nikon d300, f5, 1/50sec, 14mm, iso800
after the top shot in my previous post, i walked towards the east wing of the main prayer hall. based on various sources, the sheikh zayed grand mosque was described as a fusion of arab, mughal and moorish architecture. the carpet you see in the photo is currently the largest in the world which measures 7,119 m² and weighs 47 tonnes.
the number of visitors were already increasing by the minute and getting a shot without people was critical. instead of waiting to let them disappear, i waited a little longer to get a silhouette shot against the bright window/door. the ray of light was just a bonus.
lesson of this shot: patience is a virtue even if you can’t afford to have it.
