[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jama Masjid of Delhi, is the principal mosque of Old Delhi in India. Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal, and completed in the year 1656 AD, it is the largest and best-known mosque in India. It lies at the origin of a very busy central street of Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk.

A very impressive building made out of red sandstone. Here is a photo of the arches in the main prayer area. I made a series of shots here playing with the available light. I liked this one because of the over-exposed outer wall gave it a different character.

Hi, Sunil. I like the abstract design created by the light, texture and the arches with warm colors of the redsandstone. The POV is appropriate for this photo. Cheers and TFS.

Sunil , i am not so sure that the overexposed wall is helping this composition , i am not so sure that the outside frame matches or enhances either , you may try to convince me that you wanted the wall to be like this to give it some character , perhaps if i try harder i may sense that this has a fine painting-like texture perhaps i might go for this idea yet ... sorry my friend that is what i think about this one ,you can do much better ,

Ciao Sunil

The architecture here is wonderful,
more what happened to the colors?
I do not know if you had at this time in natural light
subject, the more the left column is undefined ....
I agree with the colors that the wall may have, the more this well
pulled. Careful ...

Hi Sunil,
love the overall warm colour tone. Including the overexposed bit was a good idea, but perhaps you could have reduced it just a bit with some PP work. I like the composition a alot as you've got so many walls, archs, pillars and doorways with this angle.
