[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The minaret of this mosque has many holes in it where pigeons and birds make their home. Serangaputnam is a beautiful historical city with rivers and lush green trees. It is famous for its most celebrated son Tipu Sultan who died fighting the British. The mosque is well preserved as well as the Hindu temple but the fort itself is in ruins. Thanks for visiting. I have done some PP work on this photo.

hi Muhammad

I know the excitement when a flock of birds fly over you in close range and the cluster of arrangement is simply very good subject for shooting.

You included very nicely the mosque architecture, even though I find the tilt of the building due to optical distortion which you can fix by correction inpp work.

I really like the birds.

tfs, bill
