The Minaret of Jam is intricately decorated over its entire surface. The patterns are designs from the Ghorid period. Even through the minaret is 800 years old the detail is remarkably well preserved.
For a shot of the entire tower please see yesterday's post here.

Hi Jonathan. I like this close-up of the Minaret and expecially how you framed it to include the beautiful sky and the moon, which is so great with a minaret... symbolic and iconic. well done.

I like this shot! The icredible detail is now apparent, and there is a wonderful transition between light and shadow. The addition of the moon is a nice touch. Great work!

J'aime aussi les détails de ce minaret. C'est une vraie ouvre-d'art! Et la Lune sur fond de ciel bleu: très bien vu! (d'ailleurs si tu veux la voir en gros plan un peu dans les mêmes conditions avec une de mes photos sur TN...)

What a fantastic detail of the minaret, after yesterday's post. You surprised me with this one! Extraordinary sharpness and lighting. Great colours, beautiful blue sky that enhances the patterns. You even got the moon! Congratulations!
My favorite of today!
Thanks a lot,

Excellent exposure, nice deep rich colours, great contrast. This close up gives good detail of the carving and craftsmanship of the building. The moon is an inspired touch.

Nice composition and POV. The colours are good and makes a nice contrast.
Also is a nice detail of an interesting tower, that minaret.

I missed a lot...
This detail was a good idea : the sculptures are so impressive !
Excellent sharpness and dof : the moon is quite pertinent here.

Composition magistrale par sa simplicité et sa force. La dentelle de pierre et la lune c'est beau à voir. Merci.
