Did you use a tripod to take this? Are you allowed to use a tripod?
Great shot :)

I did sneakily use my tripod. They usually stop you though.

I got the same shot (as have many others who have ever been there I think :D) It makes a really great photo, as do the hanging lights.

I didn't have a tripod to try and use though. So I used the floor, and my finger :D

I really like how the lighting doesn't cause overly dark shadows. It decreases the sense of depth and really draws your eyes into the patterns that are decorate. I also like the way the overblown highlights in the windows gives such a strong sense of the sun outside.
Awesome :-)

Wow, what a place! Looks like a drawing, one by Escher, with all those interlaced cupolas! Perfect HDR, not overdone, just enough to bring out the intricate details. I can imagine this as a reference pic for a drawing - but man, you'd need patience! There's something really appealing about the composition, too, but I can't pinpoint why it's so great.

Thanks. Glad you like it. It's pretty dizzying looking up at the real thing.

really like this. I'm guessing they didn't let you take a tripod in there, so grats on the V steady hands! - pin sharpe by the looks of it.

Actually, I did get out the tripod and nobody stopped me. This is a three shot HDR.
Thanks,

V lucky! - I was told i couldn't in both Prague and Budapest. Ah well,

Anyway, nice shot - good to see the little vid of you on the news too (down in Exeter at the moment) My dad works as director for ITV local over in the South East and remembered your name from when i'd shown him photo's you'd done, told me you'd be on :).

Take care

wow, another amazing photo.
you made this like a drawing, i liked that style.
photo has great details.


although i am not a muslim (maybe atheist/pagan? lol :P ), i am being happy when europeans or americans don't treat muslims like "towel headed evil incarnate".
you showed an interesting part of mosques.

still, i love the gothic architecture of churches more.

good job.
