Another classical! It was taken on the same day, also at sunset!
Here, we have the reflection of the Taj on the pool that exists in front. We can see many people around, walking or just sitting and enjoying the moment. There were hundreds of people there. The monument is really magnificent and its colours become amazing at this moment of the day!

Le Taj photographié de diverses manières. Je note ici un très bel effet de miroitement sur l'eau

Shooting the reflection of the Taj in the pool makes it look nice and painterly. Beautiful.

Your creative presentation of the Taj Mahal is very beautiful. The soft reflection and bold colors do seem like a painting. This photo is like a dream.

This is creative way of showing a picturesque impression of this famous landmark with spectacular composition and viewpoint. Looking at this gorgeous eye catching water reflection and its striking delightful colors is a real pleasure, and the wiggles further creates the vibrancy with the glimpse of reality above. Simply artistic approach, and captured marvelously. Congrats. TFS

Superbe reflet inversé du Taj donnant beaucoup d'originalité à cette photo, les taches colorées apportées par les vêtements de visiteurs étant un plus important pour l'image.
patdeph (35748) 2012-05-30 21:56
a very beautiful and different way to photograph the Taj.The saris, the blue sky, and the light give magnificent colors.
annjackman (19285) 2012-05-30 22:02
It is a classic that you have done particularly well. The colours in the reflections and the unmistakable Taj make a first class composition. The blue, watery BG is superb. Excellent - congratulations.
Kind Regards, Ann

this picture is beautiful, fascinating and touching. The framing is most effective. I love the textures and lovely colours, the magnificent lighting and exquisite colours. The atmosphere is awesome. I love the composition and the posture of the man in front of the great monument. I'm sure that you, the people in the frame and us, the viewers, all share the same sense of wonder here. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Ola Ana, Yes, it is another classic but very pleasant one. I like this blurred image of Taj Mahal, with some human elements. Well done.

Hello Ana - I am back after a short spell of self-imposed exile and glad that the Pinterest saga has been resolved. I see you have made use of the new feature already! More power to the little people!
Beautiful shot and a great take on a familiar building. I love the soft painterly effect. Top class shot. Warm regards Rosemary

divail (8330) 2012-05-31 19:36
C'est une superbe prise. L'image est parfaite, avec juste ce qu'il faut de flou pour réaliser qu'il s'agit bien d'un reflet dans l'eau. Bravo pour les couleurs.
yaya13baut (3344) 2012-06-01 2:30
it's difficult to be original here, I think you managed to do it.
strange feeling, people are like colorful ghosts walking in a blurred place.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-06-02 5:01
A reflexão é absolutamente linda. Forms, as pessoas e as cores estão muito bem visto. A luz eo enquadramento são excelentes. Bravo.

bravo et amitié
macjake (55664) 2012-06-02 9:13
wow, you stole my shot! :)
I've always said to myself that when i eventually travel to India, i'm going to get the Taj upside down in a water reflection shot!
good for you! Its fantastic.
love the colorful attire of the people standing around too. Splendid shot!!!
PecoBud (3824) 2012-06-03 11:17
All I can say is I thought I'd seen it all, but now, yes I have. This photo took my breathe away, so amazing and artistic with perfect color and light control, and the clarity off the water reflections are alluring and superior in every way!! Your timing and POV are one of the best I've seen, great and wonderful job Ana, I love what you've done here, Bravo!!
TFS.........Your Friend from California........Buddy

