The street is BBD Baag.
This is the most important area of Kolkata as most of the Government offices are situated here.
Naturally, the thoroughfare remains crowded throughout the day.
To enjoy the beauty of the place, early morning is 'the' time.
The dome-roofed building is the General Post Office.

That is one impressive post office, and the depth afforded by the view down this street is really excellent. The mist gives an eerie feel to this place which should be packed, but isnt. I agree, early morning is definitely the time to visit a city centre, and I always try to time urban photo sessions that way too. Its paid off handsomely here, this is a fantastic result.
All the best

Very nice photo with great clarity and nice perspective of the street. These are rare moments when the street in a big city is empty.

Wow! my own city appears so neat and clean. I appreciate the hardship you undertook to get up early and get this shot to share in TE. I love the GPO building bathed in the soft morning sun, the row of lamp posts and the row of trees. Nice soft colors, and sharpness. My God everything looks so prim! Well taken!!

You have captured this beautiful post office building from superb perspective in excellent warm light. I'm very surprised to see the road without traffic. I know Kolkata only with busy traffic on the roads. Well done.

A fabulous composition and the extensive depth & long perspective taken on a quiet morning, I am amazed at details that you have got right throughout the shot which is subtly exposed. Brilliant splash of warm lights on the imposing buildings, soft colours and clean light blues sky definitely turn this as one of your best shots. The slight mist cliches the shot so pleasantly. Great work, Congrats

Hi Alekhya, What a pretty morning view of this street. Excellent composition and POV. The morning fog still wondering in the air. Wonderful warm colours and great depth. The early sunshine touches the walls of thiese amazing government buildings, I like the dome shape tops constructions. The street lamps on the left side framed the trees on the opposite side so perfectly. Thank very much

What a beautiful street Alekhya, Victorian architecture clearly visible, the dome looks like a lot the city hall of Belfast, clean place, a picture taken at early morning, bright colors and high definition, all the best, warm regards

a magnificent, impressive building and a very nice
morning mood. There are very few people on the street. A well-chosen time for the image.
Very nicely captured!
All the best

This reminds of Washington D. C. This photo has great perspective provided by the empty street. The early morning sun casts pleasant hues and shadows on the buildings. A very pleasant photo and a great addition to TE, TFS!

I think this is my first time to your gallery?
I love seeing these everyday life photos from India, hope to see more and more of them.
and as you mentioned, its so strange to see Indian streets so bare and empty! great idea to come here at this hour.
love the blues and white, and the dome.

beautiful view here once again. A bit over exposed, that seems to me, but I liked the composition a lot. Like the calmness of such a busy area at morning which has no impression of the hazard which comes some hours latter. Overall a nice one. Tfs.
