Taj Mahal: A new perspective (picture #3): Taj at Sunset

Taj is huge, and also presents a high visual contrast in terms of color & light. This makes it very difficult to capture the scene the way a human eye sees it. In this series I am attempting to look at the majestic monument with a human perspective.

 

In this picture we see the Taj at Sunset from close proximity. It is the golden hour. The shadows are darker while the colors are warm. There is a big crowed, but the people are too small to be a bother. I was lucky to not have any one closer to me in this shot.

 

I used the Sigma 35mm Art lens. 35mm is not wideangle for a monument of this enormity, but it provides a good perspective narrowing down just to the subject.
