I just saw advertised a group trip to south India stopping enroute from A to B at Thanjuvar for a hour or so. Sure in a hour you will see the main temple, admire the huge Nandi bull, and look in awe at the entrance gopurum. But Thanjuvar and its amazing temple is worth so much more than an hour, as I've said the light plays with the temple carvings at different times of the day. Sometimes you don't see the carvings and sometimes they jump out at you.

Hello dear Elaine,
It is why I do not go with the groups, I want to see more than just to have a look at the most visited place. And staying somewhere in the morning and evening when the groups left is also important for me. There is a lot of to see in Thanjavur. Excellent composition - three men, one in quite striking red, and three gods in the wall.
Have a nice day

I really like your choice of crop here, which compresses the frame vertically and pushes the two white-clad gentlemen to the edges. Very thirdsy! And no sky or any other elements to deflect our attention. But maybe it's the eye-contact from the three men which is the most compelling feature. Are they posing willingly, or glaring at you for intruding on their presence?

A very nice "nothing special " photo (that's a compliment) from attractive Thanjavur. The three gods and three elderly men are nicely matched. The man in red is especially eye-catching. Traveling in a group is like a nightmare to me. Whenever I happen to meet a group somewhere in the world, or read the details in an advertisement, I feel very uncomfortable.

A very nice scene and a good title for this photo, you have caught the moment very well, I think these three men are just as wise as the three gods

Hem bir karede güzel bir fotograf hem de üçü ayrı ayrı iyi bir fotograf

A great ensemble of characters. This shot really should be seen in a much bigger format. It would make a superb double page picture or cover in one of those picture books.

Hello there! Great picture, three people watching you and the three gods too. Well framed, you cropped away what would distract. God job. Greetings
