This is BBD Bagh, formerly known as Dalhousie Square.
The pond, Lal Dighi, is the most famous water body of West Bengal because all the Government Offices are situated around it. In a sense, BBD Bagh is the capital of Kolkata.
The area is crowded throughout the day.
I am lucky, in a smoggy morning, I got BBD Bagh like this.

trovo quasi emblematica questa foto con un cancello che in realtÓ non chiude nulla se non una parte del passaggio lasciando aperti i due varchi laterali.
Bella anche l'atmosfera nebbiosa a contrasto con la nettezza della zona in primo piano nella quale anche le foglie morte sembrano assumere un significato metafisico.
Eccellente la composizione.
Ciao e buona serata

I have been here many times but certainly not at this early hour, so this light and these colours are unknown to me. The emptiness of the place is also a new experience. I wouldn't normally call this area the most beautiful part of the city, but seen like this it no doubt has its advantages.

hello, a new look of kolkata in every pics. We are experienced to see this place crowded in day time but not like this. Light balance is very good. Good work against the light. Nice lake to see in morning atmosphere. Excellent work. Tfs.

Very nicely taken my friend.
Its a rare picture of BBD bagh with no people. The bad is the sky color, its always like that in Kolkata, Its always dull because of so much pollution probably.
Nice composition indeed.

Attractive Autumn scene, good idea to take this point of view, excellent composition. I think these colors are natural, but it looks like a sepia effect. My compliments! Well done!

Congratulations on getting this photo without a single soul, that is itself a major achievement!! Kono bangla bandh chilo naki? :-)
Very good composition and well chosen POV. Beautiful natural colors of dawn.
I am really enjoying your series to see Kolkata in a new light with a different perspective. You have been very successful in doing so.
Thanks for sharing my friend, chaliye jao!!

I wish I could rise up so early to greet the sun. Juxtaposition of the symmetric foreground with the non-symmetric background is very effective and makes for a lovely composition. The haziness adds some romanticism.

Lovely peaceful shot in all its moods and the almost sepia tone really adds a lot to the atmosphere and 'feel' Considering the light conditions, the exposure looks really pleasant and great that you managed to retain lots detail throughout, in particular the fallen leaves are lovely addition. Well done, Congrats

Lep pogled ujutru na grad ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Nice view of the city in the morning ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown the place and moment, beautiful colors.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

its always rewarding to capture scenes that are normally full of people, void of people during special times of day. and you have that exactly right here.
nice to see the boats in the water too, enjoyable mood and atmosphere.
