Magnificient angle, the overpowering and majestic aura of the stupa is captured nicely.

Suggestion; If you took this pic from a point bit more to the right you would have captured the symmetry even better...

Thanks silent moment

I didn’t notice it until you pointed it out. It could have been much better in that way. I was in a hurry to take snaps that day, but I should give more attention to the little details as your suggestion.

Thanks again and I’m always open for your valuable critics =D

I couldn't guess this was Kelaniya temple. The angle makes it appear quite different and unique. But it's sad to see the stupa weather worn this much.

PS: if not for that tinge of blue on the sky (towards right) the photo almost looks like a sepia toned one. Great snap!

HI Harumi,

Thanks a lot for the comment. I was very close to the stupa while I was taking the pic and that’s why it looks this different.

Yes, but I guess by the time of Kalani perahara( pageant) they will give it a colour wash :D

Since I used high ISO I think I got this sepia kind a tone.
