    Default Minaret!

    This is one of the Minarets of Taj Mahal taken at sunset. I had taken this in 2003 using an Olympus Camadia! For processing, i decided to blur the crowd instead of trying to clone them... also used multiple adjustment layers and masks for saturation, levels and curve. Also used Topaz Adjust/HDR settings for the sky. Hope you like it...

    Your work really paid off! The sky is beautiful and the light is very nice. Blurring the people was a great idea!

    Indranil, I like this. The blurred people really makes the scene - chaos below and the minaret steady and calm. Nice work

    A nice composition with the Minaret taking center stage! The blurred people was a great idea!! The simplicity of the image is appealing, and the sky is lovely. I'd like to see the minaret itself a bit bolder--brighter and more contrasty. Just a thought.

    Beautiful and creative, composition, Indranil! Wonderful light on the tower. I also love the blur on the people. Each element works so well together - Excellent artistic thinking, and I could see this one being published for sure!
