This is a ”nothing special“ photo taken at the subway station of Kadıköy. I just liked the parallel lines provided by the long tunnel. Since there was not much color in the scene, I converted it to B&W. Then I decided to bring out the only colorful object, the print on the shopping bag of the lady, by leaving it in color - hence, the title of the photo. The M4 line will take me to Ayrılık Çeşmesi, where I will change to Marmaray to cross the Boshorus. Then, on the European side, I will change again to M2 at Yeni Kapı to get off at Haliç (Golden Horn).

Başarılı bir Av

Bu, Kadıköy'ün metro istasyonunda çekilen ”özel bir şey değil“ fotoğrafıdır. Uzun tünelin sağladığı paralel hatları beğendim. Sahnede fazla renk olmadığı için onu S & B'a dönüştürdüm. Daha sonra renkli tek nesneyi, hanımın alışveriş çantasındaki baskıyı, renkli bırakarak çıkarmaya karar verdim ve böylece fotoğrafın başlığı. M4 hattı beni, Boğaz'ı geçmek için Marmaray'a değiştireceğim Ayrılık Çeşmesi'ne götürecek. Daha sonra, Avrupa yakasında, Haliç'te inmek için Yeni Kapı'da tekrar M2'ye değiştireceğim.

Hi Murat,red on black and white like in my last pic,obviously i like a lot the idea..ehehe..the deep perspective is a winner and the exposure is the best,very well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Managed fairly good the one-tone neon light underground's, Murat.
Depth and clarity and scale by the passengers all combined in fine manner.

a perfect framing using well the shapes of the tunnel and its diagonals. I liked the inclusion of the personages. I guess if someone would be near would be better. anyway it is beautiful this way too.

take care

Hello Murat,
Subway stations often have surprising photo opportunities. Excellent capture of this long, grey tunnel, where only few people were walking at that moment. The shopping bag adds a nice small yellow patch.

Hi Murat

Excellent linear perspective & sharpness with good inclusion of the solitary red color amongst the desaturated b&w. The stairs are well placed on the vp. Tfs!

Hello Murat,
The location of Istanbul has made it complicated to build a smoothly functioning metro system. There is just too much water. ;-) But once inside the tunnels there are obviously good photo opportunities. The lamps and tiles create excellent depth and you made a good decision to leave just a tiny little dot in its original colour.
Kind regards,

Ciao Murat, beautiful partial desaturation, excellent perspective, splendid light and great clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good weekend ciao Silvio

Hello Murat,
Superb long perspective along the subway tunnel. Excellent idea to convert to black and white leaving just the splash of colour supplied by the shopping bag. Very good technical realisation.

Hi, Murat.
Original image, which gives a great perspective with this long tunnel, few people transiting through it, surely facilitates transportation.
Well done.
Enjoy the weekend.
Very best regards.

Hi Murat
Une désaturation partiel laissant la couleur du sac, tout le reste en N/B, bonne profondeur, prise de l'éclairage, belle réussite
Belle soirée

Hello Murat
The underground connections of subways are often a perfect source for attractive and surprising pictures. Probably we often forget to take pictures there for we have to catch the metro. I love this symmetric composition and the choice for black and white
with a little colour is well done.
Well done. Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Olá, Murat!

A foto ficou excelente, o ponto de vista foi muito bem escolhido. O reflexo das luzes no chão criou profundidade, além de guiar nosso olhar. Composição monocromática interessante.

Hello Murat,

We get a fantastic tunnel effect with the long interior image of the subway station of Kadıköy.
The few passengers are perfect presently for the scale.
Pleasant perspective and depth picture.
An excellent composition and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Hello Murat,
The tunnel is beautifully presented with the many parallel lines all running towards the same point, probably the exit.
An almost symmetrical photo with an excellent depth.
Best regards, Paul
