Bonjour, cher Lakshmi,
Mon étonnement est toujours identique quand je vois ce genre d'édifice.
La beauté générale est stupéfiante. De plus, les couleurs donnent à l'ensemble un aspect très particulier.

This is a great shot of a splendid temple. I like the framing with the trees abd the deepness causes by the passge under the temple. The strong light has been well controlled giving good colors and sharpness.
Have a great day

This is a great shot of a splendid temple. I like the beautiful old historic church is caught in brilliant light that brings out ture color, fantastic details and shadows. The color and green make a lovely contrast and the cloudless blue sky the perfect background.

La fotografia ritrae tutta le bellezza "cromatica" ed architettonica del tempio.
Inserito in un ambiente urbanizzato svetta maestoso.

ikeharel (60317) 2012-03-18 1:36
A fantastic and full view of the beautiful temple, colorful and with many art-work details, from street level to it's top.
Good light managed, and yet the photo can be divided into 2 main subjects: temple and street activity.
Lovely taken and presented picture.

A great Hindu temple shown in the dry hot day. Architecture of the building and its color is incredible. The size of the building reflects the trees and the people at the temple. Cool the rickshaws in the foreground. Excellent image quality.

Great POV that included daily life round it
Greetings and TFS

Indeed, I was impressed by the gopurams of Indian temples ! I was wondering : Can one climb up to the different storeys ?
This is a nice POV, with the very ornate, colourful tower watching over the bazaar and its daily life scene at its foot.
The foliage of the trees make a good contrast with tower and the street scene.
