Hi Prabu, a great shot and these are lovely birds, but they are plum headed parakeets. The ring necked parakeet is the plain green bird. I was pleased to see several pairs of the plum headed parakeets in Ranthambhore two years ago. I'll be in Kerala in a few weeks so I hope I'll see some more.
Yes, I agree with the others. The crop is too tight, so the building doesn't have any scale or position in its environment. The temptation is always to shoot square on to the building, but, unless there's a foreground lead in such as the one you get from within the complex, there is no apparent depth. You seem to have a white balance problem. I know that the Taj Mahal isn't white, but is a wonderful set of pale colours. I took a shot form the gardens across the Jamuna and you can see it here. Have a look at that and see how it differs.
A fine shot of what was, in its day, cutting edge engineering. The airiness of the structure belies the underlying strength.
