      Defintely prefer the B&W version as it allows me to concentrate on the subject matter. Although I must say the tones in the color version are AMAZING and soooo rich! Excellent shot all over!

      I like the B&W version better by a - well by a mile!!

      It's way better - you did the conversion very well.

      To much to distract in the colour one (like the colour of the carpet) here the attention is very much on the praying woman and her hands.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Islam Around the World, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      I manage the “Islam Around the World” Flickr group for America.gov. The group asks you to share your images or create new ones that complete the phrase, “Islam is… Tell us what Islam means to you in your life, your city, and your country. Please add your photographs to our group and describe in the caption box what your image is about. We’d like to share as many of these images as possible on our blog, our website and our Facebook page. If you’d like us to include your photos among those we share elsewhere, please remove any copyright restrictions and let us know how you’d like to be credited.

      Invitation to join new photo project.

      Thank you for sharing your image with the “Islam Around the World” Flickr group for America.gov. The goal of the group is to create an image of Islam that is diverse, strong and vibrant which at times seems to have become lost with the current global political situation.

      We are preparing a new project and would like to invite you to participate. We are planning to select the best 25 photographs from the group and turn them into an online photography slide show with music and quotes from the photographers and possibly a few well know poets and authors about cultural tolerance and expression as well as our responsibility as global citizens. This slide show will be placed on America.gov’s Talking Faith blog, American international embassies and made available for anyone who would like to distribute the show for its intended purpose to promoting a positive image of Islam.

      If you would like to participate please send me a high resolution (no more than 10 MB) file of your photograph to gov.america@yahoo.com Please include in the body of the email how you would like to be credited and what country you are from.

      Include a paragraph or two about the image and what is say’s about Islam. Include your thoughts about cultural tolerance and or our responsibility as global citizens to respect all cultures and what Islamic culture contributes to this idea.

      It is our hope that if this project does well, it will be translated into many languages and turned into a poster show that will be sent to American embassies world wide to be distributed in coffee shops, schools and other appropriate venues.

      Thanks so much
      Jason

      Shukran! I used the photo in an Examiner article here: www.examiner.com/examiner/x-8519-Ann-Arbor-Islamic-Issues...

      It fits well with the story, mashaAllah.

      Thanks again.
