    Istanbul, Turkey

    This is the first of my Istanbul images to be post processed. Hagia Sophia was a Byzantine Cathedral in which the Emperors of Byzantium were crowned, a Muslim Mosque, after the Ottoman Turkish conquest of Constantinople in 1453, and is now a museum. Unfortunately, one of the minarets was being repaired and there was a lot of constuction going on inside the Hagia Sophia.

    Istanbul, Turkey

    Canon 7D, 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens at 21mm with CPF filter. ISO 200, f/9 at 1/320 second.

    Istanbul is a gorgeous and photographically interesting city and my three days there only scratched the surface. I would return in a heartbeat. Conversely, my two days total in Venice were plenty for me and I don't care if I ever return to that city.

    I would rank Istanbul up there with Hong Kong and San Francisco as one of my favorite cities in the world to visit.

    More images to follow.

    No sign of under-exposure in this one Richard. That's a cracker.

    I was wondering when you would get around to showing us your photos of Istanbul, as I have been anxiously waiting to see them. I agree that Istanbul is a fabulous city, though we disagree about Venice, as I could return there forever.

    I think the Hagia Sophia always has construction going on inside, probably due to lack of funds to speed things along.
