Odunpazarı was the first district of modern Eskişehir to be settled and is now being recognized as a cultural center in its own right, particularly because of its old homes, which are wonderful examples of Ottoman architecture.
As a part of the Odunpazarı Home Restoration Project started by the Odunpazarı Municipality and the Ministry of Culture in 2005, the historic Ottoman homes that grace this district are being restored one by one. Since the start of the project four years ago, enormous changes have taken place in Odunpazarı, with 200 old homes restored thus far. And in fact, the district as a whole has a new profile, as not only homes but also backstreets and town squares have been included in the project. And so now this district, which had been neglected for many years, finally has restaurants, shopping centers, culture centers, boutique hotels and pristine streets, in addition to carefully restored Ottoman homes.
And so, with new life brought to Odunpazarı through this municipality project, focused not only on restoring architectural structures but also on the social and economic life of this district, it is fair to say that Odunpazarı is heading toward being a true tourist center in Turkiye. Visitors, both local and foreign, are stopping by to enjoy the atmosphere more often, and in fact, Odunpazarı has been promoted by many tourism agencies in recent years.

Splendid image Ugur,
the colors of the facades are magnificent, the light on the little street is superb, and the presence of the woman very exciting.

Uğur Bey merhaba,
Eskişehirden güzel bir kare. Bir an Ankara tarihi evlerine benzettim. Tarihi evleri ile güzel seçilmiş bir kadraj. Evler restore edildikten sonra bir ayrı güzel oldu. Nefis bir paylaşım

Bonsoir, cher ami Uğur,
C'est une véritable découverte que cette prise de vue. Ces vieilles maisons qui serpentent au coeur d'une voie pavée. Les couleurs douces de chaque maison sont un véritable plus pour offrir au lecteur une joie supplémentaire quant à la contemplation.
Le personnage dynamise avec brio la composition.

This is a superb little town , with beautiful restored houses . I like a lot the curved line on the paved street , and the woman in this composition . May be that the large green part in the left could have been more little , using another framing . But this is your choice .

A very attractive composition with all the differently coloured surfaces that provide a very good and almost cubistic pattern. The zig-zagging line along the street leads up to the woman, who also is a very good contribution to your composition!

caratteristica scena di vita quotidiana animata dalla donna fotografata di spalle che porta con sè i boccioni d'acqua.
Bel gioco di luci ed ombre e ottimo DOF.
Un caro saluto!

ışık, renkler, perspektif ve yalnız figür ile çok hoş olmuş. gökyüzünün beyazlığı bile mavi olmasından daha iyi bence.

Very nice capture of the narrow street in Odunpazari. Beautiful view at the colorful houses with great warm light. The walking woman adds a lot of life to this scenery.

Belle lumière sur ces façades de couleurs, bon détails de la route de pavés avec la présence de la dame, belle architecture et vie quotidienne

Beautiful image, almost poetic, I love the atmosphere, very nolstalgic, lovely and charming place. Great colors, beautiful light, good details overall. Great POV, I love how you use the line of the stone path to lead the viewers in and the lady walking into the scenery where the light illuminated the houses so beautifully. Excellent job. I love it.
pablominto (53746) 2010-04-08 22:36
I like the perspective and feeling of depth in this image!
The varied light gives a fine effect, and the lady with the water bottles makes an interesting addition...
A well balanced composition with sharp fine details!

Kimbilir yillar geçtikce siz Eskisehir'de ne degisilikler gömüsünüzdür. Bu sahane bir kare. Yolun kivragi, ve tam ortasindan geçen serit'i gözün takip etmesi, renkler, kompozisyon muhtesem bir kare. Tebrik ederim, Ugur.
Sevgi ve selamlar,

This photo would just have been another simple photograp without the addition of the human element, good decision to include the lady. Great pov with nice colors. Well done, tfs.

This is a lovely photograph of a very nice view. I like the way you have managed the colours - it is not always easy shooting n narrow streets. the woman with the bottles is a nice touch, adding some scale and humanity to the picture.
Good work, thanks, Iain
