Photographer's Note

This is the main prayer at the Cao Dai Great Temple in Tay Ninh.
I remember one of Luko's picture, Baroque faith, it was taken at this temple... I didn't know what to think about this picture, it was so strange, so different... now I think I understand this picture more...
anyway, we were late with our group, we arrived there just few minutes before the noon and the main ceremony starts at the noon... The guide said we are leaving the temple at 12:30, so I didn't have much time... I think these 30 minutes there were one of the most busy photographic 30 minutes I have ever exprerienced, there is some many interesting things to photograph... Absolutely incredible place, so colorful and somehow mystical...
and Caodaism is a special Vietnamese religion, it is a mix of Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism... and Cao Dai means high tower... maybe i'll post something from this special, colorful place some other time... The picture was taken from a special balcony for visitors.
oh, and I was the last from my group who left the temple, I just couldn't stop taking pictures, the whole group was already in the bus, it was nice of them that they waited for me...

The original picture was tilted a bit, so... PS: rotation 0.3 degree CW, auto levels, sharpness, saturation a bit.
