Bikaner is often called "Red City", thanks to the colour of the stone that can be seen in its architecture.Together with Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, Bikaner was one of the three big kingdoms of the desert of Rajasthan. It's there that we can find the huge and impressive Junagarh Fort,one of my favourites in Rajasthan. It dates from the 16th century, it protects several palaces within its walls and ... it has never been conquered.
This is a detail I found there during my visit... at sunset.

this is a very pleasant detail of almost girlish type. It offers so much texture and depth that I can imagine touching it.
Simple and beautiful.
Thanks for sharing

Very graphical picture.
Your framing is perfect and you've done a great use of this elegant architecture to have a striking effect. Perfect use of the diagonal, as well.
The warm tones of the stone combinated with the dark shade give a strong contrast.
The fine quality reveals the textures, compliments.
Just one regret : I think it would have been interesting to move back just a little not to cut the engraved and refined flower.

Esta fotografia faz pensar a um céu de sol que deita, com nuvens, sombras e cores, e o sol. É uma composição muito hábil e muito artística. Excelente realização. Bravo.

An excellent close-up of the scalloped arches & the shadow against the red wall. The flower design on the top right is a good focal point as well. Well seen & composed shot!

this object for me has something of the eyelid that is opening or the egg. I am reading that you do it during the sunset but it makes me think to a beginning, to a some type of dawn. it's very beautiful, and very original. compliments
have a good evening

You have excellent quality here with fine texture and colour rendering. It has a strong visual impact... Maybe trying to get the entire stylized flower in the top right corner was also an option?

Lovely detail and crop. I love the soft lines and textures.

linda vista, gosto de fazer este tipo de foto, mostrandod eatlhes. esta imagem ficou muito bonita, vc usou bem a luz e as formas. entendo pq vc cortou a flor ao meio, mas se a foto fosse minha a teria colocado inteira e num canto da compo, questão de gosto pessoal, nada mais. linda a foto, parabéns

la recherche graphique est évidente et réussie, un zoom efficace, rien pour distraire le regard en dehors du sujet. Des couleurs fortes, des ombres bien portées et une grande netteté.

Ola dear Ana, this is so different from your usual compositions. We do not see close-ups from you often, this one is superb. The colours are so rich and the arches give such a strong graphical effect in combination with the play of light and shadow. TFS and I wish you a beautiful day. Parabens, Lisa
