Shot at Maidan.
The Maidan or ‘Large Field’ is in fact an open space in front of the Fort William of Kolkata. The locals call it “Garher Maath” (Field of the fort).
I liked the huge tree, soft early-morning light, the Victoria Memorial and of course the atmosphere.
Winter is coming.

Beautiful light and gorgeous colours.
The details and sharpness of the tree with the light on one side of the trunk, the clearing beneath the umbrella, the haze of the Victoria Memorial in the background make for a beautiful photograph.
Also like your focus on the Victoria, since I am posting photographs on the subject at this time.
Thanks for sharing, Alekhya.

Excellent composition and image. I love how the wonderful giant tree takes up the whole picture and nicely leads. Those tiny figures and the dome in the distance really add to a sense of scale and depth giving good focal points. This is very nicely done, great dof, lovely colours & shadows and shades, benefitted much from subtle morning light - the best time to shoot landscape. I feel that glimpse of mist and touch of autumnal colours realy lifted to shot to higher plain. Fabulous !! tfs

Thnak you for having visited my photo. Here, I like the framing with this large tree as the distance on the grass gives deepnes leading the eye to the dome in the distance. The people in the park add life and perspective.

Hello Alekhya - I only saw the brilliance of this composition once I has opened up the thumb nail. I just love the shot with the tree almost filling the frame and the distant view of Kolkata hazy in pink light. The people out and about enjoying the park is another fabulous detail. Creative and well managed this is a shot I won't forget. Have a lovely weekend Rosemary

This is ver well composed photo with lovely light and good DOF. I love how the huge tree seems to envelope everything else. Well seen and rendered. (Again, this reminds me of the Mall of Washington D.C., an open space surrounded by monumental buildings.)

aare wah! What a nice composition it is. Simple but has a nice calm and serene environment in it. Light is balanced and very good depth. I love your umbrella. Very well presented. Tfs.

Imoresive tree, a kind of ficus? to frame well the field full of live and people }
Of course like the view at the back of the white Memorial
Soft light produces a dreamy atmosphere

well chosen the POV as we can see the large field under the branches of the huge tree.The dome of the building on the backdrop works a an excellent charmy optical element of the image.
