Thanks for your advice. I'll save that picture for another occasion and chose one more suitable for this challenge.
Are cultural events which involve people, such as dancers (bot not portraits) allowed?
With all due respect to the entrant, the Hagia Sofia does not represent Islamic Architecture, it was not built as a mosque. It is a church built in the 6th century AD, nearly a century before the birth of Islam (622 AD). The minarets were added after the capture of Constantinople by the great Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II in 1453 when it was converted to a mosque. The wikipidia entry which he/she has provided for historical reference clearly states this fact. There is no shortage of great buildings in Istanbul which bear testimony to the beauty of genuine Islamic Architecture.
