I was attracted by the contrast between the green slopes and the bright red temple and those huge fluttering red flags. The waterfall in the background was an added attraction.
Shot taken at the Hindu pilgrimage town of Badrinath in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The temple is located on a steep hilly slope opposite to the pilgrimage town without any motorable road. That will be one hell of a climb for the holy priests looking after the temple.
Thanks for having a look.

A well composed shot showing this colourful temple in its verdant surroundings. As you say, the impressive waterfall is a bonus; I also like the the diagonal line formed by the nearside rim of the canyon. The image is agreeably and has pleasant natural tones and very good sharpness.

You already said yourself what makes this photo so fascinating :-). Apart from the colourful buildings and the pretty waterfall, the dark diagonal created by the canyon gives a dynamic rhythm to the composition.

The light is excellent otherwise most of the days are having mist in hilly areas. I have been to Shri Badrinathji in 2005. What a trip!!! Full of adventures. I can't forget this trip throughout my entire life.
Thanks for sharing and re-call my memory of the great pilgrimage temple.

You play wonderful with light and shadows in the valley beside the waterfall.
Also the village attracts attention with the houses and the flags.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Also these picture is nice, you choose a very well angle, this gives perspective and depth.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too..

Superb composition of great beauty in this spectacular location, amazing color for the temple, which is undoubtedly the focus of attraction in the green hillside, a great complement cascade falling, in what looks like a large cut in the mountains, I like the diagonal marking the hillside in the composition.
Very pretty color, which gives a lot of life to the image.
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness also
is perfect for enjoying the details.
Very well seen and well taken.

I can surely see why this scene attracted you, how often do we get to see these elements together! You composed the beautiful vibrant red temple perfectly on thirds, and this allows a nice open space into which we can see the expansive landscape beyond. Like you say, the waterfall is such a nice added bonus!
Thanks as always

Quite a scenery here! The waterfall does add another dimension to the picture...the red temple - should be Hanuman ji's. Another interesting aspect is the diagonal across the frame...Nice!
mirosu (12558) 2014-03-20 23:58
The red temple is in excellent contrast with green slopes around. The white waterfall is very good placed on dark background. Excellent light and shadow play.
Very well done.

The temple, the waterfall and the dark deep canon in diagonal , all helps to create a good composition about an so isolated place
Well done, regards
