About the Image(s)

This photo was taken three years ago in Tajikistan. Ismail Samani is well known to the Tajik and Afghan people, this high golden statue is located in the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe.

I shooted this photo using Canon 5D Mark IV, using 24-70 lens, with a focal length of 39mm, and F/2.8 aperture, for 1/500 sec exposure time, using Aperture priority mood, edited using Adobe Lightroom Classic.

I like this image a lot. The perfectly centered composition is perfect. Hard to suggest any changes. If anything perhaps a better sky. Have you ever tried HDR? This might work well to get a nicely exposed sky.   Posted: 10/10/2021 14:16:58

I do like the picture and the composition. Maybe the only thing that I would change is try to low the whites, as it seems to me a bit overexpose behind the sculpture.
Rather than that, I think this is a beautiful picture!   Posted: 10/11/2021 14:05:17
