Construction started in 1597 but finished in 1663. :roll:

The public square in front of the mosque is always very crowded by the people and the doves and the pigeons.

Thanks for sharing. Good shot. I think if I were those sellers I'd have an umbrella over my food. :-)

emre,

Fantastic picture, the set of stairs strongly catching the eyes. Remarcable; I can see two diagonal lines from the lower left to the upper right

Walter,
Thanks for appreciation.
The food they sell there is for birds. :-) Birds don't care if the seeds they eat are wet or not.


Torgny, thanks for your kind admire.

emre,

The picture is excellent the way it is.

Have you thought about experimenting with just a little bit of lens correction, ie barrel distortion. It might be self-evident but I just noticed the other day, going through my architectural folders, how much it can emphasize the middle parts of a picture. In your case the set of stairs already draws much attention... even more...

Pincushoning is anyhow perhaps not so good for this kind of photography, or...?

Any thoughts on this?

Well, you get my point, being a man of the profession (?)

Torgny,

I try to solve your concerns. If I understood correct, you think the stairs are over emphasized in the shot caused by the lens' structure. To tell the truth it didn't bother me because the subject here was the ambiance/space created by the existance of the birds not the architectural elements. They serve as background to the players -birds, sellers, and the crowd-.

On the other hand, I will wellcome any proposal, if someone would like to.

emre,

It is too easy to misunderstand people on the Internet. It must be because of the lack of eye and voice contact

I like the picture exactly the way it is, with the stairs and all. For me the stairs are the central part.

I wondered if you have noticed that the proportions may differ when using different focal length and thereby learn from your thoughts. There are very few lenses without barrel or pincushion distorsion (Hasselblad can be one of the exeptions)

So I wondered if you could give me som useful tips, especially since you have experience of (or perhaps are working with) architecture

Still, they might be needing the umbrella for some other reason:G

Anyway, you brought me back to my Istanbul days startingwith feeding the seagullsfollowing theEminönĂ¼ ferry and then myselfon bread and fish : )as I got off the ferryat theHistorical Peninsula (ancient Istanbul)!

Torgny,

Sorry that I don't have a tip. But for artistic or professional architectural photographs there is a strange camera. Probably some of you know it.
Using that camera (The one I've seen was an analog one and I'm not sure if there is any digital version) you can tilt the lens both horizontal or vertical separate than the film surface. Between lens and the film surface there is bellows, so you can change the axis of the two regions. By this adjustment you can achieve the perspective correction. The buildings do not get slimmer when they rise and keep the both sides parallel with that camera.

Gives any help?
