Photographer's Note

This is a view of one of the many shops (some claim there are over 4000) in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I was attracted to the colors and lights. Sadly, I catched some people heads. I tried to crop them from the picture, but I didn´t like the end effect, so I decided to go with the original, just sharpening the image a little and including a black frame.

The Grand Bazaar, one of the many tourist attractions in Istanbul, is a covered market where you can buy mainly jewelry, rugs, spices and clothes, and some other stuff like these colorful lamps. The booth-like shops are generally grouped by type of good sold.

The labyrinthine Bazaar is a small town in itself, including several passageways, banks, cafés, a mosque, a police station and a post office.

Any suggestions to improve the picture will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
