About the Image(s)

This photo was taken two years ago in the city of Samarkand, Uzbakistan. The building was very important historical Islamic school thousand years ago, while it is still remains till today, it is a must see place while you are in Central Asia.
I shoot this photo using canon 6D, 24-70 Lens, with a focal length of 16mm, and F/16 aperture, for 4 seconds exposure time, using tripod and remote control.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Very nice shot of a beautiful building. Interesting lighting. 14-24 lens? and overall a nice capture. I think I'd be tempted to crop off some of the foreground and maybe a little of the sky as shown in attached but otherwise no suggestions for improvement.   Posted: 11/10/2020 21:02:14

Beautiful photo! As Graham suggested, perhaps a bit too much foreground. I like the way the lighting brings out the colors and they blend so nicely with the sky. My eyes keep being drawn to the right of the photo; it is brightest here. I like the way the light really emphasizes the detail, but I do wish the center of the photos was lit the same way. I'd love to see other photos showing the incredible beautiful detail of the building. I may have to add this to my wish list of places to visit.   Posted: 11/20/2020 14:48:30

very interesting architecture of a very significant historical site. The colors and composition are very good. Also, i believe you did a very good job of exposing for the bright area on the right, the sky and yet you have detail in the darker areas of the building. I also like that i see people but they are blurred just enough so not to distract. I also find that i am drawn to the light on the right side instead of the center. I believe this image has so much to offer with some processing to certain areas. Maybe brightening the exposure to the center building and darkening the right side?   Posted: 11/29/2020 07:07:24
