This is the Harmandir Sahib ('Abode of God'), more commonly known as the Golden Temple, in Amritsar. The temple, built in the 16th century, is the most prominent of the Sikh Gurdwaras. More than 100 000 worshippers come here daily. I found it to be a welcoming and profoundly peaceful place.

hello Ryno, my today neighbour
A few minutes later than your previous post. the framing is gorgeous with the women in colored sarees at the foreground admiring this golden temple at the blue hour, but I would have cut the right part to remove the man in stripped Tshirt who is not in the mood of your picture.

une scène haute en couleurs, j'aime beaucoup la position des personnes vues de dos regardant le temple illuminé.

This is a beautiful scene, the tele by itself would be an excellent view, but these women sitting here taking in the peaceful surroundings and adding the human element with such color is a fantastic addition. It makes me want to sit here also and take in this wonderful decorative architectural scene. Thanks for sharing this wonderful shot

This is a spectacular composition with the women dressed in colorful garb in the foreground and the temple across the water. The light management and exposure complement the superb composition.

The six women look to the temple in their yellow clothing, with the nice reflection in the water.
Colours and sharpness are very nice to see
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,

Hi again Ryno
Amazing blue hour photo! The saturated contrasting colours work really well here. You depicted the tranquil mood of the place so well.

Beautiful shot! I love the colorful sarees against the blue hour sky and water. The temple is lovely reflecting in the water. Great shot, TFS

Hi Ryno. Serene mood. The colours could be seen as contradictory to the serenity but in fact they add to the splendour of the place and the devotion of the pilgrims. Accomplished result. Klaudio.

Very nice night shot, with vibrant colours. I think you have a tilt here though.
