The reflecting pool and tourist crowds, all just to see this amazing monument.
Despite seeing countless pictures and images of this place, I was still in awe to finally see it in person. Truly spectacular.
The photo is indeed "flipped", as many of you probably have guessed. Once I took a look at it upside down in-camera, I really liked how the dirt and debris at the bottom of the reflecting pool added some effects to the "sky". So I recomposed with the reflection in mind, fired off a few more shots, and this is what turned out.
