I like it. The sky is very cool. Wondering though if there is some lens distortion going on that could be corrected for? The temple seems to have a curve to it instead of rising in a linear fashion it almost looks a little fisheye.

Overall, I like it. There's too much empty sky though - I'd cut that empty sky in half. It doesn't add much to the photo.

Agree with JohnG- a nice shot,but cut half the sky out... will make the temple more majestic...

Thanks for looking at the image and sharing your feedback.I am sure these will help me in the correct direction. I will cut out the sky and check.

@@ ramcewan .. I checked in google ,the temple has a little curve.

I like it, but the image needs a bit of horizontal straightening.
And lose some of the unnecessary sky.

Nice shot, I do like the overall end result. As said before, loose some of the sky as blank space is boring and in this case it also makes the temple look smaller. It was built as a grand temple and still is so lets show it as grand as it can be shown. The horizontal straightening is a little off to me. Then again my wife says I'm a***l about that point in all my pictures.
