The Jantar Mantar is one of five similar astronomical observatories in India built by Jai Singh II of Jaipur in the 1700s. Interestingly enough, this old world architectural beauty stands out starkly amidst modern day new office buildings that encircle it in New Delhi. Its one of the things I love about Delhi - the old existing with the new.

An interesting graphical shot with superb cropping and composition. Perfectly seen and cropped with strong visual effect supported by great color contrast. Well done! TFS.

This is a 'strong' photograph. The sharpness and contrast is optimum and appropriate. The dark tones are well saturated.
The contrast of brick red against white was a good idea.
The composition is wonderful - helped by your POV and your angular cropp.
Thanks for sharing.

A fabulous shot. Looking at the thumbnail I thought I was looking an artwork or a ceiling where the white and grey parts here was the sky. Nice graphical details and a very good presentation. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling
