The following works of art ...are among the most remarkable contributions of the Tamil creative genius to the world's cultural treasure and should be familiar to the whole world and admired and beloved by all in the same way as ... the cathedrals of France and the sculptures of Greece ...... Dravidian temple architecture, of which the chief representatives are perhaps the temples of Tanjore, Chidambaram ,Rameswaram and Madurai....."

Awesome POV and perspective. The soft lighting and clear, sharp detail give a dreamy effect to the temples. It serves these beautiful structures justice. Nice layering of composition. And thankyou for the background information. -Lara

Very nice compositon you got here. The temple in the background with reflection in the water other elements with soft colors in the foreground, very good job. This picture however would benefit from increases sharpness (see workshop). Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.

Nice idea and the photograph has good depth giving a 3D effect. I did a workshop on your photograph where I cropped mostly the left part and increased sharpness.
Hope you like it, Balamurugan.

I think that the lighting of your photo is very good. I love the way the colors interact with each other in it (especially the refelction of the Temple in the water).
