Asher,

Yes, especially in the stillness of the early morning, it is a dream-like sight.

Thanks for the reference - I shall now look up the work of David Sharir on the web.

By the way, Asher, where would you put this photograph? Under Landscape or Architecture?

It's perfect right here! When a photograph is just that, this is where it belongs. Yes you have used architecture, but this is a photograph, one that will print well and will get accolades.

I asked because often when I make photographs in Goa, they do not fit into any of the categories carved out in the well-known forums. There'll be a lush green field, for instance, suggesting Landscape, but there's also that insignificant church or temple in the composition where history, architecture, religion & culture all commingle. When shooting in the deserts of the American West or in many areas of Iceland the line is more clear (although I can think of images in those places as well where fuzzy situations obtain).

Oops, I meant "not insignificant" above.
