    I took this picture in a recent trip to Famagusta (Cyprus). This mosque started its life as a lusignan gothic cathedral, and then it was converted during ottoman times.

    I know the sharpness is not the best, but i took it handheld at 1/3s with the aid of the 12-35 f2.8 stabilizer, quite remarkable in my opinion!!

    Good result for 1/3rd sec.
    Did the Ottomans remove the top of the church?

    No, this picture is from the back of the church. However, during the war to conquer the city they damaged the towers.
