BLACK AND WHITE VERSION OF MY YESTERDAY'S COLOURED PHOTO. THINK IT SUITS THE ATMOSPHERE BETTER.
Near Azimganj is the
fascinating Baranagar temple
complex built by Rani Bhabani
(1714 – 1793),the Zamindar of
Natore. The brick-built temples
are considered to be amongst
the best examples of Bengal
The Baranagar Temple complex is
chiefly the creation of Rani
Bhabani of Natore. The
-Bangla and Rajrajeshwari are the
some information about this Char bangla temple :
In this frame you can see the famous Char-bangla temple (4 temples). These four temples enclosing a small courtyard, were built by Rani Bhavani of Natore. Each temple has a 3-arched openings and 3 shivalingas. Richly decorated faceds illustrated the best in the ornamental brickwork of Bengal. The eastern temple is ornamented with delicate plaster work. The decorative themes which vary, are drawn mainly from the Hindu epics and puranas.
I like this frame with the observer who is really feeling and enjoying the terracotta work. I also like the soft light of morning on this brick built temple. Now I am sharing it with you. Hope you'll like it.

I much prefer the black and white version to the coloured one. The man, although wearing a white shirt, blends into the scene much better and is not so obtrusive. The detail in the architecture is nicely defined.

Great black and white and many details in this image depicting a sacred building
The human figure allows us to appreciate the size.

Great architecture which is finely crafted. As mentioned i prefer this one that gives special atmosphere and mood. Detail sharpness and textures are excellent with great clarity and good contrast. Impressive pov, i like the slight curve on the fg and the man that adds life and scale to the image. Splendid image and useful infor my friend. TFS

Beautiful B&W presentation, interesting architecture, wonderful temple, excellent light management, the man with the white shirt gives a very nice contrast to the picture, very nice POV, I like better that version.
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.

If you ask me, I will go for the coloured version, simply because of the colour of terracotta. The work is amazing. The man definitely helps understanding the scale

Vrlo interesantan i dobar rad u crno beloj tehnici, lepa fotografija sa dobrim tonovima.
Detalji su lepi i u crno-beloj tehnici, isto kao u fotografiji u boji.
Svidja mi se vas rad.
Very interesting and good work in black and white, beautiful photos with good tones.
The details are beautiful in black and white, the same as in the photo in color.
I like your work.
All the best.

Good evening Subhendu
even if the fantastic color of the terracotta is not looked here, is this photo that I prefer. I believe for the armony of the tones, that obtain greater detail on the facade. so also the white shirt is an valued element. good composition, and fantastic the architecture of this sacred place.

splendid version in b&W of a very attractive image. I prefer this version to the color version because it gives more charme.
The quality and the contrasts are excellent too.

i dont know which one is better .. actually both of them have very individual personalities and moods. but if i have 2 choose one i wud go with the colour version since the burnt brick colour of the terracota is a joy to my eyes.
however this one also has a very special mood of its own

I agree with you in that the black and white does suit the scene a bit better.
and especially with the contrasting white t-shirt in the fg.
love the details that are expressed in the temple.
well seen and documented
