On holiday in Hisoronu, Turkey. i walked passed the Mosque a few times and spotted that in the afternoon the sun shone through the amber glass in the minaret on top of the mosque giving a vibrant golden glow.
i tried to get the sun directly behind the minaret to exaggerate the impact.

Very beautiful image, the mineret makes such a striking silhouette, while your idea to illuminate the glass top has worked beautifully and created a very eye catching image. The strong deep shadow and wonderful golden glow compliment each other perfectly. Very nicely done.

A challenging shot no doubt. I like the lighting effect! and nothing can beat sunlight at its best to enhance this back lit minaret. Good exposure control and the colours are amazing. Real cool! Congrats
