This one has been shot as I ake a little break from lights this weekend and visited Jantar mantar instead, or the observatory built in earlier times in the heart of Delhi. It is characterised by red architecture and is rather pleasing to the eye.
Jantar Mantar is in the modern city of New Delhi, Delhi. It consists of a collection of architectural astronomy instruments, built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, for his own use, from 1724 onwards. The primary purpose of the observatory was to compile astronomical tables, and to predict the times and movements of the sun, moon and planets. Some of these purposes nowadays would be classified as astrology.
Jai Singh later had another similar observatory, now known by the same name, built for him at Jaipur.
Today the observatory is mainly a tourist attraction, and is significant in the history of astronomy.

This is my first visit to your gallery. You have lots excellent shots, really good at seeing the colours, light, shade and the architectural forms. Wonderful compositions throughout.
Thanks for sharing. Love to see plenty more.
P/s Thanks for your kind comments on my photos
oreyd (437) 2008-03-30 22:24
great composition and geometry
jjcordier (77834) 2008-03-30 22:43
Modeste astronome amateur, j'ai été très intéressé par ta note. J'aime aussi beaucoup ta composition, graphique et colorée (j'aurais peut-être coupé un peu la parte droite pour supprimer la porte et une partie de la zone très lumineuse...mais je ne suis pas absolument sûr de moi?)
Csilla (1782) 2008-03-30 22:59
I like your photo for simplicity, and I like the geometry lines of the building detail, the vivid red color and the framing as well.
Thanks for sharing!
Matthew-Watt (5956) 2008-03-30 23:04
Something different from you, but no less pleasing, it looks very good. It reminds me of Luke Skywalker's house from Star Wars IV, which was filmed in Tunisia. The red colour is very striking, and is well balanced by the softer sandy tones and some shadow. I like how you often show a small portion of a larger scene, so we can look at more detail and get a more artistic angle of the subject. It always works well for you. Congratulations and keep them coming!
burGu (4840) 2008-03-30 23:09
I like your point of view from top to down.
Graphism, colors and light entering from right corner are great.
edytungkal (4551) 2008-03-30 23:40
A stunning colours on this simple place, your composition make it perfect and the tight white border work well on this kind of picture. I call it simple but beauty, well done,tfs.
smarcell (19963) 2008-03-31 0:42
An excellent composition, clean and well organized.
The orange looks a bot too strong. Naybe the original was strong too, I don't know. Very eye cathcing anyway.
Maybe some extra subject in the picture (like a vase of differenc color, for example) would have better balanced the colors. But one gets what is available, of course !

Hello Aadiil! Wonderful place. Amazing lightness and colors. Very good point of view, very good perspective. Mysterious effect. Good luck!
degani (2975) 2008-03-31 0:54
Great composition of lines and colours, as oly you can do. This is a very nice picture, bravo
ErikSven (272) 2008-03-31 0:55
Captivating graphic presentation of this urban scenery. Not only the lines and shapes are interesting, but also the colours, that convey an intense atmosphere: we can almost "feel" the opposition between the warmth of the sunny areas and the freshness of the shady areas.
TFS & kind regards,
sayanwithsenice (758) 2008-03-31 1:31
AMzing shot of the stairs!! The framing has been really spectacular!! I really like the features and the clors captured by you!! Great ideas and composition and superbly presented!!GREAT WORK!! THANKS FOR SHARING AND KEEP POSTING!!!
HAVE A SUPERB DAY,
japiey (10163) 2008-03-31 1:53
Good frame to show the deep essence of the subject.
Is this a Rajput architecture, or the reflections of Mogul Architecture?
Into somewhere, to the paths of LIGHT that waits you, my dear friend :)
cherryripe (21033) 2008-03-31 2:04
Orange is a really fashionable colour at the moment. We've even just bought some orange cushions for our sofas so naturally I like the colour here. I like the simplicity of your composition playing nicely with the curves, angles and shadows.
kschanna (6) 2008-03-31 3:44
Your colors always entice us on TrekEarth. The colors are uniquely Indian and you have added a very interesting note too. The composition is great, the stairs lead the eye into the arch, brilliant.
jusninasirun (17162) 2008-03-31 4:30
Hello aadil. Simple perspective in warm color here. Interesting glow from above making the image very graphical in presentation. Regards. Jusni
saigon (6443) 2008-03-31 4:39
insolite cette image de ces escaliers!
Morac (27717) 2008-03-31 4:52
Excel graphics in this catch.
The POV in diving is superb. Very beautiful harmony in the colors.
Cheer…. I like much.
mehmetemin (7231) 2008-03-31 5:09
beautiful composition....beautiful colours and contrast.
lestans (17130) 2008-03-31 6:17
You make me remember the observatory I saw in Jaipur! I visited it and I have not been able to shot a decent picture there: too difficult!
In this one of your is possible to recognize an osservatory at once, and light and colors are so nice!
Thank you for sharing!

