Islamic architecture in Cordoba, southern Spain. Cropped to remove extraneous details. This is near the old Roman bridge just before the arch and adjacent to the main square. Cordoba was ruled by the Islamic Moors from neighbouring Morocco. They were expelled by Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand in 1492 but their legacy remains to the delight of thousands of tourists.

semplice e stilizzata nello stesso tempo.
Un ottimo soggetto per mostrare le influenze arabe nella cultura andalusa e nello stesso tempo per una bella fotografia nella quale le forme ed i colori si integrano a vicenda per una visione assai gradevole.
Auguri di Buon Natale

A superb symmetrical composition to bring out the beauty of this unique architecture. Lovely contrast between the colors of the window and the wall. Well framed by the ornate cornice. Well seen and well rendered.

The symmmetry of the Windows is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of facade of the building. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

I have been much too busy to trek the latest photos at TE, but I am very happy to see something from you, when I do log onto this addictive site. You have indeed captured a symmetric aspect of Cordoba, the Spanish city that beyond others marries the elements of Moorish and Spanish architecture.
I recently posted a blog at National Geographic that I would love to have you peruse: A Defining Statue of Ataturk...
I wish you a (belated) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A nice architectural study shot based on a simple but also eye-catching concept. The windows with their unique design and decorations look together really great and made the scene very well. TFS!
