    I this the Meenakshi temple? But it looks a bit overdone to me. Also I'm not sure about the background.

    O, Mike sir; you know South India especially Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have full of such tmeples... this is actually from Chamundi Hills, Mysore, Karnataka.
    This is a really heavily processed image

    Very interesting, however it has a lean to the right, as you view to the top it appears more so. I myself would like to see it in its natural colour the reason I have never been there so I would like it as it appears not with colour channels switched. As you are use to seeing items like this often the colour changing is of interest to you. You are the photographer so you can do what you like, so the only real thing to improve it would be to straighten the image.

    Cheers:

    Beautiful architecture like this does not need to be heavily processed. I hope you come back with more "natural" shots of the awesome temples in your state.

    I love the original and really love the B&W. IMO they are a nicer (better) than the processed one you posted. I think this is a great example of the "less is more" adage that is often used.
    I also think the 2nd photo helps answer a question that was posted on another thread regarding why anyone would use black and white rather than colour. The shape, form and overall feeling of this building are really well revealed through monochrome.
    Well done, lovely stuff

    Nandakumar,
    The first picture you posted is the negative of the photo you should have posted.
    Reversing the negative, I see it is a beautiful temple and the PP that you applied enhanced its forms.
    Sincerely,
    Antonio.
