Finally, we reached the waterfront and started walking toward Harem. As we passed by these anglers, I just had to record them for posterity.

We can see familiar sights on the European side: On the shore, from left (south) to right I can recognize Dolmabahçe Mosque, Vodafone Arena, Dolmabahçe Palace, and, right on the northern edge, Çırağan Palace.

Üsküdar'ın Balıkçıları

Sonunda rıhtıma ulaştık ve Harem'e doğru yürümeye başladık. Bu balıkçıları geçerken, onları hemen vesayet için kaydediverdim.

Avrupa yakasında tanıdık manzaralar görebiliriz: Kıyıda, soldan (güneyden) sağa doğru Dolmabahçe Camii, Vodafone Arena, Dolmabahçe Sarayı ve kuzey kenarında Çırağan Sarayı'nı çıkarabilirim.

Hello Murat,
Great view over the wide water. Both sides are very interesting to see, in the foreground the anglers and in the background the skyline of the city. Everything was captured in a great sunlight.

Hello Murat,
Beautiful take upon the waterfront promenade with the fishermen ever being there.
bright day brought out best of colors, especially white and blue, city skyline across the waterway, and overall a wonderful scenery.
Have a nice Sunday,

Bonjour, cher Murat,
La pêche est une activité qui doit remonter à la nuit des temps. Au fil des siècles, elle est devenue une activité de détente, et pour les autres un métier.
Belle présentation générale.

Avec ces barrières toute blanche quelle compo et vue de ces pêcheur le chaines font des coubre et la vue en fon superbe.
Bravo et amitié

Hello Murat,
The angle of view is well chosen to include the anglers and the background cityscape providing two points of interest. I like the perspective created by the repeating chain link fences.

Hello Murat,
It's not the most famous Istanbul skyline from this angle but still there is no mistaking which city it is. These anglers found at every stretch of water in the city are always irresistible to anyone with a camera. I admit to having several similar photos. The nearest men are well placed and the photo has an attractive diagonal emphasis.
Kind regards,

Hello Murat,

A nice daily life picture with the fisher men as subject.
Also a wonderful panorama view with the river and city in background.
An excellent composition lovely presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Ciao Murat, lovely composition with fisherman in action, excellent perspective, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Murat,
A skyline that has changed much since my visit in the 80-s. Of course Istanbul is a fast changing city with a large population growth.
A beautiful place to go fishing and also to go on photo hunting.
Excellent brightness, depth and composition.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Murat,

I recognise the mosque at far left where the boats for Princes Islands depart. Good inclusion of the fg anglers. I like the rise and dip of the chain fence and its diagonal axis adding dynamism. Tfs!

Hi Murat
I love the diagonal placement of the anglers as centre of interest which adds to the surroundings giving a sense of the place. You are blessed by such brightness and some bright colours with excellent overall contrast. Nice snap, Congrats.
Best wishes

Hello Murat You show two rows of different moods: The near diagonal of people getting fired up about fishing to forget the distant hubbub of town. Good vibes in both cases separated by an admirable turquoise triangle. Some fishermen take it so seriously to the point I saw on a t-shirt in Florida: 'Shut up and fish'! Cheers

Hello Murat,

What struck me immediately was the strong composition.
The waterfront triangle is perfect as it also occupies one third of the frame.
You have created a fine sense of perspective from the receding features, with lots of visual interest in the distance.

Have a great day,
Bev :-)

Hello Murat, very good photo of this interesting scene of daily life with the interesting view of the city in the background, very well captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.

Good afternoon and happy weekend.
All the best from the south of Spain.
