Hello Dubaiphil,

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?

Regards,

Hi Jagadish

I deliberately kept this as just a snapshot, rather than concentrating on cropping etc.

This is from Bur Dubai and is a mosque between the Dubai Museum and Textile Souk.
