Taj Mahal: Reflected

My take on one of the most famous views in the world:

Taj Mahal Reflected, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India

All these were taken on our early morning visit to the Taj when the crowds were less, the waters were still and the light was changing rapidly.

    Lovely concept with great reflections. I also really like the changes in light, telling a story of when you took it. My favourites are the second and third images work best as the parts jutting out the water seem to conflict less.

    Very nice series, Mark. The first image is a stunner.
    I love the soft tones in the first 3 images, but not so much the golden tones in the last few. That’s purely a personal thing as I love soft light. Wish we got it in Melbourne.

      It was about 7am – and the tourists were all to my right and left or behind me taking/waiting to take photos 😉

      Thanks Laura….it’s interesting because others prefer the more subtle tones of the first three, but I just love the way the light changes are reflected in the building.

        I find it interesting how different people respond to photos I do as well. Some I think are good I don’t get much feedback and then there are the ones I don’t like as well and people love them. And then there’s everything in between. Just goes to show how incredibly HARD it is to make an image that resonates with most everyone. Thanks for sharing your journey in India. I love it!

    These are beautiful Mark. Interesting comments about the light too; I prefer the soft light of the first images, maybe because it resonates better with the romance of the place?
    Beautifully done though – and I wish I could persuade hubby to get up at 7.00am when we’re on holiday! 🙂

      Thanks Noeline….on a tour like this one you have no choice but to get up early….most of it is pretty regimented with some free time built in.
