The elderly couple take a short break who seem to be admiring the view across the misty Maota Lake and the hills beyond. I love the way they appear to be putting themselves in the natural frame and set off the composition, at the same time creating some empty space feeling.....
Amer or Amber Fort complex is one of main attractions in Jaipur, located about 11 km north of town sitting on a hillside over looking Maota Lake. It was built by Raja Man Singh I in 16th century and it was later extended to its present form by Raja Jai Singh I. The honey coloured magnificent fort is really unique and huge well known for its artistic style, blending of stunning Rajput architecture with both Hindu and Muslim elements.

I really like this title too! It fits so well to this image!
TFS - congrats,

Curious place, curious scene.
I like POV and composition.

Salam Abmdsudi.Another contemplative scene with soft light, gentle colours and evocative foreground shapes and human presence. I like the pun in your title. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Une composition intéressante jouant de belle façon avec le contraste ombre et lumière et exploitant bien les deux personnes contemplatives.

Il y du peintre à travers vos compositions, et quel peintre/photographe !
Une image d'une grande qualité artistique.

They have composed themselves really nicely here, siting them on thirds works really well, and it makes me crane to see over the misty lake too, and its intriguing that we can just about make out the far side. The shapes carved into the balcony are great too, allowing light into what could have been a very dark part of the shot, and balancing the whole thing really nicely.
Thanks as always

I like to see this photo, nice view from Amer Fort to Maota Lake. The view is very well framed by the terrace opening. Excellent light & shadow play.
Very well done.

a very charming, timeless picture that draws the viewer into its mood. I like very much the mystery and the absolute tranquility. The architecture is very elegant and offers a great frame for the couple and the misty landscape ahead. I also like the shadows and the warm tones that differ from foreground to background in their intensity. There's also a fine sense of intimacy. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

beautifully captured scene with two resting people. The landscape visible through the arches is misty and delicate in colors and contrasts with the dark tones of the walls. Very wisely chosen POV has resulted in good depth and lovely composition.
People in the image have been placed slightly aside being important element of the picture but still leaving lots of space for the very interesting settings.

Great perspective in this pleasant scene from the Amber fort in Jaiphur. It seems to have been quite a misty day there. The couple adds just the right amount of life to this scene, without them it could have been quite ordinary and dull.
have a great sunday
kato (11630) 2014-03-02 9:23
You're capturing well this architecture and view by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the architecture with both Hindu and Muslim elements and the tasteful/calm view with the lake and hill. It's also effective for the contrast between the clear front and the blurring background.

interesting place and misty view in BG. Nice details of architecture. Good presentation.
Have a nice evening.
Schnappilic (9690) 2014-03-02 10:20
A splendid frame well managed. When I look seems to be a real painting. Good misty background. Congratulations!
Cricri (107977) 2014-03-02 11:02
Une image bien réaliser entre l'ombre et la lumière, la couleur chaude de l'architecture bien composer avec le couple, c'est un grand moment de silence et de mystère donner par la brume, belle réalisation

Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating composition with lovely windows, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
ACL1978 (7507) 2014-03-02 13:03
A perfect title for this, Abmdsudi - and brilliant light management to capture both the haze and the shadows of the inner temple here without losing any real detail. The two women here are in the perfect position, and clearly deep in thought. Your point about them - creating a sense of empty space despite filling their particular frame - is a good one. Thanks!
subhendu_bagchi (25869) 2014-03-02 20:04
it is a nice composition with those ladies watching the beauty of the outside landscape. Light is too contrasting but managed well. Nice POV chosen. I think the right side arch, if showed in full would be better, where you have the option upto 16mm... Though overall the result is really enjoyable and I like it a lot. Tfs.
Oceania (5038) 2014-03-03 6:22
I like the arched architecture as frames. The composition is outstanding. The contrast between the dark building and light outside is great. It's very artful.
marina7 (8055) 2014-03-03 11:13
lovely and atmospheric image! Yes, the light is difficult here but it brings in a special misty feel to the scene. The strong contrast makes it stand out too. Excellent work!
adramad (38820) 2014-03-03 12:27
Fascinating image with these majestic and beautiful arches, which are ideal in that almost backlit, with light tints of reddish stone, the two women also backlit, give a pretty vital touch to the image, the background with that haze seems like a reverie.
Very nice range of colors.
Splendid sharpness and good light.
Happy start to the week.
All the best.
eldancer1 (28953) 2014-03-03 14:12
I'm so jealous--you have some of the most beautiful and historic building in your area, a 100-year old building is considered historic and very old in Southern Nevada. I can sense the open space even with the hazy condition and I can just imagine how beautiful the vista is on a clear day. Awesome capture! Very well done, tfs.
macjake (57344) 2014-03-03 17:59
you know what my favorite part of the photo is? its the white light coming through the decorative pieces along the bottom right - thats a nice touch.
and i like the angled compo/pov you took this one at, it worked out so well.
beautiful piece of architecture with the large arches, nicely shot!
jhm (140563) 2014-03-04 2:50
Here see we clear the different culture between Europe and Asia, through the clothing of the women
We get a nice contrast picture with a nice look through with a foggy background
Very well composition, excellent presentation, TFS.
Have a nice day,
mkamionka (30864) 2014-03-04 6:27
fantastic picture so full of atmosphere. I like the arches which make a great framing for the scene. The misty view behind contributes to a melancholic mood. The elderly couple adds some more interest and goes well with the autumnal feeling.
krzychu30 (15498) 2014-03-07 0:35
I have to definitely to catch up with some of your magnificent pictures.
Your last photo was atmospheric,so what word would be suitable here?It´s simply amazing!
This strong contrast and division between FG and BG.The mist in the distance brings here something magical to the scene,some kind of dreamy and relaxing mood.
Well done Abmdsudi!
My Best regards

Interesting frame-within-a-frame with lovely countryside by the lake discernable in the background. Well seen and rendered.
adores (38120) 2014-03-29 14:04
A nice scene! I can easily see the atmosphere of India, here: the architecture, the haze in the air, the birds flying and a couple calmly resting on the corner. Well seen!
