Hello Mesut,
It was a cloudy day, but luckily the lady in red and the many lifebuoys on the ship managed to colour the day. Good photo of the waterfront. A well composed vertical picture, I like the many gulls around the ship.

Hello Mesut,
The young lady in red improved your photo considerably, even though the ferry already was a good focal-point. She is bright and eye-catching and fills the foreground perfectly. But I also like the swarm of seagulls and the reflections in the puddle. There is a very good light and the colours are generally pleasant in spite of the grey sky.
Kind regards,

Hello Mesut,
The lady in red makes an excellent focal point and also serves to draw us into the scene. Good use is made of the vertical format with the different elements nicely distributed around the frame. The image is well exposed with very good colours and clarity.

Merhaba, my friend Mesut,
I think this young lady in red is a good intromission into your original frame, because she adds a nice touch of color in foreground, in a good contrast with a grey sky.
I like the wintery atmosphere you've caught in this shot, and to see the ferry-station and the leaving boat, surrounded by a flock of seagulls.
Is a very attractive photo, I like a lot, and I remember Kadikoy and my beloved Istanbul as well.
Thanks for sharing.
Friendly regards,

Hello dear Mesut,

This looks to have been a fairly miserable and bleak day with a bright sky and not much in the way of colour - so how wonderful that this young lady with her bright red coat strode right in front of your camera! You could not have hoped for anything better! And, of course, you have caught her in exactly the right place in the frame.

A perfectly executed quick shot and yet the light, colours, exposure and sharpness are all perfect.


Kind Regards,


Hello dear Mesut and have a nice time
and a happy evening
romantic scenery of Bosporus
the lade in red caught our attention
and the seagull flying over the sea
add beauty

Merhaba Mesut,

The striding lady makes a very strong, attractive focal point, leading not only to the ferry but also, to the reflection in the puddle.
The scene is alive with circling birds!
There is such a lot to see!
The only pity is that there is no sound to accompany your photograph!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Mesut,

Une dame en rouge dans une photo, je croyais que c'était Claude. J'aime cette photo parce qu'elle raconte une histoire d'arrivée ou de départ.



Ciao Mesut, lovely composition with woman in red, excellent perspective and splendid colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Merhaba Mesut, very good photograph of this interesting scene of everyday life in the ferry dock, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy beginning of the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hello Mesut, I again have looked when the picture was made and surprise that it is very fresh. You were lucky that the girl in red came into the composition. Nice view of so many sea gulls around the ferry.

Kind regards MAlgo

Hello Mesut
The lady in red. I dare say that this is the favourite theme of most TE-photographers. We aren’t unfortunately not every day in the position to add a new shining lady to the extended collection. This contribution to theme is splendid with het fierce coloured coat in front of an interesting harbour-scene.
Excellent work
Have a nice day, groet Rob

Hello Mesut,

An entertaining daily life image in which there is a lot to see. The red coat brightens the day and I like the lond shadow in the puddle of water.

Best regards
