Belle idée de composition entre la forme du jet d'eau et le minaret: les 2 équilibrent bien la composition et se font écho.

This is an unusual photo of a popular subject. Good composition with the purple fountain in the foreground and the orange minarets behind the trees. The planet (Venus?) in the sky is a nice touch.
