[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya) is located in the heart of Istanbul. This area is suprising visitiors with great architecture, history and hendcrafts and Ramadan cerenomy as well. I captured in between Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The sky was cloudy so no stars this time.

Ramazan şenlikleriyle süslenen Sultanahmet meydanı ve o güzel iki camiinin arasından çekilmiş bir kare. Şuan görünmesede sırtım o güzel şaheser Sultanahmet camiine dönük. Merak etmeyin onu da objektifle yüz yüze getirdim.

nice picture, well composed. The night colours are good althoug I would recommand shooting just a little earlier so that the sky doesn't get that dark but rather nice deep dark blue and not black.
Well done anyway, i like the shot!! TFS

ciao Ugur,

This is a beautiful building and appears to be floating on water. Who cares whether one can see stars. It's a wonderful photograph anyway!

Keep shootin'.

Hi Ugur..nicely composed shot. Great colors and lighting.


Great capture with nice lights. Well composed. The only thing that I would do is clone out the boys in the front but for the rest a great picture.
Well done

Renkler ve netlik çok hoş etkileyici güzellikte...

Personally This is the best of your recent night pictures - the water is perfect - lighting is right on.


Thanks for visiting my current road trip posting.

Daha önce de belki sizin belki bir başkasının çalışmasında aynı izlenimi edinmiştim: Istanbul göklerinde bir avizeye benziyen cami görünümü. Aynı duyguyu burada da yaşadım.Teşekkürler

Merhaba Ugur,
Beautiful light on the Ayasofya. Indeed an impressive architecture.
Very funny to see all those people lined up in front of the fountain with the Ayasofya in the background to get their picture taken. That fountain gives the picture a very nice touch.
Lovely job.
