-The Beauty of Islamic Architecture - (Full Colours Only + Border + Title watermark)

Challenge has finished
Take a dayshot of an Islamic styled building (not just a small part of the wall or ceiling) from the outside showing the building and hopefully some surroundings. It is preferable not to have people in the shot. However if that cannot be avoided, then kindly keep the people elements to a minimum. (limit is 5%of the photo area). Put a Border and Title Watermark on the photograph itself. Photo can be taken with any camera, i.e DSLR, SLR, Mirrorless, Compact, Smartphone, etc... Sunset/sunrise shots are acceptable provided they are not those silhouette type of shots. Kindly provide some brief explanation should the building not have easily identifiable / obvious Islamic references. Each member may submit 3 entries and each must be a different building.
