Murshidabad - I
I am sorry for keeping myself away from TE for over a month now.I had a hectic schedule which kept me busy through out the month.I took a day off from my official works and spent an afternoon in the historical town of Lalbagh in Murshidabad district of West Bengal.This is the image of the famous Hazarduari Palace in the heart of the Lalbagh town taken on my I-phone 4S.
Some tidbits about the Hazarduari Palace :
Hazarduari Palace is located in the campus of Kila Nizamat in Murshidabad, in the Indian state of West Bengal. It was built in the nineteenth century by architect Duncan Macleod, under the reign of Nawab Nazim Humayun Jah of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa (1824–1838).The foundation stone of the palace was laid on August 9, 1829, and that very day the construction work was started. The palace has now been transformed into a museum which houses collections from the Nawabs like priceless paintings, furniture, antiques and so on. The famous one is the mirror and the chandelier.The Hazarduari Palace Museum is regarded as the biggest site museum of Archaeological Survey of India and has got 20 displayed galleries containing 4742 antiquities out of which 1034 has been displayed for the public. The antiquities include various weapons, oil paintings of Dutch, French and Italian artists, marble statues, metal objects, porcelain and stucco statues, farmans, rare books, old maps, manuscripts, land revenue records, palanquins mostly belonging to eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a bamboo from Assam and so on.The style of the palace is Italian and was built in the 19th century and Greek (Doric) style.This was designed as a replica of the Buckingham Palace.

Fine panoramic view of this huge palace, with ornate Georgian architecture blending Greek/Roman with at the time modern 19th century materials. The three temple fronts are especially attractive.
Would enjoy visiting this fine museum some day.
Thanks for sharing,

welcome back! This is a simple and appealing symmetrical composition, a little titling to the left perhaps but very nicely complemented by the colours. Bright and subdued tones have been combined in a pleasing way, the palace and its grounds are sharp and interesting. The man also photographing ahead of you makes a great point of reference, placed exactly in the middle of the lane. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A very formidable looking palace and it still amazes me to see buildings built long time ago still standing and functional. Nicely captured with nice details. Well done, tfs.

A good briefing note, which introduces us to the valuation of this great building, a great destination reopened as a museum, so that everyone can visit.
Have a nice day.

welcome back,this is a very nice panoramic shot of the Palace,your I phone has captured the magnificent building very well in a very pleasing symmetrical composition.
Clarity is first rate.
pierrefonds (65898) 2014-08-28 17:16
The length of the alley is giving depth to the composition. The presence of the people has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details of the Hazarduan Palace. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
danos (97519) 2014-08-29 1:07
nice the panoramic view of Hazarduari Palace with the presentation of the visitors to add scale in the scene.
I like the creative perspective as lead-in the eye on it.

Tigerlily (3379) 2014-08-30 2:39
Nicely captured image, beautiful green colour.. the person who was taking photo in the foreground added on more interests...
mohammad_H (9904) 2014-08-30 3:37
this photo has a technique of recording angles and parallel lines in the foreground, in the middle of the frame and the frame Transparent image with higher resolution Eye-catching and pleasant.
Best wishes to you
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-30 4:48
Very nicely shoot the historical architecture, good detailing and composition, color is quiet natural.
jacquest (18927) 2014-08-30 5:07
I like this very symetrical composition with a long distance toward the building that gives deepness. The architecture in interesting and the image has very good quality.
siudzi (34141) 2014-08-31 1:13
This is so beautiful and elegant presentation. Your perfectly executed symmetry of the composition supports the result so well. Superb image!
Have a nice day!
mcmtanyel (22216) 2014-09-01 21:29
The palace itself is photogenic, the symmetry in the photo is pleasant and the leading lines that the road provides leads one into the photo. Lovely composition, good colors and sharpness, here is proof that one can take quality photos with phones.
Tue (36280) 2014-09-02 15:53
Great view of the palace. You used the path really well in the foreground. It leads the eye nicely into the shot and towards the palace. Nice inclusion of our fellow photographer in the middle too.
delpeoples (57678) 2014-09-02 19:43
Namaskar dear Farhat
Welcome back to TE, we have missed you.
I like this series on this most majestic building. Things always seem a lot bigger in India for some reason. Beautiful perspective and I like the tiny person in front of you taking a photo, which gives us an excellent sense of scale.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
josepmarin (58357) 2014-09-04 4:12
the image keeps a good quality though to have been taken with your I-Phone.
I like this elegant colonial architecture, with its neo-classical style, in a framing which captures all the facade in a good wide angle.
The perspective of the path in the garden is deep, and people provides a nice vital sensation, specially the photographer in the middle of the framing.
A nice work.
PiotrF (16910) 2014-09-05 5:44
Fine panoramic view of Hazarduari Palace.
Good framing and lovely natural colors. The light is perfectly managed and the sharpness is excellent.
Very well done.
Oceania (5202) 2014-09-08 6:39
I can tell this architecture is not traditional style of India, but more western. The composition is perfect for this picture. Thanks for sharing.
serp2000 (44075) 2014-09-12 8:02
Oh, great presentation of the British heritage in the Greek style in India. Just an example of globalisation, I think. Excellent panoramic composition, fine DoF, marvelous colors.
