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.
* Wikipedia: About the Yeni Camii, Yeni Camii hakkında;
* A 360-degree view from one of the towers.
* Camiinin bir kulesinden 360-derece görünüş.

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.
