>Dear all,

>It is immense pleasure for me and Naveen to announce that India has won 
>officially at the photo-contest Wiki Loves Monuments internationally. Two of 
>the photos from India among 3,60,000+ have made it to the top-10.
>

>
>
>
>
>1. Tomb of Safdarjung from Delhi has received from the highest ranking by the 
>international jury, as the image wins first prize globally. The photo plays 
>with the light and gives a wonderful contrast between the darkness of the room 
>and the lighted tomb, giving it a dramatic effect. The photographer is Pranav 
>Singh, from Delhi.
>
>
>Safdarjung's Tomb, a garden tomb with a marble mausoleum in New Delhi, India. 
>It was built in 1754 in the late Mughal Empire style, and was described as 
>"the last flicker in the lamp of Mughal architecture".
>
>
>Comments from Jury: 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.
>
>
>
>
>
>
>2. The Taj Mahal is no where lying behind. The winning photo from India ranks 
>6th internationally. The photographer is Narender Kumar, again from Delhi.
>
>
>The Taj Mahal, is a mausoleum located in Agra, India, that was built under 
>Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It is 
>one of the most famous Indian buildings and considered a symbol for love world 
>wide.
>
>
>Comments from Jury: 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.
>

>
>It's happy moment for the Indian community. Congratulationsto all winners. 
>Thanks to the entire Indian community and to the Wikimedia India Chapter for 
>constant cooperation.
