Look after the poor, a message from the Mosque Rüstem Paşa Camii seen from the Galata Bridge during the Ramadan. And indeed also at Taksim, a popular meeting place, there were packages of food distributed to poor people.
We arrived yesterday evening by flight in Istanbul and this morning by nightbus to Kapadokya.
Türkiye'den, selamlar var !

You went to Kapadokya this morning????
When i called you i was already in Taksim to meet you but Cath told me you were near Galata Bridge. And i turned back all that long way to home :(( So I thought you were going to catch the flight @ 9 PM but you were taking photos on the bridge (or did you miss your fligt?)! So be it >:(
And i must say, you looked up the map wrong. It is Yeni Cami (New Mosque). Rüstem Paşa Camii is at the right side of the bridge according to your POV. Peeeh!!!
OK. This much scold is enough. I am content now :)
I knew you would have to change your style when you came here. Istanbul is particularly a city of nights, and you had your best chance by taking photos on that time of the day, exact place, exact timing. It is amazing how you immediately got close to natives, this means you will enjoy Kapadokya very much. I love your POV and the use of yellow light here.
Looking forward to seeing you both on Friday :))

Great shot, great story ! Wonderfull pov and great light management, allthough not easy. İt's a great parrallelity. Look after the poor ; and he looks after the fishes !
Deniz is right; it's Yeni Cami and not the Rustempasa (which has only one minarette and therefore never had this light signs in it's history). But it doesn't make any difference, this work is great !
TFS and enjoy your stay in Kapadokya

Heyyy! A Turkish title! And you are here! It's a pleasure to have such a good photographer as a visitor in Turkey. I hope you enjoy your stay. Istanbul has a huge potential for photography and I see that you have already discovered this. As for Kapadokya, I'm sure you'll take great photos there, a magical place worth seeing.

And also congratulations because this is a great photo. Technically is very good, but there is something more: the atmosphere.
Well seen and thanks for sharing.

Wow, this is strong, very strong. I like so much this composition, so close with such great reflections in the water, such good light management. Excellent!

wonderful night shot of Yeni camii and galata bridge.
thaprem (2554) 2007-09-26 1:55
So your opening note on Turkey, raises a lot of expectation for more to come...
The Bokeh on the reflection on the water is memorable...
Nice one here...

Ik zie dat het ginder voor de wind gaat, en onmiddellijk uitpakken met een nacht foto.
Met een hoge ISO en toch zeer weinig korrel te zien. De weer spiegeling en de visser in de voorgrond maken alles ok.
Alles goed ginderachter, niet teveel kippe gedoe, tot wederhoren.
Groeten uit een zwaar beregende dag in Vlaanderen,

as soon as you arrive somewhere you seem finding immediatly the good spot .
I really like the fisherman in first plan and the mosquée in the back plan ; all Istambul in one shot !
very well done !

Kapadokya ya selamlar !

Perfect capture and wonderfull composition.
Cadrage, colours and super artificial light are all excellent in this photo.
Best regards from Ankara.
