[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the many famous and huge mosques in Malaysia, the Masjid Putra is obviously one of the most photographed one. Situated at the heart of Putrajaya - Malaysia's center of government, it is also named as the Pink Mosque as evident from its huge colored dome.

Way too much saturation added here, Donnie.
I think the shot is spoilt by the exaggerated colours, and it now looks like something a holiday advertising agency would've used in their colour brochures of the 70's.

The scene and your chosen point of view along with the composition and framing of the subject itself would've been sufficient to make a pretty enough picture.

Call me old fashioned if you will, but too much bling for my liking.

Hi Donnie. Sorry, I have to agree with Martin ... just far too saturated. The composition of the photo is very nice, and there's lots of interest with the mosque and the waterfront walkway and garden, and the city in the background. The spires of the mosque are nicely off-center, and the curved water/river takes our eye into the shot. In my opinion though, the colors just need to come down quite a lot.

Beautifully composed and great color.
