Because of neighboor buildings, it was difficult to frame correct.  I’ve used Pentax K10D.

Kalenderhane Mosque (Turkish: Kalenderhane Camii) is a former Eastern Orthodox church in Istanbul, converted into a mosque by the Ottomans.

This building represents one among the few still extant examples of a Byzantine church with domed Greek cross plan.

It is located in Vefa, Fatih.
