About the Image(s)

This image of a mosque was taken early morning just around sunrise. The sky was not good as it is peak of summer in Dubai.

I used my Sony Alpha 1 camera with 24-70mm F2.8GMII Sony lens camera on a tripod. The technical specs are as under: f/11, 1/20 sec; 32mm in Aperture Priority Mode.

I waited for a long time for the truck to move but unfortunately it was still there.

Happy to receive any comments on the image

Hello Viren,
I enjoy Architectural Photography and your image is no exception.
You recorded an excellent "orthogonal" view of the facade.
One thing that is important in a clarity of imaging is to try to avoid objects or elements from sharing the exact same edge, including the edge of the image itself.
So . . . I appreciate the fact that the flag on the roof of the building in the distant right side of the image does not touch that frame edge.
I appreciate the fact that the left image crop cuts through the window glass as opposed to lining up exactly with one of the window mullions.
I appreciate the "breathing room" at the top of the image.
I appreciate the fact that the heads of the 3 seated people do not line up exactly with the building base.
I would be happier if the tires of the vehicle in the lower right also enjoyed a bit of breathing room at the base of the image.
Part of me wishes the the tone in the sky was more in contrast with the building face. I know my comments may seem trivial, but your image is worth the analysis.
Finally, the fact that the vertical edges in the scene are all portrayed as vertical is wonderful!
