Near Ajimganj in West Bengal, you can find the famous Charbangla temple, which was built by Rani Bhabani of Natore within 1714 to 1793. There are so many famous temples with great terracotta art in the walls of them. You can see ONE OF THOSE MAIN TEMPLES IN MY GALLERY, BY CLICKING HERE. Today I am not presenting the photo of those comparatively better buildings. I choose this photo with the ruined temples for my today's post. I like this frame with the soft light of morning on the ruined temple and the vegetation into it. Especially I like the lady with red shari at foreground. Hope you'll also like it.

They look rather sad and forlorn these temple ruins, overgrown and surrounded by the trappings of daily life. It was a good idea to include the lady in the shot; she injects a sense of vitality and some bright tones. Very good sharpness.

The off-setting of the main structure of the left is nicely balanced by the receding smaller on of the right. Good clear crispy tones, and lines with interesting green foregrounds, and the woman in stunning colors provides a very effective lead.
Altogether a great composition and good depth, focal of interests complement each other very well with excellent contrast. Nice shot my friend, Congrats

Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures from our state, which unfortunately I have not been able to visit. These provide an insight about our fine cultural & distinct past, evidenced in the distinct architectural style. Good shot here...I might have wished a bit more space in the FG & less of the sky...Bhalo chhobi!

testimonianze del passato circondate e in certi casi avvolte dal verde in questo angolo.
Mi piace la composizione per la bella tonalità e per l'inquadratura che include la donna dalle vesti colorate,

What beautiful ruins and you did a wonderful job of presenting them. The richly saturated colors, crisp clean details, and the balance of the composition are very pleasing. The inclusion of the woman was a good choice adding interest to the picture.

It is a very effective composition, with the temple walls and roof invaded by shrubbery and the woman wearing an outfit complementing the colors of the entire frame.

In addition to all the things you mention in your note (which I like) .. I also like the how the old temples are superimposed with bright fresh greens (full of life) ... and how the old temples are superimposed with the more modern power and phone lines ... both those thoughts are evocative to me. very nice.
