The City Palace, Jaipur:
The residence of the present Maharajah of Jaipur, Jai Singh.
The City Palace presents a delightful blend of Mughal and traditional Rajasthani architecture,the Palace sprawls over one-seventh of the area in the walled city. It
houses the Chandra Mahal, Shri Govind Dev Temple and the City Palace Museum.
The Museum of the Maharajah of Jaipur has a fabulous collection of robes and saris in cotton and silk with gold lattice work. The City Palace houses a collection of paintings also in the painting gallery and of course a collection of arms and ammunitions in the ammunition gallery.
The flags flying at the top of the palace represents the message that the King is in his residence currently.
Increased contrast and sharpened a bit. Didnt work on the sky as I thought a blue sky will not blend with this salmon red structure.
Thanks for visiting.

Nice pic, Vikram! The Palace is beautiful and impressive! Great colours, although some overexposition on top. A good work, anyway. Congratulations, my friend! Greetings from Rio! Miguel.

an exceptional beautiful view on the place with a good pespective, everything very fine detailled and pleasant to include the man to scale this out.
Maybe cutting out the red border can benefit the shot still, if you allow I will give it a try tomorrow.

One look, and I was pretty sure that the lower red platform should go out. Maybe you can start with the end of the pillar.
The intricate details of the windows of the palace are so clear, and thats a great take. The solitary man adds value to the pic.
While commenting on someone else's pic once, I remember writing that I wished he had the keys to a nearby parked vehicle that came in the way of a beautiful shot. I wish the same here as well... But again, if only you did have the keys to that those vehicles, you could have moved them... haha!

Wonderful architecture and colours! A bit overexposed on the upper part as you said but the whole exposure is acceptable.
Thank you for sharing.
