This is the front view of India Gate taken from Rajpath.
Some Tidbits about India Gate :
The India Gate is the national monument of India and it is situated in the heart of New Delhi.It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and built in 1931.Inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris,it is a prominent landmark in Delhi and commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the World War I. It is composed of red and pale sandstone and granite.Another memorial, Amar Jawan Jyoti was added much later, after India got its independence. The eternal flame burns day and night under the arch to remind the nation of soldiers who laid down their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971.

Some overexposured but interesting photo. The Gate reminds me similar construction in Mumbai (Bombay).
Clever choice of the point of view, an interesting information.

I couldn't think of a more noble frame for the structure in the end. The scattered people add dimension and life to the composition. Very well done, congratulations!

beautiful monument and a nice point of view with good perspective. Sharpness could have been better and I have my doubts regarding the bright blue frame but it's your choice anyway. Good informative note, my city also has gates as its chief landmark but they are much much older.

Nice capture of this monument, Arc de Triomphe seems to inspire a lot of people we also have on at the Paris Casino in Las Vegas as well as the Eiffel Tower. Good lighting considering it looks hazy with good dof with nice details. The people provided scale. Well done,tfs.

Impressive archway with a great sense of scale provided by the people who look like ants next to the arch!

Your subject is very nice, we get a fantastic view about these area,
One small remark dear Farhat, the colours of the sky are not the real colours, you use to much highlights! The sky is almost green on my screen
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

All the best.
Robert1969 (7120) 2013-05-02 22:38
My first thought was that you had visited Paris.
Good point of view and composition the diagonal
lines of the road and the opening of the
Delhi-III creates a nice depth and the vertical
position emphasize extra the depth and the
subject ( the Delhi-III).
ikeharel (58921) 2013-05-03 4:46
Mighty gate and a temple on depth within, Farhat.
Well premeditated shot, light was a bit ahead of yoy - but managed fairly well.
People around scale it's sizeable appearance.
ACL1978 (7507) 2013-05-03 16:47
A lovely monument and a great presentation of it, really emphasizing its impressive height and size. I wonder if scaling down the blues a bit and adding some contrast would give it more definition against the bright sky?
Cricri (108059) 2013-05-03 22:20
Un cadrage au top de cette impressionnante porte avec vue sur le second bâtiment, bonne lumière et présentation

The India Gate looks very impressive in your picture due to the good composition, where scale of the monument is clearly see, its vast sizes, and its artistic design. Perfectly good presentation of this memorial place!
Didi (57492) 2013-05-06 10:27
Ine view, there is some similitud with the Franch arch of triumph in Paris
The dark parts gave an over exposition to the sky
It's possible for me to make a WS

The Arc de Triomphe in Paris appears as a toy, compared to those mighty monuments captured with rigorous symmetry!
You did a great job!
pierrefonds (57973) 2013-05-07 15:19
The distance between the two gate is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the gate in the foreground. The presence of the people is giving life to the scene. An extra shot of USM would help the sharpness. Have a nice day.
adramad (38874) 2013-05-08 8:24
Sensational composition, which shows the famous and great door, the presence of all these people helps us to appreciate its great proportions, superb POV, with the template embedded in the arch.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb brightness and sharpness.
Have a good evening.
Urs (14082) 2013-05-09 6:35
The India Gate is a place where the independent parade is held, but also a focal point of all visitors of Delhi. It is must see. Fine pastel colour hues with high sharpness. Well done
mvdisco (17776) 2013-05-11 21:34

ChrisJ (100130) 2013-05-13 1:39
Excellent framing of the bg tower through the fg arch with perfect symmetry and good sharpness. The natural looking pastel colours work well here and the people add scale and context. Good shadow detail and well managed backlighting. Tfs!
kato (11630) 2013-06-10 1:49
You're capturing well this architecture by a good composition and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tall gate as national monument. It forms the symmetry and good design. it's interesting in hearing the historical construction origin as you note.
