Hi Syed,
interesting shot, I like the colours in the carpet from the overhead light, the end of the passageway is a little OE but well done

If you can burn down the door(?) at the end of the building or maybe reshoot at different times.

Hey Syed, Very Perfect shot, very impressive mosque. I tried to bring some detail and highlight control with my workshop. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Syed, I see you used the flash so I'm guessing it was a little darker at your end of the passageway.Not the easiest when there is plenty of light at the other end.Like the light patterns on the carpet. Fiona
