Sorry to hear about your DQ Alan. But as you say, at least you know where it came.

Hi, it was early in morning. ABout 7:30 from memory ( I could always check the EXIF I guess ). They reckon the sunset is cool in March-April. This was October. We also went back at night. It's far far far busier, I didnt think the light was anywhere as good.

You said you needed to up your game and then you go and pull this out of the hat! Puts us level on ribbons again (I enjoyed my week ahead!).

Well done though - Fantastic quality..

Nicely done. I have seen this photographed many times, but this one is one of my favorites. Nice pp. (voted earlier)

This is a real stunner. Congratulations on making a very familiar sight into a work of art.

Was here in '88. Incredible place. Gorgeously captured.

A very lovely and stunningly beautiful shot of this monument. Love the details of the Taj Mahal and it's twin reflected in the water. Great composition too for it adds visual interest that draws the eye in with the leading lines of the pathway that leads the eye straight up to your main focus. Just one little critique - I think if you moved down the pathways such that they appear to be emerging from the the bottom right corner and the bottom left corner the leading lines would be even more stronger and thus improve the visual impact of the photo even more.

Winner!! This is my choice. I know theirs no spot editing, but I try to critic everyone. Sky has a few spots, and has no depth. But I know you couldn't do anything. Amazing shot. Congrats in advanced.

MUMTAZ means great in Arabic. And she is there right?
02/14/2011 12:42:39 PM
Wow. Fabulous! Not sure what the black dots are in the sky... (birds? trash?) ... but I think I'd have cloned them out. (not voting)
02/14/2011 12:22:42 PM
the fact that the palace is a tiny bit off center really bothers me for some reason. still giving this an 8 though
02/14/2011 09:29:02 AM
An epic and iconic location. Well executed.
02/14/2011 07:18:31 AM
