Hi Pinar, this is a fascinating shot. I've always wanted to visit Istanbul and am very interested in the history of the place and the area.

When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was a mosque. I took a shot like this in the mesquita in Cordoba, Spain (not on TE).

As for the image, the light and particularly the reflection on the floor are excellent. I like the eerie yellow glow - it gives a feeling of antiquity somehow.

On the downside, some of the columns seem a little out of focus (unless it's my screen!). I see you used f/2.8, it might have been better to take an even longer exposure with a larger aperture (F8 or F11). This would have given an increased depth of focus and, being on a tripod, still been free of shake. Of course, you might have got people walking into shot with a longer exposure.

Default To steveegg: thank you!

i took the photo from a [kind of] bridge on the water, and what i used as a tripod was the barriers, this might be the reason.. and i couldnt have got people on the scene :) but with my camera i cannot change time, it's not that professional, but thanks for the advice, it's enough for me to understand what you mean :)
