A fine close-up on this beautiful terracotta decoration. The composition is nicely angled and the detail is very well rendered with good sharpness. I like the contrast offered by the white painted arches.

A good framing with a closed angle on this architecture, in order to centre our attention on the delicate work of sculpture on terracotta at the facade of the temple.
The sharpness of the image allows us to enjoy the whole details of this artistic masterpiece.
Light and colors are perfectly managed.
It's a beautiful shot.

Una costruzione con decorazioni in terracotta .
Un'arte antica che affascina i turisti .
Un piccolo villaggio con un tempio raccolto e significativo .
Un Bengala noto per le sue tradizioni militari e portamento elegante .
