This is a different view from the AyaSofia in the Sultanhamet area of Istanbul. I wanted to try a different posting which may better enhance the shape of the Basilique with its thin minarets especially their highness. To do so, I tried to include as much as possible of the pool of the garden to include more light and reflection.
No cropping, USM applied.

A photograph of night magnifiquement carried out, great art! Sumptuous reflections and a framing which is it as much. Cheer
Une photo de nuit magnifiquement réalisée, du grand art ! Des reflets somptueux et un cadrage qui l'est tout autant. Bravo

Splendid work of this monumental building.
The photo which gives a special feeling to a viewer.
The pool with fantastic light reflection is great point for composition.
Congratulation for this great work.

Great colors! Good deep blue caption at dusk hour. The AyaSofia is a bit overexposed, but the exposure of the pool is well balanced.
Good night shot!

Amazing shot of this place. The choice of a vertical frame permits to show us various beautiful areas surrouding the main subject : the water with its nice reflections and a deep blue and naked sky. The exposure time provides the right amount of light to define the details of the cathedral. Very beautiful !

Hi,What a nice style of looking.I impressed.
But if distance of minarets were same,it would be perfect

Heureusement qu'il n'y avait pas trop de vent, ça vous aurait gâché la photo. Les couleurs sont vraiment superbes.

And you did quite well: I was also there a couple of weeks ago, at the same blue hour.. This one is really good, there are some problems in the area, (Not the photo )because of the thick trees which block the Hagia Sophia..
Cheers - Izzet

Hi Steven. Brilliant work, not only in terms of colour but also composition.The curve of the pool has added a touch of elegance by its curviture and has become literally a pool of light. Lovely. Regards. Klaudio.
