Sunset this evening over the Golden Horn, Istanbul. There are some minarets silhouetted in the sky top left that counterbalance the ship's mast at right. Taken from the Harem passenger and vehicle ferry that departs from Eminönü. Wonderful to see clear blue skies after days of rain. The name of the boat is 'Kadıköy '

Hi Chris, I like the merging of natural light and man made ones.Tranquil mood- the mad rush is over. A nice part of town, enjoyable for a stroll, especially when one hears the call for prayer in stereo. Regards. Klaudio.

Superb magic hour shot, you've timed this one perfectly just as twilight was falling. The colours are so gentle and beautiful and the clarity is excellent as is the viewpoint. The warm glow of the city lights emphasizes the pleasing atmopshere of this blue hour. The composition is also very pleasant and the photo is technically well done.

The distance between the boat and the buildings in the background is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the boat. The Sunset is giving nice colours to the sky.

De très jolis tons pastels dans cette image de la partie très touristique d'Istamboul. Belle lumière.

So you are now in Istanbul? I have read that the weather is poor recently there. Have you met Deniz? How I like this busy area near Eminonu! It was my favourite. And I went from there to Kiz Kulesi to see it in blue hour.

beautifully captured port scene at lovely time. The Golden Horn looks very pretty at twilight when all the lights are on but there is not very dark yet. Good composition with the shore at nice angle and the boat taking dominating place in the image.
Thanks for sharing

The shot is well exposed and the atmosphere very pleasant. Ideally exposed and with excellent colours and clarity. I like it very much, I just wish my night shots turned out like this!

Quelle belle ville pour les photographes. Ici le point de vue est parfait et nous montre bien le port et les minarets sous une lumière de fin de journée des plus intéressante.

A great capture, god POV. Nice pastel shades as the light disappears.
ourania (44276) 2014-03-15 8:35
a well balanced and elegant composition, a very lovely evening view over a neat and interesting corner of the great city. Everything looks romantic in this light and tinted by the early evening colours. You captured light, colours and atmosphere in a marvelous way. I like very much the deep view into this interesting setting, the warm lights stand out agreeably and provide great reference. I also enjoy looking at the tiny people. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

After reading all coments, not adjetive is left for this impressive capture of this blue magic hour with still a pink horizont
Like the presence of some golden lights (windows, for instance) to give some contrast at the bluish capture
Enjoy Sunday, tfs

If this was taken when the sun was still up it would just be an ordinary photo but the blue hour made this image beautiful. Good pov and nice details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Didi (60588) 2014-03-16 11:57
Interesting picture in the blue hour
Well done for the lights control
Good large version
Better than in Facebook

It was very good to meet up with you on Friday. So, you ended up back in Eminönü after we parted. It looks like you caught a terrific blue hour (or should I call it violet hour?) photo.
It is just lovely.
P.S. After an unexpected stay in Toronto, I am back home.
Angshu (56750) 2014-03-21 2:06
This is 'fresh from the camera' post...We don't ususally see this view often...like the pastel hues in the sky and the two minarets on the left attract interest. Kadikoy in an interesting name of the ship...being I remember, the name of this area itself. Good work!
pili51 (1853) 2014-03-21 16:33
The mild afternoon light gave pink golden tone on the sky over the Marmara. The big vessel draw the attention, but placed off-center allow a farthur view on the local port.
Fine clear details, well collected.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Usually when I see photos of the Golden Horn at this time of the day, it's always crowded but here it isn't. I like the composition and specially the light and the evening colours. A very nice atmosphere!
