I found this statue of Goddess Kali (popularly known as "Kaali Ma" in India - for her dual nature of motherliness as well as wild fierceness against evil forces) atop a hillock known as "Pandava Tilla" (meaning Hillock of Pandavas) at Hastinapur - believed to be the capital of empire in epic "Mahabharata".
Although the garland around the face was looking a bit weird, bright colors of the statue against the green backdrop of surrounding trees and white enclosure around it prompted me to click this shot.

Could have used a closer POV or cropped the excess area on the left & Right to make this really look Imposing...

It looks like you took this photo in Noon.
there is too much of light which has ,a bit faded the colours of this photo.
You may be surprised to know that using Flash during Noon or mid day photos in the sun improoves the photo quality often.Try it!
