Brilliant picture there Goutham, Perhaps you might want to correct the spelling for Vidhana Sabha.

Very well managed picture from a simetry and light point of view. The building is really majestic as so many things in India! Thanks for sharing.

A very well exposed night image, the building is well lit by the authorities and you used this to your advantage.
Have a nice day JY

it is always a good idea to wait for the dark if you want to show a building, especially if it is illuminated - the surrounding darkness takes away possible distractions and focuses attention on the details of the architecture. I quite like the symmetry here, I find it conveys a sense of stability. I'd crop a little from the bottom to take away that streak of light on the right, and I wouldn't put anything gray in frames, I find it dulls the whole photo.

Interesting night capture, with a good result in the luminosity and in the hues of the lighting on this beautiful building, which they create a strong contrast with the absolute darkness of the environment.
