Hi Setenay, this is a lovely shot - sharp & clear. I particularly like the juxtaposition of the old (Anadolu hissar) and the new(er) - the beautiful yalis. An effective and striking composition, highlighting istanbul's varied architecture. Aferin!

This is a very nice picture. I like the way you shot the castle in reference to the house on the left. Very interesting architecture and colours, specially the blue house on the left!
