I love the contrast between the gold and the blue.
I wonder if perhaps the gold is a bit dominant. If the shot had more blue I think it would have been better balanced.
Lovely shot though.
Well done!

nice detail
beautil light and colours
well done

Hi Mas,
Nice shot! Well chosen composition, just the gold and the blue/white/red mosaic. Nice frame as well. TFS

Well taken architecture detail...

Hi Marcel,
your crop is splendid and gives even more impact to the majestic beauty of this high religious place of Jerusalem. Painful history between two religions which never seem to be able to find a means of cohabiting. That made very badly with the people who wish only to see the world in peace.
Your frame is superb to emphasize the details of architecture and its power.
Heartily, Corinne
