Hello Rashid, I enjoyed spending time with this image, There is so much to study; the individuals and groups of people, the beautiful architecture shapes, and the great tonality particularly in highlights. This is the kind of image I would hang on my wall in a busy place so I could see a new aspect each time I passed.

Rashid - this image appeals to me a lot too - there is so much to see. I love looking through the repeating architectural shapes to the people beyond and the delicacy of the tonal range. The detail and textures in the reflections are superb and the lady and buggy in the foreground very important in terms of foreground interest.It is a little unfortunate that the dark edge of the pool cuts through the neck of the young girl walking by - unfortunately there appears to be no detail in the head which could be brought out to give some separation.Great image!   Posted: 08/10/2019 03:16:54

The domestic scene in the foreground adds depth to your wonderful image, both literally and figuratively. Congratulations on a fine shot.   Posted: 08/11/2019 18:27:53

Hello Rashid. Lots of interesting things to review in this image. Layers of activity. I agree with John about the young girl but since this is a candid image, things get in the way.
My attention goes to the woman and baby in the foreground. The busy background adds interest and I seem to ignore the girl. What a fun place to maker images.   Posted: 08/14/2019 16:08:43

Hi Rashid
Firstly may I congratulate you on the way you have handled the exposure this has such a massive range of contrast but everything to my eye is perfect as Karl said there is so much to see so much interest in every area of the image then you return to the image and spot something different this is a brilliant snapshot of daily life in and around the mosque congratulations.   Posted: 08/19/2019 17:14:49
