Salam Seyed. Glorious colours and details. Lovely composition in which the garden offers attractive contrast to the intricate designs which adorn the mosque. Lovely light. Excellent exposure.It is good to read that restorations did occur occur in the 14th century- which makes me wonder if these days the ancient skills of tile making are alive and well or are the secrets of making certain colours lost.Regards. Klaudio.

una delle più belle costruzioni del Medio Oriente, sia per la forma che per le maioliche dipinte che ne avvolgono interamente cupola e facciata.
Uno straordinario monumento della splendida città di Esfahan, della quale anche io conservo delle immagini sotto forma di diapositiva che mi riprometto in un prossimo futuro di trasformare in digitale.
Una vista oltretutto originale, diversa da quella classica che si affaccia sulla grande piazza.
Buoni sia contrasto, che nitidezza e colori.
Ciao e buona serata

On the thumbnail I recognized the mosque and its beautiful dome. In 1996 I've visited Esfahan and remember well the Naghsh-e Jahan Square and this mosque.
You show the wonderful architecture very well here and included a nice green foreground.
I really like the different colours of the mosque and of course its magnificent tiles.
Best regards, Paul

a very interesting view that comprises several attractive features of the impressive architecture. The foreground is lovely, the natural textures and colours provide a relaxing view and a fine chromatic contrast. There's excellent sharpness and I like the way you divided the frame between the different styles of the building and the imposing role you gave to the magnificent dome. The light is very pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
