My third from the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
This one shows one of several rows of columns. The marble floor is vastly decorated with semi precious stones in lovely patterns and soft attractive colors. To walk down an isle like these is a very special experience. I went there early in the morning to avoid the masses of visitors.
I hope You enjoy it.

An outstanding shot indeed !
Not often that we see such shots on TE
I just regret that the image is too high with the new sizes allowed on TE, we cannot see it globally without scrolling down or up
Bravo, have a nice WE

What a lovely interior picture, what a nice floor and golden light at the columns.
An architect is an artist, certainly these man that drawing this splendid interior.
Perspective and depth picture make these picture attractive.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

What a place, and what a capture! From an architectural point of view, this place is truly magnificent, the columns like a beautiful forest of immaculate white carvings. You took a beautiful point of view on the place, with the excellent framing in the foreground, and the light falling in a very magical way across the forest of columns. It almost looks as if the light is emanating from the columns themselves.
A beauty of a capture, thanks for sharing your photo and knowledge of this amazing place.
All the best

hi gojo. i am always happy to see that my favourite TE members are not my favourites in vain. there is always something stunning to find, and there we are again. good use of TE huge size. yes, i needed to scroll down but it is ok :) now you made me jealous and searching for cheap flight tickets to UAE. i could do some babbling about symmetry and a slight overexposure, but you already know these, so i keep mute.

what a brilliant perspective without any deformation though you used a wide angle from the ground level. We can admire the pattern on the floor and ceiling, and this amazing soft light; good idea to wake up early!

A picture perfect study in depth and perspective is how I can describe your splendid photo.
I feel beautiful places always throw a challenge to the photographer..you have to make it look more attractive. I believe you have successfully met that demand.
Thanks for sharing.

Nice shot with a good perspective effect and a good framing looking to the inclusion of the drawing on the floor in foreground.
If I am not wrong (but difficult to exclude optical pertubation effect), it seems there is a little tilt toward left.

Hello Goran - A temple of light, how magical this is. I love the airy feel of this shot, the white and gold and delicate tendrils climbing up the pillars look so pure and the never-ending layers of pillars and arches are just stunning. Warm regards Rosemary

I have gazed at this for many seconds.
It is utterly pristine, utterly beautiful!
Your viewpoint makes great use of the converging lines and the receding pillars to give a sense of depth and perspective.
The reflection in the floor tiles relate much about their textures!
My only suggestion would be to correct the slight slant on the pillars. It is simple to do in PS. If you don't know how to do it I can offer advice.
Have a great w/e,

Great architecture and interior, good angle and result with impressive depth, exposure is well managed as the sharpness, tfs.

Wow!!!! Grandiose (and rich)!
carlo62 (23622) 2013-12-13 11:41
questo tuo scatto è veramente bello ed elegante.
C'è una splendida prospettiva, molto efficace grazie alle linee del pavimento e dei colonnati.
Ottima esposizione e bei colori.
chawax (17584) 2013-12-13 12:22
Very good POV that uses very well the perspective lines to add depth. I love the contrast of shadowed and lighted areas in the columns. Good sharpness too.
marina7 (8005) 2013-12-13 12:36
now that's a stunner! The perspective is mind-boggling.. Airy, lacy and etherial... Love this heavenly light. I regret having skipped it when in Abu Dhabi and enjoying it only from the outside.. spectacular place!
My sincere compliments on your exceptional work.
Have a great weekend!

Kia ora Goran,
a tremendous interior shot which brings out the full beauty of this magnificent mosque. Cheers, Neil
worldcitizen (6113) 2013-12-13 17:20
This interior is simply gorgeous. I like all of the many fine details, and the repetitive arches and columns. You handled the lighting very well, and the sun made nice patterns on the ground. The decoration on the ground that you included in the foreground is a very effective lead-in, too.
Corry (4068) 2013-12-13 20:04
C'est impressionnant de voir toutes ces rangées de colonnes avec dorure qui se reflètent sur le plancher luisant. Belle perspective et profondeur. Bravo.
tatadalou (4615) 2013-12-14 0:02
Gorgeous perspective ! The perfect symmetry added to the impressive amount of columns give a real impression of depth. Best regards,

Totally magical place. Breathtaking view.
Thank you for sharing it.
Nicou (111230) 2013-12-14 7:03
De toute beauté c'est merveilleux ce rendu sur le sol la perspective ce tons et dessin au sol qui ramènent à ceux du sommet la touche dorée splendide.
Belle soirée et merci.
ourania (22684) 2013-12-14 8:12
what a majestic setting! The light is fantastic and has given it a very special atmosphere. The play of perspectives, the depth and the sharpness of your picture are exquisite. The colour palette seems limited but there's a great tonal richness. Our glance is gliding through the architectural patterns in a most enjoyable way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,
emka (68516) 2013-12-14 10:29
Hi Goran, This white mosque is a photographers haven. it is so different mosque than I have ever seen (and I saw quite many) and in the same time with typical elements. Amazing shape of arches and incredible perspective.
Warm regrads malgo
Cricri (96885) 2013-12-15 10:53
L'intérieur est aussi beau que l'extérieur, une belle richesse d'architecture blanche, la décoration magnifique que ce soit du sol au plafond, les structures dorées, la brillance et profondeur, magnifique réalisation
