Barjeel..

The Barjeel is an architecture shape which used to be built on the top of the old houses in the UAE, to insert the air to the house, we can say that it is the old Air conditioning system of the UAE (United Arab Emirates)..
the shape of the barjeel is built in a way which enables the air to hit it and move towards the house..
nowadays, its not used anymore, they only use it's shape to add some old beauty, or to give a heritage look to the buildng..

this is a little family of 3 barjeels .. enjoy

Both are great. I like your almost abstract composition in the first one - especially with the orange sky. The lights/shadows are great on the 2nd one. Well done.
