You have presented a picture not normally seen. Cossimbazar Rajbari is a famous puja. Like the arches leading to the Durgamandir. Good light and clarity. Well seen POV.

What a spectacular shot of the Goddess Durga glowing and colorful. The green and red work very well here. Nice inclusion of the pujari and the devotee. Well presented with sharpness.

Namaskar dear Nilotpal
What I always admire about the religions of your country is that the Gods and Godesses are so much more beautiful and decorated than those of the Western religions. Here you have managed the different light strengths superbly. I love the colour and this very natural scene of daily life in your colourful, exotic country.
Have a beautiful day and thanks for sharing
