The Largest Mosque of Istanbul

Süleymaniye Mosque

I have a hard time taking photographs that capture the atmosphere of a Mosque or Cathedral.  There is a mystical atmosphere in the filtered light, the acoustics below a dome, and the believers mixed with the curious.  I am happy with these two pictures created from my iPad.  The first is a panorama shot from the base to the dome.  The second is a collage of kaleidoscope images.

Looking back I wish I would have tried other techniques when photographing the Church of St. Sava in Belgrade, Et’hem Bey Mosque in Tirana, and Holy Savior Church in Skopje.
