The Museum of Islamic Art, which opened in 2008, was designed by IM Pei. It is built on an artificial island off Doha’s Corniche and houses a really impressive collection of art and artefacts from the Islamic world. Its design incorporates various elements from traditional Islamic architecture. Here you might notice the top of the building resembling a woman's veil.
One of the best museums I've ever visited, actually.
Very state of the art!
This picture show the walkway to the museum's entrance.
You'll find more shots of this location in my gallery.

a crisp and sharp composition. A great perspective and a wonderful mix of straight lines and light. The human element gives a sense of scale, it is an intriguingly shaped building.
Have a great week - Brian.

Een sterke en bijna minimalstische weergave van ruimte en bouwvolumes hier.
En altijd weer interessant om te zien hoe IM Pei in zijn architectuur met de locale/culturele context omgaat.
Door de titel zie ik ineens een rapper in de wandelaar.
Groeten uit Rotterdam,

Excellent low POV accentuates the perspective here so well. I like the neutral colours, which allow us to concentrate more on the shapes and perspective. Excellent sharpness and definition. The inclusion of the man on the left was a great tough, giving the photo character and dynamism.
Thanks for sharing, enjoy your weekend

The POV has captured the graphic shapes and lines beautifully. The colours and sharpness are first class and the man walking out of the picture gives an original and refreshing picture.
Kind Regards, Ann
