    Default Taj revisted

    I went to the Taj Mahal for the 1st time in June, and we are all so used to the usual/standard shot of the building from the end of the fountain to showcase the symmetry. Decided to hunt for an alternative angle to do a bit of experimenting with perspectives

    Chanced upon this view before making my way up to the predestal of the building



    Abit of PP to clean up the spots on the lens, and a slight stepping up of exposure (shot RAW, stopped down 1 stop)

    This angle works for you folks? Thanks

    Yes, I liked the angle. Photo seems to be bit dull.

    Any more photos of Taj? Flickr or somewhere?

    One more comment,

    I would have liked more if this photo is with a Minar on the left.

    u mean another of the towers? I din try that but with 17-85 on 30D, that would probably mean that i would have to stand in front of the tower that's in front now... then the view of the taj would be obstructed...hmm...

    Yes, Minar = tall slender tower.

    other than what has already been said..color,exposure(which to a certain extend can be rectified with PP)

    i find that the overall picture not sharp..kinda i can't really put my finger on a point of sharpness..hmmm....maybe its my office monitor

    composition is good in my opinion...

    My personal opinion is that the sky is too much and too dull.
    If there are some nice clouds, it should complement the background.
    probably can do abit of the color correction to make it more saturated.

    Well ... just my 2 cents worth.

    You can try a polarizer filter the next time for the deep blue sky effect on this kind of shot. Nice angle too. There is a function to "flip" your picture that make thing appear from left on right if you need to make the minar appear on the left after you took the shoot.Seen it somewhere but cant remember anyone can help?
