" Your shots as always, fascinating. I could recognise some of the places you went to in Istanbul, such as the Hagia Sophia museum and the bridge over the Bosphorus. I particularly liked the black and white shots of human portraits, they tell the story of life. When you chose colour for the ceilings, you brought contrast of thousands of colours in single shot, well done. The short depth of field on prayers in the mosque worked beautifully, as spiritually this is exactly how you feel in a mosque, well concentrated on your own thing, and surrounded by a small halo of Allah’s attention. The rest of the world and what is happening around you does not register. Prayer time is a direct link to the creator, hence the name Salah (or Salat) which means a link.
As always I could go to a greater length for each of your lovely shots, and I must admit I am green with envy, well done. "
