A stunning view of this fantastic place, the golden dome looks superb. The light on the front of the building is amazing, as is the formation of the sky behind, packed with drama and beauty. Really nicely done. The people in the scene make an excellent reference of scale, but I have to look hard to see them as my eye is drawn to the dome so much.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

A fine abstract work of art, you really have found beauty in this subject, it looks superb. I love that you waited for the lady in this ideal street, she adds life and wonderful color contrat. A lesson to us all that beauty lies everywhere!
Thanks as always

This is a wonderful image, all of these arches reflect each others beauty, and the colors and tones of the scene is somber and very unique. To contrast that somber feel, the beam of light flooding from the left brightens it up really nicely. Excellent note too, to accompany this very cool image.
Thanks as always

I like this angle very much, a great and creative way to view these towering structures. They have great light willing across them, and the sky behind is beautiful.
I do like your note, but don't think I really understand the connection. Are these buildings empty, or abandoned? If so, they look remarkably well . as a fan of big buildings, I like these very much but as a resident of a bankrupt country, I know the ugliness of failed construction too.
Thanks for sharing.

I love the elegant sweeping lines of this structure, and the light falling across the scene is really pleasant to show the building in all it's glory. I don't know why, but if I had to guess without your note, I would have placed this building in Norway or Iceland, but in the same light, the building that instantly springs to mind when I see this image is Le Corbusiers Notre Dame de Haut in France. I cannot make any sense of these connections, but l really like that you image has instantly created visions of these sights in my minds eye.
The tree is a perct inclusion to break the potentially harsh effect of all this brushed steel, and the curb leads beautifully into the scene. I'm well pleased to learn of this place through your post, thank you as always!
P.S. thanks for the tips on straightening, I will try this on some of the many wonky stained glass images in my collection :)
Philellinon Square by elenimavrandoni (12085)

A beautiful momument, more so to see the flag flying proudly alongside it! I like the way you have surrounded the monument with the town that gives this square its character, but this does not take any emphasis at all away from the monument itself which still has pride of place in your composition. I like the light here, early evening or early morning? Lovely result, and a very interesting note, thank you!
Holy Shrine, Hossein- Ibn-Musa*(6)* by omid266 (2160)

Very nice combination of structures and plants piercing the horizon here, it makes for an image that takes my eye from one place to another, and each is rich in color and design. The sky has beautiful soft colors too, allowing the eye to focus on those of the paved area and the towers. Nicely done!
Thanks as always
Sunset on the Tower by fisher (1723)

A beautiful moment at this most iconic Irish place, and you have taken in both the famous rock column and the tower in one, as well as being under this beautiful light. Very nice image from the cliffs, very magical light and the tower makes a superb silhouette.
Thanks for sharing
Water by photographer_sg (1588)

There is a great optical illusion here, until I clicked in, I really thought that this was a small model building, or perhaps a part of a decoration. Only on clicking did I see the woman here delivering the water and showing the huge scale of the place. Beautiful image with which to emphasize your very interesting note.
Thanks as always
Auditorium by Romano46 (15808)

Ottimo per vedere questo come un seguito al tuo post precedente, all'interno dello stadio è grande e quanto grande per vedere la sua epica scala del design ha portato verso l'interno troppo. Anche se questo è un edificio piuttosto moderno, mentre guardo la grande struttura di distanza dal centro, mi ricorda una ciotola antica, forse che sarebbe riempita di fiamma wiht in qualche antico festival o gara. Dà ancora fuori una meravigliosa aria mondo più vecchio, proprio come l'esterno fa con le sue numerose statue.
