Unusual composition. Lazy and meaningless title . . . much worse than having no title at all.
Really interesting effect in the trees. How did they get their red light? From painting with light? A natural side-effect of the time-lapse photography? From something else???
Hopefully, after the voting stage is over, you'll post here and give a short synopsis of your work-flow . . . I thought the red in the trees made it a *much* more dramatic photo.

Lazy and meaningless title. Overall effect would be better if 5 seconds had been taken in the submission phase to add a title that tells us something. Or, to remove any title, which also would have been fine.
Nice exposure, and you even got some clouds in the background, which is not easy to find in Jaipur most times of the year! :-)
I like the composition. But the snake is out of focus, which is a pity. I think the shot would have been more effective with both the snake and the charmer's face tack-sharp.
It was a good idea to crop down the image...you took away all the distracting stuff in that edit. So, very nice job on that end.
Adding the info in the description is great. Offset a bit by the lazy and meaningless title. Having no title at all would be much better than what you used.
("Galtaji Temple" would be an example of a simple, but good, title for an image like your.)
Nice image. Terrible title. Far better to have no title at all than to have a lazy and meaningless one.
Interesting composition--the wall is usually photographed much more close-up. If you had taken the photo at a "better" time of day (ie, with nice light), it would have turned out better, I think. It certainly would have been better exposed . . . the sky is horribly blown out and that is very visually distracting. You could have brought focus back to the subject by doing some cropping. Remove the top part of the sky, which adds nothing. Crop out the entire left part of the frame, leaving in just a bit of the building past the Hawa Mahal. Now, the eye would go to the wall, and to the interesting taxi motorcycle in the foreground.
cgravel: Thanks Mayurgogi. You're right, I always use Auto. I tried to learn all the other modes but I don't seem to get it. Too lazy ? may be...
Don't worry about it too much. We were all beginning photographers at one point. Once you've had 6 months of experience, using simple (but more advanced) functions will be like second-nature . . . we all went through that learning curve. :-)
I'm kind of amazing by this shot. I was in the same location (I am guessing) . . . one particular room in the Red Fort.
But I shot with a 480mm lens and my result was much "wider."
Did you crop this image? If so, you managed to get really nice detail. Either way; great job.
There are some really clever compositions in this challenge . . . some doing things I'd never have thought of.
There are also several that clearly did not understand what "forced perspective" means, and don't fit at all into this challenge. It will be interesting to see what images the voters like and do not like.
What is the forced perspective in this image? I see a subject, in focus, standing in front of a background, which is out of focus? In what way does this fit into the challenge theme???
Perfect example of the challenge's theme.
Very clever and funny composition. Way to embrace the idea of the challenge and take it in an unexpected direction! :-)
Very nice composition, and very soothing mood. Quite lovely.
I have a feeling that this challenge is gonna get a bunch of the Hawa Majal. (Which makes sense--it's really a spectacular site.)
Meaningless title. Worse than having no title at all.
I like the composition. I hate the lazy and meaningless title . . . much worse than having no title at all.
I really like the unusual composition. I hate the title . . . lazy and meaningless. Far worse than having no title at all.
It's hard to find a "fresh" take on a site that has been photographed as much as the Taj has. You've succeeded in this wonderfully.
Really nice composition.
