I personally feel that it is a question of depiction rather than representation.
You could only capture something that was designed by the architect as such.
Regarding the photo, it appears that a little cropping could help. The crescent going up right to the top margin and a little crop from below may enhance the effect of the minaret. It will also remove the vignetting from the top left corner. But that is a personal opinion
Been in Dubai for some time. Which part of the city is this from?
