[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taj Mahal is as close to perfection as one would ever get. This is one of the few places where it lives up to all the hype and clichés. To stand in front of this building is an awesome experience. The white marble changes color with the available light. At midday it is pure white. Under cloudy skies the building turns slightly gray. In the evening light it gives out a golden hue.

This photo, taken from the western end of the garden, shows the Taj in the evening light. This must be one of the most photographed places in the world and I tried to find a POV that is not very common.

Hello Sunil, yes indeed that's a fantastic architecture, good pov and a fine quality shot, well done!


Ciao Sunil

nice view from this side of the Taj Mahal!
Gradually, I'm seeing all sides and angles
this popular icon of India!
I've read a little history of this palace and
light illuminates when the walls. Beautiful!
Congratulations on record, and tasteful!
