Nice! I like best the second, with less bright colors.

However, (and I am NOT a specialist in the area) I'm not sure we have 
the cultural context right: those are some Muslim buildings(Hagia 
Sophia), not the city of Constantine: after Constantinople was conquered 
in 1453 by the Ottoman Empire it became Istanbul and was dramatically 
changed regardin its architecture

[1] See Hagia Sophia of today: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Aya_sofya.jpg and a depiction of its 
supposed original image:
