Looking on the other side of the Sultanhamet garden, one can discover the Blue Mosquee. She was named after the 20,000 mainly blue stained glasses which are allow the light to enter the praying area inside.
During the shot, there were an historic show with music and lights explaing how the gardens and the Mosquee was built between 1609 and 1616 just in front of the Agya Sofia cathedral I already presented you. In the lower part, there were enlighten walls which showed the limit between the Mosquee and the gardens.
As you may guess from here, the volume of the Mosquee is huge and once inside, I was really breathtaken by its beauty and the decorations. Just like outside at sunset.

Excellent shot: the colour of the sky, the warm sunrays hitting the building, the composition. Everything is really ok. Well done.

the composition is great. great lighting. I really like this "new" view of an often photographed subject. I like your use of sky as negative space and the spires are really fantastic.

Greetings Steven. Marvellous uplifting composition and lovely earthy, warm colours. The details of the masonry are wonderful. Ang surrounding all of this is the magically coloured sky.Unpretentious yet rich in sentiment. Regards, klaudio
