Indian goth by Juniordave Indian goth by Juniordave
This is the statue in Batu Caves. It's a very unique caves. This statue is situated in the middle of the caves, and above it is an opening. Maybe so that all the prayers could ascend to heaven? heh

That's so surreally beautiful. The lighting is fantastically ethereal, and keeping it in black and white makes it feel so much more... precious, in a way. I can't really word it. Holy? Valuable? I dunno.
Predictably, though, I'm going to add my voice to those calling for a higher resolution. I crave details! Also, the titling you've used in the border looks a tadge tacky - it needs some better anti-aliasing.

what is anti-aliasing? i don't quite get it.

In Photoshop, when you type the text, you can choose to make it Strong, Crisp, Smooth etc.... that's the anti-aliasing. It just blurs the edges slightly to make it smoother, using pixels of intermediate colour, rather than just white or just black.

it's in my country - Malaysia. It's called Batu Caves. Well known for Hinduism. Whenever there is celebration, this place is filled with all the indians in every corner of my country... its good if u can witness it during the celebration day.

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was a photomanipulation. Imagine my surprise when I saw it was a picture.

I love how the monument stands out from the rest of the picture, it looks gloomy and scary, almost like it isn't really there. For me it just stands there, not caring if above is bright.

The only things I don't like are the shapes on the upper border, they kinda get in the way of the light semicircle, other than that, excellent shot.

Juniordave Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2004
u have a point. initially i intend to take the circular "border" where light streams from the centre, and the monument at the bottom. But... the monument is situated exactly at the middle of the surrounding... so this is the second option.
