Tomb of Safdarjung, New Delhi Author: Pranav Singh. Jury Comments"The strong light contrast between the lighted tomb and the darkness of the room emphasizes the monument, and gives it a dramatic component. The tomb is sharp and detailed, and free of visual distractions; with gravity and a perfect sense for the angle of view and light this picture presents the object – the architecture and light forming a stage for the tomb, focusing on the details of the stone carving. All in all a nicely framed and executed picture that seems to speak of the significance of this tomb."
A rear view of Taj Mahal. Author:Narender. Jury Comments"The Taj Mahal is probably one of the most photographed monuments in the world and definitely in this competition. This particular image gives an impressive view of the silhouette, showing also the adjoining buildings. The complex seems to wake up,out of the mist. It gives context and mystery at the same time showing just a bit more than on most pictures"
