Over the ages, and as far back as seven thousand years, Egypt stood the land where civilizations have always met. The Pharaohs together with the Greeks and the Romans have left their imprints here. Muslims from the Arab Peninsula, led by Amr ibn al-A'as, introduced Islam into Egypt. Khedive Mohammad Ali, with his Albanian family roots, put Egypt on the road to modernity. If anything, the cultural mix in this country is natural, given its heritage. Egypt can be likened to an open museum with monuments of the different historical periods on display everywhere...

I like the composition and the view to the city of Cairo.
Most of all I like the low light conditions.In my opinion this light makes the atmosphere!
And the moon of course...Nice work,

This a very nice panoramic view of the city, with a good composition. Unfortunatly the picture came out a bit underexposed, so I decided to improve it a bit. Check the workhsop version. I hope you like it.
Your note is also very informative.
