Sacred Complex

  // May 16, 2003 (Click on image to see panaroma)

The Jama Masjid complex at Fatehpur Sikri. Extreme left is the Buland Darwaza, Jama Masjid, Sheik Salim Chisti's dargah, Jamat Khana and Badshahi Darwaza. A photo taken at exact noon, you can see loss of details in the shadows as well as highlights. This, inspite of using negative film which has about 7 stops of exposure latitude. Since I was on a very short trip, I did not wait for the evening to set in. Plus, I was tripping with some very impatient people who had absolutely nomotivation in waiting for long in the May heat.
