Bonjour Mesut,

Il y a tellement de belles mosquées en Turquie que tu as l'embarras du choix et aussi du point de vue. Ici, derrière cette belle fontaine elle est magnifique.

Hello Mesut,
impressive the view of this part of the famous Eyüp Sultan mosque this brilliant day with the blue sky to make the scenery even more attractive.The foreground fountain completes perfect the whole scenery.


Merhaba Mesut, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition with the mosque in the background, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Great and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Merhaba Mesut,

THis is such an attractive photograph of the fountain.
The water looks as blue as the sea, yet the shooting waterjets are white and foaming!
They make an excellent striped pattern as seen against the b/g of the buildings.
The exposure is pin-sharp; it is possible to see the individual water droplets as they descend into the body of the fountain.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Gunaydin Mesut,
An exceptional bright day which you taken full advantage of, and shown the beautiful fountain with one of Istanbul prominent minarets.
Actually, the naked tree allow good view of the mosque through.
Have a nice new day,

Ciao Mesut
il 6 di gennaio non c'era quella bella luce a casa mia.
Bella composizione, un perfetto taglio verticale per inserire le due torri e la bella fontana in primo piano a creare dinamicità.

Hi, Mesut.
Magnificent POV with the image of this beautiful mosque, seen through the trees, the fountain in the very first plane, adds much charm to the composition.
Magnificent color, which gives great strength to the image.
Well done. I like it.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

Hello Mesut,

I remember well this wonderful mosque, I was there guided by Deniz. Fantastic composition with the beautiful fountain and the mosque with its minarets behind the winter trees. Stunning presentation of this beautiful place.

Kind regrads Malgo

HI Mesut,

The trees are framing well the mosque. The point of view is showing the details of the fountain and of the Eyüp Sultan mosque. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Selam Mesut,
Bu Eyüp Sultan karesi de çok başarılı.

Merhaba, my friend Mesut,
I must say that in my two visits to Istanbul, I never have gone to see this beautiful and important mosque.
But thanks to your photo I can see it in its whole architectural beauty, across the branches of the trees, and with the ornamental fountain in foreground.
With all these elements, you've created a very nice composition, with a good light, good colors, and a great sharpness.
An excellent job.
Friendly regards,
