Today something different ! This is a view through a series of pipes. All made of steel; has a diameter of 2.5 m, a length of 10 m each and a thickness of 5 cm.
18500 of them will connected to each other and bring fresh water to İstanbul from Melen river. A river, 182 km's east of İstanbul.
On WS you can see two shots, showing those pipes during construction.
Bugün başka bir çalışma. Bu henüz birbirine eklenmemi durumdaki borular çelikten yapılmış ; herbiri 2.5 m çapında, 10 m uzunluğunda ve 5 cm kalınlığında.
18500 tanesi uçuca eklenecek ve İstanbul'un 185 km doğusundaki Melen çayından İstanbul'a su getirecek.
WS da boruların toprak üstündeki durumlarını görebilirsiniz.

Beautiful and very creative composition Mesut!
I like its minimalistic,but so eye-catching and expressive form of presentation.
The light and the way you utilized it to create so amazing visual effect is really something unforgettable.
Have a nice sunday

This is excellent. Fingerprint gave me no clue what is the object here, but with a careful look at the full size one I figured that out. Quite stunning forms where those sunlit curves play essential part.
WS #1 is also so good it would have well deserved being as a main upload too.

superbe photo avec un bel effet graphique

güneş tutulması görmüştüm ama boru tutulması başka güzel oluyormuş. süper!
parvatibb (1085) 2013-09-08 2:24
küçük fotodan ay tutulması diyecektim ama güneşte tutulması da olabilir tabiii!!!
Tebrikler! Şahene olmuş.

Wonderful play of light and shadows, of forms and graphical elements. This is a piece of art in itself.
have a great sunday
PaulVDV (17333) 2013-09-08 3:31
At first I thought you had visited a gallery of modern arts :)
Well, it is you who has created an artwork of these pipes.
Good observers discover beautyness in the most unusual places.
Excellently composed and wonderful play of light and shadow.
Best regards, Paul

I have with a lot attention looked to your two workshop pictures.
I find all your pictures very well, but these picture here is great but extraordinarily through the different tubes as graphical image.
Absolutely splendid done with high quality made.
Lovely colours and pleasant to look at.
Splendid composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
subhendu_bagchi (21140) 2013-09-08 4:58
wow, what a shot. The graphical appeal of this frame is just superb. You used a nice POV to show it. Love the marvellous light management. In one word... EXCELLENT...
batalay (33439) 2013-09-08 5:24
Merhaba Sevgili Mesut,
Until I read your note, I was baffled by what I was seeing. It's a fascinating abstract design comprised of pipes with non-linear centers, perfectly illuminated. Excellent light management, and choice of perspective.
saxo042 (33940) 2013-09-08 5:26
Indeed a different kind of picture with all these intriguing circles. It takes some time to figure out what is inside or outside of these tubes. A very good observation.
worldcitizen (5629) 2013-09-08 9:33
Very creative composition! Most people would walk by these pipes and not think that they are very photogenic, but the use of light and shadow in this photo turn an ordinary object into art. I like the way you have most of the frame in black, making the pipes stand out even more.
holmertz (31380) 2013-09-08 10:01
You have obtained some amazing effects from this very clever shot. Even with your explanation it is not so easy to understand exactly what I am looking at, but the result is still very interesting and beautiful. A most original and graphically superb shot.
macjake (45588) 2013-09-08 10:24
yes, very cool as you say.
I've tried to do the same and it often doesn't come out looking very good :)
but this one does.
I really like the abstract forms, especially with all the darkness surrounding the light circles.
cornejo (22590) 2013-09-08 11:07
Hello Mesut, excellent photography of this beautiful and interesanta composition, well seen and captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
All the best from southern Spain.

Une image surprenante et très originale avec un étonnant effet graphique. Belle idée, bien réalisée.
gildasjan (39558) 2013-09-09 0:15
Bien vu tous ces cercles successifs bien mis en valeur par ce jeu de lumière.
ourania (18738) 2013-09-09 7:33
Hello dear Mesut,
you've found a fascinating abstract quality in this mundane subject using a point of view that's inspired and creative. You've made the most of the pattens you found in the pipe, used excellent framing and supported your idea with superb definition and light management. A picture that's very delightful to view and must have been great fun to capture. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
limielski (2573) 2013-09-09 12:49
It's one of the most creative shots on TE in my opinion. Surprising view!
All the best,
ahmet54 (2985) 2013-09-09 12:55
Merhaba Mesut abi,
ich dachte zunächst das bild gehört zu deiner Serie über Kunstwerke. Die Überschneidung der geometrischen Formen erzeugt interessante Effekte. Danke für's zeigen.
claudeD (27004) 2013-09-09 13:01
Wonderful idea and excellent realization for this very interesting contribution to TE. Like the shot very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
willperrett (4099) 2013-09-09 13:04
Fantastic, clever, original idea for a photograph. Without the note, I would certainly have struggled to identify the subject here. Very good work.
nikkitta (9023) 2013-09-09 18:43
So a photo not a picture?
Great creativity and imagination to compose so strange and also beautiful photo, a true work of art
Enjoy the week and congrats

Selamlar Mesut Bey,
Bu fotoğrafla turnayı gözünden vurmuşsunuz. Çok orijinal ve güzel bir kompozisyon. Gördüğunüz için tebrikler, paylaştığınız için teşekkürler!
Buin (42122) 2013-09-13 3:59
Klasse! ... und faszinierend! Ich habe zwar nicht ganz kapiert wie Du dieses Bild aufgenommen hast und wieviele Rohre hier zu sehen sind - aber das Ergebnis ist einfach sehenswert. Es tut mir leid, aber dieses Foto kommt zu meinen Favoriten! Das hätte ich Dir gerne erspart ... ;-))
Herzliche Grüße aus dem schon sehr herbstlichen Westpfalen!

a volte basta un nulla per creare una bella foto; anche un soggetto banale si può trasformare in qualcosa di straordinario quando l'interpretazione dell'artista riesce a suscitare emozioni particolarmente forti.
In questo caso non c'è dubbio che tu sei riuscito, giocando con il contrasto tra la luce e le ombre, il visibile ed il nascosto , a creare una composizione di granmde impatto visivo, più simile ad una rappresentazione astratta che ad una visione della realtà e bisogna rendertene merito perchè avere ideato e realizzato questa meraviglia fotografica non ritengo che sia stato facile: tanta fantasia ed una eccellente tecnica si sono fuse in una vera e propria opera d'arte.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
serp2000 (33225) 2013-09-17 4:55
Thumbs up! Well done, Mesut,
Impressive optic effect, I like this psychedelic composition. Just a Pink Floyd! ))
marina7 (7162) 2013-09-20 11:44
this is a nice one. Great graphic effect, augmented by the contrast of the dark and light. Very creative work, my compliments.
Have a great weekend!
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-23 10:05
Very clever image! Artistic and creative - very original too. Exposure must have been hard to get right. I like it a lot. Fantastic!
adores (30855) 2013-10-06 16:10
Unusual and very good. It makes us wonder what it really is. I like the graphism, the circles of light and even the plants we can see. It was a good idea to take it!
