It is actually 3D, in fact a cubic structure, Saadin Garden Pavillon of Menara Gardens in Marrakech.
The pavilion was built during the 16th century Saadi dynasty and renovated in 1869 by Sultan Abderrahmane of Morocco, who used to stay here in summertime. The pavilion is surrounded by orchards and olive groves and can be visited to see the exquisite ornaments and frescoes inside.

une compo bien faite sur cette façade qui s'inscrit dans un carré.
La lumière est très belle et met en valeur les détails et l'architecture.

You have visited a really impressive place! Your cropping perfectly fits the scene and supports the presentation if this spectacular architecture. Superb composition as well your execution made with a great sharpness. TFS!

Nice cubic structure and perfect square format to present it. Splendid symmetry and with stunning sharpness we have an impression of 3D. Very strange here are these very narrow windows(?) but I like most these three lovely windows with shutters, one incomplete. Must be nice to visit inside to see frescoes.
have a nice day, it is raining in Warsaw,

The square format is perfect here, very attractive in shape/form. The little green spot on the woman in the FG is also very attractive, and the windows of course.
How did You get the straight lines? Correction filter in PS?

Hi Deniz. The strong light and subsequently strong shadows accentuate both the structure and the decorative element of the building. Perfect alignment of topic and photographer. Selam. Klaudio.

A beautiful building, and one which I would imagine to be in Morocco! Amazing that this place is so old too, I would never think it from looking, but I guess that's because I am not familiar with the architecture. Your framing on this is absolutely perfect, and a great bit of timing to capture the woman to the left of the doorway, she adds life and scale to the whole scene. Really nicely done.

This is a most peculiar view. The pavilion really looks like a part of a huge wall with painted clouds surroundíng it. It's rather fascinating that nothing at all is visible of the side walls. But the contrasts are so good that the 2D façade actually looks like 3D, especially at the windows and the entrance. Very interesting and well taken.

Very interesting and attractive architecture picture!
The details of that façade were so beautifully photographed by you! I love, in this picture, the sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and symmetrical composition with the presence of some people's silhouettes also!
