Your color palette and clarity here are superb. I particularly love that black topper against that blue.

Looks like a great piece of architecture. Hard to believe it is a market.

A beautiful entrance against a stunning blue sky!

You always come up with the most intriguing photos. When I first looked at this, I thought it was a church - with a steeple...

Marketing building? Maybe they built it like a church to get a blessing for their marketing?

Excellent photo of a beautiful entrance.

Quite characteristic structure with seemingly a mix of styles.

You did it. I never managed to get photos as clear as this. It's always lacks of 'this' and too 'that' *sighs*

Dina said...

That's a market? Wow!
About the exact opposite of our simple, open-air market (which I just posted, with monks looking at fish).
And your sky in today's post is gorgeous.

To be honest, it does not look like a market place, rather a tiny church. Nice design.
