congrats my friend .. I love your “taj Mahal” series.

Really an inovative and fresh look at a very cliched and mature subject.
The pattern on the floor really goes very well with the overall structure of The Taj.


24th November 2008 at 8:26 am

Not the usual ‘tourist shot’ so this is lovely, liked the website too.

24th November 2008 at 8:59 am

Perfect composition.

24th November 2008 at 9:14 am

Great shot with highest marks. good position and selection of angle. Balanced light and the person in the middle gives such a good impression.

An excellent image.


24th November 2008 at 10:38 am

A more vertical cut, just like in the Google preview, would have been perfect.


24th November 2008 at 11:08 am

It’s the first time I see the Taj without anybody :D How did you do that ? :P
It’s very beautiful, very expressive in black and white. Congratulations !

…….because this is a side view, Mimsha! Taken from the adjoining mosque. If you look closely there are the usual “lots of people” on the plinth.


24th November 2008 at 2:13 pm

Such a beautiful photograph! and wonderful to see another view of the Taj Mahal …. Thankyou for posting it.

24th November 2008 at 3:15 pm

Perfect in every way.

Powerful shot. Great perspective and framing.

24th November 2008 at 3:38 pm

A great picture!
How far do these ’tiles’ stretch?
