View to Izmir
İzmir is a large metropolis in the western extremity of Anatolia. The metropolitan area in the entire Izmir Province had a population of 3.35 million as of 2010, making the city third most populous in Turkey. İzmir metropolitan area extends along the outlying waters of the Gulf of İzmir and inland to the north across Gediz River's delta, to the east along an alluvial plain created by several small streams and to a slightly more rugged terrain in the south. The ancient city was known as Smyrna, and the city was generally referred to as Smyrna in English translation until about 1930.
The city of İzmir is composed of several metropolitan districts. Of these, Konak district corresponds to historical İzmir, this district's area having constituted "İzmir Municipality" area until 1984, Konak until then having been a name for a central neighborhood around Konak Square, still the core of the city. With the constitution of "Greater İzmir Metropolitan Municipality", the city of İzmir became a compound bringing together initially nine, and since recently eleven metropolitan districts, namely Balçova, Bayraklı, Bornova, Buca, Çiğli, Gaziemir, Güzelbahçe, Karabağlar, Karşıyaka, Konak and Narlıdere. Almost each of these settlements are former district centers or neighborhoods which stood on their own and with their own distinct features and temperament. In an ongoing processus, the Mayor of İzmir was also vested with authority over the areas of additional districts reaching from Aliağa in the north to Selçuk in the south, bringing the number of districts to be considered as being part of İzmir to twenty-one under the new arrangements, two of these having been administratively included in İzmir only partially.

I don't know if I like these buildings very much, but they are nicely framed by the trees,and the mountains and sea at the horizon.The slightly hazy landscape is very beautiful.

Hi Costantino, very nice view of the Konak Square from a higher vantage point. I guess it was taken at mid-day but despite the strong sun light the photo is beautiful. Congratulations, Tolga

Γεια σου Κωνσταντίνε,
Πολύ όμορφη η φωτογραφία σου από τη Σμύρνη από ένα πολύ καλό σημείο ώστε να φανεί η πόλη σε μεγάλη έκταση και βάθος, ωραία τα χρώματα και πολύ καλή διαχείριση του έντονου φωτός.
Καλή βδομάδα, Βασίλης.

Gostei da visão panorâmica da cidade de Izmir, registrado por sua lente.
Toda a composição ficou bem definido: o movimento urbano, vegetação, montanhas e neblinas...
As cores e contrastes ficam muito bom!
I enjoyed the panoramic view of the city of Izmir, recorded by his lens.
The whole composition was well defined: the urban movement, vegetation, mountains and mist ...
The colors and contrast are very good!

Amazing bird-eye-view of a compact city, this makes a very interesting urbanscape shot in particular love all those textures with view taking us into the far background. A great comp with nice greenery framing fthe oreground and excellent detail. Great perspective and depth, exposure well managed with spectacular sharpness and good colors tones. The hazy/misty in the far end adds a special atmosphere. Sincerely this looks like it can still benefit with a little more contrast. Great effort, Congrats

We do not get many pictures of this metropolis in Turkey, so it is interesting to see the bay and the town built around on a large scale.
Fine view from a high POV, sharpness...?
