We had a gorgeous gold-colored sunset on that evenening of December so i shot a few frames from my vantage point along the Deira side of the Creek ,for this one i zoomed in on that part where domes and mosque minarets were visible against the warm sun ,the whole panorama took on a special golden glow .This one was taken a few seconds after one i already posted on the site in early January ,you can see it here.

Hi Carol

Very nice shot! Colors and composition and great and IMO the black border is adding a lot of value in this photo. Position of sun is very well managed. Great job!

Warm and beautifully composed. Love to see those selheoutte of Mosque in different shapes with a flock of Seaguls flying around. Your composition is top nouch.



a very dramatic shot, with the seagulls around the silhoute made it very interesting.a small nitpick is the visible white around the silhoute ,i believe this due to the sharpening.Composition well done.

Hi Carol.
This is a beautiful image with selective framing. The details of the minarets and domes against the setting sun is stunning. I like the wide sky with birds hovering looking for homes. Well crafted shot and please allow me to add to my personal themes.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
