Thanks so much, Tom and Ernesto. I'm now tweaking this image after noticing the highlights on the white building in the center. It's still a work in progress!

Very nice work Barbra, I really like the subtle tones. I really like the graduated contrast for top to bottom as well. It really makes the gentleman in the water stand out and is the first thing is see. Then my eye explores the gold temple to the right and then on to the rest of the image. Very well done, thanks for sharing.

This is a beautiful picture; the atmosphere is truly captivating. Amritsar is very near to where I live - in Lahore - it is just over the border to India. Makes me want to go there. But this is not to say that it is the place make the picture - it is your interpretation which counts, which brings out the magic.

Many thanks, Lukas. Our time in Amritsar was brief with only one visit to the Golden Temple. It would have been wonderful to see it at sunset, too.

Yes, well, creating a photographic image is often a matter of being at the right place at the right time. But then what matters is the ability to frame this moment, to catch and interpret the opportunity.

Reminds me of a famous dictum of Leonard Misonne, a Belgian photographer who was active in the first decades of the 20th century: "The motif is nothing, the light is everything." I wouldn't go that far, but the radical way in which he made his point seems to me inspiring.

I'm sure I've seen photos I liked better, but it's been awhile. Fantastic image. I do see the highlight area you're working on and I think it would help but the nice crisp foreground and soft background is killer great.
