This is Istanbul in the morning! This is actually a very romantic and nostalgic scene. This humidity, those wonderful sunsets and the people make you to feel the urge to come back again and again. This image is from the terrace of our hotel in the Taksim Square. You can see the famous Galata tower, the intense shadows and the humidity...

A very atmospheric picture of Istanbul, with great depth and good capture of the light. And yes, I can sense the humidity too. I don't mind the blurry foreground, which comes from using a long focal length, but what is that shadow - strong on the upper left, almost invisible on the right? Were you using a lens hood? It's a shame that this is spoiling your picture. But well done for composition.

your previous post and this one is really great. They are totally Istanbul with their color & mood.
I miss the city.
Is it possible to tell me from which hotel's terrace you got this view?
Thanks for sharing,

fabulous roof top shot of Istanbul, a wonderful composition and the OOF chimneys in the foreground is great. Excellent work

Absolutely fascinating photograph. I can see why you call it 'Romantic'. It is. The multitude of buildings - in early morning misty haze of the .... the Galata Tower and still behind it the 4 minarets of the great mosque - is in contrast to the chimneys in the dark yellow building in the front of the Photograph ( purposely off focus ?). The vertical framing is so appropriate. The buildings in gray adds to the mystic romanticism.
Thanks for sharing.
