photoblog image Grand Mosque - Abu Dhabi

Grand Mosque - Abu Dhabi

I couldn't decide which image to post first, but, given that I live in Abu Dhabi, I thought to share a pic of the Grand Mosque. 

An absolutely amazing building, it's the third largest in the world (behind only those in Mecca and Medina).  It's also open to non-Muslims (unlike those in Mecca and Medina), so my wife and I visited when my parents were in town.

The challenge with the kit lens, really, is that on a 1.6 APC-S, 28mm just isn't wide enough to capture a lot of landscape/architecture work.  Maybe too much tilt?

In the days/weeks to follow, I'll post some of my previous work (including wedding work - as a second shooter, modeling shoots, and a few from JH and the rest of the USA!).

I love the angle you shot on to include more of the building. What a great sky to go with the pure white of the mosque.
I think, perhaps, I would have concentrated on some part of the building - that bit over on the left with the colonnade of arches looks interesting smile
Tom - I've got a good shot of the arches I'll put up in the not so distant future.

Stay tuned!
