The fourth capture of my Bosphorus Scenes series is a view from Arnavutkoy, a row of old nice wooden houses along the shore. This view is towards north, towards Black Sea.
The Bosporus or Bosphorus, also known as the Istanbul Strait, (Turkish: İstanbul Boğazı) (Greek: Βόσπορος) is a strait that forms the boundary between the European part (Rumelia) of Turkey and its Asian part (Anatolia). The world's narrowest strait used for international navigation, it connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara (which is connected by the Dardanelles to the Aegean Sea, and thereby to the Mediterranean Sea). It is approximately 30 km long, with a maximum width of 3,700 metres at the northern entrance, and a minimum width of 700 metres between Kandilli and Aşiyan; and 750 metres between Anadoluhisarı and Rumelihisarı. The depth varies from 36 to 124 metres in midstream.
Bu serinin dördüncü karesi Arnavutköyden. Sahildeki birbirinden güzel ahşap evlerin oluşturduğu bir sıra (kuzeye doğru).
İstanbul Boğazı , İstanbulun Avrupa ve Anadolu yakalarını ayıran bir su yoludur. Dünyanın ,uluslararası deniz yolu taşımacılığına açık, en dar su yoludur ve Karadenizle Marmara Denizini (ki o da Çanakkale Boğazı ile, Egeye ve dolayısı ile sonuçta Akdenize kavuşur) birleştirir. 30 km uzunluğundadır ve en geniş kısmı Karadeniz girişinde olup 3700 m dir. En dar yeri ise, Kandilli ile Aşiyan arasında olup, 700 m dir. Anadolu Hisarı ile, Rumeli Hisarı arası da 750 m dir. Boğazın orta kısımlarında, suyun derinliği 36 124 m arasında değişir.

Mesut, well-composed scene, with several lines leading us up the frame and into the background to a vanishing point at the background red building. Great detail n the houses themselves, with nice reds dotted here and there. Nicely done.

This may be a beauty from the Bosphorus but it is also a beauty of an image with the light falling from the menacing sky on these white buildings of an interesting architecture. The red flags add a touch of color while the greenery makes a nice framing. The image is of high quality.

Nice composition, nice light.
To my mind, a little unsharp ;)

Hello dear Mesut,
a very rewarding and attractive composition that makes the vertical frame look so rich in perspectives, colours and interest. I love the bright light and the way it enhances the fascination of these elaborate and elegant facades. You have captured superbly both the intense white tones and the contrasting subdued, dark or moody colours that fill the rest of the frame. Clarity is excellent and the picture urges us to follow the path and explore the place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

ottima inquadratura e bella composizione, le linee che curvano verso destra, sono avvalorate anche dall'ombra, ci guidano lo sguardo fino al centro dell'immagine e sottolineano la bella architettura bianca.

Ein sehenswertes Architekturfoto, in dem auch die Wiedergabe des Himmels mehr als nur ein Detail ist. Schön, wie hier mehrere Linien in den Hintergrund führen und das Auge entlang der Fassaden begleiten.
Gefällt mir sehr! Eine Architektur zum Wohlfühlen ...
Alles Gute für Dich und die Deinen!

della tua serie sulle bellezze del Bosforo questa mi piace in maniera particolare per la bella composizione con le curve che seguono il canale , per il taglio verticale indovinato e per il bel soggetto rappresentato.
Anche i colori sono molto ben curati e la nitidezza è molto buona.
Un ottimo lavoro.
Ciao e buona giornata

What a charming stretch of street, this composition really adds a little extra effectiveness to the entirety of the image. The vertical format certainly works well here, and the curve of the path enhances the dimension of this compressed perspective. A lot of sharp detail and balanced exposure...all of the highlights look to be in tact. The darker clouds help give some nice contrast to the bright sunlight, and the touch of blue in the sky is a pleasing compliment to the dominant white color throughout. Nicely arranged, thanks for sharing the view. Have a good Tuesday.
All the best,

In fact there is so much to see in Istanbul, that we could have stayed there for months & yet not seen even a franction of the marvellous city!
You show a part of the city, which I have not been, but I think I have seen similar wooden houses along the Bosphorous.
Rich and elegant, you've created a good perspective with these houses asthey richly stand out against the blue sky!
marina7 (8055) 2013-06-21 11:42
excellent white perspective ending with a dramatic sky! Beautiful curving lines and rich colors. Nice work.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
