I know, I know, you need your sun glasses. It was very bright out on the plaza around the Taj Mahal. And it really does have a different look up close. The marble is smooth and shiny, and perhaps slightly more white then in this photo. I actually darkened the middle section a bit to soften the glare. It is an amazing creation, but after about 15 minutes up this close, I had to rest my eyes.

Hello Steve, good POV and framing, the use of wide angle lens enhances the big size of this beautiful building. Beautiful colors, especially the hi-key. Well done!

Wow, what a photo. I see you corrected the distorted lines which makes the photo even more interesting. I also like the human elements which show us the dimension of this monument.

Great shot. Looking forward to getting a few shots of my own later this year.

Sure it is bright, but it is right and these brilliant highlight deliver a strong visual impact, impressive building relative to the tiny people and good contrast between the two main colors.
Have a nice day jY

Well it's an interesting and original POV on this fantastic architecture.
But I had to put my sun glasses.
