Just another photo of the Taj! It was taken almost at sunset, when there were hundreds of visitors waiting to enjoy the moment!
The monument is really magnificent and its colours become amazing at this moment of the day!Not even the visitors could disturb me from enjoying it!
In foreground, we can see a photographer taking photos of the tourists to sell!
What really got my attention here was the red colour of the saris in foreground! - they stood there for a long time watching the monument!

Bien captée cette photo avec ces gens en avant-plan qui admirent ce beau monument qu'est le Tag Mahal. La place est bien animée et le rouge ajoute une belle touche de couleur à la photo.
Félicitations!... et bonne fin de semaine,

Hi Ana, You took a picture in an interesting day - 10.10.2010. fantastic view of Taj Mahal. The woman in red sari is really eyecatching. I was not so lucky with the weather - it was rain and fog. magnificent view of this world wonder.

J'aime beaucoup que tu aies laissé les personnages dans l'image. Cela donne de la profondeur à l'image et apporte aussi une très belle touche de couleur. L'endroit est magique.
nikkitta (14992) 2012-05-26 10:39
Great composition with the add of the red saris to add contrast and color at the beautiful monument
Have a good weekend
I know the place from where you take the shot, in front of the bench so utilized for photographers to take the classic souvenir shot

The bright red saris of these 2 apparently upper middle class women, contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness & the magnificent Taj makes a superb backdrop. Their husbands are dressed more sedately. Have a nice weekend!

Gravado na convenção bela exibição, excelente composição com cores Hmnshyny bem.
Muito, muito bonita.
No que diz respeito

Hi Ana, The Taj Mahal is on my things to see before I die list, so I am so envious, it is such a stunning building & beautifully captured in this photo, I'm a little unsure about the people in front as I question, do they add anything to the shot? However the two traditional strong red dresses probably do, so TFS, kind regards Wilson.

Have a nice Sunday, Vasilis.

Ces deux couples semblent en extase devant la beauté du bâtiment ...et on les comprend très bien. Ils constituent un bon premier plan avec ces touches de couleurs rouges apportées par les saris. Une belle photo de ce célébrissime endroit.

For sure vividness of red conveys a happy mood and atmosphere! The famous and most photographed image of this landmark, taken from good vpoint with evening light filtering through rendering a fine overall contrast, composition, depth and perspective. Fine works Congrats, TFS
serp2000 (40652) 2012-06-03 11:13
Great! I remember this temple just from my school books. Excellent presentation of the world heritage. I have read that Taj has some problem with the ground. Good timing shot, next time will may be too late.
adramad (38874) 2012-06-04 9:46
Me encanta esta composicion, el Taj Mahal es uno de los monumentos que mas me han impactado y no me canso de seguir viendo imagenes, esta composicion me parece ideal, con las dos parejas en primer plano contemplandolo, las mujeres con sus saris rojos, da un potente encanto a la imagen.
Un gran trabajo Ana, bien visto y mejor realizado.
Pasa una buena tarde.
mkamionka (30903) 2012-06-05 6:42
this is exactly how I would like to photograph it some day :)
Great POV with people in traditional clothes making a nice foreground.
Excellent presentation, TFS
Waylim (25362) 2012-06-05 8:59
Just fantastic, the view of the Taj alone is good enough, the presence of the local, especially the ladies in read really adds so much to the composition, the red are glowing under the sunset light.
npecanhuk (66862) 2012-06-05 17:52
O belíssimo Taj Mahal foi classica e lindamente fotografado aqui!
Qualidade excelente, com destaque para a composição, com as pessoas/a multidão muito bem posicionadas na cena!
mirosu (14984) 2012-06-14 4:23
Very scenic and beautifully taken. I like the great vivid colors, excellent clarity and marvelous contrast against blue sky. Excellent composition with the people in FG and the famous Taj Mahal Mausoleum in great light in the BG. Very well done Ana. Great photo work!!!
macjake (57432) 2012-06-14 12:27
another fine looking photo of the Taj.
what i like the most here is the stark contrast of the bright red against the stark white in the bg.
along with that, the blue toned sky and soft light is striking.
eldancer1 (29027) 2012-06-14 18:46
Wow! Beautiful capture of this world famous monument! Great lighting and good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
ikeharel (58921) 2014-08-29 4:21
A fabulous scene with the two ladies with red saries and the wonder of the Taj-Mahal.
Contrast is most prominent value on this image, yet good DOF managed under the favorable daylight(although you written about later hour of that day). Fine view and vivid with the many tourists stroll around the fabulous monument.
Bom fim de semana,
