Dreamy Istanbul

By dmhuynh72
I only brought my wide angle lens to Istanbul and so I couldn't get close to the mosque here, and v2 is crop of v1.

The motion blur on top of bridge is caused by fishermen.

Thank you for stopping by,

Two extremely high quality photographs each with their own unique slant, however always like to view the larger picture in order to get a true feeling of what the photographer is seeing, and ultimately capturing. So for that reason version number gets my vote.

Very nicely done Yung, you have captured the movement in the clouds well, this combined with the calming effect on the sea, make this a great image.

I think V2 is the stronger image but they are both excellent Yung. Very nice light on the Mosque.

Fabulous in both versions.....

Couple of belters Yung, love the cool blue tones and the silky water, I think the 2nd one works best with the tighter crop.

I like the expression "smooth as silk" used above, very fitting for this wonderful image. V1 for me.

Good long exposure images Yung, V2 edges it for me, draws you into the location more

A good longtime exposure

Two excellent shots - both are equally as good - IMHO I wonder if the bottom third were cropped off would it improve it slightly? Just a thought
