Photographer's Note

This is the 5th view from my trip to Turkey.

Topkapı Palace ("Cannongate Palace"), located in Istanbul was the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire from 1465 to 1853. The construction of the Topkapı Palace was ordered by Sultan Mehmet II in 1459. It was completed in 1465. The palace looks really amazing inside and it owns large collections of porcelain, robes, weapons, shields, armors, Ottoman miniatures, calligraphic manuscripts and mural decorations, as well a display of accumulated Ottoman treasures and jewelry.

On this picture you can see one of the rooms where the Sultan received his guests and envoys. Walls are very riched decorated.

Unfortunatelly one can not take a tripod inside Topkapı Palace. You have to leave it at the main entrance and try to manage not to shake your camera when taking the pictures indoors with quite long exposures like 1/4 - 1 sec. Hopefuly it`s not so bad here :-)

Taken with 10d and wide-angle lens.

Hope you like it!
