very pretty image and very literal
a 7 from me
nothing really to comment on in a detracting way, but nothing that would elevate this to a higher score either

endless stories in the reflections of deep blue...

Not to pick nits, but "The Thousand Nights and a Night" isn't a novel, it's a collection of stories woven together.

That said, clearly the image IS from the Middle East and it IS night, and it's nicely put together technically. Looks like a magical place. 6 from me.

Spectacular night shot. What gorgeous reflections

It sure is surely taken "somewhere over there", but it's a postcard, albeit a good one. In the context of DPC and this particular challenge it presents no real interest to me. It's a shoehorn. 5 for effort

7...excellent exposure and definitely a sense of place. As far as telling me something of the novel, I see only a nod to the title. It is a very well crafted image though.

Yes, this does look Arabian and it is night. Otherwise, it's an overly symmetrical urban landscape photo with very little energy. 2

it is a beautiful shot indeed but I think is more modern that to be fit for the this book!

a passable view at night of a possibly once Moorish locale. possibly punny, but I regret missing the flavour of the work. 3

The location seems right and the reflections are lovely. 6

Not sure I see the connection to the story, outside of architecture. I like the reflection on the water and the subtle ripples, and the just after sundown blue really looks nice. Would have rated higher in a different challenge. 6

Good image, depicts an Arab environment. Dubai could be a nice place for some but me it look unreal and quite soulless in the modern areas, including the one depicted. My point of view. I rate it 6 for technicality

The setting may suit the title well, but it doesn't have much story to tell. In a night photography challenge, I would have rated it much higher. 6 for now.

I like the imagery of the light reflections looking like sword blades and the colours. A little too modern a scene for my concepts of old Arabia, but that says more about me. Well executed night shot all the same.5.

I like your image. Not voting on it. I like the calm water and the reflection. The colors are nice too.

Outstanding reflection.

I can see how this might be viewed as the title given. But there's something off, I can't quite figure out.
Nice reflection. But just a plain shot to me. Gave it a 4

Its a clear night shot. Connection to the title is limited to nil.5.

Most beautiful reflections on the water, and the splash of blue on the tower! Beautiful take and restraint on the processing.
