The Taj Mahal: 26 Images from Traditional to Unique

The Taj Mahal is one of the most photographed buildings in the world. While there is no doubt that a good photographer can get a great shot of the Taj from front on in the traditional way it is photographed, many photographers also show that it is possible to get some unique and original images of the building by changing everything from the angles to the time of day to post production. We think this collection shows the variety in which this beautiful building can be photographed for stunningly different results.

    These are such beautiful photos! I really love the foggy ones and the silhouettes. I also had the opportunity to photograph the Taj Mahal just about exactly a year ago. I have seen hundreds of photos of the Taj and I also wanted to take a unique or an original photo of it. Though not nearly as good as the ones above I would love to hear anyone thinks of it:

      These are very nice and beautiful photos. I can feel the presence of the morning from these photos. I have been to India twice and have visited the Taj 3 years ago. It was heart breaking to see the village around it but breathtaking once you are in side the Taj grounds. It was amazing to know that a black Taj was about to be built. Very nice photos especially when you can feel the mist and comfort of the weather and kind of a homey feeling of nature.

    Great photos, but I think you missed some of the more unique photos of the Taj Mahal. Many of the amazing images are seen from the boats on the water. I would try to include some of those.

    While many of the photographs are very good I feel that if I were selecting the photographs I would eliminate any that don’t say “Taj Mahal” and any where the minarets are leaning inwards. The minarets are actually leaning slightly outwards, that is one of the amazing architectural designs of the Taj. Sorry but in my opinion only 10 photos deserve to be here.
