The PP Work that I did here is in Adobe Photoshop CS6 is under Filter>Render>Lighting Effects> Spotlight1...you must have your main image on the top layer and play with it until you get the desired effect...there is a lot you can do there...I am just doing very basic since I got to go to bed...:)
TRY the Filter and explore what you can do!
Blow it up and then see from a distance - Have Fun!

Hi David,

This is photographed many times, your version holds much attraction. I like the pale tones created with your effect, tfs

stv ;o))

This is a well taken capture of one of the seven wonders in the World, David ji!

Superb details and perfect POV with nice management of light and exposure.
The black frame enhances the overall contrast and thus final appeal of the picture.
A well executed work!

I don't know what you wanted to do through the PP but I like the result: at first glance it serms that the temple in BG is blurry, but in fact it is not, just an illusion with the brightness of the FG. The frame too , adds an overall impression of majesty. Well done

Hello David,
Nine capture with perfect clarity,thanks for sharing,
with regards,_JOy
