    Beautiful image Biren, I like how you have composed this from the low angle. The lighting is very good as well.

  • Thank you very much Terry… I always felt pointing camera upwards towards subject created mood of magnificence or supremacy… Such ancient treasure are indeed spiritually superior… Glad I could capture this mood and convey it to you as a viewer…
