India - 1 - The Taj by MalcomX India - 1 - The Taj by MalcomX
As promised, I finally present to you the first of my india series, unforunately the "Right way to do Wrong" will have to wait, I think the Taj is a tad more important. Anyway this is a 5 shot HDR that survived the Photo Lab's destruction of a few rolls of my film including Taj photos.

Taken at dawn with the sunrise light glistening off the white marble, reflecting in pink off the marble tiles courtesy of night rain.

Love the pic, wish I had more non-destroyed pictures, I was genuinely cut by their destruction.

5 shot HDR on velvia 100 on my 17-40mm f/4L

enjoy, larger view through DL link

How true that is!
I thought the contrast between your Taj Mahal pic and the one of an Indian street scene showed the difference between the privileged few and the impoverished masses quite beautifully.

Love this image of the Taj. I was there myself this year, how did you get in so early with no one else about???

MalcomX Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2008
I got there really early to catch the sunrise when there were very few people. If you look carefully to the right of the photo you can just make out a few people on the way to the Taj.
