Default Agra - Part 4 - Scenery, for a change

Presenting typical scenery around Agra, for a change from history and monuments.

Birds chirping and flying in clouds over trees at dusk.


A different mode of transport: Camel carts


Light cargo carrier:


Not sure if the fight is over that dress!


Greenery on the ground, mustard flowers in bloom:


Greenery in the sky:


Behind bars at this age!:


Family burden on head, at this age!:


Would appreciate comments.

Hi Raghu

An excellent seris of photos, you have done a great job. My faves are the last 3 photos, and in particular the last one of the little girl carrying the huge bundle of twigs - the composition, lighting, colours and expression are supperb.

All great pictures - such a variety of captivating subject matter! The little girl with the twigs & the birds at dusk are exceptional.

Raghu, I would love to see you crop out the background scenery at the top of your last shot to bring the focus to the two girls. The face of the central girl is absolutely brilliant.

Thank you Saly, I was wondering how to improve this photo. Here it is again, without the distraction:

Raghu - I would leave it uncropped. With a the bit of background that you have in the photo (ie the temples) it gives the shot more of a story and atmosphere.
