I've seen many pictures of the Taj Mahal but never this sharp. Great shot.

That's as nice as I've seen in a while. Great lighting and mood.

Thank you for viewing and your comments. I should have mentioned that this was caught as the sun was almost disappearing in the horizon, casting the beautiful pink glow on the marble. I deliberately kept the EV down a step or two to accentuate the effect. I am glad you liked this.

Yes, this is much better than the usual shots of the building.

Great shot Rahgu

The light is great and I like the angle. May I suggest boosting the saturation of the reds/pinks to further enhance the sky and reflection off the marble. And some blue for the left side sky. Only a suggestion, but I feel it would add to this already very nice shot.

Thank you for viewing. 1. I will try Lomitamike's suggestion and see how it comes out. 2. Yes, I notice there is a dust or water mark, but it doesn't go even if I clean the glass. May be it has got into the inside of the glass. I need to check how to remove it. 3. Water fountains are not there here because this photo was taken from the other side of Taj, from across the river Yamuna, not from the main gate side.
