This is one of the symbols of Istanbul, the Blue Mosque, seen from one of the parks surrounding it. The whole place is one of architectural wonders of the world, with places like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Basilica Cistern located so close to each other.

Another excellent shot of this very iconic place of Istanbul, where I love to visit one day. I'm not sure I like the water taking away to much attention. I'm sure you have other shots without the water. Looking forward to see more. Beautiful light, the shadow area is a little bit dark, less contrast maybe will help, perhaps the camera is try to compensate for the bright water that you included in the POV. Other than that, a good image showing the garden with local and tourist alike enjoying their day. TFS.

I am also posting shots from my Turecko trip!
Good POV on Blue Mosque. I like the sense of dynamic of the fountain on the right sight.
nice lifefull shot

Absolutnie piękna kompozycja. Budowa zdjęcia bardzo misterna.
Plany rozrysowałeś genialnie.
No i to miejsce, te kolory... Zadziwiają gołe drzewa w marcu - ja naiwnie sądziłem że u Turków wiecznie jest zielono.
Ale widać że małe mam o Konstantynopolu pojęcie... Przynajmniej za gorąco nie miałeś!

I like the parallel between the water and the towers of the mosque,but I am not sure about the way you have framed!Maybe it would have been more beautiful to let some place on the right of the water!But it was a nice idea!I like the bird near the tower,small but nice detail!
