This is the pillar hall in Sri Ranganatha Temple in Sri Rangam. Carved into the base of each pillar are gods and figures from holy stories. This is much before we enter the inner Sanctum that houses Lord Sri Ranganatha. This hall has some shops that sells many items from inexpensive jewelry and other wood and plastic items. Here , people sleep, eat and relax. Mainly, poor people use this hall extensively for various purposes. Only Hindus are allowed beyond this point.

La position de l'homme pour dormir ne semble pas très confortable, mais le sommeil est assez lourd pour permettre aux gens de tourner autour sans problème.La lumière difficile est très bien gérée.

Good framing for a daily life scene in the context of the temple, with the people each having actind a different way. Good management of light giving good sharpness.

The decorated pillars make an attractive frame for this interesting slice of daily life. The image is well exposed and there is much to maintain the interest. Good light, colours and sharpness.

an image well illuminated inside the temple, which shows us a vital and spontaneous scene, and at the same time, offers us a feeling of sadness for the poverty of these people who shelters in this place.
The technical execution of the photo is very good, I love the reached result.

Questa è una foto di peso .
L'uomo che dorme è il più significativo.
Per il resto Le colonne hanno il taglio "classico" che poi si trova anche nei portali in pregiato legno.
Un piccolo particolare sulla vendita di gioielli o ..
Ma meriterebbe tempo .
La foto che incuriosisce ha doppio valore .

Interesantno mesto u hramu, sala sa prodasvnicima i ljudima koji su nasli skloniste, lepa fotografija.
Dobar trenutak, ostrina snimka i kontrast kojim ste istakli detalje, lepe boje.
Imajte lep dan za odmor.

A nice taken photo inside the shrine, well managed the low light cond., and showing the men and kids there.
Each one doe's something else, but the indifference of the kid passes by the sleeping man, had caught the first sight.
A fine shot,

This is a very interesting picture and note. You have managed the exposure very well in the low light. The colours of the shops contrast well with the brown tones of the pillar hall. Very good work.
