Sri Harmandir Sahib

By sawsengee  
Sri Harmandir Sahib Amritsar Punjab is the religious centre of Sikhism & congregation of sikhs from all over the world. After 9 days of staying in Amritsar and 9 days of continuous shooting of this temple (day & night), this is probably the best of my photo shoot.......with spotless blue sky, relatively still water reflection from the "nectar" pool & the setting sun casting additional golden sheen on the gold covered building. Here are links to further explain the history & religious significance of the temple:

p.s. no tripod are allowed within the temple precinct, so no long exposures to soft blend the water reflection. Best viewed large by clicking on the image. Smile

Bright, brash and colourful. I don't think the reflections need softening.

Fabulous photo, I like it very much, Sawsengee!
Dimitris

*** Your settings mean: 1/50s, f/32.0, ISO 100. I think no tripod is needed with 18-55 lens, but not enough low shutter speed to blend the water reflections. So, it's much better as you have taken the photo!
Friendly,
