Hi Gilbert, this is an interesting and unusual scene, well-captured. Great colours, and your image is really sharp. The dome indicates that the setting is a Muslim country, but the rest of the scene is Disney-landish. Well seen! Regards,

Hello Gilbert -
A well executed night shot & great colors. I think I would have liked seeing this with a little light in the sky but this one works. I don't know what it is with the Arab states and their outlandish monuments, statues, and other urban art. I was in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and the traffic round about art was atrocious. Anyway, well done.
Thanks for sharing

I like the effects the light creates in this case. They have a good cotnrast with the black sky as background. Good sharpness though difficult light conditions.
Good job. Thanks for sharing

Ziet er heel sprookjesachtig uit, bijna een Efteling-tafereeltje.

Beautiful symmetry, very good night shot, sharpness is apposite for showing details.
i think (i'm not sure) this structure is a little imitation of persian architecture (for example Hafez tomb). tnx

Thank you for this slice of life in Oman. The light show itself is an exuberant display. I'm curious if there is a deeper meaning to these shows, or are they just entertainment?
I appreciate your sharing this.

I like the colours of this night shot. A good fisheye perspective. It would have even better if the rocks on the right side of the picture will be complete on the view.
