[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've made this capture yesterday from the Asian part of Istanbul towards the European part of the city.rnThe ship at rigth corner had just started it's half an hour lasting travel to Istanbul.rnAllthough the weather was quite dim the atmosphere was a typical wintery Istanbul weather.

Dobar dan.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Lepi turisticki brodovi i ptice u danu sa oblacima.
Zelim vam lep dan za odmor, sve najbolje.

Good day.
Interesting view and a moment, good text ...
beautifully shown, good perspective and contrast, beautiful colors, nice caught moment. Beautiful tourist ships and birds in the day with clouds.
I wish you a nice day for rest, all the best.

Hello Mesut,
A well framed composition. The light was not in your favour but the image does not lack atmosphere. The birds circling around provide additional interest and contribute to the mood.

Hello Mesut

I like this somewhat chilly-looking view of the Bosphorus: very atmospheric and appealing. Somehow it manages to look as if it were an old photograph from way back in your archive. I wonder if you did any post-processing to achieve this nostalgic, almost elegaic feel. The very dark shadows look like they come from a traditional transparency. Nice one.



Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Une belle composition marine. J'aime beaucoup la présence des mouettes qui accompagnent bien les bateaux en cours de navigation, dont l'un, crachant une fumée qui s'envole vers un ciel neigeux.

Hello Mesut, must have lots of fish there...nice picture!

Hi Mesut.
The dull day has created a very atmospheric scene. The smoke and the birds on the right of the shot really grab the attention.

Hello Mesut, Very nice picture. I do not know why but it looks like made many years ago. I like the view of many sea gulkls in flight, following the boats and ferries. Even the black smoke looks attractive. Nice view of the mosque with the four minarets.

Kind regrads MAlgo
