Merhaba Merhmet Bey,
Zengi malümatli bir notla, Istanbul'u iyi tanitmissiniz. Fotograf da zaaten kat kat sahane. Tabii havada fazla is var, fakat 12.8 millionluk sehirde de o kadar olur. Çok güzel bir kompozisyon. Acaba o en yüksek gök delen ne binasidir?
Selam ve saygilar,

A very beautiful and original view over that incredible city. I like the pink foggy day and the contrast of new and old planes. Well seen, good capture.
