Leh Palace overlooks the Ladakhi Himalayan town of Leh, modelled on the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. The palace was built by King Sengge Namgyal in the 17th century, but was later abandoned when Dogra forces took control of Ladakh in the mid-19th century.

Potala palace is a place that I would love to see more than many others in the world, and this is a wonderful tribute to it. So is this place still abandoned? The light falling on the far mountain looks great too, great timing.

Nicely managed light here Dwaipayan, the sun-kissed mountain contrasts both with the bright blue sky and the shady detail of the rocky peak and palace. The lines of flags add ambiance and detail. TFS and warm regards Rosemary

The top illuminated with the warm light is very attractive and eye chatching, excellent photo with good composition and management of light

While darkness is falling on the miniature Potala the sun still gives the second hill a fantastic golden glow. That contrast makes the composition very eye-catching. The inclusion of the lines of prayer flags is another fine detail.
One year after I visited the Leh palace I saw the real Potala. The difference between them is actually huge.

I keep a strong remembering of this place which was very interesting as photo subject at sunset.
Good light management with details kept both in lighted area and shadows.

A very pretty mountain scene in its simplicity, the neat composition, good perspective and depth with the warm catch light on the peak drawing the eye strongly. Good light management, nice subtle colors too. Well done, Congrats

Extraordinaire la construction du palace sur le haut du rocher, un éclat de lumière sur celui d'a coté, très belle présentation

The glow of gold on the peak behind is a stunner. Good exposure between light & shade...but why f/5 when you have shot with 1/250 s? You can narrow the aperture which would have given your sharper details! Nice picture!
