Good for you! Some nice photos from less easy to access place there. It's good to have a website to promote your work and if you can snag a sale or two all the better. Best of luck

One comment, I get a "not secure" warning when I visit. I don't know much about websites, something to do with not being "https" I guess?

About security: google promote secure websites so, for that, must be installed a SSL certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) on website..
Anyway, I like the website.
Good luck
 :)

Your images are gorgeous. I looked around a little and I noticed that you have a tab on your front page that says "Free" but which shows images which are rights managed and not free. Perhaps you meant to have a different heading for that section?

I also thought I'd price one of the rights managed images and (a) the options don't really work well for web uses or editorial uses and (b) the prices seem very high when you compare with Getty. Your work is not run of the mill stuff, so it should command a premium, but if I wanted to use an image in an editorial on a web site for an international audience (all web use is inherently international) I'm looking at nearly $1,000 which I think means that most will look elsewhere. A small use on a corporate web site ends up being almost the same price as the cover of a retail book.  And for web users, how do you pick 1/8 of the ad, 1/4 of ad, etc?

Good luck with your site

Great Photos and a rare niche. One observation: I think you should take any color away from your watermark cause it interferes whith the composition of some photos, especially in the smaller thumbnails.

I wish the best of luck!

Cool and unique shots. I'm certainly not allowed in Mecca :)

One advice would be to get closer to the worshipers, if possible. I see a lot of wide angle stuff which is great but to tell a more complete story you may need to focus on the individuals more.

Dear Madam,First of all thanks a lot for your detailed review of my site! :)
I really appreciate your kind words and suggestions !
I am not finish all of my categories and just continuing my uploads. I will check all of them and really take care of the price Tariff, RM license issue, web image size etc.
Also planning to make more low price for RF &  RM licensed images and some Image Package in special prize.
Thanks a lot again!  :)

Thanks brother! :)
Yes..it is a Sacred place for Muslims only...! :) <3
I agree with your suggestion...But those places are not allowed professional Photography..(Only with the Authorization letter..but hard to get!)
Usually Muslims pilgrims (Especially old aged pilgrims) not like to get photographed when they perform prayer. The truth is It is very difficult to handle that situation! :D
But I am working here 19 years +...So got many chances to take shots.
I had some photos on Editorial license with showing People Figure. Please check when you get some free time!

Thanks again and best regards! :)
