I like the strong contrast and light, I think this could look good in B&W too..good shot, but the name/watermark at the bottom of the image detracts form the quality somewhat.

Nice Picture - the play of light & shade over the Goddess - the light on the arms & the glitter of the ornaments.
But - please do check on the Notes. In India - other than in Bengal & Eastern India, people celebrate Dusshera on the Dashami Day of the Puja.
