Taken with my friend Aydin Erel 'erel' of the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge on the Bosphorous. This one is the second one built on the Bosphorous between the Asian and European parts of Istanbul. It is longer and bigger than the first one built. Unfortunately it is not illuminated.

This is a really good picture. I think you have taken this at a great time, just as it was getting darker. Also your good exposure adds a really nice effect to the lights of the cars.

A superb view of this bridge. Good POV and great light in the night.

The trails of the vehicle lights more than make up for the lack of illumination on the bridge. Excellent point of view. The exposure is very well managed taking full advantage of the fading daylight. Very nice tones and superb clarity.

Very dynamic composition ... great POV using a slow speed to capture the movement of the traffic. I also like the starlight effects on the lights. Very good lighting management ... well composed. Excellent work! tfs

Hello Salvator. Nice perspectives of this bridge captured at the blue hour. The sky have beautiful tone with the light from the buildings makes a great impact to the shot. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Very nice shot, Salvator. The exposition is very good! I specially like the blue waters and that flag on the background.

Excellent shot Salvator, i like the effect of the car lights in a slow shutter, the blue color of the river and those buildings from below is pleasing to the eye. Beautiful bridge you got here.

great result at this hour, a perfect blue hour shot, bravo ! Nice diagonal with the bridge.

You've chosen a spectacular vantage point to photograph the "second bridge." Presumably, you are on the Anadolu side, looking down at the bridge (or am I reversed?) Fabulous shot, a 5-second exposure appears to have been ideal. The streaks of head light and tail lights are well exposed. There is the beautiful "saray" below the bridge.
Sevgi ve selamlar,

merhaba salvator bey
çok güzel bir açıdan kadraja almışsınız köprüyü.özellikle uzun pozlamanın yarattığı ışıklardaki yıldız efekti nefis görünüyor.ayrıca gökyüzünün renk tonuda çok güzel elinize sağlık.
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-04-28 9:43
impressive control of the light, very well done, excellent tones in the sky, beautiful POV
hergi (5481) 2008-04-28 11:30
Tek kelimeyle mütişşş.. pozlamanın etkisiyle ışıkların yıldız yıldız olması, mavilikk, araç ışıkları muazzam.

You know everybody is not agreeing about the necessity to illuminate the other bridge, and some think it is much better with natural lights than with this array of strong colors. Anyway, I like this one especially because I discover the place at this advanced hour of the day, and the balance between all elements is so good. I am not sure about the deep blue of the Bosphorus, a bit too turquoise, but ı am very sure about the sky, the pasisng traffic and the old building.
