Through the doorsJune 28th, 2009

This morning while I was looking through Stuck in Customs I noticed Trey has posted a great picture of the crowds approaching the Taj Mahal. That reminded me of a shot I took early morning at the Taj also through one of the doors. Not much to tell you about it except that this one, as opposed to most of my shots, it’s not an HDR and the processing was minimal. Just a couple of curves here and there, but I kinda like it. Also, if you want to see more of my shots from India I posted some here.

Shot with NIKON D80 | 28mm | ƒ/5
