Hi Ryno. How can one ignore this combination of a lady in red and her golden temple?Lovely reflections help create a meditative mood. It wasn't that peaceful during Indira's time. Regards. Klaudio.

A very good POV with the seated lady in red saree helping us to discover the golden temple and its reflection.

This image is pure magic created by the golden light and it's reflection in water. The golden colour goes well with the lady in red. You created a timeless and atmopheric travel photograph.

A very lovely and atmospheric scene, a simple and effective layout in a vertical frame that enhances the depth and the interaction between the lady in red and the splendid temple. There are very fine details, textures and colours but your photo has feeling and mystery and is more than a description of the place. The golden reflections are fantastic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

There is a feeling of serenity in this well composed shot. A great moment; lovely combination of colours that sets it apart from the normal temple shot.

Your POV was well chosen here including the woman in red in the FG and the golden temple in the BG. The reflection leads the eye to the temple perfectly. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.

This image is gives us a choice between the last one I critiqued with four women, and frankly, it's very difficult to decide which one I like more. The shimmering lights in the water, the reflection of the temple across the way, makes an eye catching scene. The light management is first rate. did you use a fill flash to get the woman's sari so perfectly exposed?

Another good shot of this temple. I like it with the lights on, the golden reflection on the water and specially the woman sitting in foreground, in a moment of devotion. The red saree is wonderful. excelente combination of colours!
