A vy nice way to show this fine structure, the angle you chose gives great emphasis to the great height and the colors are really striking. Great note too.

Excellent photographic approach to present this monument, featuring both the intricate details and the impressive height.
I like the warm colour, nicely oriented to bring out the relief.
All the best for 2014!

Wonderful pic and perspective. The vertical format enhances the sense of height and the beautiful light helps to pick out the intricate détails carved on the stonework. The blue of the sky makes a nice temperature contrast to the warm tones of the minar. An enticing and well executed shot.

Hi Dwaipayan - Happy New Year to you and your loved ones, I hope that 2014 is a good year for you!
A simple but ideal composition here. The colours are nicely rendered and the fine detailing on the column clean and crisp. Nicely done! Warm regards Rosemary

An extremely creative shot with superb ant point of view, a fantastic architectural image and the splashing bold color interplays so well with blue background rendering an outstanding contrast, brilliant details with its fine crafted stonework in excellent light and always a huge temptation for me to take this type of shot. The shot is taken looking up, so there's expected convergence of verticals accentuating the height beautifully but the length of the shot, combined with closeness makes it very pronounced. Interesting write up as always. Well done and thanks for sharing, Congrats.

Excellent choice of perspective, this is a great way to photograph and present this minar. The color combination of the structure itself and the sky work harmoniously to be even more visually appealing, and the detail throughout is sharp. I almost feel as if I need to lean my head back to view the entire image. :) Really well done, smartly composed. All the best in 2014.

nice closeup of this beautifully decorated minaret. The carvings are so pretty! You captured it in a pleasant warm light. Perspective from the bottom resulted in an attractive geometry too.
Very well done,

This majestic 'ancestor of loudspeakers for prayers' is now selected by Unesco as a World Heritage Monument.
You show the best of it with fine details, its top being close to holiness!

I always say that the upwards POV is a great one for architecture, and this photo proves that exactly.
Think how boring this would look from a regular straight on pov.
this one is much more dramatic.
excellent color contrasts too.

Namaskar dear Dwaipayan
A minimalistic composition, but one which is beautiful and very eye-catching. I love the details you got in the column and the golden colours contrasting with the sky are pure magic. A fantastic study in perspective.
Thanks for sharing
