Mysore - Flower Power

Back to Mysore, India.
Besides visiting the beautiful Devaraja flower market and seeing the flowers and garlands in the temples, I was also lucky to be in Mysore during a flower and plant festival.
This took place on the grounds of the Mysore Palace, the perfect location to take beautiful pictures.

My memory of Mysore will always remain one with lots of flowers.

I hope you will enjoy the pictures in the WS too.

Bonjour, cher Paul,
Émerveillement garanti en contemplant cette réalisation.
Une beauté architecturale qui défie l'entendement (coût de la construction);
J'admire l'ensemble avec intérêt;

Hello Paul,
I am nicely surprised to see that you hadn't exhausted your supply of Indian photos. This is another fantastic display of flowers, even though I am more fascinated by seeing them hanging around the necks of women or statues of Hindu deities. But these photos are well taken. The palace is just as impressively designed as the garden.
Kind regards,

Dag Paul,

Alle vijf foto's hebben hun eigenn betekenis.
Zij allemaal heel mooi en kleurrijk.
Het gebouw met de vele bogen en vele koepels is heel aantrekkelijk.
De vele bloemen zorgen voor de nodige kleur
Ook de diepte en het perspectief are exclment genomen.
Prachtig foto werk, bedankt.

Prettige zondag,

Hello Paul, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the floral monumet and the palace in the background, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good afternoon and happy start of the week.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Ciao Paul, great view of fantastic palace, lovely composition with a lot of flowers, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Paul,

Flower power indeed! A beautiful, colourful palace, preceded by this sumptuous display of flowers, appearing like a small temple! The colours and the details are exquisite!

I plant flowers around our village and I know effort and (in my case) what expense this would require.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Good evening Paul,
Stunning sight of the "flowers-power" display on the foreground to the palace, which by itself is a majestic architecture and very intriguing to look at.
Fabulous colors shining under favorable light condition.
My best regards,

Hi Paul,
These flower installations are just fantastic. And I can only imagine how much work they have required. You chose your angle very well so that foreground flowers and background palace are in good balance.

Hello Paul,

From this angle the floral sculpture seems to be competing with the impressive bg palace. Good sharpness and color and the repetition of the red domes and turrets is nice. Tfs!

Hallo Paul,
Een schitterende foto waarin de enorme bloempracht en het indrukwekkende paleis vechten om te meeste aandacht, maar dankzij de goede en gebalanceerde compositie komen beide uitstekend tot hun recht. Het licht was ook heel prettig en de blauwe lucht is de perfect achtergrond voor alle kleuren en dan nog het meest voor de rode koepeltjes.

strange, I remember writing the critique and it is not there. Splendid view of the Mysore Palace surrounded with so many flowers. It is rather rare in India, who would care for flowers, water them? Fantastic composition.

Have a nice day


Bonjour Paul,

Le monument est très beau et très mis en valeur par ta photo.
Le premier plan est très bien choisi.


Salut Paul,

Good perspective of the image, very pleasing to the eye.
Colorful, sharpness and brightness are perfect.

You have a good day.

Bonjour Paul
Quel joli décor naturel, magnifique réaliser, c'est très beau avec en plus ce merveilleux Palais, les 4 WS sont aussi magnifiques a voir
Bonne soirée

Hello Paul,
I like your POV that connects the floral sculpture to the fancy building in the background. The colors are lovely and you have the DOF to do justice to your composition.

Hello Paul,
Beautiful photos from the festival. It's an explosion of color. I also like the red domes on the palace. Everything is so vibrant and lush.

Bonsoir Paul,

L'étendue du jardin crée de la profondeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du jardin et du palais. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


Hi Paul
i just returned home a couple days ago from a 2 week holiday in Croatia, i'll post photos soon.
great to be back and check out your gallery. this one stood out for me because of the overall composition. Its such a well thought out scene, so pleasing to the eye, its natural and suits the sight lines so well. splashes of colour too, and of course the architecture is A+. thanks for all the WS photos, still don't get how you can post so many of them, I can only post 2. cheers
