Woman in patterned light

An ordinary moment while visiting an ancient palace in Rajasthan, india provided the opportunity for this photograph. Slanting light through marble lattice work lit up her upturned face marveling at the intricate ancient crafsmanship. The blue and red of her dress stands out in this otherwise relatively monotone photo.The play of light and shade enhances the ambience of the photo.
