Wonderful scene and composition. I think your camera may have let you down or you were forced to underexpose due to being handheld(?). There is a lot of color noise showing up in the shadows (primarily the columns). The blues contrast nicely with the yellows. I get a sense of the complexity, beauty and mystery of God.

Like this image more, very rich and dramatic colour. A good example of what photographic skill and media can achieve.

I've got to see Ayasofya in vivo! Your photo made me anxious.

Now those long blue bars in the vote breakdown sure are purdy :) Excellent work with angle and composition. Just expanding on AP's thoughts a little... might be the architect's job to design and build his vision, but it takes a skillful photographer to translate that vision through a photograph. You've done that.

man this is great, love how the colors and shapes keep you going thru the frame. Normally architecture shots can be boring when the intrigue of the shot lies in the architect's work itself, but here you can see the photographer's eye at work and its great

Fabulous angle, point of view. The exposure and colors are a little unnatural, but if you can get past that, it's an impressive presentation.

Great wide angle shot. Great lines and curves. Nice colors. Perspective and wide angle gives it an abstract quality. Good job.

Beautiful! Very colourful with lots of detail. I think the border being white is detrimental to this shot.

your colors are quite brilliant, IMO I think you oversharpened..that given this is a really cool Temple
