Istanbul Trip, Day 7, Scene 4
As soon as we got to Üsküdar, my first instinct was to take a photo of Dolmabahçe. However, I must confess that I do not recognize many of the buildings in the skyline. The old landmarks like Dolmabahçe Palace (right on the opposite shore), Dolmabahçe Mosque (formally, Bezmialem Valide Sultan Mosque, to the left of the palace), Istanbul Hilton (a little to the left of the palace, shoe-box like building on top of the hill with a facade that looks like a radiator grill), Istanbul Technical University Maçka Campus (to the left of Hilton, behind the tall black skyscraper) reassured me that I was in Üsküdar, but the rest of the high rises have mushroomed since my days in Istanbul.
İstanbul’un Değişen Silueti
İstanbul Seyahati, Gün 7, Sahne 4
Üsküdar'a varır varmaz, ilk içgüdüm Dolmabahçe’nin fotoğrafını çekmek oldu. Ancak, ben bu siluetteki binaların çoğunu tanımadığımı itiraf etmeliyim. Dolmabahçe Sarayı (tam karşısındaki sahilde), Dolmabahçe Camii (sarayın solunda resmen, Bezmialem Valide Sultan Camii), İstanbul Hilton (sarayın biraz solunda, cephesi bir radyatör ızgarası gibi görünen tepenin üzerindeki ayakkabı kutusu gibi bina), İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi Maçka Kampüsü (Hilton’un solunda, yüksek siyah gökdelenin arkasında) bana Üsküdar'da olduğuma güvence verdi, ancak geri kalan yüksek binalar benim İstanbul günlerimden beri mantar gibi bitmişler.

Tarihi guzellikler nasil yok olur, bir sehri nasil oldururuz... Bu kareler bunun kaniti. Dalgalar bize zamanin nasil gectigini hatirlatiyor. Ellerinize saglik.

Splendid wide panorama of this side of Golden Horn. I was in this Mosque and saw Dolmabahce but I am not specially interested in high new buildings. Great composition and excellent sharpness, we can see so many details.

A lovely panoramic view about this part of Istanbul.
Very well with the big water front in foreground, and the sky line with sky scrapers. Excellent perspective and depth picture.
A nice composition, lovely presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Great Panoramic shot of Dolmabahce, like the low angle looking across the water. Also not a ferry or gull in shot, that must be a first for a picture of the waters around Istanbul. I think there is to much high rise building going on in parts of our cities around the world taking away the characteristics of the cities.

The title conveys well what you meant, Murat, new skyscrapers built and rise above the "old" skyline.
This is a modern-cities phenomenon all over the world, some places are so rapidly changing, that year following you see a whole diff. view.
Fine clear shot, good DOF across the Bosphoros.

You're capturing well this landscape by a good panoramic view and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm Bosphorus and new skyscrapers in Istunbul. It is interesting that an old building and a modernistic building live together.

a very interesting cityscape. I love the texture of the sea and the sense of movement it evokes, its colour is brilliant too. Your simple composition and panoramic frame are very effective, we can study a wide view of the skyline that proves your expression "the high rises have mushroomed" most accurate. The presence of skyscrapers here and there looks surprising even to me who were not accustomed to the old view. Each building is sharp and clear and the play of the light makes the cityscape even more intriguing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
