Photo was taken at Rustem Pasha mosque, which is located in Tahtakale, Istanbul. The Rustem Pasha Mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier Damat Rüstem Pasha (husband of one of the daughters of Suleiman the Magnificent, Princess Mihrimah). Rustem Pasha died in July 1561 and the mosque was built after his death from around 1561 until 1563.

Merhaba Seyhan. Intense colours and beautiful details. Most people would photograph the impressive central dome- you went for a more intimate, quiet moment. Thanks for this photo as now i shall visit this mosque on my upcoming trip to Turkey. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Great photo of a quiet moment this man is sharing. My only advice would be to re-edit and tilt the photo, in order to create an even horizon all the way across. Perhaps it's the patterns playing tricks on my eyes, but it looks like the right side of the photo sits a little higher than the left. Even this out and I think it will add even more to an already great shot!
