photoblog image Birds of the same feather

Birds of the same feather

A tourist at the Qutb complex - couldn't help notice how impressed she was with the architecture. To tell you the truth, I was more impressed by the camera she had - a Canon EOS - I guess the grass on the other side of the fence is always greener :D

The Historic aspect of the shot - the pillars you see in the background belong to the Hindu & Jain temples that were destroyed to build the Mosque and the Minar in the Qutb Complex. Such forced fusion eventually led to many constructions bearing signs of both ancient Hindu and Islamic architecture.

HA! We all look at the cameras of other people, don't we, Thomas! Your camera worked just fine here, however. You don't need another to get across the majesty of these columns. I'm ashamed to say I don't know enough to tell where the Hindu leaves off and the Islamic begins. The fusion is splendid and I actually kinda like it at an angle. I've tilted it even more in my head to see the columns horizontally. smile
Thomas Mathew: You are right Ginnie smile Well all the pillars you see here are Hindu art work. Islam architecture is more smooth whereas Hindu architecture is about detailed and sharper edges. So one would associate circular domes to the Islamic school and the triangular edges to the Hindu school. Hope I'll be able to get some more comparisons for you in my future shots smile

I always look at other people's cameras too! grin It was a great idea to combine it with such a great place. Those pillars are an art masterpiece. I wonder if she shot a picture of you and your camera too!
Thomas Mathew: I wish she has Rob and probably I could bump into my pic on her photoblog grin

curves and levels can help a bit with contrast control and the whiteness on the subject
Thomas Mathew: Thanx for the help Abi, I'll try that once I get photoshop smile As of now, I'm using Picassa for PP
Nice choice of angle and composition !!
Thomas Mathew: Thanx Zeb smile
