photoblog image Amber Fort: Ganesh Pol

Amber Fort: Ganesh Pol

Ganesh Pol, or the Ganesh Gate, is named after the elephant headed Hindu Lord Ganesh, who removes all obstacles in life. It is ironic that there are large number of hapless elephants, pressed into the trade of carrying tourists on their backs up to the considerably elevated fort. The boy is sitting in front of well frescoed wall, on the first level. There are two other levels above this.

Nice--the boy gives it scale.
Ayush Basu: He had perhaps a bit too much of walking about the sprawling palace complex, Larry.

It is a gorgeous portal, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I wonder now if I should have applied some correction in the post processing to make the edges a bit straight up, Ray.

Magnifiques mosaïques.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine. I am pleased you like them.
Ce petit bonhomme apporte un plus dans la composition.
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: That is true, although I do not have his consent to take his photo, Pascale.

There is always something pleasing about faded elegance, which restoration can often destroy.
Ayush Basu: Very well put, Chad - I did not think of this but I agree with you, now that you mention.

I love the strong colours in this. Your little model adds some scale to the image.
Ayush Basu: He had perhaps a bit too much of walking about the sprawling palace complex, Alan.
I like the boy being there.
Ayush Basu: I think it was getting a bit weary for the boy, Mary.
There is some fine work in that doorway Ayush.
Ayush Basu: That is indeed so, Brian - quite a bit of things to see.
There is some fine work in that doorway Ayush.
It is rather fine. I wonder if people realise the irony?
Ayush Basu: Most tourists appeared oblivious although the plight of elephants has made it to the media, Bill.
That is very nicely done.
Ayush Basu: It was suitably awe inspiring, Michael.
What an ornate facade, Ayush, delightfully accessorized by this wee boy. I wonder if the elephants regard their trade as an honor, in light of their Hindu Lord Ganesh?
Ayush Basu: I think the elephants have had enough of the thankless tourists and a hard life there, Ginnie. It is already getting unpopular and I hope this practice ends soon.

Correction to straighten, would end up with half a boy. In my mind, the boy is an important feature of this image.
Ayush Basu: You are right about that, Louis. So there are still some things to better in this image.
Such a lovely portrait, we don't want the boy to steal the show, do we?
Ayush Basu: After site seeing on a warm day, he wanted to cool his heels, LC.

handsome little fella

love his hat
Ayush Basu: I think the hat was well needed in the warm and dry atmosphere of the desert day, Sherri.
Super shot, Ayush. Excellent in every way.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Frank. I am glad I left the boy in.
Another stunning National Geographic image, Ayush! You're in the wrong business, bud... smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the encouraging and enthusiastic compliment, Elizabeth. smile

I love the positioning of the young boy in front of the doorway smile
