An image with a view excel ° slowly. The situation of three young men is charming and very beautiful. Their faces an open book. A delight the third guy who looks younger in the fetal position and demanded protection that accompany the image. Grouser wonderful image! power they have in their movement ... the opportunity to withdraw through them. Congratulations Yiannis ... an image that is quite a story to imagine! A hug, Adela

I wonder what social conditions make them want to follow this lifestyle? Or why is this calling so popular?
It's a good warm shot just wish you had got the camera down to their level.

@Curly: All males must do service as a monk for a minimum of six weeks I believe. In any case it's a good way to ensure food, shelter and education in a poor country. Good point - I blame my knees :) although it's also nice to be looking in to the boy curled up asleep.
I'm interested in your reply to Curly. Whilst I've heard of compulsory "military service", I've never heard of "religious service" I gotta say that the government there really seem to understand how to get the best out of the people resource they have with education/work/religion etc process

@CElliottUK: This is for those of Buddhist faith and is a religious rather than government requirement I think it is true of Thailand and Laos also
That is new for me too..I had no idea of religious services existing..
They look happy and content here,beautiful captured!

@Craig: These are Cambodian, but the same applies. The Laotians are the happiest of all :)
A charming natural moment!

@MARIANA: Further to the grain problem, given all these pics were taken at around the same time, I now suspect I forgot to re-set the ISO after taking a low light shot and these were all taken at 1600. :0
What a different lifestyle that would be for these boys. Fine street shot.

A warm natural light portrait, and I like the angle of view for that curled up sleeping lad.

For those that choose a life as a Buddhist monk will not find it hard, but more a way of self discipline. To master this is their reward. An excellent shot.

Beautiful portrait and composition !!

Love their positioning, superb compo - may i ask why this noise damaging the pic quality ?

@k@: I suspect I forgot to re-set the ISO after taking a low light shot. As these pictures are all from the same time frame I think that is the culprit, although a software plug in I use for quick processing can create the same problem sometimes.
Excellent shot. I love this image.
