Looking on the other side of the Sultanhamet garden, one can discover the Blue Mosquee. She was named after the 20,000 mainly blue stained glasses which are allow the light to enter the praying area inside.
During the shot, there were an historic show with music and lights explaing how the gardens and the Mosquee was built between 1609 and 1616 just in front of the Agya Sofia cathedral I already presented you. In the lower part, you can see the enlighten wall which shows the limit between the Mosquee and the gardens. As you may guess from here, the volume of the Mosquee is huge and once inside, I was really breathtaken by its beauty and the decorations.

Lovely colors and tones here, Steven! You might try to "correct" the keystoning in the image, simply because I can't see that it adds to the image any. I like the composition and exposure here.

I remember the last picture you've taken of this place. This one is already good with the choice of taking it by night. It gives us nice articial light thats focus on the various shapes of this particula architecture. The blue of the sky is great and gives contrast to increase the sight of this cathedral. Very well done !
