Namaste Shailesh.It is a great pity that so much of what was beautiful and unique has been and still is being destroyed by religious fanatics. All monotheistic religious are equally responsible for such losses of human artistic endeavours. Great use of light and lovely details. Regards. Klaudio.

comlimenti per questo bel particolare architettonico, ripreso con una luce eccellente ed isolato magnificamente dal suo contesto per farne oggetto di questa bella foto nella quale la luce gioca un ruolo fondamentale.
Ciao e buona giornata

You realized a very good photograph of that detail.
I appreciate the blurred black frame you add around.
I wish you a warm welcome on TE, I hope you will find pleasure with us (I'm still a newbie too ;o)
Have a nice day,

You're capturing well this statue by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see "Lady with a drum" of the statue which is elaborate and powerful. The light is manageged effectively.

The tight frame is putting the statue in evidence. The point of view is showing the deails and colors of the statue. An higher ISO would probably give lighter colors. Have a nice day.

An interesting sculpture and the good tonal qualities helped to maximize its visual impact. Your choice of the vignette forced the viewer to concentrate on the figure. Lovely shot.
