Another famous historical gate. View through entry gate to Humayun’s Tomb.
Tomb of Humayun is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun located in East Delhi, India, close to Delhi’s Old Fort.
The tomb was commissioned by Humayun's wife Hamida Banu Begum in year 1562, and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyath, a Persian architect.
It was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It was also the first structure to use red sandstone at such a scale.
The tomb was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in year 1993, and since then has undergone extensive restoration work, which is still underway.

I like the arch shape pic. However contrast on the faces of the people is a little harsh.

A well framed shot of this very lively scene complemented by the most beautiful architecture. So many things of going on to attract the viewer's attention. Rich saturated tones and very good clarity.

J'aime beaucoup l'effet très pictural de cette composition. J'aime aussi l'effet de profondeur qu'apporte cette superbe porte. Les couleurs sont un brin trop saturées.

Third and hope not the last of your "under the arch" series, Miro.
Yet, I find this a beautiful and an impressive shot.
Details on the facade of the monument, with its red and baige colors is an intriguing sight and well collected.
People around made this photo extra-vivid scene.

interesting series with the gates in Delhi. Nice view in BG. Good perspective and composition. Effect of HDR is strong, faces are a bit red. Great trip you had.
Have a nice evening.

I'm loving this series of arches, each one with a fresh appeal. This one having the chocolate colored frame puts a new twist on the otherwise vibrant and colorful detail we see on the other side, the contrast is superb. The couple in the middle smiling brightly sets a wonderfully pleasing atmosphere, bright and cheerful, just like the picture itself! Exquisite architecture, and it leaves me wanting to see more. Beautifully taken and presented once again. Have a great day ahead. All the best.

I see you are hooked to the natural arched framing for the time being and why not...it adds such a fine dimension to the image, focusing the gaze of the viewer on the subject so effectively. Excellent capture of the beauty of Mughal architecture on Humayun's Tomb. Great shot, I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.

One the most splendid in Agra after the Taj Mahal ... fabulous frame, this wonderful monument here enjoyed a nice POV, with the archway, as part of the splendid facade, the presence of people with their colorful and naturally gives a good vital touch to the picture.
Magnificent as this range of vivid colors.
Great management of both the brightness and the good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.
All the best.
