The Tin Mal Mosque is a mosque located in the High Atlas mountains of North Africa. It was built in 1156 to commemorate the founder of the Almohad dynasty, Mohamed Ibn Tumart. It is one of the two mosques in Morocco open to non-Muslims, the other being the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca. The prototype for the Tin Mal mosque was the Great Mosque of Taza (near Fès), also built by Abd al-Mu'min. The Koutoubia in Marrakech was in its turn modelled on it.
This mosque is out of order since many years,there is no roof and minaret,beeing restaured,but right now ,not used to pray.

Une présentation peu commune pour cet effet graphique

I really like this B&W version - your framing is also very good.
I particularly like how one arch follows another - guides us through the shot wonderfully,
Thank you for sharing

I like your composition with a strong perspective effect.

Things working for the photograph are its composition, BW medium, sharpness and so wonderfully capturing the pattern.
This photograph really stands out.
Thanks for sharing.

Really fascinating. What a tremendous use of DOF. I can see almost to the end of the mosque.

A splendid architecture presented very well. Appealing symmetrical composition and DOF as well! Thanks for sharing. Best wishes, Malgorzata

Graphic and enjoyable. The effect is one of endless architecture, and the off-centre presentation, and the hard b&w take the shot away from "the obvious".

Beau noir et blanc et connaissant cet endroit et cette mosquée j'apprécie d'autant le superbe effet de profondeur auquel tu es parvenu.

I like this one, because of the pov that offeres a perfect symmetry of the arches and also the b&w. Good work!
