The end of another day in Istanbul at the Tophane tram station along the Bosphorus. Taken at sunset at the start of the blue hour a couple of weeks before Spring starts in ernest which is why the trees are still bare.

La lumière de fin de journée donne de belles couleurs sur la mosquée. C'est du travail soigné.
Amitiés et bonne fin de journée.

Une très belle photo de cette Mosque dans la sumptous lumière du petit soir. L'utilisation du filtre polarizer à bien payé ici, les couleurs sont extraordinaire.

Bonsoir, cher Chris,
La lumière augmente la beauté de l'édifice. Le choix du cadrage valorise les dômes et les subtilités architecturales.
Sujet très bien présenté.

Excellent view of the mosque with its architectural details nicely framed by the trees on both sides. The sky with the beautiful evening glow makes a lovely backdrop.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

nice "bluish hour" photo of a charming - but rarely photographed - mosque: kilic ali pasa.
i find it strange that we never even bothered about considering to hold a TE meeting. i think we should do that before you leave for another country.

The trees are helping to frame the Mosque. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the Mosque. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Jolie lumière de fin de journée sur la mosquée; J'aurais peut-être essayé de redresser l'image pour éviter ce minaret très penché?

a tantalising shot of this beautiful mosque. Like the way you have framed it and caught it in such golden light. A gentle feel and mood about it and of course superbly clear and detailed. Wonderful!
Have a great week - B.

I like the point of vew and the framing offered by the leafless trees. The light is quite sublime, bringing out the warm tones in the architecture beautifully. Excellent sharpness.
Thanks for taking the time to draw a list of sights for my visit to HK and OZ. I think it will prove very useful.

Quel beau point de vue sur la Mosquée.La contre plongée donne beaucoup d'ampleur et utilise parfaitement le beau ciel de fin de journée comme arrière plan.

As the artificial lights set in, the mosque looks beautiful in the pink hour. As I see, it has one minaret...is it so?...have not seen a mosque as such..
Beautifully framed by the barren trees. Very beautiful!

nicely cropped image with the copulas of the mosque beautifully lit by the sun rays. The colors captured in here are wonderful and you managed the light beautifully. The whole image gains a lot from the dark branches which frame it naturally and in subtle way.
Thanks for sharing

This one of Tophane Mosque in taken in blue hour is also very nice.
The natural framing on left and right part with leafless trees is also perfect.
TFS and best regards

Wonderful golden light on this Tophane Mosque.
The bare trees add a good frame,

complimenti per il soggetto, la bella luce che lo illumina e la particolare composizione che ne mette in evidenza le belle forme geometriche.
Molto buona anche la nitidezza che aggiunge ulteriore magia alla foto.
Ciao e buona serata

I like very much how all the elements in this composition rise simultaneously within the frame. The almost silhouetted bare trees frame the sweetly illuminated mosque very elegantly. The warm tones are really delightful, the pale sky and the dark patterns of the trees set them off in a special way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Waylim (25368) 2014-04-18 14:05
A beautiful shot. I love how you incorporated the natural elements of the tree branches into a really good composition. It frame the mosuqe nicely and provides depth to the image. Love the tiem of day with warm light and soft pastel sky.
