Founders' Vigil Over Taksim
The Monument of the Republic, Taksim Square, Istanbul, Turkey. Built in the early 20th century to commemorate the formation of the Turkish Republic. (From Wikipedia).
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to catch rays of light a second time in Turkey. At Taksim square it certainly gave some life to this otherwise typical monument.
Notes: Dynamic range maximised by pushing and pulling shadows and highlights. No local adjustments or GND this time! Tweaked curves and white balance. USM sharpening.
