Red Fort - Sawan Pavillion

I have got to stop carrying my camera with me when I visit historical monuments.My best images are not of the historical monumnents. I guess it would also help me enjoy my trip more. This is the Sawan Pavillion at Red Fort in Delhi. Just like there is "jawab" to the mosque at Taj Mahal, there are two such pavillions at Red Fort. One is Sawan and the other is Bhado. Both are named after rainy month from Hindu calendars.

It was also interesting to watch the combination of Mughal and British architecture.

This shot is also an HDR. I have recently started experimenting with them and I believe it will take me some time to get used to them, right now the images look bland to me as they lack the kind of contrast I am used to.
