This sculpture adorns the entrance of Kolaramma temple at Kolar, Karnataka. This temple is around thousand years old and is constructed by Cholas. This photo was shot at the time of sunset where the rays which were almost horizontal beautifully illuminated the statue.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na skulpturu ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazana skulptura i trenutak sa svetlom koje je istaklo lepotu detalja.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Nice view of the sculpture ...
Good work, beautiful sculptures shown, and the moment with the light pointed out the beauty of the details.
Nice afternoon and all the best.

in questo tipo di ripresa sei molto bravo e sai valorizzare al massimo quiesti soggetti che fanno parte della tua cultura.
Mi piace in particolare modo la perfetta gestione delle luci che permette di mettere in particolare risalto il soggetto conferendogli una particolare suggestione.
Anche la stessa colorazione del soggette che aiuta a creare una fotografia monocromatica contribuisce a questo con un risultato che trovo assai efficace e suggestivo.
Ciao e buona giornata

Excellent work with the light and shadows. Darkness on the left and bright light on the right. Interesting subject and work of art. Very sharp photo. Well done!

Formerly there were good artists, almost thousand year and in very good conditions.
Colours and sharpness make these picture attractive.
Excellent composition, splendid captured.
Very well done, TFS.

Great POV with a shadow play going on on the left. It makes her look so coy. The light falling from the right hand side accentuates the details of the sculpture around her face and waist.

Hola , namaste Sailesh
I am an admirer of very old stone sculptures, is this an Apsara?
Great way to add contrast with the light from the right
Well done, congrats
Thanks for your advise at my monk's photo

a great mysterious atmosphere. You've captured the age of this temple in your picture. Images like this require a photographer who has very great sensitivity for special places with special vibrations. You own this.
Very well done!
Have a nice evening
