Distant echoes of the Taj!

Posted by
Sriram (Chennai, India) on 28 October 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Perspectives from Mehtab Bagh side on a Monday morning! Backdrop of this farm is the stunning Taj!Thanks to the morning hues, was able to achieve a rich tonality thereby a neat overall composition. This one is my favorite from the series!

NIKON D50 1/400 second F/11.0 39 mm (35mm equiv.)

Spotlight feature for the 79th time and color spotlight for the 37th time - 116 times featured in total. Totally humbled and motivated to do better. Not a day goes without Aminus3 in it. Thanks Aminus3 community for such kindness. :)

The haze gives a wonderful boost to these brownish toned colours you have all over. The foreground you picked just leads us to the Taj.
Clever composition! Sweet colors!
