@diskojoe
Thanks. I can only put 4 pictures in each post or I'll get a url error, something to with my internet connection. My tips in general would be to use low ISO, high aperture, slow shutter speeds at night, use filters like infrared, cir. polariser, ND etc. instead of digital editing to reduce unnecessary editing and noise, consider composition and angle, take lots of photos and select the best, and also revisit places to correct your previous flaws.

^ that's my favourite too

Sarkis Armenian Cathedral - In Iran it's usually best to never ask anyone if photography is allowed (unless there is a bold notice or sign) because no matter what subject you are photographing or whether it is allowed or not they will say no instantly. In this occasion I asked the door guard if I could take a picture of the Cathedral and he told me photography is not allowed on the property, not bothering to argue I left the property and stood outside until their vehicle door opened and snapped a few pictures quickly. I had the same problem at Saadabad palace, Tochal mountain, Zafar St. and Bucharest Ave. (the police actually suggested to go a few steps away so they won't be visible in my photo )
