I know there is something missing in the picture such as birds, poeple... but I waitted here about 10min :) but no one in the frame. :)
About : The German Fountain (Turkish: Alman Çeşmesi) is a gazebo styled fountain in the northern end of old hippodrome (Sultanahmet Square)and across from the Mausoleum of Sultan Ahmed I. It was constructed to commemorate the second anniversary of German Emperor Wilhelm II's visit to Istanbul in 1898. It was built in Germany, then transported piece by piece and assembled in its current site in 1900. The neo-Byzantine style fountain's octagonal dome has eight marble columns, and dome's interior is covered with golden mosaics.

Congratulations for your first thousand points.
A day with snow are not a lot people along the way, perhaps when she see a photographer be everyone a little bit shy.
Sharpness and clarity are superb.
All details make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.

Merhaba Atılgan Bey
kar yağarken güzel bir çalışma
arkadaki fonla beraber etki çok iyi
Zengi001 (2585) 2012-02-15 4:31
Gene güzel bir kar manzarası Atılgan,
Çeşmeyi biraz ortalayıp büyük ağacı da kadraja alsan fena olmazdı sanırım.

with this weather it's difficult to get someone in the image...the picture is beautiful itself, the snow creates a magical atmosphere,
patdeph (35748) 2012-02-15 7:17
it was the same in France, with the very cold weather and the snow, there was nobody outside.Anyway, this is a beautiful fountain,and the snow add a nice interest.

There's lots of enticing architectural detail in this winter scene and the way you framed it accented the geometrics very well. And the snow again adds atmosphere. Very well done.
maria-v1981 (10814) 2012-02-15 11:25
With so much snow it is reason that does not exist any bird or people. Intresting architecture and as I can distinguish this German Fountain is so colourful. Very good sharpness and pov.
Have a nice evening,
ourania (32825) 2012-02-15 12:08
I like very much this elegant composition and its framing. Like all your snowy pictures it's very sharp and manages to capture both the beauty of the place and the winter atmosphere. I like the detailed presentation of the german fountain next to the other one and among the delicate trees. I also like very much the light and the silence of this picture and I don't mind at all the lack of people in it. Well done!
All the best,

merhaba Atılgan Bey,
Karın etkisi bu karede de süper..
Yağan karla birlikte çok güzel bir seri oluşturdunuz.
Bu da çok güzel, başarılı bir çekim.

Merhaba dear Atilgan
I think it looks great without people. The heavy snow and the detailed mausoleum look so stark composed in this way. Fantastic shot, beautifully exposed and contrasted.

Dobar tekst sa datim podacima ...
Kod nas mecava, duva jak vetar i pada sneg.
Lepo mesto sa starom fontanom i trenutak sa snegom, lepa fotografija.
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i prikaz.
Verilen veri ile iyi bir metin ...
Bizim kar fırtınası, kuvvetli rüzgar ve kar üfleme.
Eski bir çeşme ve kar, güzel görüntüler bir an ile güzel bir yer.
İyi görüntü netlik, kontrast ve ekran.
mkamionka (30903) 2012-02-16 8:32
it is funny -I usually wait forever to get rid off people and cars and have a clean shot like that :)
I guess it is the matter of taste.
This is another excellent winter capture with evident snow in the air. Plus the structure emerging from behind the snow seems really attractive.

I remember this beautiful fountain and I like the composition and the decorative details, beautiful winter atmosphere, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!

Isn't easy to take so well the beautiful colors of the fountains in this light and under the snow.Great and professional work,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.

Good Morning Atilgan,
The fountain certainly boasts beautiful architecture, given a further sense of romance with the fine white covering and the drifting snowflakes.
What I find most interesting is the similar structure in the b/g. For me, it produces an impression of a reflection; a miracle if the snow can produce reflections!!!
Have a lovely day,
danos (87923) 2012-02-18 2:56
one more nice snowy image with the German fountain to be surrounded from the snow flakes. I like the beauty of the place with the details to still good between the snow.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Kar yağışlı fotoğraflarınızdan bilgilendirici notunuzla birlikte bir başka güzel kare ve sunum daha Atılgan Bey. Elinize ve gönlünüze sağlık.
Not:Soldaki kubbenin aleminin ucu sola doğru eğilmiş. Yetkililerin dikkatine sunulur...

Hi Atilgan, looks like this one has better weather conditions than your previous post. I like the mirror effect of that structure, simply interesting! Love the clarity and sharpness despite the snowfall. Great work!
all the best,
mauro61 (52623) 2012-02-19 9:56
la nevicata avvolge la scena e la particolare architettura.
Ben ripresa l'immagine con un buon taglio
ikeharel (58921) 2012-02-23 9:19
instead of birds you had the snow-flakes flown around.
Not an easy task taking snowy picture amid the storm.
Well managed, my cong.'s.

عکس بسیار قشنگ وزیبای است .
jmdias (56625) 2012-03-06 6:33
very beautiful the shapes of this fountain. I liked the visual effect of the snow here. nice job under hard conditions.
milad_abazari (1648) 2012-03-08 7:08
A view of the stunning architecture and good in this winter beautiful snow.
With respect of the b.c.
kato (11630) 2012-03-13 16:51
This is an interesting architecture, so it's impressive to see the fountain with the style of dome and elegance. It looks closely to art more than the fountain. A good historical architecture.
