Taj Mahal - at a different perspective

Here are some pics of Taj Mahal from some not so obvious angles. I have not seen many pictures of Taj Mahal with this perspective.

It was possible to take these pics only because I was using a wide angle lens (17-40mm F4.0L). Even then it was difficult to capture the entire central structure from the base of one of the minarates. I took two shots (3rd and 4th above) thinking I'll join them using Canon PhotoStitch. Unfortunately, Canon PhotoStitch refrused to even try to merge them saying the focal length is too small and it cannot do a smooth merge with the perspective at such a focal length.

I obtained great results stitching pictures with Hugin, an open source software, maybe you want to try it.

I was looking for pictures of Taj Mahal from different angles. And you have really photographed it differently.

Anyways, these are nice photos!

India is a real delight for travellers to visit. It awaits a visitor with a million amazing moments that finally become a treasured experience.
