Hi Farhat, well taken and clear picture of the work. (IMHO) could have cropped the right side of the stone a bit getting the subject more room, however nice shot.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage serré sur la statue et le mur de pierre qui tente de la cacher aux regards. Même si la lumière est difficile les détails ressortent parfaitement.

India has rich history. This temple was built 800 years ago. It kept well. Thanks for showing us.

Fine view of the ancient Sun-God in dark-grey tone, and contrast with the renewed pillar on side, probably a support on the restoration work on.
Good light upon, calrity is super.

The famous sun temple, maybe a unesco site Fabbs, very ancient monument (13th century), good close up on that statue, good colors and sharpness

I see that you are expanding our cultural awareness and I appreciate it. I like the color and light management in this photo. Sharpness is good, the viewer can see details in the intricate shapes.
I have comments/questions on the composition. I will address them by uploading an alternate cropping in the workshop.
TFS & Regards,

Another beautiful photo of the stone carving and sculpture. Excellent detials in the texture of the wall and statue. Nice warm earth tone.

a very interesting description of the art, colours and textures of the temple through a well chosen detail. I like the slight perspective and the way you solidified the composition using the wall. Although the light is mild, there's considerable lighting and chromatic contrast and you dealt with them effectively. The rendering of details and textures is excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,

The pillar is helping to frame the state. The point of view is showing the détails and colors of the statue of Sun God. The good lumiosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.

Time to time, Iran's 3am, I'm up for Ramadan Kareem, beautiful views, extensive notes, art, sculpture, unique in India

You're capturing well this stone statue of the Sun God by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see its look gentle and the surrounding scaulpture. It is interesting when that this is a temple which worships the sun when also considering the India religion which permits polytheism.

A superb composition with this beautiful close-up on the face and torso of the sculpture, a wonderful work of art, with a very detailed execution on all trims.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy a great weekend.

Namaste dear Farhat
Excellent close up. The tight framing brings out the best of the details, colours and textures. I particularly like the details of the God on the left and how the dark brown contrasts with the reddish stonework on the right.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day

Very instructive note to best appreciated the image of the idol and the material with witch it was done
maloutim (9623) 2013-08-28 15:39
There is a lovely contrast between the dark intricate artwork on the statue and around it, and the nice texture of the rosy sandstone on the right.
However, I agree with some other members, thinking that the rosy wall takes a little too much space.
I like Murat's WS.
However, all in all, it's a very pleasant shot.
