Indeed, Istanbul is good enough to spent more time. We spent a full week overthere (12 years ago) and could even spent more time. So much to see and so much to do.
Good capture of this building. The fontains look like waterfalls. Good clearity, colors and sharpness.

I agree, I was lucky enough to see this place in 2004. It is an absolutely awesome incredible structure. When I was there they still working on restoring the dome, is that work completed now?? Thanks for good memory...

Wow, really impressive your picture.
Great colours and POV with your great angle. There is a great atmsphere communicated by our picture. Its an effective POV and very fine details. Very good shot. The lightness and the nice sky they accompany the nice mosque give this excellent result.

Is this, what ze noemen, 'Water naar de Bosporus brengen' ?
Very good pov, John. Great looking picture of that famous Church.

....and the technical immensity of the dome is still an architectural marvel to this day! To truly appreciate such a structure, we have to realize that there were no engineering drawings and computer calculated models available then....
Nicely put together, and if there wasn't a palm frond in the upper right, you would have had to clone one in to give it the depth it attained.
