What a wonderful image of this Mosque Jan. The repeating doorways are so pleasing along with nice tones and exposure.

May I make a suggestion though? And it's fine if you don't agree with me. I don't generally like to critique peoples contest entries. It's just that I like this so much!

Have you tried cropping off the left side of the image..just into the shadow of the arch? As it is, the wall is a bit out of perspective and slightly distracting by not being straight, but if you crop just inside the shadow it looks straight! Plus cropping a bit off the left side will move the doorways (main area of interest/subject) a bit off-center from the image, thereby making the composition fit the rule of thirds more closely.

I simulated the crop viewing it full size at this site by just moving the web page over and really liked how that looked. It seems to lead the eye just a bit better.

JUST A THOUGHT! Great image either way.

Respectfully, Heather #14012
