Climb up these broad flights of thirty three sandstone steps and be welcomed by the impressive elevated tower-like arched gateway that leads into Jama Mosque complex.
Shooting opportunity is immense and seems endless from this high vantage point, or just relax and people watch.

I remember climbing these streets 40 years ago. I can still recall the pain of walking barefoot on the burning hot stones inside the compound. I could have taken a lot more, and a lot better pictures if I had had a small digital camera in those days. I would still probably not have thought of this kind of composition, giving such strong prominence from such a low POV of a small group of people. You have reached a very much higher level of photo skills than I had in those days (and probably still today).

the upward point of view has been used in a masterful way and has offered a comprehensive and interesting view with fascinating perspective. Moreover, you have managed the light superbly capturing its power and warmth and keeping the rich quality of all the colours too. I love the vivid colours at the lower right side of the frame, the lady's smile and the sense of shifting movement below the strongly positioned antique mosque. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

I remember this place! And you have chosen the pov very well, to include these people in foreground, those sitting in the background and also the entrance to the mosque. A real photo of India, so colourful and full of life!

Hi dear Abmdsudi
What a striking POV, fantastic colours and wonderful perspective. You're so brave getting so close to your subjects. I'd be afraid they'd tell me to get lost. You have captured the essence of daily life here and a great sense of the culture and religion. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day.

great the contrast of the colours,the saturation of them as the beauty of the entrance of Jama Mosque with the faithfuls to sit on the sandstone steps chatting.
I like the creative perspective,the clarity of the image,as the excellent chosen POV.Well done.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Mosque complex with unique design and the sandstone. It's impressive that many worshippers are resting in front of this mosque as well as womens wearing the colorful/original costume.
adramad (39554) 2012-11-23 10:22
A superb composition with this POV well chosen, capturing the mosque in a bottom perspective, which raises its grand proportions, all these people on the steps, a touch very vital to the scene and the colorful saris is cheerful and beautiful with those bright colors.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend.

Bon choix du contre plongé pour bien en apprécier la mosquée dans les moindres détails, un endroit de détendre pour ces personnes, j'aime le fond bleu et les couleurs de la tenues de la dame bien mis sur le coin de la composition, belle réalisation

Zes, the shooting opportunities from Jama masjid are wonderful, when one is interested in architecture and even more to observe people there. interesting composition from the lower POV. Superb colours of Indian saree.
jemaflor (87453) 2012-11-24 4:51
Good visual impact with this pov and the colors of these clothes, interesting with architecture and people, well made.

Great show from Jama Masjid,Delhi.Very well composed with splendid colors and saturation.TFS.
mkamionka (31563) 2012-11-25 11:58
spectacular composition again. I like the combination of the splendid architecture and people photography. The woman in colorful clothes make a fantastic foreground, the stairs lead the eye further to the imposing structure on top.
shevchenko (18892) 2012-11-25 20:12
Good low angle shot to frame a mosque on the top, very nice an unique mosque in local style, costumes of foreground visitors add more colour to the view, distinct photo, good shoot.
siolaw (38292) 2012-11-25 22:45
The upwards POV gives a good sense of the Masjid's size and height with good compositional balance between monument and people.
Strong contrast and intense colours too!
bayno (18344) 2012-11-26 2:21
Beautiful low POV and the scene of daily life on the steps of the old mosque, perfect framing and lovely bright colors typical of Indian traditions, always excellent quality...
josepmarin (57839) 2012-12-02 8:50
the low-angle shot creates a good sensation of perspective of the steps towards the fantastic architecture of the gateway, which is outlined elegantly on the blue sky.
And people provide a great vitality to the scene, specially the women in foreground, with their dresses of vivid colors.
The image has a high quality and a good management of the field depth.
A good work.
