The Journey Back Home

(ISO 100, f/4.0, Shutter Speed 1/500 sec)

Fresh out of my camera, shot in the interiors of Rajasthan near a place called Tijara (Alwar Dist.). Me and my friends were returning back to our Cab from the ruins of Tijara Fort at the top of a hill, when i saw this overloaded Jeep with Villagers returning back to their villages from the main town. With sun setting down as a backdrop and an overloaded Jeep with people, I couldn't afford to miss such a dramatic pic :).
Post Processing : Contrast increase, Flash was used to get the Jeep clearly in the photo.

Colored Symphony

Through The Arches Of Time

(ISO 200, f/8.0, Shutter Speed 1/160 sec)

Orchha, meaning a "hidden place", 18km southeast of Jhansi was the former capital of the Bundela dynasty. This shot shows the fa├žade of Raj Mahal inside Orchha Fort, whose construction was started by Raja Rudra Pratap, and completed by one of his successors, Madhukar Shah. The whole palace is marked with opulent royal quarters, raised balconies and interlocking walkways in symmetrical tiers on all four sides, crowned by domed pavilions and turrets. One can find the fragments of mirror-inlay and vibrant painting plastered over their walls and ceilings.

Sorry for being not regular on the blog. I have been keeping quite busy with hundreds of shots taken in Khajuraho and Orchha on my December trip to these places. I have just uploaded the set of Khajuraho pics till now and you can check them here. Orchha pics would be uploaded in next few days. Personally, I am not at all happy with my work at Khajuraho (maybe cuz as one friend said, I never loved that place)
