In Saudi Arabia.
What a rich deep blue the sky is and the mosque's colors against it are magnificient. Such beautiful architect. Looks like a picture out of the Arabian Nights or Aladdin.

@Mandy Provan: Many thanks, Mandy.
THis photo has very strong colors, I have read the other comments, how did you adapt this photo ( or did you not?) with Photoshop? Looks like a postcard!
21 Sep 2008 12:53pm
@Denise: Thank you, Denise. The photo is an HDR which combines three images. I then worked on it in Photoshop and adjusted highlights/shadows and curves then added a very small amount of texture.
Phenomenal, I love how you took it, such a sense of history and photographic wisdom ;)

@Lorraine: Thanks, Lorraine. I don't know about "photographic wisdom" (I chuckled at your use of words here remembering that I've thought on many occasions you could earn a living writing blog comments.). When I took the image, it certainly wasn't wise to step off the curb. There was some kid about 12 years old in a car practising those squealing power turns using his hand break so I had to be quick because I was out in the road shooting and all I could hear was squeal, squeal, squeal.
I like the texture of this image...beautifully framed!

I love your processing of this very striking image, Michael.
I used the Cooliris program to see what I missed during the week and I love the "Cunning kitty hiding amid the flowers" ....... Gabriela would love this one too!
21 Sep 2008 9:13pm
@Judy: Thank you, Judy. Yes I know how much Gabriela loves both flowers and kitties.
It's already been said, but once again, it's a great image.

Good God, that's just about the sweetest compliment I've ever received, thanks so much...since I'm retired now and desperately missing work I'll call myself a 'Blog Comment Consultant'...man I like that ;)
and like I said photographic wisdom, you got out of the way AFTER taking the shot, didn't you lol
22 Sep 2008 6:14am
@Lorraine: I had to get out the way before I was run over. Thanks, Lorraine. I like the way your lively personality always comes through in your comments.
j'aime cette photo, de toi, mais aussi, l'imitation de la texture du papier superbe!
22 Sep 2008 7:44am
@Aurore: Merci, Aurore.
I like the clear blue sky and teh texture. something about it also suggests that it is out of bounds for the viewer.. could be my impression!
22 Sep 2008 12:10pm
@Radel: Not really out of bounds. It's just new and not used yet. thank you, Radel.
Looks like a postcard. Very nicely framed against a powder blue sky.

@AC: Thank you very much, AC.
