The interior of the Hagia Sofia is vast.
But you must visit galleries on the second floor, and you will be impressed not only by mosaics and architecture but also because of the play of light on walls.
Waiting the next TE meeting at Istanbul, in February 2010, I can dream and remember all great moments and friends from Turkey

a fine night shot, very moody with the shadow of the walking man and the golden sky of the light.

Hello Isabela. Gold, movement, light, shadow. A truly fascinating photo. You represent the special atmosphere of this place with this photo perfectly. Regards, Wolfgang.

Beautiful and mysterious atmosphere. It's a pity that a lerger part of the church is not visible.

Cette photo est très réussie. Tout est suggéré, rien n'est imposé. J'aime cette atmosphère de mystère et le jeu des lumières et des ombres.
Bonne soirée !

Nice wall texture with golden light,
Jeppo (17645) 2009-12-17 12:17
I hope you and your family are fine.
I fully agree with you on your suggestion. hagia sophia is also impressive for the very particular light you can experience over there...

Molto bella questa istantanea! Fantastica la luce, belle le zone in ombra! Interessantissima l'architettura con la parete di marmo in primo piano e le arcate decorate sul fondo.Ottimo lavoro!

let there be light! :) and then there was light, in all meanings of this word. I'm happy about the recent changes here, and hats off to you for your persistance.
but back to the photo - love it, the golden light seems to pour right out of my monitor. the composition works very well, especially the strong diagonals of light and shadow. great shot, my compliments.

Excellent atmosphere achieved. Superb lights, no doubt.
Regards my dear friend.

My, oh my...Isa, this is fabulous! Not just the effect of light creating halos around the people, but also the long shadows. Your framing, unusual to say the least creating a fine perspective, is excellent! I have a fleeting feeling that the guy with the camera is a TE-ite!

Ciao Isabela, fascinating composition with splendid view of wonderful architecture, fantastic light, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
Nice see you again with critic, my friend, I'm happy for you:)
japiey (10163) 2009-12-18 15:24
Lights.. its yes.. but the shades create the finest of balance here, giving a dramatic touch to the frame.
Beautiful in composition with the concept still hanging in frame, the reflections of the beautiful Hagia Sofia in the distant b/g.
jjcordier (79297) 2009-12-18 23:44
Une photo, un peu étrange, pleine de mystère, qui suggère beaucoup. Magnifique gestion de la lumière, composition fantastique et couleurs splendides. Très beau!
bantonbuju (51815) 2009-12-19 0:20
oh yes - light there is awesome... i do love this photo where the whole world is gold and full of secrets...
burGu (4840) 2009-12-19 8:28
I guess I know both of them, one very closely and the other one just from her pics... I fell in love with light of Hagia Sofia every time I see a picture from your previos visit to Istanbul. It's a pity that I had never gone there with my camera. Maybe in the next meeting...
Love and kisses dear,
