Photographer's Note

About the mosque
The name of the mosque is Yeni Camii (yenNEE jumMEE) which means New Mosque. Its construction started in 1597 so the name doesn't match the age.

Reasons for posting:
Sometimes a glimpse, a part can tell about the whole much more than the whole itself. The point is to choose the right part: sometimes there's only one really good vantage point, but more often there are a lot. Here's the part that I liked best. Have a look at a glimpse of Yeni Mosque from inside.

PP (a disorderly summary):
* rotated using ACDSee's "define the horizontal/vertical line" (nothing of the kind in Photoshop);
* cropped (considerably here);
* blurred the sky to decrease the noise (selected it and smart-blurred; could have used Gaussain blur but it wouldn't work the way I wanted);
* played with colours a bit and sharpened the picture;
* added a frame.
