look beyond the broken walls and the crumbling roof... and you will see true beauty

*Experiment with tone and textures.

This is another image from my recent visit to "qutub shahi tombs" in Hyderabad. A big portion of this place is in ruins and as you can see the roof is crumbling, the walls are broken and overall it is in a very sorry state.

When I entered this hall, I was astounded by the light coming through the roof and the very interesting design of this hall. I have tried here to experiment with some tones and textures to give it an antique, old world feel but am not really sure I like the final look of this image.

This is again a vetorama because it was not possible to fit everything in one frame so I took two different shots of the top and bottom and stitched them together.

Thanks for your visit and comments. Have a beautiful weekend!
