reconstruction work inside the hagia sophia in istanbul. shot with the panasonic lx-3 and a cheap fisheye conversion lens. this time i really recommend clicking the picture for getting a clearer view on the quite impressive scaffolding (and of course on the quality of the converter ;)).
It’s very beautiful even on my tiny phone screen.
cool, i have to check this out on my phone, too ;)
sophia in sepia (toning) :)
Reblogged this on TURKISCH-LITERATURE-ART-CULTURE AND MUSIC.
Stunning shot! :)
thank you, richard. i can highly recommend hagia sophia and istanbul in general for stunning shots ;)
Istanbul’s one of the places on my (very long) list, and I’ll get there some day! :)
i know these lists… ;)
they can be quite helpful. istanbul easily re-entered my list btw.
Brilliant idea and really well executed! Beautiful shot.
thanks, richard. very much!
Bravo! Visual perfection!!
thanks a lot!
It looks like a photo from the VIctorian era and not just due to the sepia tone. Lovely.
thanks a lot, i share that sentiment. maybe it really is the old fashioned scaffolding…
I am in love with this photo! Fisheye lenses are pretty over-used, but here it really works to accent all the circles in the image. Hagia Sophia is gorgeous, and this lends a neat, vintage, slightly eerie feeling to it. Wonderful!
thanks a lot. and yes, hagia sophia is really gorgeous!
