On Saturday and Sunday, it was drizzling. Today, it was downright raining. It was a good day to go to a mall. Istinye Park has a nice food court / farmers' market area. We had a late lunch in that area under these false skies. It sounds like it will be my only blue skies experience during this visit.
We chose to eat at "osmani" (one of those modern names that is not capitalized) because it was featuring eastern Black Sea cuisine. I had my first taste of Kefal Pilav and Laz Böreği, my, were they yummy!

Hi Murat, I guess this is the only place that one can find blue sky on 24/24. I like your perspective which leads from the open FG to the crowded market in the BG. It not only gives great sense of depth to the composition, it also tells the size of the mall too. Nice harmony and calm atmosphere with nice light. Great clarity from near to far. Thank for sharing
and it definitely worths my 2 points

You're capturing well this food court by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see many kind of food shops and many customeres taking the food in table. Nowadays, we see well food corner of these type at shopping center or mall. It looks like convenient for customers because they can choose their favorite food from many kind of foods at one site. And, it's also impressive in the trompe l'oeil in ceiling.

This looks like a much more pleasant place than an airport. This here is a place where you can eat and shop and simply enjoy life. A very enjoyable picture with many fine colours and details. The "sky" above makes it even more pleasant.

This looks like a very enjoyable place. Just the idea of indulging in various Turkish delicacies makes it very tempting. Eating is really one of th pleasures of a visit to Turkey. In spite of the artificial sky covering the area the floor looks wet from rain, or is it just so perfectly polished? There's a good light and very pleasant colours and a generally nice atmosphere.

Excellent improvisation to enjoy the blue sky under a covered area :-). This is an excellent photo from the mall in Istanbul. I like the nice perspective created by the counter. The ornate lamps present a nice atmosphere. Beautiful shot. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. Apologies for the late response.

Hopefully you will see real blue skies soon.
Nice depth to the shot, plenty of colour and sharpness.
PS. it will be 3 years tomorrow 12th when we went to Istanbul and hopefully the weather will change for you.
We had blue skies but a bit chilly.
Enjoy your time in Istanbul.

The "sky" looks almost real, Murat, and the vibrant archade is very dynamic in scale.
Well collected the indoor's of this place, good light and fine details collected.
Fruits and vegtables gave extra vivid colors to the image.

This is quite deceiving, the floor looks wet while the sky is nice and sunny blue?? I guess if the weather is not going to cooperate, your forced to go with the next best option...indoor + food = a good time just as well. :) At the very least, you were rewarded with a version of fun in the sun, even as a painted replica. With the faux sky, this could virtually pass for a Vegas casino. Still looks and feels outdoor'sh though, just have to use a little extra imagination. Glad you enjoyed the meal. Have a great day ahead. Take care.

Merhaba Murat bey,
sanırım yağmur sonrası çektiniz, temiz berrak bir fotoğraf olmuş. Derinlik hissei var .
Bir de tavan ilginç geldi bana, cam var da gökyüzü mü görünüyor yoksa gökyüzü temalı bir tavan mı yapmışlar ayırt etmek zor :)

very nice the interior view of the artificial sky that cover the area protecting the visitors from the rain,and generally the bad weather conditions. I like the excellent light and colour management as the creative perspective.

merhaba Murat Bey,
Günlük yaşamın içinden netliği ve ışıklı görüntüsü ile güzel bir paylaşım, emeğinize sağlık.

Good use of lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The fake cloud studded blue skies add interest. Hopefully you will see the real thing on Friday. The people here animate the scene. Tfs!

very attractive presentation from this original mall. It seems quite elegant. You have captured a lovely atmosphere here with the blue hour feeling even if the sky is not real.
Very well done,
