Bangla Sahib Gurudwara....

Bangla Shhib Gurudwara Night Shot.. Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is the most prominent Sikh gurdwara, or Sikh house of worship, in Delhi, known for its association with the eighth Sikh Guru, Guru Har Krishan, and the pond inside its complex, known as the "Sarovar", whose water is considered holy by Sikhs and is known as "Amrit". It was first built as a small temple by Sikh General, Sardar Bhagel Singh in 1783, who supervised the construction of nine Sikh shrines in Delhi in the same year, during the reign of Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam II.

Qutub Minar...

Qutub Minar (English: The Qutub Tower; Urdu: قطب مینار‎), also known as Qutb Minar and Qutab Minar, is the tallest minaret in India, originally an ancient Islamic Monument, inscribed with arabic inscriptions, though the iron pillar has some bhramini inscriptions, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in Delhi, the Qutub Minar is made of red sandstone and marble. The tower has 379 stairs, is 72.5 metres (237.8 ft) high, and has a base diameter of 14.3 metres, which narrows to 2.7 metres at the last storey. Construction was started in 1192 by Qutub-ud-din Aibak and was completed by Iltutmish. It is surrounded by several other ancient and medieval structures and ruins, collectively known as the Qutub complex. Tradition assigns the erection of the pillar to Anang Pal, whose name it bears, with the date 1052 C.E.

Golden Temple...

Golden Temple Night Shot... The Harmandir Sahib also Darbar Sahib and informally referred to as the Golden Temple is a prominent Sikh Gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. There are four doors to get into the Harmandir Sahib, which symbolize the openness of the Sikhs towards all people and religions. The present day Gurdwara was rebuilt in 1764 by Jassa Singh Ahluwalia with the help of other Sikh Misl's. In the early nineteenth century, Maharaja Ranjit Singh secured the Punjab region from outside attack and covered the upper floors of the Gurdwara with gold, which gives it its distinctive appearance and English name the Golden Temple.

Day to Night Photo Timelapse... I tried this thing 2years back too but Result was not so good..So happy this time i get good result... Lotus Temple New Delhi india

India Gate Timelapse

How to Shoot "Time Interval Single Frame" I was trying “Time Interval Single Frame“ photograph for quite some time but never got satisfying results because of certain mistakes...So here what I learnt from my mistakes and finally achieved what I was looking for: 1. Decide how big Time Interval Single frame shot you want...According to that decide your start and end time.. 2. Usually I love to shoot from daytime to Golden Hour to Blue Hour and Final Shot of Night...But if you want so you can start from morning too when you get Night-Blue-Golden and then Daytime... 3. Using of Tripod is compulsory because you want all shots from same angle. It helps in overlapping the shots in Photoshop. 4. Settings is not so Important.It depends on you how and what setting you want to use. Only thing you have to take care is that while changing exposure setting,do not change the aperture as it may affect Depth of Field. Change the shutter speed and since the camera is mounted on tripod work with lowest ISO. 5. Choose interesting subject and try to avoid shooting against Sunset-sunrise as it will turned your some shots into silhouette or may be you loose details on backlit shots... 6. After shooting your all Convert/Edit them the way you want. It is not necessary that editing settings are same for all the shots. 7. After Edit Open all your shots on Photoshop By Stacking or Automate>Photomerge (But Unclik "Blend Images Together" because you do not want to merge them right now .At this stage you just want the software put them on each other and align.) 8. Now after Aligning them on Layer place them on Time Sequence like you shoot... 9. Now select the part you want on final photo and press Ctrl+Shift+I then Delete Delete...Now Select 2nd Photo and again select portion you want on second frame and press Ctrl+Shift+I then Delete to remove other Deselcted Portion...Carry on the Method till your last Photo Layer..( Keep saving PSD and Edit them on Duplicate Layers so that you have already alligned Non Cropped Version) 10. In last just Merge your All layers and save them on JPEG/TIFF or Any Format you want....

Humayun's Tomb

Humayun's Tomb The last refuge of Mughal Emperor Humayun reminds rather of a luxurious palace, than a tomb. Located in the eastern part of Dehli, Humayun’s tomb is one of the best preserved Mughal monuments. This spellbinding mausoleum is the first example of Mughal architecture in India. After a century from its construction Humayun’s tomb inspired the construction of the more famous Taj Mahal. From the point of view of the history of architecture this building is the unique connecting link between the Gur Emir, where Humayun’s ancestor Tamerlane is buried, and the mausoleum of his grandson Shah Jahan, i.e. Taj Mahal. Humayun’s tomb was built thanks to the initiative of his widow Hamida Banu Begum, who commenced the construction of a mausoleum for her deceased husband in 1565, nine years after his death. The construction was finished in 1572. The architecture of the tomb is strongly influenced by Persian architecture. The architect of the building Mirak Mirza Ghiyas himself was of Persian origin. Ghiyas constructed the tomb in the center of a Persian-style chaharbagh garden (translated from Farsi - four gardens) with quadrilateral form. The garden, divided in four main parts by walkways or flowing water is created to resemble the paradise garden described in the Quran. These four main parts on their turn are separated by channels to 36 parts. From the 17th to the 19th centuries the garden was gradually filled with the tombs of Humayun’s descendants and his entourage. Several Mughal emperors are even buried inside Humayun’s mausoleum. Humayun’s mausoleum has earned the title of necropolis of the Mughal dynasty. No sepulcher in India or elsewhere contains such a high number of tombs of the Mughal emperors and their relatives. Moreover, Humayun’s tomb is the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. The mausoleum stands on a massive platform which has a height of up to 7 meters. The building is constructed from red sandstone, while the tomb itself is made of yellow and black marble. The two-storied mausoleum is crowned with white Persian style marble dome that seems weightless and imponderable. The height of Humayun's Tomb is 47 meters, and its breadth is 91 meters. The lower tier of this rectangular construction is decorated with graceful arches, which are located around the whole perimeter of the building. The cenotaph of the ruler is located in the center of the upper tier in a large room decorated with several rows of arched windows. The central chamber is octagonal with corner-chambers which house the graves of other members of the royal family. The real grave of the emperor is on the basement floor. The architecture of the mausoleum has details both from Persian architecture and Indian architectural traditions. The Persian influence can be seen in the arched alcoves, corridors and the high double dome, while Indian traditions have inspired the creation of the kiosks, which give it a pyramidal outline from distance.

Qutub at Night

My first encounter with #Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 AE lens.It made me say WOW instantly :) I could not get a chance to explore astro but Qutub is a right place for testing this lens. You can see it's sharpness. I not only adore it's quality at night but also love how it has been built beautifully ! burst at f/11...Mostly direct light always distracts and irritates many photographers who tries to shoot with wide angle here. But this lens has converted that distraction into attraction. :) © Nimit Nigam || September 2016
