Mosque Minaret, Istanbul, Turkey

Art photograph of a mosque tower in Istanbul, by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: At Mosque Point.

Taken in Istanbul. High contrast drama was the goal here. The way I began processing this lead to the sky making a natural halo around the tower. When I saw the first hints of it, I developed it further, and I like the bold effect it gives. I also like the somewhat jarring angular lines of the lower building juxtaposed against the perfectly vertical tower. It makes for a slightly unnerving but interesting composition.
