A nice week-end in Andalusia where I visited Sevilla and Cordoba with my wife and two friends.
This is the Mesquita of Cordoba, an Arabo-Andalus mosquee erected in 785 AD which was turned into a cathedral in the XVIth century.
I was impressed by the presence of oranges in the "Patio de los Naranjos" at that time of the year so I tried to build a composition including them (fill-in flash) and the main tower of the mosquee. This 93 m high tower is also called "Torre del Alminar".
Inside the Mosquee (cathedral now...) you can find an amazing forest of 850 columns which create wonderful perspective effect with red and white tones.

You have chosen a perfect frame for this mezquita.
Very well done,

une excellente prise de vue qui donne une belles perspective, un cadrage super bien étudié et l'utilisation du flash pour éclairer ces fruits, judicieuse.

Very good this one. The composition is superb (you has used the oranges as a frame in a great way) and also the light and the colour.
I like very much. And also you has done a nice note.
Regards from Spain.

Impressive shot, pal.
The present of the orange tree (sometimes it looked a bit "off-line" from the image, probably due to indifferent lighting) provide such good framing.
And the mosque, that's a unique mosque, which looked totally different from ours, are captured in a good angle.
Lovely shot, Steven.
