This is an iconic building in Istanbul, Turkey. It was dusk, the fountains were playing and the light was delightful behind the building.

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

    I like the comp and the framing of the mosque with the water, consider however, adjusting levels, colors and contrast as the image seems a tad under exposed. I like the back lighting and how the minarets are lit and separated from the sky. Consider also straightening the image from it’s right tilt. Thanks for adding this image to the Art of the Middle East group.

    Thanks for the input – I’ll follow up on your suggestions. You are right,there is a slight tilt on the image which I had not noticed because my eye tends to go to the curve of the fountain edge and follow it across the photo
