Despite the dull sky the colours of the mosque are properly reflected.
The people give a good sense of scale.
Best regards, Paul

The camera sensor was fixed on the building that's why the sky is washed and this is normal
The solution is to use a grad grey filter
I have done a WS

A less often seen part of the Taj Mahal complex. This mosque certainly doesn't get the attention it deserves, being totally outshone by the white marble of the Taj. I like the mild and natural colours and the inclusion of a few people.

Nice side view of the mosque. Thanks for sharing,

An inpressive view on the Mosque, Farhat, and fairly taken the distance to show it whole.
Light was not so favorable, yet you had managed to show its details in a fairly well texture.
People gave good scale along.
Have a nice day,

I like the neatness of the picture. And the fact that you have been able to focus on the building in the absence of crowds.
The colors have come out vividly.

beautiful architecture, the weather was not perfect but you did the best you could in these circumstances.
pierrefonds (67539) 2014-03-24 4:23
The Taj Mahal is framing well the Mosque. The point of view is showing the détails and the colours of the Mosque. The light is giving a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.
mirosu (16273) 2014-03-24 5:05
Excellent view to this nice mosque which we cannot see on many photos, overshadowed by famous Taj Mahal.
I like your viewpoint and also inclusion of the walking man.
Very well done.

Red walls and white domes, the architecture of the mosque is magnificent. You included a man in white in the picture, very nice. This is one of your fine pictures.

Muslim mosques, in terms of huge interest in architecture and engineering of the structure is built, the Taj Mahal is a beautiful example of Muslim mosques
A good resolution

Interesting Moorish architecture with Taj Mahal Mosque, especially the blend of art and geometrics, and enhanced by the use of red sandstone.
Thanks for sharing,

Persons add savor of photo.
Have a nice afternoon

You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see grand Mosque inside the Taj Mahal Complex. It looks like elegant and good design. And, it's also impressive in dome roof and tasteful color combination.

It's always nice to see one of the other magnificent buildings around the Taj, anywhere else this mosque would get more attention but here it stands often overlooked in the Taj shadow,
I think the people are an important element to give scale but they are also nicely placed throughout the frame
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-03-25 9:46
a very good and informative note here with such an impressive structure. The architectural detail of this mosque is really enjoyable. Nicely presented shot. Tfs.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-03-25 11:25
Good view of the building from slightly angular POV. NIce depiction of foreign architecture. Like the contrast between red sandstone and white marble. Nice shot, thanks for sharing.
ChrisJ (115529) 2014-03-25 13:41
The 4 people in the far distance right near the temple and standing in the huge doorway certainly add scale to this massive temple. Good sharpness and diffused light with realistic looking color and saturation. The additional man in the fg adds depth. Tfs!
UlfE (14641) 2014-03-25 13:41
The Taj Mahal is well-known but this mosque is less known. I would this Beautiful building would have been much more attractive for photographers if it had been somewhere else. You have taken a nice photo of it and the inclusion of some people adds a sense of scale. TFS and have a nice day!
mcmtanyel (23995) 2014-03-25 19:17
A less well-known aspect of Taj Mahal depicted quite well. Congratulations & TFS!
jcpix (13930) 2014-03-25 19:51
Happy to see this one featured again, Patrick recently posted a picture as well. It really is nice to get a glimpse of the other, lesser known sites surrounding the famed Taj Mahal. Wonderful inclusion of the gentleman coming in from the right side, adding that human element with a touch of motion. Beautiful architecture and rustic colors with the prominent domes as a background element. Nicely arranged and timed. Thanks for shedding some light on this mosque. Have a great new day. All the best.

beautiful and impressive,
Thanks for sharing,

the cloudy sky and the difficult light have not avoided you for to take a good photo of this wonderful mosque, where we can enjoy its rich and elegant architecture.
People adds a good reference and a bit of vitality into the composition.
A great work.
Cricri (120521) 2014-03-27 11:20
Très jolie architecture, les détails et couleurs, les coupoles de différentes dimensions, bien capter sous le fond blanc, les personnes donne l'échelle, la personne en blanc est bien placé dans le cadre,
jurek1951 (42196) 2014-03-27 23:00
a beautiful photo of this elegant architecture, the composition is very nice, great lights and details, splendid shot,
adramad (46496) 2014-03-28 11:00
Despite the greyish day, you've captured a wonderful picture of this splendid mosque, which is a great complement to the whole Taj Mahal, its lovely reddish color contrasting with the pale tone of their domes.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-03-29 10:16
I don't think I've seen a mosque that is ordinary in design, they all look beautifully created. Awesome capture even with difficult lighting condition. Good details. Well done, tfs.
Silvio1953 (145605) 2014-03-29 11:52
Ciao Farhat, great view of fantastic architecture, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

It's not the main monument of the famous Agra Taj Mahal complex Fabbs, but anyway you should post a picture of that ancient mosque, good light and sharpness, excellent report, greetings
macjake (69143) 2014-04-03 8:56
the Mosque thats gets forgotten :)
this one is just as beautiful, just a bit smaller in statue.
I think this one stands out so well because of the color.
like the addition of the man on the right casually walking by.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-06-01 12:50
Good capture of the impresive mogul mosque with few people, must have been early in the morning
Like the composition with the approaching man on the right
I prefer your sky at the one in PS
