Istanbul photo contest

During our trip to Europe last June we visited many iconic European cities. Our favourite surprised us though; it was Istanbul.

It is a fantastic freewheeling city a mesmerising mix of East and West.

It is also wonderfully photogenic.

I was happy with some of the photos that I took there, but none came close to the stunner below:

It is the winner in the Istanbul Photo Contest of 2008.

Here are a few of my Istanbul photos. Sadly no comparison.
