It's a big tower(minaret)of a beautiful mosque in "Tehran" permanent international trade fair ground.
Again, it was a simple play with the sun (!) and only a piece of cloud in the sky and tower's shadow.
After scanning, I used NI & a bit cropped.
I hope you like it

I like these new experiments of yours with patterns in the sky. This one looks great with the sun behind the minaret.

The cloud looks like a map of Iceland. A strong, simple & effective image.

nice image, I like the glow from behind the tower and the cloud here again really is nice, the two together make this shot really good. The lighting is perfect

Nice lighting affect you caught here, Mohammad. But it is not just you and them in the picture, what about those CCTV cameras on the minaret?

A nice continuation to your previous photo, Mohammad. Fine effect from the sun that is masked out by the minaret, and creates an amazing luminosity around the tower's silhouette and on the cloud. Again the limited but quite effective color setting. Very good.
Rockyboy (20596) 2004-07-15 15:34
Wonderful picture, Mohammad! I like very much to see this cloud and this tower against the sun. the blue is also very nice. Bravo!

Great & cleaver way to use backlit effect. Nice composition also. The blueish tone add more dramatic value to this photo.

Another beautiful shot with a cloud. And the tower really adds a great touch to this. BUt the great color, the lighting and the lightness of the cloud makes everything float here, including the tower. Another interesting and very well executed idea. Very well spotted.

Superb composition ! The small cloud gives a great touch to this shot. Very nice crop. Good job !

Hi Mohammad - I like the way you make the sun disappear behind that minaret. it creates a very special light and gives the cloud a fine touch.
Thanks for sharing this fine work - and congratulation with the 2000 points.
sengir (4956) 2004-07-16 17:21
very nice and interesting composition, often very simple pictures are the best
albiback (8665) 2004-07-16 17:22
Divine light for a photograph which is not afraid of the back-light. Graphics and balance, Well done .
avigur_11 (21954) 2004-07-16 17:27
Wonderful artistic shot, Mohammad. I like this cloud and the way it is lit. Excellent exposure. Well done.
waskahegan (0) 2004-07-18 18:25
Excellent, the sun shines from where people are called to pray, great analogy
maphoto (8082) 2004-07-19 6:04
Wonderful and original shot, great idea that you had, the light against the cloud is simply wonderful and makes a very unusual color of sky, georgous shot, well done.
Hanssie (9921) 2004-07-24 3:25
Backlight on the minaret and still clear details ! Excellent !
And the cloud with the sunlight on it, wonderful picture, Mohammad !!
sn00zie (2384) 2004-07-26 12:01

phi729 (2101) 2004-09-15 17:38
This one is fantastic, Mohammad. I love the light reflected on the cloud and the play hide-and-seek between the Sun and the Minaret. Very fine details of the fences on top of the Minaret. Great composition!
bgotauco (72) 2004-10-22 13:06
Hi Mohammad, thanks for dropping by.
I like the backlight effect you created in this pic. Looks like a light shining out of the tower...
Another thing that caught my eye is the shape of the cloud - funny ChrisJ mentioned it looks like a map of Iceland. I think it looks like a map of China! :-)
Thanks again, and glad to help you reach the 5000 point mark!
