This are domes of Jamek Mosque in Kuala Lumpur.
It is in the heart of the city where it is surrounded by tall and big buildings.
Masjid Jamek is one of the oldest mosques in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is located at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak River and was designed by Arthur Benison Hubback.
The Sultan of Selangor officially opened the mosque in 1909, two years after construction was completed. The mosque was built on the first Malay burial ground in the city. Before the national mosque, Masjid Negara, was opened in 1965, Masjid Jamek served as Kuala Lumpur's main mosque.
The mosque has a Moorish architecture. Across the Klang River stands the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, a building that was designed by the same architect and shares a similar style.
Nearby is the Masjid Jamek LRT station that is served by the Kelana Jaya Line, Sri Petaling Line and Ampang Line. Dataran Merdeka is also nearby.

I have photo of this hidden mosque too but not yet upload, not easy to shoot this mosque surrounding by some other architectures, good frame to the big dome, plants and background buildings.

I very much like the content contrast and point of view. The structure is quite a work of art - you have captured it well.

belle photo de ces toit magnifique en forme de goute, jolies couleurs qui se détachent bien sur ce fond pris d' immeubles moderne.
L' ensemble des deux est agréable a regarder.
Les détails bien nets nous montre même les filets de protection sur ces toits.

Great idea to photograph the Majid Jemek completely differnet then usually. Congrats. It shows the contrast between religion and business, what also boost DOF. The mosque looks like an island floating in KL's towers. Sharpness is fine as well. Well done

Great photo of this beautiful mosque in this urban environment. That white mosque is like a hope in this dark and rural world.

I like very much this kind of contrasts, modern architecture and the wonderful curves from the Mosque, the contrasts of lines and colours, the cold background and the warm clear light from the Mosque...
Good idea to shot and a good price for you!
Have a nice day.

This is a great composition, where you manage to make the subject really stand out!
This is due to both placement in the frame and also of course the outstanding colour contrast...
Excellent details in the architecture, the light is cleverly used to the benefit of the subject!
