A close-up view to show you the style of some of the domes of Tashkent's mosque and madrassa complex. The Hazrati Imam complex is a square that includes a collection of religious buildings in Tashkent in Uzbekistan.
The complex is named after the imam buried in the mausoleum. The square is located in the old part of the capital and includes a series of buildings built in various eras:
the mausoleum of the first Imam of Tashkent Hazrati Imam (whose full name is Abu-Bakr Muhammad Kaffal Shashi).
the madrasa Barak Khan
the Telyashayakh mosque
the Hazroti Imam mosque
the Moyie Mubarek museum library (where the oldest Koran in the world is kept, the Koran of Osman).


Una vista ravvicinata per mostrarvi lo stile di alcune delle cupole del complesso di moschee e madrasse di Tashkent. Il complesso Hazrati Imam è una piazza che comprende un insieme di edifici religiosi di Tashkent in Uzbekistan.
Il complesso prende il nome dall'imam sepolto nel mausoleo. La piazza si trova nella parte vecchia della capitale e comprende una serie di edifici costruiti in varie epoche:
il mausoleo del primo imam di Tashkent Hazrati Imam (il cui nome esteso è Abu-Bakr Muhammad Kaffal Shashi).
la madrasa Barak Khan
la moschea Telyashayakh
la moschea Hazroti Imam
la biblioteca museo Moyie Mubarek (dove è custodito il più antico corano del mondo, il Corano di Osman).

Witaj Luciano!
Beautiful domes, view makes impression.
Excellent frame, colors and sharpness.
Well done.
Good night.

Ciao Luciano
inquadratura precisa e dettagliata, come nel tuo stile.
Le due cupole sono diverse, ma sono diversi anche gli archi sotto e i relativi fregi, un lavoro fatto ad arte.
Buona domenica

Hello Luciano,
Excellent photo of these two domes, they are both beautiful and the fact that their details and design are so different makes a very interesting composition. The details of the decorations around the arches are great as well. Very well captured with good clarity.

Bonsoir Luciano,

La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Mosquée. l'image est claire et nette. La lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.


Hello Luciano,
The designs on these structures are fabulous. It's a pity the light was a bit harsh, but you managed it reasonably well. (You should have visited the place later or earlier.) 👌👌

Zelim vam lep dan, sve najbolje za vieknd, srecno.

Good day.

Salut Luciano,
Bel ensemble architectural avec un intéressant cadrage qui met en valeur ces dômes et leur différence de couverture, belle luminosité idéal pour le rendu des teintes, parfaite netteté pour apprécier tous les détails des décorations.

Hi Ciao dear Luciano

Great cropping makes so imprresive, eye-cathing and dynamic composition as such. Shallow expsore makes wonderfulsharpness for tasty Islamic mozic so vividly.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Luciano,
Excellent photo of these two domes – beautiful composition.
Very good picture with perfect exposure and good color saturation.
Thank you for informative note.
Fine presentation

Bonjour, cher ami Luciano,
Les détails architecturaux sont toujours aussi bien rendus.
Cela force le respect quant au travail réalisé.
Très bon choix de cadrage.

Hello Luciano,
Two beautiful domes of quite different styles but complementing each other beautifully, separated by a slim minaret. It's an elegant composition, nicely cropped and well exposed.
Kind regards,

Hello Luciano,
These tiled domes are really very beautiful and are perfectly suited to the symmetrical framing you have selected. Superb rendering of the colours and the intricate details of the tile work.

Witaj Luciano!

Tashkent is etched in my memory for the horrific earthquake they had in 1966. Good to see a lot of the major buildings have been repaired and rebuilt. It was only 5.1, but the epicentre was right under the city.


Good symmetry of the 2 domes with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

Double domes in two different design and colors, but dominated by the typical turquoise tone, Luciano.
Handled the difficult light with fine manner.
Buona serata,

Both domes are really impressive, two designs but both are beautiful, an excellent photo
regards Ryszard

Hi Luciano.
A great composition with these two so different domes and among them part of the minaret, also the part of tiles on the upper part of the arch of windows are ideal, beautiful effect of straight and curved forms.
Very effective coloring, which highlights the details of the image.
Good management, both brightness and sharpness.
Very well done. I like it.
Enjoy the weekend.
My best wishes for you.

Hi Luciano
A bright and sunny shot; never get bored admiring those domes and the artistic decor of the iwans showing its splendour as represented by this capture. The architecture sparkles with excellent play of shade and shadow, I think the fluted dome clearly is a winner for me. Simply delightful, Congrats
Best regards

I liked the close in the façade of the mosque enhancing the graphical and geometrical visual effect of its shapes. very nice result.

take care


Ciao Lucciano, gran bel taglio con magnifica coppia di cupole, ottima nitidezza e splendidi colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Caro Luciano,

You have photographed these domes and surrounding architecture with excellent clarity so that we we can easily survey their textures and the patterns.
You have also, dealt extremely well with the light. The contrasts of light and shadows on the domes' surfaces creates an effect which is like 3D, a fine sense of depth.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

ciao Luciano,
Voici une magnifique prise de vue sur cette architecture,
Bon cadrage faisant ressortir les détails et le graphisme.
Bonne soirée

Un'architetura molto differente e interessante. Mi piace molto. Che viaggio, no? Congratulazione!

Hello Luciano. Wonderful domes and part of a minaret of Tashkent mosque. Fantastic decorations over the arches. I have several ideas for the tips in autumn, Uzbekistan is one of them. I haven't made a decision yet.

Have a nice new week


Hello Luciano,
A splendid view of the two domes of uneven height that flank the tall minaret.
Wonderful decorations on the dome on the right, on the entrance gates and also on the wall.
Not easy to photograph such large domes without having an overexposed place. The sunlight will always be harsh somewhere. You managed it very well on this photo.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Luciano
again, this country and the surrounding countries bordering it are very interesting to me. I'll have to make a journey here at some point. For obvious reasons the dome on the right is more attractive and more interesting. but both have attractive arches below. fine lighting and excellent exposure all the way through the image. nice one! cheers

Ciao Luciano,

good image of these beautiful domes, I like their shape and colors, it is an interesting detail of this building, well seen,

Best regards,


Ciao Luciano,
I would seriously travel happily all the way just to see these amazing turquoise domes. They are so unique for this region. Spectacular architecture, I like the close up here which allows us to better compare the two domes. Similar but different. Very exotic trip!
Excellent reportage,

Hello Luciano, two different styles of dome, and both equally magnificent.
Excellent sharpness.
Their beauty is matched by the designs around the doorways.
Interesting information.
Regards Jean.

Ciao Luciano, composizione molto bella e interessante con le bellissime cupole, molto ben catturata in questa bellissima immagine, con buona nitidezza, luce, colori e qualità. Lavoro molto buono e interessante fatto perfettamente, le mie congratulazioni amico mio. Grazie per aver condiviso questo bellissimo lavoro.

Buona notte e buon riposo della settimana.
I migliori auguri dal sud della Spagna.
