Süleymaniye Camii (Grand Mosque) taken from a ferry on the Bosphorous.
It is difficult to comprehend that this building is over 460 years old. At 60 metres in height, the roofline and minerets tower over the nearby landscape.
Lighting conditions were not ideal on this day and it is very hazy. I'm sure someone else could have taken this better though. Taking it from a moving ferry was not ideal either, as it only allowed a few short seconds to capture that perfect moment.
I enjoy this landscape and perspective a great deal.
It is a very pleasant area.
By eliminating the water, I've tried to eliminate the distraction away from what I wanted to be the main subject matter.
I hope you enjoy.

Because of the impressive structure through the haze it would have been good to have a subject (ferry passenger?) in the foreground and use the mosque and haze as a powerful background. Just my opinion.
