The pigeons are a classic of the stairs of Eminonu Yeni Cami (The New Mosque) which is located on the historical peninsula of Istanbul (Like Trafalgar Square of London). Some old people sell grains to people and some purchase them just to feed them, and some just to enjoy at first collecting the birds around and then chasing them. The fuss is worth seeing and of course photographing.
I tried sepia tones here, please warn me if the make up is too harsh for TE.

Lovely old look to the photo with the Sepia tones. Great composition with the stairs leading the eye into the pic. TFS :-)

first I thought this would be a scanned old photo ... I think it´s a wonderful scenery, a wonderful point of view - and sepia is great for it. Also the framing is well done!

A bit sharper it should be I think or there is smt wrong with the contrast. But it is very good anyway. Birds are always like that: hard to take pictures of. The frame is a good completion of the compo.

Great photography, Deniz.
It has its own style...its charm.
The moment of pressing the shutter ?
Can't even imagine to be more precisive than this...
