It's an incredible structure. I can't even imagine seeing something like this being constructed.

Un décor qui en impose par sa majesté.
Great capture - the man in the corner seals the deal.

The figure in the foreground gives it a true sense of scale. An absolutely amazing and majestic structure. Love hte detail in the columns.
Very nice composition with the lone figure; love the structure as well
Lovely shot Charles .. looks grand
That is a huge building..It has dwarfed the person on the steps..Nice one Charles.

Even without the figure, I'd never would have thought this was India. A remnant of our British Empire, of course.
Hi Charles! How dis you get this effect? It seems drawn using charcoal. Very interesting.

This is reminiscent of a masterpiece of European architecture - but which one?

Thanks for sharing!

Almost Greek, heh!
I do like the lines in this shot. So many. And then the lone person adds an element of humanity.
