I was in Istanbul last week with work. Took a few pics. This one was of the Blue Mosque at night reflected through a puddle. A curious bystander jumped in at the last minute....

K100D Sigma 18-125mm 58mm F8 1/2 sec ISO 800

very nice image.

So how was your stay there? Did you end up doing that boat trip?

Couldn't get rid of the blue circles.... there was a light just outside the photo which I think was responsible.

Here are a couple of the Mosque. Is the grain caused by the ISO 800 setting? Anyway of post processing it out in PPL3. There are a couple of noise settings but I don't understand them and I've lost the manual....

TDN, we didn't make the boat trip in the end. It's a long story....

Wow! I love them all! Grain was probably due to the 800 ISO setting. I use Neat Image for noise reduction, have never had much luck with using Adobe's noise reduction filters (Noise Ninja seems to be really good, too - I tried Neat Image first and never bothered trying Noise Ninja).

Great shots and the first two are particularly awesome. You have a good eye to spot a photo opp like that in a puddle and the Hagia Sophia shot looks worthy of blowing up and framing.
