Tuval Kafenin önü,
Alaçatı (also known as Agrilia) is a unique Aegean town on the western coast of Turkey, which has been famous for its architecture, vineyards and windmills for over 150 years has now made its name in the world of windsurfing and kitesurfing, with its crystal clear water, consistent and steady wind and well acclaimed Turkish hospitality.
There are numerous stories about the name Alaçati. According to some, Alaçati is the name only for the harbour area which is about two kilometers from the old town. Some claim that the name for the town was Agrilia, and there is also another name AlacaAt (RedHorse) used for the whole area. Their claim is based on a story, that the ruler of Alacati had a red horse to ride. When riding the horse, bystanders would refer to him as "Alacaatli (the man with the red horse)", in time the name was somehow changed to Alacati.

very good light and POV. The opening at 2,8 is not giving a maximum of sharpness! The pic would have been really good at 5,6 or 8!

A very nice ambience for this interesting night time composition. Good exposure management with some lovely tones and good clarity. Just a pity there are no people sitting at the tables.

This is like a stage set. You have a beautiful image, with excellent composition, colors and resolution. I thought a little tweaking here and there would help. Accordingly, I brought I would do a workshop. I hope you don't regard it as meddling.
Warm regards for a Happy New Year!
