Nice composition. Lots of very nice elements from the church to the school group and the tractor.
A little too saturated maybe and the grain in the sky could benefit from a little Neat Image.

great POV,colors and details in this photo.
i like the way you caught all those schoolchildren,it`s as though everyone`d be attracted to the church.

Nice shot. A little too much PS perhaps. Sky looks grainy. Can't see the school children's faces.

A stunning architectural shot, Anand.
The clarity, colours and lighting are all excellent in this shot.
Very well framed.

good photo of this monumental & nice church !
nice colors and light, good PP, but the sky suffers of your changes... and maybe too much contrast added, faces of people is realy too dark...
