Beautiful shots, Panda81 and Bishop!
A few street scenes from Üsküdar (Scutari), an old district on the Asian side of İstanbul. People naturally oblivious of their historical backdrops, feeling perfectly at home near centuries old works of architecture, some by the Great Sinan.
M8 with 24mm Elmarit.
Thank you, Steve...
Osman, I really like the color shot. It captures a lot of the society, the 1000 words thing and all.
Thank you, James. It was a bit difficult to choose between the color and b/w versions of that shot, now I seem to have made the correct decision.
Nice set, Osman. My favorite is definitely the one with the young woman with the Abercrombie t-shirt in the midst of the old city paired opposite the woman with more conservative dress and the half mannequins. So much to think about in that shot.
Thank you Kurt, shooting at close range with a wide lens obviously has some advantages.
Thank you Lloyd, I have a soft spot for 24 Elmarit...

I love to shoot inside the St.Sophia in İstanbul. This time the objective was to catch intriguing details. Interesting how much more can be seen when I am not in haste.
M8 and 28'cron, camera jpegs.
Thanks for looking,
There's always a lady bathed in light under that majestic dome:
The supporting arches and the ubiquitous pigeon:
Looking out of the window on the upper floor:
not been around for a day or two - so many good images, Osman the first and last on the previous set (lady with torso and coloured one) are great, and the first of that new set as well.
I've been playing around with 35mm focal length again . . . and also the colour recovery in Aperture, I don't usually like it, but I thought it was rather good fun in this situation:
Just this guy you know
Very good pp, Jono.
Thank you for your response to my posts.
Thank you very much, Lloyd. Much appreciated.
Don : awesome pano of the Grand Canyon.
Osman : diffuse light and quiet ambiance, a preference for number one. Istambul, just saying the word, and imagination begins running...
Matt : what a strange place , colorfull and a little disgusting (bubble gums on the wall) !!!
This M9 thing is really good, I see so many good pictures on this thread : this place is my best tutorial place on the net !!
Stef, thank you very much.
