I have been on a week long vacation in Turkey. Here are some random images. I haven't started editing yet.

No1: A little unsure, but I think it is Atatürk ("father" of Turkey)

No2: Jar in "Hagia Sofia". An old church from the 5th century, turned into a Mosque in the 16th century, now a museum

No3: Ancient water cictern from the Byzantine time

No4: Tea time

No5: Morning in Istanbul

No6: Evening in Istanbul

All images shot with LB2.0 at f2.0 or f4.0

Bjorn,

Thanks for sharing your images of your trip to Turkey! This "Show and Tell" forum is exactly the place for them.
I absolutely love images #4 and #5 with the people.

Bjorn,

I ccontinue to like virtually every shot you make that includes people. And yes, your moon composition is lovely.

Thank you for your kind words. Rich, the "moon composition" is actually the sun. In about half a minute there were some clouds/fog in front of the sun which reduced the light of the sun, but not "removing" it completely. So you like the people shots best? So do I, but with so many ruins and stones I had to do stone images too.

Really like 4 & 5 of the first set and 5 & 6 of the second. I am jealous of the photographic opportunities over there!

Cool. Thank you for welcoming me to Turkey. I am back in DK again now, but it was a great experience. Thank you. Cool that you have the image from the cictern and the old tram in snow. I saw that too (without the snow).
