Topkapi Palace was residence of the sultans, administrative seat of the Ottoman Empire for almost 400 years, and the source of legend on life in the harem.
The Harem, a maze of 400 halls, terraces, rooms, wings, and apartments grouped around the sultan's private quarters, evokes all the exoticism and mysterious ways of the Ottoman Empire. Now, only 20 rooms have been restored and open to the public, including stunning tile work.

Impressive decorations on the old walls. The presence of the girl brings the needed dynamic. Well taken scene.

Very good presentation of the magnificent tiles and the beautiful calligraphy.
Nice with the girl catching a glimpse of this chamber.
Best regards, Paul

bellissima piastrellatura, colori splendidi e disegni che creano un'atmosfera optical.
Mi piace anche la presenza della persona.

Hi Tiffany. Brilliant image with its intricate ornamentation and superb clarity and light. personally I don't find that the presence of the girl does much for the feel of the place. I know that we cannot arrange the sort of person we want in our composition- a local woman would have been more preferable, but maybe sometimes less is more.Best wishes. Klaudio.
