This is an old shot of mine (Oct, 2007!)
It's in Istanbul, in the historical centre.
Gьlhane park should be behind me and the wall on the left belongs to the Topkapı Palace.
Was in doubts whether to post it or not.
I like the curve made by the street.
And I am more and more inclined to think
that cables don't spoil a picture:
they help organize the space, add depth, perspective
(of course if you know how to use them
and how to minimize the disadvantages).
I think I played much with the colour:
now it's more saturated, the contrast is higher
(I must have used shadows/highlights in ACDSee Pro).
As for the frame — made in Photoshop just before posting.
I am really lazy to make frames,
though they often help to emphasize the advantages of a picture.
The two guys walking in the foreground are my friends, one from Russia (my university-mate), the other is from Turkey.
* earlier the same day
* opposite side (to the left of the brown house)
* Street-view on harita.yandex.com.tr.

I really like your photo and I agree with you, cables do not necessary spoil a picture if they are well orientated and don't provoque distractions, your photo is a nice example of that!

A great moment of a daily life on the street. So many nice details.

Интересная картина из жизни б.Константинополя. После дождя видимо?
Значит ты вернулся. Закончился контракт? Или надоело?
Я недавно по ближнему востоку проехал. Успел до войны.
Счас вот воспоминаниями живу.
