A personal view of Taj Mahal.
Given that this must be one of the most photographed buildings in the world, it is difficult to get a POV that has not been done before.

The size of the people gives an indication of the size of the Taj.

Kudos for coming up with a perspective that is not often seen - and thanks for providing the (many) sightseers in your shot. Not only does it lend a good sense of perspective, it makes it clear just how many people must visit this landmark.

(Sorry, out of smiles!)

Hello Sunil,

Difficult indeed to get an original shot, knowing the restrictions involved. Cameras prohibited from the beginning of the fountains if I am not mistaking.

Cool idea the tight framing and composition. Tourists looks like rows of ants going both ways from the Taj.

Looking at it, although I might have opted to inverse the location of the tree, by putting it to your right to mask the empty space instand of the Taj ( or if you prefer a few steps to your left to have the tree to your right ) Just an idea. Not sure it was possible of course.

You're right Sunil i have yet to see something different than the usual 'down the middle alley ' shot or a left or right side views with a wife ,kids or simply a crowd in the FG , from across the river at dusk at dawn ,sun in or out ,nevertheless there is hardly any variation as everyone makes generally the same photos , here is a fresh and different point of vew which is valuable in my opinion , the light blue tint of the sky framing the building enhances the texture of the marble beautifully , frankly i like this shot, tfs,
