We've got another Arctic cyclone with some snowing and cold wind.
But I have a lot of so warm memories and picturesque images. They are warming up me.

This is the Hindu temple in the West part of Sri Lanka, not so far from Negombo town.

Hello Serghei,
I really hope your sun overloaded pictures will protect you against the harsh Russian winter.
You show us here a very nice combination of a lush green tropical environment with the enormous wealth of colours of the temples in Negombo.
If I'm not mistaken, this is the style of South Indian temples.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Serghei,
nice place, and the colors here are impressive. Great capture, my friend.

Hi Sergheï,
Interesting architecture, nice light capture and interesting result with all these colors and your frame, tfs.

Hi Serghei,
A lot of colors and shapes in this temple scene. I always had a personal taste matter for places like this: kitschy or not? Anyway, great shot!

Proviet Serghei,

Already winter began in Krasnokamsk? Poor you:) Great that you have at least memories of hot places. this temple in Sri Lanka looks similar to the Hindu temples in southern India. When I saw them so colourful, at first I was delighted, than I found it a bit kitchy. But splendid view.
But maybe I would cut this lower part, it disturbs the view of the eample above with the big standing Buddha.

Hugs from Warsaw


Hello Serghei,
Contrary to Malgo I think the bright red and yellow lower part is a wonderful eye-catcher and also your personal contribution to the composition. The wall is a nice frame, assisted by the tree to the left and the branch in the upper right corner. The colorful temple is interesting and well worth a good look.
Kind regards,

  • Great

The colours in foreground, do me think at different picture of my friend, he makes every year a trip to India.
The Hindu Temples are a very nice addition.
Colours and sharpness are nice done.
A lovely composition, excellent presentation.

Best regards,

Bom dia Serghei

Hello Serghei,
