Sunset from the rooftop terrace of the 7 hills restaurant in Sultanahmet, Istanbul. The sun is setting at right of this image, but I liked the warm golden glow of the clouds here, and the magnificent Sultanahmet or 'Blue' Mosque as a backdrop. The Sea of Marmara is behind the mosque.

an iconic place and this is a beautiful capture of it. The soft light seems to enhance the majesty of this mosque so delicately. Amazing clarity and a striking presentation. Really must visit this City.
Have a great weekend - Brian.

Tu as su magnifier cette très belle mosquée en réussissant à la prendre sans personne autour et sou une lumière magnifique qui fait bien ressortir les détails architecturaux.

The trees are framing well teh Mosque. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the Blue Mosque. The setting sun is giving nice colors to the scene. Have a nice day.

Hello Chris - A crystal clear sunset shot here and although the sky is not as highly coloured as some we see the orange-yellow hue is exactly as I remember it to be. I like the gentle colours here with the deep greens adding in nice weight in the FG. The golden spires make a super bright detail here. Warm regards Rosemary

Belle prise de vue de la Mosquée Bleue au coucher du soleil. Tu as su choisir le bon endroit pour prendre cette photo puisqu'on peut voir l'ensemble du bâtiment et ses 6 minarets. Félicitations.

I can t resist to comment this capture where you managed to show the the great mosque and all the minarets with a good POV
Like the the soft color of the sky, turning golden at the end
An interesting color contrast, grey of mosque and sky and also golden from both and it works well , more with the add of the vegetation at the FG
Have a great weekend

Excellente point de vue sur cette célèbre mosquée. J'aime beaucoup la douce lumière de fin de journée donnant de jolis tons pastels.
macjake (48363) 2013-10-20 1:03
is it just me or does this Blue Mosque remind you of a spider? perhaps i'm going crazy.
For obvious reasons this is certainly one of the worlds finest examples of man made architecture.
doesn't get much better than this.
you chose a sweet time of day to capture it too, soft and attractive lighting.
and i like the brocolli trees along the bottom.

I think architects of yore are more creative than the present creators. Old buildings have more style and more beauty than the new ones. Nice capture of this mosque during sunset with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Superb mellow light especially in the horizon which creates a fine backdrop to the iconic Blue Mosque. I like especially how the golden tops of the domes shin in the light. Excellent!

Such a beautiful image of this famous moques, it has appeared in so many movies in recent years and we have seen plenty of pictures of it, but this one is really special with the beuatiufl sky and sunset light. Love it.

Hi Chris, You founded splendid place for photographing Sultanahmet in this restaurant. Marvelous light and colours of early sunset. Splendid view of the mosque and its six minarets. How nice it must have been to have something in this restaurant with this view. Pity i didn't know about it, i stayed in a hotel not far from this place but with no view like this :( .

a very beautiful picture of this magnificent building at sunset. Your composition is excellent and there's a very fine rhythm within the frame. There's great elegance and harmony too, enhanced by superb rendering of details as well as wonderfully managed soft light, mild and romantic colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
