Fatehpuri Mosque, a small 17th century mosque in red sandstones showing a little glimpse of a prayer hall, a fine example of Mughal architecture situated on the outside of Taj Mahal west walls.
I love the late afternoon golden glow overwhelming the space and always has a very serene atmosphere in a state of pure calmness.
An intimate moment with the Creator....
far, far away from all the noise and hectic maddening world outside........

The light is amazing in this, it is like we are peering into some ancient secret place, and it feels an honor to get a glimpse of this hidden world. Even more so when I read your note and you mention the crazy turbulent world outside, which is in such stark contrast to the feeling of utmost serenity in here. How brilliant that you were able to capture this image with the lone man praying, giving the sense of purpose perfectly. Magical image.
Thanks as always.

Lovely and beautiful picture!
Special regards to the exposure, colors, horizontal format and composition!
Although I miss a bit more of sharpness, the way it is can be adequate to the mood of this image: intimate!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your Sunday,

The interior style of this mosque seems quite original to me and actually makes me think of a Tibetan temple. In any case you have captured a quiet and solemn ritual where the man is deep in prayer in a shady area, while the sun streaming into the building creates a wonderfully warm glow on the nicely decorated long wall.

a wonderful depiction of the place and the concentration on prayer. I like very much the gentle dynamism of your composition, the sense of depth and the clarity that allow us to appreciate this humble but safe and peaceful setting. I like very much the placement of the praying gentleman in the foreground and in the shade. Colours, diffused light and shadows create a calm and intimate atmosphere so appropriate to the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Une image où il baigne une ambiance de toute beauté. La lumière latérale enveloppe littéralement les lieux d'une façon magique.
Ombre et lumière sont la richesse de cette composition.

Composition is superb. Contrast is very nice. I like the shadows of the pillars and a little dark in upper and right side of the picture. YOu are really a master photographer.

j'aime beaucoup la composition de cette photo ainsi que l'atmosphère paisible qui s'en dégage. C'est une très belle capture.
eldancer1 (25562) 2014-08-20 14:06
You are so perceptive and your composition shows it. I would never think of placing the subject to extreme leaving vast empty space but it's not really empty. There's so much one can see on those prayer rags. Love the lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

I like the light here! You captured very well the atmosphere of the place and the moment of faith. The man praying is very well placed and the details and colours of the little mosque are excellent!

I knew the place before reading your note, wall colors are unforgettably with the add of the modern clock
As always you manage light to create an special ambiance
In this capture of peace, silence and concentration
Good TE contribution, regards

A sacred moment captured with your camera. The colors are deep and pleasant, as usual. I am surprised they let you click while this fellow was praying.
CLODO (29268) 2014-08-30 4:56
i like the long perspective in orange/brown colors leading to the praying man in the shadow.
My best regards

Ciao dear Abmdsudi
This is indeed a very intimate moment. I love these types of shots, but am never brave enough to take them. So I take my hat off to you not just for the high quality of the image, but the courage that it took to take it. Your composition is excellent, with the worshipper in the extreme right foreground. The play of light and shade is very evocative, almost mystical and the warmth of light makes it a very inviting image. Well done, thanks for sharing.
