The mosque is very elegant but unfortunately, it seems to have sprouted appendages that are not commensurate with its beauty. I like the inclusion of those two vehicles on the street.

Interesantan tekst o dzamiji sa opisom, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana arhitektura i detalji na fasadi.
Imajte lep dan za odmor, sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the mosque with the description, nice view ...
Good time recording and contrast, beautiful architecture and details shown on the facade.
Have a nice day to relax, all the best.

The main subject here looks absolutely great with its unique design and architectural elements. I am sure this must be a fantastic mosque but why is it surrounded by the market? I don't get it, maybe this is a cultural thing. Anyway, beautifully seen and photographed! TFS!
Have a nice day!

Fabulous clear image over the street and up to the mosque roof-top turrets.
Impossible to count, but a very impressive set of small turrets and 4 big towers, and the domes within.
Marvelous piece of architecture.

Thanks for sharing.

Another kind of nostalgic photo for me from a place I have walked by many times. This mosque is a small gem in a noisy and busy area. The good light has given you very nicely mild colours. It's an interesting fact that the two cars are not the traditional Ambassadors, as they would have been just a few years ago.

As I can see I've missed some nice photos from your gallery during my TE absence, but I will caught up soon.
This one is excellent, nice view to beautiful mosque. Superb combination of nice architecture with the street life around.
Very well done.

Such quaint little mosques sure do increase the beauty of mundane cities. Excellently shot.
Nice peaceful Kolkata! Can't think of it. :)
PS: I am here after almost a month away from TE (for unavoidable reasons), am glad to see your photos again.

Impressive architecture, the Tipu Sultan Mosque's 16 domes are very articulate and historically worthy of continuing protection for all to enjoy.
adramad (45354) 2014-05-08 7:36
Fantastic composition with this beautiful mosque, with its many domes and minarets, creates an image of great beauty, while the life of the city continues beside her.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Have a nice day.
All the best.

You say 'typical' street scene, where as my Western eyes say "whoa!" :) What a collection of different elements in this frame, I love how it all comes together...but the mosque still looks out of place to me. lol Beautiful just the same to see from this vantage point, and a wonderful mix of modern and ancient. Just another day on the streets, yeah? ;) Enjoy the new day. Take good care.

eldancer1 (36343) 2014-05-09 7:25
I think architects of the past built beautiful and durable buildings as compared to big boxes being built today. Nice captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Belle vue de la mosquée depuis la rue, une belle et intéressante architecture, grand contraste avec les autres bâtiments plus précaire, belle présentation
Tout le meilleur

Very nice photo of this Mosque. The number of cupolas, spires, minarets and other architectural features is very impressive and you have found a great perspective for this photo. Your inclusion of the cars makes the scene a bit more vivid. TFS and have a nice day!

I am glad to see it. The city is so famous and yet I would not be able to recall seeing any building from it. This seems like a really beautiful structure here, you had a bit difficult light with white sky which does not help the colors but the architecture is so interesting anyway.
Thanks for sharing,

Many compliments for the perfect verticals on each side of frame.
Your exotic picture features a paradoxical view opposing the elegant old mosque to modern cars.
pierrefonds (65898) 2014-06-07 16:14
You have captured well the cars moving on the street. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the buildings. The cloudy sky does not hurt the output of the colors. Have a nice day.