thanks for dropping by! Anyway, I really love the creative juice in this image, the superb reflections and the way you've presented taj mahal. Unique, original and very nice! Remarkable image!
Royaldevon (28745) 2012-06-04 1:15
We, as photographers, all love reflections and this is a particularly fine one. It has the appeal of an impressionist painting.
Isn't it surprising how the colours always seem more vivid in the reflection than in the reality!
My warm regards,
mvdisco (17760) 2012-06-04 11:43
Beautiful reflection on water and lovely composition,
Excellent details and sharp presentation,
nice work and very well taken and done.
mvinagre (849) 2012-06-04 15:55
Ficou muito bem esta foto, com reflexo do Taj grande efeito, e as cores muito boas.
Cricri (105497) 2012-06-05 10:31
J'aime l'originalité de ces reflets renverser, détails et couleurs bien rendu, une très belle réalisation
Yiannis84 (2824) 2012-06-05 16:01
Wow! es una gran foto..colores, luzes idea y ejeccucion estan todas perfectas..genial..!
Angshu (55407) 2012-06-05 22:00
Nice picture. This looks like water colour. I had posted a similar picture quite a while back. The shimmering reflections work well.
So you're going to Thailand soon? Which places...Chiang Mai etc?
ChrisJ (96846) 2012-06-06 7:55
A clever inversion and a perfect image to do it with too. Looks like an abstract or impressionist painting. The pink, red & orange saris contrast well against the blue sky. Looks like an old colour tv on the blink too! Tfs!
SWEETFREEDOM (22524) 2012-06-06 23:15
beautiful reflections and colors, good light too
dip (23596) 2012-06-07 3:07
you've the scene very well seen and captured,
it's a wonderful,like painting,composition with amazing combination of colors,excellent framed,
thanks for sharing,
josepmarin (57711) 2012-06-08 6:55
Olá, amiga Ana,
una idea fantástica para crear la composición en base a los reflejos del maravilloso Taj, invirtiendo la imagen, con lo que has obtenido un eficaz efecto de pintura en la imagen, aprovechando la ligera distorsión gráfica producida por las pequeñas ondulaciones del agua.
Es una foto muy atractiva, creativa y dinámica.
Pili e Josep
jemaflor (83859) 2012-06-10 1:22
Excellent and original these colourful reflections on water, an interesting painting effect, well the human presence, tfs.
Sergiom (58870) 2012-06-12 5:48
Cette photo est spectaculaire et une des plus belles que j'ai vu du Taj.J'aime les personnages colorés devant qui ajoutent une touche de réalité à ce monument irremplaçable.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2012-06-12 23:29
excellent. i like this unusual cropping with the touch pf colors. It is very well framed too.
Waylim (25186) 2012-06-13 23:06
Clever and innovative presentation turning the image upside down and show only the reflection. Beautiful colors, good sunset light. the pattern makes it looks like an impressionistic painting.
sacavem (18610) 2012-06-19 13:59
Grande olho fotográfico, muito bem capturada. Parabéns gostei muito deste clássico.
bona (12482) 2012-06-26 4:00
que foto impressionante. Parece até uma cena de animação da Disney. Adorei as cores e imensa nitidez que conseguiu nesse reflexo. Linda foto parabéns.
danyy (0) 2012-06-27 4:24
superbe et bien pensé, l'éclat des lumières est un peu estompé mais les couleurs sont demeurées intenses voire vives. Un cadrage à la renverse parfait.
ruisc_pt (10527) 2012-07-04 14:12
É clássica mas mete "inveja".
Nard (6970) 2012-07-10 2:11
Splendid picture with this reflection of the taj and the colored people. It is really an artistical shot looking like a painting. Congratulation.
CLODO (30068) 2012-07-10 2:17
A dreamy world with ghosts wandering in front of the Taj!
miscaro (236) 2012-07-11 6:24

i agree with other comments below. It is not a easy task to take an exceptional shot of such a popular place, but i like your contribution very much. Creative picture with a dreamlike atmosphere, perfectly cropped and good colors,well done!
Have a nice evening.
mayjayne (3455) 2012-08-11 20:56
A wonderful presentation of the much photographed Taj Mahal. Very well thought our and presented!!
westcoastgirl1 (666) 2012-08-27 17:58
Wonderful colours captured in this unqiue photo. The reflections are stunning to view.
Congrats on this one.
jcpix (13596) 2013-03-17 11:37
I think the numerous comments before me are a true testimony to the beauty and appeal of this photo. It's a creative a fun way to make something new out of a much photographed subject. This really has a painted look and feel, which gives it another quality that is not the "norm" and makes it stand out from the rest. The inverted and reflected composition make this a tremendous image, a very good eye indeed! Compliments on a terrific shot! Have a nice day.
satyakki (640) 2013-04-06 2:41
One of the best reflected photographic image I ever saw. It seems the reflection was controlled completely by you- such is the composition. I have been here so often but never could a pov as this.
Cheers and thanks for sharing.
ikeharel (56190) 2013-04-09 7:29
An inverted reflection that looks most admirable: great clear outlines and the people staring at.
Bright daylight allowed a fantastic scene.
Exquisite taken shot.
gus72 (3719) 2013-08-31 16:56
Hi Ana !!
Great idea and fantastic execution.I will remember this one as I can only imagine myself so absorbed in looking at the temple and NOT thinking of the many photographic possibilities.
Lovely effect that created a slightly blurred image.
A credit to you.
Have a nice Sunday.
