"I built my deity
in my memory...
Where, oh my
A temple can be many things. A place of social gathering, A place of art appreciataion, a place of spirituality...
But for me, like many other common folks, it is a place to think back & weigh the events...

Nice shot. Good manangement of the light. Good colours and contrast.
Why no note? Your notes are so good.

Everything came out very well on contrast level, not that evident with all the light from outside reflecting on the wall right. Her orange dress is the eyepuller sittingnext to these immens high coloms.
I see you're rather busy ... caught by your boss in the middle of TE ?

First of all do the spelling correction of the title..
Now the pic is an example of heritage property with the carvings on the wall..the subjects are caught impromtu...good depth of this photograph..only thing i was inquisitive about is how would this pic look if thw walls are straightened along with the frame...

The lady's face seems to beleong to the pillar sculptures.
There must be three people, since a man is hidden.
Most of all I like your note, that let us understand better what you mean. A temple or c hcurch is a place where take some time to think...

Premananad: fine vertical frame. I think you did right in emphasizing the horizontal of the temple here. Missed this place. regards, c

The vertical cropping is beautifull and it's well composed with the people on the floor in front of this monument.

You have managed a fine combination of daily life and superb temple architecture. The persons talking provide a good foreground and colours that brighten the relative darkness of the temple. The not so bright light is very well handled.
