    I have had the great privilege of visiting the mosque when I attended a conference in Istanbul some years ago. It is a truly magnificent building and I think this is a very good image of it.

    However, the thing I find distracting are the trails in the sky and would wonder about taking some time to clone those out so that we see a clear sky.

    I do think your composition, with the paved pathway providing a strong line that takes us back into the image and to the mosque, is very good.
