The silhouetted Umaid Bhawan Palace as seen from Meherangarh Fort in Jodhpur, taken in early morning when one of the most beautiful part of the day occurs.
A blissful moment and I really enjoy the gradual changes in lighting that occur as the sun rises above allowing nature to run its course.

A very good image showing the palace in the background. I like the flying bird. It attracted my eye directly. Very good picture. Thanks for sharing.

wow! A nice presentation of UBP in a nice dramatic manner... Great to see those layers. Great light. Enjoyed the haze and the palace in semi-silhouetted form. Excellent shot. Namaste & Tfs.

great the sepia tones of the scene with the Umaid Bhawan Palace to be seen on the backdrop hill between the foggy atmosphere.I like the defferent colour tints of the image as the excellent light and colour management of it.Well done.

J'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère qui se dégage de cette composition. J'aime ce brouillard de pollution qui fait paraître le temple comme en ombres chinoises.

A scene that could be from any time in the past 1000 years, the mist here has created a timeless feel to the place, and the silhouette of the fort seems to tower over the town, as no doubt it has for so long. And like all through that time, it makes such an impressive break on the horizon and impresses so much. The level of detail in the towers and dome are visible even in silhouette, speaking that this is a place of great importance. Beautiful composition too, with the fort on thirds like this. The single lonely bird is a very nice inclusion.
Thanks as always

Bonsoir, cher Abmdsudi,
Ces écharpes de brume enveloppant le monument créent une beauté toute particulière.
Le vol d'un oiseau vient contribuer à enrichir cette composition d'une beauté certaine.

this is a magical image of a fine, deep and evocative scenery, the hour when the first light of the day dispels the shadows and details are gradually revealed through the mist. There's a very fine depiction of the mysterious mood and sepia hues that gradually get lighter but don't fade before they define the exquisite palace in the distance. There's great balance in your frame and it's amazing how a small detail like a passing bird can convey the awakening of the city. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

A very graphical shot, the palace looks like a ghost building, fantastic layers with different depth, compliments

La lumière du matin et la brume créent une atmosphère très particulière et des couleurs qui s'estompent du premier plan à l'arrière-plan. Belle photo très bien composée.
willperrett (6178) 2014-03-12 1:52
Beautiful aerial perspective here. I'm so glad you are an early riser! The composition too is out of the top drawer. I guess this is a crop, judging by the aspect ratio?
saxo042 (36918) 2014-03-12 2:46
A beautiful silhouette of the buildings that provide a good skyline. The haze provide a good effect by gradually soften the colours of the different layers. A very interesting picture.
kato (11630) 2014-03-12 3:10
You're capturing well tjos cityscape by a good angle and tateful tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Umaid Bhawan Palace and a lot of houses in early morning. It draws out well a mysterious atmosphere and the lighting effect which the sun rises. And, it's also effective for the gradiation of silhouette.

Une heure matinale, brumeuse qui donne une atmosphère particulière aux paysage et la silhouette du temple, le top avec le vol de l'oiseau
adramad (35591) 2014-03-12 8:32
Fantastic image, with all components of the same scale silhouetted in a beautiful first three levels of silhouettes of houses and trees, to crown the hill, the magnificent palace splendid silhouette.
Ideal splashes of color in a very homogeneous tones, like a watercolor.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Have a good evening.
All the best.

A superb composition with very attractive layers of varying degrees of early morning haze. The dome and towers of the palace create fine silhouettes against the pink sky. Towards the right side of the photo you managed to include a large bird in a perfect place. This was probably not a very easily exposed photo but you captured the fine natural sepia tones beautifully.

TFS - congrats,

This scene is elegant simplicity. I like the different earth-colored layers, each one getting lighter as we move from the foreground into the distance. The silhouette of the palace is beautiful, and perfectly-placed in the frame. That lone bird really adds that extra special something to complete a great view.
mkamionka (29375) 2014-03-14 15:28
I like very much the multiple layers of the composition which are well emphasized by the decreased saturation. The palace provided a wonderful silhouette to top up the scene. Very atmospheric photo, excellent work!
Have a great weekend,

Helo dear Abmdsudi
Oooh I love these dusky pink tones, this really is my favourite time of day. The mist and heat haze have worked their magic, turning this from a beautiful low light shot into a masterpiece of atmosphere and light. Well done, stunning.
siudzi (32639) 2014-03-16 1:29
Wow! What a beautiful presentation full of outstanding golden tones and lights! The place looks simply magical and extremely attractive. Very well managed image. I like it a lot! TFS.

Interesting grad brown colours
I don't know if its mist or pollution
macjake (52830) 2014-03-29 10:28
If I could pick only 1 city to see in India it would be Jodhpur!
One day i'll get here.
sweet looking view of the city with the silhouette.
tranquil mood, soothing and relaxing. wonderful views.
josepmarin (57571) 2014-04-04 2:54
I love the wonderful foggy atmosphere that you offers us in this shot.
The array of grey hues on the landscape, the silhouette of the fantastic architecture of the Palace in background, and the flying bird, create a very attractive composition, elegantly executed, with a perfect management of the exposure.
A great work.
tatadalou (5641) 2014-04-27 8:51
Nice view of the Palace from a high POV. The composition is well balanced, with the Palace well placed in the left top corner The various nuances of grey makes a peaceful shot when the birds adds a piece of life.
