    Akbar's Tomb in Sikandra ... A study of shadows, repetition and converging lines

    2.

    Red Fort in Old Delhi - Another study in repetitions, lines and wonderful patterns. This palace is made of white marble with inlay work of semi-gems.

    Amber Fort near Jaipur, another palace made from white marble, and here they chiselled a mosquito out of the stone.

    Lattice work window (called "Jaliis") in Fatehpur Sikri

    Detail of "Jaliis" with colourful threads - women who wish to get a son pray and put the threads into the lattice work

    View from the fort over Kuchaman - the fort is on a rock, 300m above the town

    I like number 1 but I didn't really notice the shadow until you mention it though.

    These are really really good, IMHO. Wow. LOVE #1 (such warm colours, and you lined up the doorways just perfectly). Love 4 and 6 too.

    Shhh, may I tell you all a secret?
    Photo 1 ... I saw that one and said "You must post this one, you must!", when she would have considered it too boring to post ;). But I worked on the levels a bit in Photoshop (my sister doesn't understand Photoshop as yet, but she'll get there, too, I am sure) and voilĂ ! :D

    Bumped upon my sister's request - else she does not know how to find her threads again.
