[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Udaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan, is known as the City of Lakes as it is surrounded by a number of man made lakes. Udaipur was founded in 1559. It is a very popular destination for foreign and local tourists. It is relatively clean and free of trinket sellers that pester you in any other major Indian city.

The photo shows the sunset over lake Pichola with the foothills of Aravalli range in the background. The island structure on the lake is Jag Mandir, a old palace from Shah Jahan’s (of Taj Mahal) times. It is a world famous hotel these days.

As most Udaipurans will remind you endlessly, Udaipur was the location for many scenes in the Bond film Octopussy

Hi Sunil,
A beautiful cast in this landscape shot. Good use of the 'red' hour with artificial lighting already in use. I like the interesting POV. The soft and peaceful atmosphere are giving impact to the presentation.
My best regards,

Hi Sunil

Well it only took me 15 minutes to wait for this one image to download! It's kind of hard to critique a blank rectangle! Anyway I like the pink sunset colors in the sky & the reflections. You can see the smoke in the air. Pristine Canada, it isn't! Well composed with good shadow detail. Have a fantastic week!
