Istanbul Trip, Day 3, Scene 3
This photo was taken from the balcony of Istanbul Modern looking southwest across the Golden Horn. On the upper left is the Topkapı Palace complex. To its right, in the middle is Hagia Sophia. At the shore, in front of Hagia Sophia is Sepetçiler Kasrı (Baskeweavers' Kiosk), a distinguished restaurant operated by Swiss Hotel. The mosque on the right is Nuruosmaniye.
The main subjects of this photo are the two tourist boats leaving the Golden Horn, like a mother - daughter about to go on a stroll along the Bosphorus.

How unlucky you were with the weather. In the background all is grey. Shame! Bev had the title Mother and son, you have Mother and daughter. And Gert asked how to recognize the gender :). Nice view of the boats. I also went for such a cruise on Bosphorus and Golden Horn and that was very nice trip.
Warm regrads MAlgo

Inspite the weather condition, the view across the Bosphoros and the marin action on, is very dynamic and with fine view of the town skyline.
Famous monuments "rise" against the sky - but, you could not "turn" the mist away.
Must be a stunning view from where taken.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

I know this spot well as I often get the boat across from the bus terminal in Harem. I can see three famous Istanbul landmarks in a row, Topkapi, Aya Sophya and Sultanahmet at right. Good juxtaposing of the 2 boats in the fg with a third at the back. Tfs!

The distance between the boats and the opposite shore is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the tourist boats. The hazy sky has a special effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

You're capturing well this scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see some historical architecture of backdrop and the two boats with big and small which are sailing the Bosphorus. It's tasteful wet landscape, although it looks like a dreary day.

I like the contrast between the well focused boats in the FG and the blurred BG.
Beautiful composition with soft light.

a lovely scene with the graphical boats and their delightful movement in the foreground, the sea spreading deep in the frame and the fascinating skyline in the background. A strong composition with so much character. I like the dominance of the soft, cold tones and the contrast of a few warm colours. The moodiness is very appealing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

very beautiful comparison, I liked the view of the town ahead and these details we can enjoy.

Good view of the Golden Horn, even with this misty weather! I like the two boats side by side and the mosques in background. Nice atmosphere!
