This is an early moning view from the Blue Mosquee I already presented you at night. It was very nice to walk arounf since there were almost no one in the streets at that time. I wandered around for about one hour before the sun could be high enough above the buildings to enlighten the whole Mosquee with a nice light.
No cropping, USM applied.

La composition est trsè bonne avec les minarets qui se reflètent dans le bassin. Les couleurs sont superbes. L'image est très réussie.
Est ce que les deux minarets de droite appartiennent également à la mosquée?

Nice early morning shot. Really like the pool reflection also. Those mosques are so huge, I found it difficult if not impossible to capture the sheer awe inspiring dimentions. YOu've done a good job here.

There were some popular postcards which were including the same view of the Sultanahmet.. They were used for some long times to celebrate the relatives by them...Hence it is quite nice and successful... Thanks for sharing...