just a good angle for that simple view in good light to add a lot of interest. The stairway and the walls have a superb impression. Wonderful textures and light.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
molla (7129) 2008-04-01 2:49
I lreally like your way of modeling architecturalitems with light and colors.
In a way very modernistic but in the same way close to renaissance masters.
alaindiveu (210) 2008-04-01 3:00
One more excellent picture
Beautiful graphism and colors. I like very much your style.
pasternak (15181) 2008-04-01 3:13

pastadog (13111) 2008-04-01 5:56
Hi Aadiil - superb color and lights, and a very strong POV to emphasize these attractive shapes... TFS, Daniel
mikhalych (1319) 2008-04-01 7:04
Yes, it is a break from lights and shadows and a dive into colors and shapes. Perfect composition with those archways forming a triangle.
The picture I'd like to see on my wall :)
jafadabret (56501) 2008-04-01 9:10
Cette photo me fascine par la beauté des formes et des couleurs. J'aime les courbes des arches et les lignes de l'escalier. C'est une photo que j'aurais aimé faire.
Du très beau travail.
Wanda1 (15000) 2008-04-01 22:15
The view from above is well used for this great shot. I love the reds and beiges, and the segment of architecture which you have chosen with the stairs leading into the archway is nicely done. Great work!
gildasjan (41934) 2008-04-02 0:29

belle photo de cette partie de batiment orange, abimée, usée, mais jolie a regarder, très géométrique.
Bien vu, bien pris.
marietom (34609) 2008-04-03 9:19
Voilà que tu te mets au graphisme, et de la plus belle manière qui soit, quelle merveille de composition !
Les couleurs me plaisent.
saxo042 (37596) 2008-04-03 11:19
A remarkable composition, this looks like those pictures of endless stairs you never find out how to look at...
Really excellent colours, a very fine picture.
Greetings from Gothenburg
captainsgirl (3448) 2008-04-03 15:48

Dear Aadiil Jamal!
Very nice colors.
Aline_N (3175) 2008-08-13 0:32
First, thank you for the nice comment your wrote on my picture of the Jardins Citroën.
I was curious to see who wrote me such comment, and I have to say the discovery of your collection is a very nice thing which illuminates my morning.
Obviously, silhouettes in perspective is one of your favorite subject, and the way you are able to picture it makes myself very modest.
All your portfolio is full of beauties, as this one.
I add your name in my favorite list, in order to remind me sometimes to take a look on your work.
dareco (17134) 2008-10-17 2:20
A very artistic image and I love the very vibrant colors! Nice pov and interesting textures. TFS
loves_summer (1310) 2009-01-11 20:54
I love your architecture shots! The are always so full of colour and taken from unconventional perspectives...this makes them very unique and eye-catching. In this one, I like that you have captured three archways along with this wonderful staircase. There is a symmetry to this, but also something original about it. The colours and sharpness are great and I like the choice of thick frame.
Thanks for sharing!
OLF (4017) 2009-01-24 1:38
I also enjoy seeing your gallery, very graphical photographs!
I like a lot of them, here i like the graphism from the pov and the colors.
Very well done.
Angshu (56406) 2009-03-19 21:12
Your pictures from JM makes me yearn to go again...but no time! You create such wonderful compositions from this place, even though this place has a lot to offer for a photographer. Excellent!
Charo (51210) 2009-07-28 14:10
I love the view is magnificent. An image with excellent graphics and geometry and with a wonderful color.
