Today photo of the Day is Masjid Sultan in Singapore. What makes it so special, to me anyway, its located in a street called “Muscat Street”. Yes the Singaporian, named the street after our own Capital Muscat. The Mosque is located at Muscat Street and North Bridge Road within the Kampong Glam district of Rochor Planning Area in Singapore. The mosque is considered one of the most important mosques in Singapore.
The prayer hall and domes highlight the mosque’s star features. With its massive golden dome and huge prayer hall, the Sultan Mosque is one of Singapore’s most impressive religious buildings, and the focal point of Muslims in Singapore. The mosque was first built in 1824 by Sultan Hussain Shah, the first sultan of Singapore. The main prayer hall can hold up to 5,000 worshipers, and is one of the biggest and most amazing religious structures in Singapore
In this photo I had to use HDR (High Dynamic Range) technique, as it was bright sunny day and the angle I wanted to take didnt allow me for a smooth exposure. Not to mention I wanted the clouds to show, and to do that I was forced to eitherget an under exposed photo practically hiding the entire mosque, and if I wanted to show the mosque, than the clouds would be completely washed out. So the only option I had was to take three Photos at different exposure and combined them together later during processing.
Hope you like it, let me know what you think and if you have any comments or question. Thanks!
