Istanbul Rising-KayışDağı(from mount of belt)

By Baycan
this is a new series I am just starting it will most probably take time to build in but I will make it !
the theme is that istanbul was first settled around 7 hills/mountains and I will picture from every one single of them and ofcourse one frame for the mountain/hill itself.
Rising metaphorically stands for those new buildings taking place as we see far away underneath those cranes to the left . it really is reaching higher Istanbul. hope you like it

This is a fabulous and striking cityscape Ulash.

Really like the framing here like the city rising from the forest.

I find it is a little strong in contrast and saturation and may benefit from toning down just a little but otherwise this is very good. I look forward to seeing this project develop as it sounds like a great idea.

The mod addition you've uploaded looks like an interesting image in itself. Is this where you shot the large image from?

A grand vista, bu the tonal range is a bit heavy and contrasty. There is also discolouration evident where you have tried to burn in the clouds.

I like the idea, and the project you have set for yourself.

There is some post processing dont on this, and rather than being subtle and enhancing the image, its a little too obvious. The basic shot is very good, and shows the city off very well indeed.

What jumps put at me here Ulas is that the buildings are a lot brighter than the sky, ansd that the trees in the foreground. These trees are in the direct line of the Sun, coming from the left, and though they would be shaded on the right, they would be quite bright on the side facing the Sun.

Theres are fairly small points, but quite important if you want to keep the shot realistic. The processing also has contributed to that effect of an overly high contrast as mentioned by both Pauls.

I have uploaded a mod with a more even exposure, with the sky and the trees brighter, - thats all, no contrast adjusted.

So in summary, very nice basic shot, be careful with post processing, - a lighter tough.
