dopo tante belle montagne e distese infinite di verde e di rocce una discesa in città ben riuscita con questa ripresa nella quale la composizione perfetta e la cura della luce e del contrasto mettono in bella evidenza un'architettura notevole soprattutto per la sua oriuginale forma oltre che per la decorazione tipica dell'Iran e delle regioni circostanti.
Ottima la saturazione dei colori e anche molto curata la presentazione.
Ciao e buona settimana

Together with an informative note, the dome of Sltaniyeh represents an excellent package for Trekearth — teaching us all geography through photography. I had no idea of the scale until I read your note, "... ranks third after Italy’s Santa Maria Church in Florence and Turkey’s Hagia Sofia mosque in Istanbul."

I love the Islamic architecture like this. the mosaics, the arches, the colours and building materials leave me in a sense of awe. Excellent wide angle shot, sharp, with the strong light managed so well.

Excellent architectural study of this beautiful building. Especially, the blue roof looks fantastic and contrasts well with the sandy walls. Very well seen and symmetrically composed. Well done!

I like your choice of the point of view, we can see the five of this octagonals. Good presentation of so interesting historical building. The note is very informative.

Le cadrage est classique mais efficace, bien centré dans l'image le dôme est d'une grande beauté sous ce ciel parfait. La contre plongée donne beaucoup d'ampleur à l'ensemble.
mkamionka (27073) 2013-11-26 5:38
beautiful structure. I like this huge turquoise dome. It seems it is a bit damaged but even so it attracts the attention, I am glad you shared it.
You have presented it very nicely set against the blue sky.
very well done!!

The trees are framing well the building. The point of view is showing the details, thecolors of the citadel and of the dome. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
