[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the main court at the Agra Fort. Agra Fort is the place where many of the great Mughal Emperors, Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb lived, and governed their empires.

It was Akbar, considered to be the greatest of them all, that built the Agra Fort to its glory. His grandson, Shah Jahan – the builder of the Taj Mahal also lived here and was imprisoned in the fort for eight years till his death by his son Aurangzeb.

It is a magnificent place, full of history.

The large scale of this beautiful building is nicely set off by the detail in the arches. The repitition of thses arches adds to the effect. Nicely composed and well exposed.

Hi, Sunil. Nice POV to show the arches, architecture, light and shade. Good composition, colors and presentation. The ever present tourists are serving a good purpose by providing a scale to the photo. Cheers and TFS.
