Steps Through Time

(ISO 80, f/3.3, Shutter Speed 1/160 sec)


Location : Steps of Step Well in Boondi. Focus in on the third carving from right.

I don’t like the overexposure on left part of pic, but they add a contrast with right part. The pattern and shadow below it are enhanced by the sun light directly falling on the carved steps which are designed in exquisite way.

Post Processing : Cropped from Bottom, Contrast increase

I don't know what to say...COuld feel the footprints of a new queen as she stepped inside...could hear the careless ghungroo...felt the silent witness of the chambermaids walking behind the queen...felt the sudden silence as time washed away the sounds...felt the lady of fire burn into ashes and glide away as the tears settled on the steps...forever....

Wow...

You are right - the overexposure on the left is distracting.

Interesting composition though.

This is very very good. I miss not having my own computer(s). Can't play around with wallpapers. :(

This pic reminded me of the old trains kept at the Rail museum in Delhi! :D
I liked that contrast between the bright light and the cool looking stone.
