I always wanted to visit the Taj early to catch the magic of the morning sun. And this time I did. I had to wait at my vantage point for a long time to find the frame bereft of people before tripping the shutter. The patterns in the fg leading to the Taj made the shot for me. Of course, in addition to the wonderful light.

Hi Pushpinder,
A fine presentation of the Taj Mahal. An unusual one, very peaceful and such a soft ambient created by the early morning atmosphere.
Nice warm lighting.
A very complimenting frame.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello Push

I have often wondered if anyone could ever get an image of the Taj without tourist all over the place. You image shows the fewest I have ever seen. Using the patterned grown created a wonderful capture. I would recommend a clean of the sensor....as I can see many spots on your image in the sky. still a nice shot


Hi Pushpinder
magical and beautiful. the Taj Mahal is an outstanding work of architecture and art. fine capture at poor light conditions. good handling of exposure.

Hi Pshpinder,
a spectacular shot - well worth the wait

Hello Pushpinder, I agree that the fg patterns are an excellent way of leading our eyes to the iconic Taj Mahal.
I am glad that you waited patiently for the people to disappear,the scene would have lost its impact if there had been crowds milling around.
Good work.
Regards Jean.

For the first time I contemplate this extraordinary monument of human art.
Only he, the Taj Mahal, and my contemplative.
And the mist is the veil of mystery to guard it.

Hi Pushpinder...very nice shot of this fantastic place..nicely composed with excellent focus and tones.


Hi Pushpinder, I have always been a fan of either early morning or late afternoon light. It just changes the mood completely. The few people are not a problem at this distance,its a rare pov too. Usually off to one corner when we see it. Fiona

bonjour Pushpinder

bonne journée
