Photographer's Note

This is not a mosque - it is the Turkish bath on an island in the lake below the Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg. The Russian tsars didn't do things by halves, and they probably had a horse and carriage ready anytime, should they want to make the mile long journey through the park to the bath house. It still is a beautiful place, although this particular building hasn't been renovated yet.
I rotated the image slightly, cropped, resized, added a bit of contrast and enhanced the colours slightly. I also sharpened a little bit, but all this is a trial and error exercise with every photo, and you never know exactly what is needed to make the photo presentable on the screen.
