    I'm no street photographer but I grabbed these 2 at the Grand Mosque in Dubai. I could have edited out the security guard but I like the fact he was sitting down and and uninterested in the events around him in contrast to the respectful lady walking into shot. But maybe i'm wrong, over to you.

    The framing of the spires? in the first is great, Dave.

    Really love this type of architecture visually and you have captured it beautifully. The first is composed perfectly and as Steve says tells a story.

    They are called minarets, it’s where the call to prayer is broadcast from. Interestingly only one person is used for the call to prayer at the Grand Mosque and his voice is broadcast through speakers from other mosques around Abu Dhabi.

    The framing was deliberate the rest was right place right time, after she walked through the frame about 4000 tourists flooded the place.

    As everyone else is saying, first pic has beautiful composition. It's like the architecture is receiving the searing azure sky & all that arid heat, mixing it all up, cooling it, toning it down a few shades, adding some ripples, and thus chilling it out in its reflection on the marble floor, out of which grows the people, so it's like the architecture transmutes the environment into something human.

    As for the second pic l would have just had the colonnades, the poole, the grass, but nothing above that or to the left or right as there's something going on with the left hand side being in shadow that feels grating to the senses. The perspective on the colonnades is great.

    Liking the first very much. I suspect the lack of comments on the second is that unfortunately he's looking/facing out of the shot instead of into it. Photoshop him (and his shadow) over to the right? :exit:

    Better still, perhaps, remove him?

    Two lovely shots and I like the exposure. First is superb though with so many things to notice as you study the photograph more like the two people on the right (the left person is clearly the lead in), the reflections, wall details and so on.
