A very magical shot, the silhouettes and the shapes of the ironwork above the door combined with that light and your framing make this an eye catching and intriguing capture.

I always fascinate about Asian architectures, including India. Your picture shows silhouettes of the beautiful door frame and people in dark. It's very nice.
Your note is very informative. Thanks!

a fabulous low key shot - i love - where the door is the only light source with lovely deep tones within the dim light, a challenging shot that you've balanced the lighting pretty well and good to see the brightest portion is not overblown. the delicate patterns - without which will look ordinary- on the entrance are wonderfully registered making this image extremely stands out and those figs are there timely shot to heighten and liven the shot. A very impressive shot my friend keep it up!!

a simple, elegant and evocative composition, a great idea. I like very much the narrow space in the vertical frame and the intriguing play of light and darkness that tells the story and creates intensity. The light helps draw the environment, the story and the textures in the middle of the frame. The three mysterious figures facing the viewer are really mesmerizing. The view outside looks deep and interesting but they're blocking the way and the mustery is captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
