Istambul, Turkey. In many places you can find as well some places where you can see a show like for example “derviches” dancing. It is not real, and it’s done for the tourists to have a nice time, but it’s nice to see it. This photograph is from the Mesala cafe (near the blue mosque, in a small baazar).
Anyway there’s a real Sufi tradition, if you’re interested in it you can look for Mevlana.

This is also nice shot.
But i have to say you are posting the images very small
and jpeg comp. very high.

I like the idea of this photo very much, as you the capture of the twirling Sufi man successes in creating movement and motion. There is good lighting and reflection of light from the white clothes but I find your initials a little bit distracting. Perhaps you could shift these into the corner of the frame, this is a bit of design mentality but think it's appropriate. And yes, a larger image would be great!
