I know, I know, you need your sun glasses. It was very bright out on the plaza around the Taj Mahal. And it really does have a different look up close. The marble is smooth and shiny, and perhaps slightly more white then in this photo. I actually darkened the middle section a bit to soften the glare. It is an amazing creation, but after about 15 minutes up this close, I had to rest my eyes.

Hello Steve, good POV and framing, the use of wide angle lens enhances the big size of this beautiful building. Beautiful colors, especially the hi-key. Well done!

Wow, what a photo. I see you corrected the distorted lines which makes the photo even more interesting. I also like the human elements which show us the dimension of this monument.

Great shot. Looking forward to getting a few shots of my own later this year.

Sure it is bright, but it is right and these brilliant highlight deliver a strong visual impact, impressive building relative to the tiny people and good contrast between the two main colors.
Have a nice day jY

Well it's an interesting and original POV on this fantastic architecture.
But I had to put my sun glasses.

This is a very interesting view of the monument, which I've never come across. Very good POV, The light management is excellent. The clear sky in the background has made it more effective. TFS. Good going..
Best wishes of the season..!!
