Galata Tower is a medieval stone tower in the Galata district of Istanbul. The tower was built as Christea Turris (Tower of Christ) in 1348 during an expansion of the Genoese colony in Constantinople. There is a restaurant and café on its upper floors which commands a magnificent view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus.
I took this picture from Suleyman The Magnificent Mosque which is located one of the 7 hills of Istanbul.

Sıradanlığa meydan okuyan harika bir bakış açısı. Netlik, renkler, kompozisyon, kısacası tüm unsurlar mükemmel. Ah bir de sağdaki ağaç dalları olmasaymış :(
Elinize sağlık. Selamlar,

Très beau jeu d'ombre et de lumière au premier plan faisant ressortir à merveille l'arrière-plan de la composition.
Les détails sont surprenants. Le contraste entre l'ancien et le nouveau est extraordinaire.

Bakış açısı ve kadrajı ile çok güzel bir İstanbul karesi.
Kubbenin üzerindeki gölgelerin etkisi çok hoş oldu.

I'd never scene the famous tower from this pov.
Good dark tones in the colours too. I like this one.

Hello Altigan ,
The POV is excellent , to show us all these roofs and towers . Good inclusion of the dome in the FG .
Well done .

ben ripresa la torre al centro dell'inquadratura con il piano in FG a sfocare per mettere in risalto il resto dell'immagine.
Avrei dato un po' più di luce al cielo,

A fine perspective over this town.
The Galata tower makes an excellent focal point and is nicely natural framing.
Excellent contrasts between new and old architecture.
mafegan (8624) 2012-01-16 20:02
The bare branches and the foreground dome provide a good frame for this city scene. Great light. Cheers, Marlene

A very well balanced composition with the dome covering the foreground. I like the shadows casting on them and the bright view of the city in the back. Beautiful architecture of different styles with superb colors and sharpness. The colors of the buildings stand out under the gray sky.

Composition and presentation are pleasant
Very well done, TFS.
Tebrikler ve selamlar,

Merhaba dear Atilgan
A good POV and good play of depth of field. I am intrigued that at f/20 the dome in the foreground is still slightly blurred. Is this because of the focus points you were using?
jurek1951 (42156) 2012-01-17 7:59
Excellent contrast and presentation,
good colors and sharpness.
Excellent point of view,

Pigeon eye view of the architectural blending of medieval with modern, all in fine resolution and warm tones.

Very interesting and attractive urban & architecture picture!
Special regards to the chosen pov, composition, management of light and colors!
TFS - congrats,
ikeharel (57256) 2012-01-24 10:38
The F20 aperture made a special dark tone on scene.
Yet I must write about the diff. in close-range depth to far side, that a bit blured the foreground.
The clearity on the BG buildings is super.
mkamionka (30628) 2012-01-27 2:07
beautiful view of this famous tower. Very original framing and POV. I like the unsharp elements in the foreground. The play with the DOF creates a great effect. The panorama is fantastic, so sharp and so well lit plus set against a darker sky. Great effect!
Very well done!
siolaw (38278) 2012-02-02 10:03
You have nice colours and luminosity here, and a nice view to start with! I could do without he dome and branches in the FG, but they are not really disturbing and give some depth.
