Basilica Cistern

This is one very interesting location from Istanbul, and i really enjoyed it very much, The lights made it even more spectacular. Unfortunately i was not able to use a tripod inside so therefore i did some other tricks... I did place the camera on the ground and balanced it with the some stuff from inside the bag, it was quite painful and risky, because many people were moving and because it was dark they were kicking me and one of them almost pushed the camera in the water. Anyway nothing bad happened, everyone survived... I did use a 7 shot bracketing and focusing on the lambs gave me another advantage since the mattering was straight from there and therefore not leaving any over exposed parts in the image

I did shoot with the 16-35mm lens, and did some distortion correction and some balancing because it was quite difficult to create a symmetrical look on location.
