An informative and well-stylized presentation of this famous edifice. Old-style black-and white mode is fully appropriate for visual presentation of such a historic, architectural and spiritual object, as Taj Mahal. Very well composed, perfectly photographed and informatively commented!

I really enjoy your photo because it is not the classic view of Taj Mahal. Despite this it is still a really fine composition. The B & W is a really great choice. TFS and have a nice weekend!

Nice classic shot. I do like the b&w choise. Very well framed. A famous place with a lot of captures.
Have a nice weekend,

I do feel this B&W adds a certain mood to the shot, a good conversion of the prominent which dominates as the eyes are focused straightaway onto the focal of interest making the rest becomes secondary. This mode sometimes gives us a cleaner more simplified image and less confusion to the eyes but the impact is tremendous and your message is conveyed effectively. There is something about B&W that makes us notice things instantaneously that we don't notice with colour. This works well, sharp with excellent tonal contrast. Beautiful works, Congrats

I haven't been in this exact place, but it seems a very good pov to photograph the Taj! I like the composition and also this b&w version, that is not so common! Good light also!

this is a lovely monochromatic picture the presence of which in your gallery strikes immediately as you seem to be fond of vivid colours in most of the views you have presented so far. Your point of view is great and not so usual. There's delightful depth and clarity and the surrounding area and its tones make the fascinating monument stand out wonderfully evoking the word "jewel" from yor note. A very interesting and absolutely pleasing image. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Good evening Miro,
Excelent choise of B&W image, as you say built of white-marble, and this well balanced the WB upon.
Fine clear shot, not always the air in good quality around there - so collected a fairly good contrast this way.

Always nice to see such an iconic, and often seen monument, from a different perspective. Stepping away from the traditional reflective pool and showing a different angle has added more interest to the already impressive Taj Mahal. Like everyone else, I agree that the black & white format adds more contrast and gives a more appreciative look at this wonder of the world. Good sharpness and clarity, nice presentation.
