I was wondering if you were the same photographer who submitted this and I see you are. This one is much improved in quality from the other one. Excellent picture and well deserved ribbon. Would you please submit your settings? It looks like a short exposure in twilight that is very sharp, which are very hard to get all of (fast, bright, sharp; pick two).

An amazing structure and a very beautiful photograph...congratulations on winning the blue ribbon!

Very beautiful picture. Congratulations on your well-deserved ribbon. But how sad that Saudis are so intolerant as to prohibit non-Muslims from visiting this place. I guess that's why I respect Omanis; they welcome everyone to visit their Grand Mosque.

Wealth and spirituality should not go together, but not the case with all religion. The photo is very imposing and subtle lighting go well with religious architecture.

09/21/2007 10:11:16 PM
Great shot !!!
09/21/2007 08:09:40 PM
Great shot - I really like it, but wealth to me is a mundane, of-the-earth thing - as opposed to spirituality - the opposite end of the spectrum for me anyway. 8 for the image :)
09/21/2007 05:47:37 PM
You can't own it
09/21/2007 02:56:03 PM
lovely shot , Great evening , artistic clouds ,,,, Mean's 10
09/21/2007 02:45:12 PM
Well, I want to give it a 10 because it's such a perfect photo. But for the challenge, I'm not getting these 'Religious' type entries as 'Wealth'. It's kinda pushing the envelope for me but I'll still go with a 9.
09/21/2007 01:51:01 PM
love the lights in this shot.
09/21/2007 05:04:56 AM
