This is the second image in the series,although uploaded a bit late.In this image ,you can see the Nizamat Imambara inside the Hazatduari Palace complex at Lalbagh.
Some tidbits about the Imambara :
The NizamatImambara was built by in 1847 by Nawab Nazim Mansur Ali Khan under the supervision and direction of Sadeq Ali Khan just opposite the Hazarduari Palace at a cost of more than INR 6 lacs.The main entrance just parallel to the north face of the Hazarduari Palace faces south. The masons took only 11 months to finish the construction as in addition to their wages they also received food which allowed them to work day and night. The present Imambara is 680 feet long, however the breadths vary. The central block that has the Madina is 300 feet long. It had been built slightly some feet away from the site of the old building in north. The Imambara stands just opposite to the Hazarduari Palace and is situated just on the banks of the Bhagirathi River. The gap between the shores of the river and the west wall of the Imambara may be a few feet.This Imambara is the largest one in India and Bengal.

Good to see you post after quite a while! Wonderful image of this historic building. Great framing and composition. The lovely lush green foreground is superb and so are the details.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

le dimensioni di questo palazzo sono enormi.
La foto è costituita da tre strisce di colore e nonostante la luce non sia delle migliori, il risultato è buono.

Wow! That's a very big building and it looks very beautiful too, including its surrounding gardens!
A very attractive picture too!
Special regards to the exposure, colors, horizontal format and composition!

Enjoy your week,

Salam Farhat and welcome back. Eleven months to build! Just a few hundred metres from my home several men with modern machinery are taking just about as long to build a small children's playground. Every time I drive or walk past they are either having a break, discussing something or leaning on something. Majestic building, impressive and elegant. i hope the air conditioning is operating for humidity can be a destroyer of things men build. Regards. Klaudio.

where have all the people gone? haha
its so strange to see a photo like this from India without any human presence at all!
the sky is a bit hazy, but thats totally out of your control.
its a fine horizontally layered shot, each with contrasting color.
thanks for this one, always interested in seeing your gallery

Namaskar dear Farhat
A very impressive building, beautifully photographed. I like the crisp colours and panoramic format a lot. Everything is superbly sharp and the wide angle composition of this impressive building gives us a great idea of its size.

The lush well maintained lawns make an excellent frame for the palace, and create with the sky an interesting layered effect. I like the light and colours.

Mais c'est tout simplement immense ce bâtiment. Les jardins sont aussi superbes. Une belle diagonale dans l'image et surtout un beau rendu malgré le temps.
ikeharel (63779) 2014-09-01 8:21
The building has an enormous width, to a scale that not possible a close range photo - and yet show its full view. The green lawn in front is fresh and lavish, meticulously cared garden.
Fine details, inspite a bit mist prevailed.

You have found and selected a great POV and good moment for taking this presentation. Like it! Due to the cold tonality the scene has a special mood. Attractive one! TFS.

Nice to see you post.
Tis is a fine image of this palace, and it's sheer size and scale speaks of its majestic stature. You chose a beautiful view of the place too, I think a head on shot of this would not have worked nearly as well as this does, the slight angle creates depth and gives a much deep appreciation for the length of the facade. The green grass is very vibrant while the sky has a very special color to it that I never see in my part of the world.
Thanks as always
ourania (37252) 2014-09-01 13:37
I like the way you used the panoramic frame, chose a subtle perspective instead of a symmetrical composition and made the extremely long façade look endless. The humidity and the haze create a mysterious, still atmosphere. The colours are charming, their contrasts interesting. Despite the distance and the difficult lighting, you captured fine details. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

The emerald green lawns are lovely. The photo is taken from a good POV with excellent DOF. Congrats and TFS!
jacquest (18871) 2014-09-05 3:47
This is quite a long building for sure and you caught it well in an oblique line together with the large gardens. The colors and details are well rendered even in this unfavorable weather.
adores (41576) 2014-09-05 9:03
That must be a monsoon sky! This is a really beautiful and huge building. I like the pov and the atmosphere given by the weather conditions.
danos (91014) 2014-09-06 23:13
nice the panoramic view of Nizamat Imambara,with the well chosen POV to adds depth and perspective in the scene.I like the architectural style of the building as the good presentation.
jcpix (13820) 2014-09-10 19:10
I'd give you points alone for using the word "tidbit" in your notes, but there's also a very pleasant image to enjoy as well. :) Having just returned from Russia and seeing much green landscape there, this picture held an instant attraction for me, and I like how the colors have been divided in this composition. Well suited for a panoramic format, stretching the palace from side to side. Have a great day. Take care.
adramad (41060) 2014-09-13 15:24
After a few days of vacation at the beach, I'm active again in these pages with you all.
Panoramic pride of this great palace, its dimensions are striking, one must be lost inside .... magnificent POV, with the green of the gardens in the foreground.
Enjoy the weekend.
PiotrF (11776) 2014-09-14 14:06
