[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Turkish: Sultanahmet Camii) is a historical mosque in Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey and the capital of the Ottoman Empire (from 1453 to 1923). The mosque is one of several mosques known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior. It was built between 1609 and 1616, during the rule of Ahmed I. Like many other mosques, it also comprises a tomb of the founder, a madrasah and a hospice. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque has become one of the greatest tourist attractions of Istanbul.

I changed the colours a bit...

I would be pleased if you told me your opinion about the photo!

Szia Marci!
Jó PP munka, nagyon látványos képet kaptunk érdekes színvilággal. Gondolom azért az eredeti is jó lehetett, de ez a piros ég egész különlegssé teszi. Szép munka!
Keep posting ;)

A superb landscape shot but it is spoiled by the change of color to the sky, too artificial and unreal, IMO.

hi marton.
you should have left the colours alone. it has made the image look cheap, in my opinion.
post the original in the ws so that we can make a comparison.
the composition is fine it is the colours that are not.

the image in the ws is beautiful. and i will give it a big smiley. thank you for posting it.
maybe you should re-post the pic without the colour pp?
thank you for being so understanding.

Itt en is jartam, ocskaimarci. Remek kep, the red sky is overwhelming but makes a surrealistic image. Legjobbakat, Jancsi

Nekem semmi bajom a szürrealisztikus színekkel, szerintem remekül megcsináltad, egyedi megoldás. Inkább az zavar, hogy a palota leheletnyit jobbra dől.
Üdv, Laci
