Gallery: The Splendors of Topkapi Palace and its Harem

This is a gallery in progress of the famous Topkapi Palace, home of the Ottoman Sultans until the 19th century. With all these architectural details and straight lines, I had a serious problem with distortion. I've tried to fix it as I can, but being a bit PS challenged, it may not be perfect. In any case, enjoy!
