The Abbasi Hotel was originally built about 300 years ago as a caravanserai by the mother of Shah Sultan Hossein, the last Safavid ruler. The old caravanserai was restored in the 1960’s as a luxury hotel. The photo shows its expansive courtyard where guests can dine, enjoy tea and relax.

You explored very well all this place's simetry, Amir. The composition is well thined. I like the variety of colors, from the blue water to the purple flowers. Just have a question for you: is the sky always that gray like that?

Fascinating! You took me to a place I can't imagine seeing myself, and they're beautiful! The photography job is very good as well - good angle and great colors.

Again another wonderful shot showing the beautiful architecture and landscape in your country. I don't want to say anything that might deter you from posting photos like the ones that you have been, I like them very much. I think that often times your subjects are so large that it is near impossible to capture them entirely in the frame. You might want to try focusing on a smaller part of your subjects and taking pictures of them too. An example would be if you had possitioned yourself at the bridge over the water that goes across the image. You could have pointed the camera at a 45 degree angle to the right and captured the walkways and water ways going away from your position with all the arches in the background.
Thanks for another great picture!

The contrast between the sparkling colors on the ground (with the blue pool and all the flowers) and the greyish colors of the sky and the early spring/winter (?) trees is really effective and truly original.

Rather strong colors that make this shot a bit unreal, on the other hand I find it with good details and nice composition.I like it
