    Ah! Repetition as one element of your photo. Reflection as a second. And the play of light and shadows as a third. All elements that I like very much!

    And thank you for adding the info on this mosque.
    It is so new? Only officially opened in 2007? Wow.

    It's really funny to see this posted. I just read an article about this mosque a few days ago. The article had two pictures in it and talked about the beauty of it more than anything. The two pictures that they showed didn't do much justice to it.

    I love this shot, though. Would have been a much better shot for the article.

    If I can find it online I'll post a link to it, if not I may scan it and throw it up sometime.
