via your keen sense and inspiartion.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hi Kasia
You have great subject of interest; I like the compo off centre where all focus the attention on the lovers and their self-absorption. The splash of colours and light have worked really within the setting making this extremely standout. A realistic shot and eye candy seen from an impressive view point, Congrats
Best wishes

Hi Kasia,
Well seen and taken this interesting composition with the couple, perfect management for the sharpness, nice architecture and sculpture too, tfs.

Witaj Kasiu,. Śliczne trzy zdjęcia z tej świątyni, trudno wybrać, które podoba mi się najbardziej. Ta para w czerwonym siedząca kolo jakiegoś mitycznego ptaka świetnie pasuje na walentynki. Fajny widok grupy hinduskich turystów pozujących do zdjęcia, uroczy widok małej dziewczynki wspinającej się po schodach. Zawsze mnie zastanawia, ze widzimy mnóstwo grup turystów chińskich lub japońskich, a prawie wcale hinduskich. Czy nie lubia podróży?

Pozdrawiam serdecznie

A lovely slightly sneaky shot, Kasia.
A good dof to focus on the loving couple.

The wood carving combined with the giant stone statues make a great environment for a Valentine shot with a difference.


Bonjour Kasia,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition prise sur le vif, juste au bon moment et qui parle d'amour en cette fête de la Saint Valentin. J'aime beaucoup la netteté sur le couple en rouge.

Hi Kasia,the most original pic to celebrate the love day,the scenery of location and the couple position are a wnner. Perfect DOF on the couple for the correct details in the right place. And the WS are lovely too,especially the funny and colorful group of tourists. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Czesc kasiu
Ladne walentynkowe zdjecie, swietny podwojny portet w otoczeniu starej architektury. Ciekawe zdjecia w warsztacie - swietna prezentacja jak zawsze

Hi Kasia
yes, the perfect subject content for the day.
and even better, the fact they're wearing red.
as Gert mentioned its a peeping tom kinda shot - but thats ok, as sure as photographers we have all done this haha

the WS photo of the child going up the stairs is a beauty, love that one - how could it NOT put a smile on your face.
see you around :)

Hello Kasia,
Why not ? Love is in the air, everywhere in the world. I wished me a world without hate and wars but only love and love.
Another perfect entry in your gallery. Both with its photographic qualifications and the text.
TFS and have a nice weekend,

Oi Kasia,

Linda foto realçando o belo casal romantico em meio às enormes esculturas. Bela homenagem ao Valentine`s Day.



Hi Kasia,
beautiful capture here, of red couple and temple details. The DOF are perfect too, and also I like for the WS, principally the no. 2. Great job, my friend.


Nice spot. :)

Hello Kasia,

A nice upload for Valentine's Day. Clever use of a shallow dof to shift focus towards the sharply defined couple. The patch of blue sky is a bonus that adds color contrasts. Tfs!
