a very impressive capture of this magnificent mosque, I do like the warm light there. Well-chosen angle too with great depth and scale. I remember reading somewhere that you don't shoot churches:/ Looks like this one made you reconsider your attitude:)
Have a great weekend
No, I'm not going to Sochi, it'll be a madhouse down there.

that's a piece of a beautiful garden too:)
Very bright and happy, that jolly doll adds to the impression. I like the way you captured the chrysanthemums in the foreground, they're wonderful flowers. I've been enjoying them too lately, freshly installed in huge vases near one of Moscow's railway stations - great sight here in late November. I wonder if I see them tomorrow now that the temperature's dropped below zero:)
Thanks and have a great Sunday!

well, he's barely discernible there...Getting ready to ride the great wave, those surfers are brave guys for sure. Love the deep colors of the sea and the reddish cast on the waves crests. Beautiful light and a wonderful coast as you say.

a very attractive image, I love such places with Asian artists' paintings - there's always a special feel and atmosphere about them. Wonderful shady foreground, just like a painting too... Excellent bright colors and perfect sharpness, good job.
Have a nice week!

a very nice image taken from the roof top. Frankly, I don't see anything hideous there:) Everything looks very neat and appropriate but I like the red roof the most:)
Lovely decor with the white pebbles, I like the way you used it to create the perspective leading into the image. Great depth indeed.
Thanks and best wishes!

I like the angle you chose to show off those two famous golden towers. They do look in perfect synch though belong to different cultures. Beautiful golden light and fine clarity of the image.
Wish you all the best!
