Had the pleasure of visiting Turkey a couple of weeks ago. One of my first stops in Istanbul was to the Basilica Cistern, a subterranean structure built in the 6th century that provided a water filtration system. During my walk around, I saw a narrow alley lined with pillars. I walked over and barely saw another gent layed out on the walkway getting his shot. When he rose, he asked me what I was shooting...Canon I replied. With that, he offered me a crack at the shot with his 70-200 2.8 IS. With barely being able to see if I had nailed the focus, I snapped off the shot. I rose and exchanged some small talk and thanked him and we were both on our way to our next conquests. I nearly deleted the shot as I didn't like the perspective. Well, thankfully, I didn't. With a bit of cropping and playing around in LR, I kinda like the way the 2nd shot came out. To the gent from Germany (or perhaps Austria), if you're on this list...once again, thank you for your generosity!
