*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An impressive image that meets the challenge fully.

This is certainly a very colourful image of an elaborately adorned location of worship that undoubtedly fulfils the challenge. For this sort of image to work at its very best it needs absolutely perfect symmetry and although you have got very close to that goal it is not quite there. You are just a fraction too far over to the right, although its very marginal it is noticeable to anyone who would look closely enough, but fortunately that is probably not the case for the majority of your viewers here. I can't quite be sure but there also feels a very slight tilt to the right.

You have done well to control the exposure the way you have, its good. I think your aperture is probably smaller than you actually needed, assuming you are at the 24mm end you would have a larger DOF anyway and I think you may have managed with f8, certainly f11 which have given you about 1s+ shutter speed which would have sharpened your moving person much better and made him less distracting. You do, of course, have plenty of scope with your ISO too which even at 400 would have eliminated any movement completely.

Nicely done, thanks for your submission and apologies for the delayed critique, as they say, 'better late than never', or at least I hope it is, Sid

.Well managed dynamic range here, and good composition, but I'm distracted by the blurred person at the right
