What interested me to photograph the As-Shariff masjid, beyond its elegant architecture, was its vibrant yellow coat of paint against the deep blue sky in the early morning. My lens was fitted with a polarizer filter to accentuate the blue color of the sky as well as to enhance the contrast between the deep blue sky and the white cloud.
