This is yet another door at the City Palace Jaipur with its amazing decorations.
In India, the Green color is associated with growth,auspiciousness and prosperity. The green and the tones of green you see here are all natural colors made from vegetable dyes. Its really amazing to know the fact that the colors have not faded nor they were retouched since the 17th century.The brass doors and frames make this more ornamental.
I wanted to show the artistry involved in these arches and chose this POV. I also added three frames with colors chosen from the arches and the walls.
Thanks for visiting.

I LOVE THIS PHOTO! I definitly see the growth this beautiful building is trying to represent. The walls seem to be bursting with life and singing about spring. Well Done

Very nice composition and colours. You could have shown a bit more of the door, which look very beautiful. To be honest, I do not like the frame. It looks like a continuation of the walls.

Nice post from Jaipur, the colourful city in our country.
Just a comment, you could use a simple frame, not the trio-coloured one.

Superb shot of this decorative door. Very nicely captured. Sharp, clear, and nice details.

Un étonnant jeu de lignes et de couleurs.Une image assez fascinante!
Tu aurais peut être dû redressser un peu la partie gauche de la photo avec PS?

I like this fine light dominating colotone setting a lit here with a perfect matching border, all well exposed and very detailled. A marvellous photo of this entrance.

Excellent composition. The colours are so soothing to the eyes. Excellent patterns. I am not a big fan of multi-coloured frames but this one goes perfectly with the image.
With Greetings from India

This is fantastic...what beautiful colours, the green is soothing to the eye & the artwork absolutely great. You've done very well with the POV here showing us the gateway in excellent light. Well done indeed
hello_ishan (1571) 2006-08-08 6:13
Fantastic shot; you have captured the artwork very nicely. The colors are beautiful, I think nobody can imagine such a wonderful artwork is belongs to 17th century because the color & art looks very new even if it's more then 250-300 years old. Well done & thanks for sharing.

The contrasting colours are mindblowing.
I can feel the texture of the wll from your composition.It also remembers the microscopic view of a leaf. Great work. TFS

First of all-Happy Raksha Bandhan.
A perfectly managed shot with control over light and shades. I tried a few such shots at Bikaner, but of no use.
A single shot of you has aroused in me a big desie to visit Jaipur, from where Vivek(ID DragonHeart) has brought some oustanding beauties.
The colours attract at the very first instance. No doubt its your POV, which has resulted in great effects.
I can count
lemon green and a lot more.
credit goes to the artists of the 17th century and to you too Vikram.
Keep posting such great shots.
They mean a lot.

thumbnail of this photo does not do justice here. great color, like teh way you give us a peek of the brass door. good contrast and detail.
papagolf21 (102460) 2006-08-12 4:05
Superbe photo de détails architecturaux. J'aime la façon dont vous avez su mettre en valeur toutes les subtilités des couleurs et de nous avoir expliqué les relations des couleurs avec les coutumes en Inde.
cbrman (21675) 2006-08-12 6:55
Quelles couleurs !!!
Une superbe image pleine de rythme. Ton cadre col parfaitement.

What strikes me here is the dominant of this rare color, I do not see places with this color everyday, the close framing works well to concentrate on these nice shapes, normally I would not like such a frame but here it does not work that bad I must tell, nice photo.
Have a nice day,

Amazing natural colours of green - I like the patterns as well - surely a great way to present ones home.
cunejo200 (7281) 2006-08-16 22:56
What an explosion of colors. A very pleasing composition with rich details and texture. Best wishes.
cherryripe (21033) 2006-08-17 12:25
I like this type of green very much which is why I'm attracted to this photo. The façade is beautifully decorated and the touch of gold a bonus. I would have preferred a more contrasting frame.

Hi, Vikram! I hope someday I can visit Jaipur! Your pics show how beautiful is this city! This door looks great in yellow and green (Brazilian national colours!)! Nicely composed work, rich in details! TFS! Greetings from Rio! Miguel.
timleahy (2195) 2006-09-12 19:59
I like this shot, for the way the door is partly concealed, and the subtle shades of green. Good note also.
Graal (102928) 2006-09-16 2:36
interesting elements of architecture, pleasant green dominante. I like it.
ksvijayb (385) 2006-09-18 5:24
Wonderful capture of the dominant color and a perfectly thoughtful frames.
vincz (19113) 2006-09-19 3:51
Very beautiful picture with uncommon colours. very sharp as well. Congratulations!
sakthi (127) 2006-09-28 6:12
this is one beautiful informative picture with an equally informative not. the pov is excellent why because most parts of the architectural elements and expressions are made visible by choosing this view point. the depth of field was also set nicely that the the near and the farther elements are more or less clear to the same extent...good job...
marietom (34609) 2006-10-11 16:01
superbes couleurs, pour cette belle composition.
sebinho342 (19317) 2006-10-17 12:34
Hi Vikram, a long since i went last on your gallery,n a pleasure to be back, i pick this one which is really good, perhaps a big dark frame would have been better but the inside, the picture itself is excellent, very eyes catching, love those kind of repetition of motifs, you did it well there (i would have applyed a little bit more contrasts perhaps)
dcawker (5717) 2006-10-20 10:10
Wow, amazing colors and excellent POV as well! Nice frame too!!! Regards, Doug
rafid76 (0) 2006-12-25 18:36
although im not crazy about the framing but its reall really fitting here! its just amazing to me that all images from india are works of art, hopefully very soon a=i will be there. the shades of green leading to the door is wounderfull, GREAT JOB
guillaumejm (0) 2007-01-13 3:41
It's quite an unusual pov you've choosen. And in this case it's a good thing to read well tyhe note. I really like these tones. It's interresting to see how you've set focus on arches and not the golden door.
Benedict (7076) 2007-02-07 0:04
i like the colors...yellow and green!
i would have included a larger image of the golden door. the frame is a redundance of the colors...should have chosen black and white instead... nevertheless, this is an appealing upload!
alzaphod (44) 2007-07-23 15:12
beautiful photo and composition. Real atmosphere in the shot.

Great green photo... a very smart composition in an almost monochromic style.
