    A little scene seen from the side of the boat we (the group I was travelling with) were on when we (also) cruised the waters of Bosporus in Istanbul, Turkey, in the evening of Sunday, 12 October.

    (By and by I'm getting round to editing and putting up more pics from that trip, but hundreds are still waiting ... :roll: )

    I like the light on the boat (late afternoon?), how non-chalant he looks sitting on that box, the bow wave, and the fluttering flag. It all makes for an interesting shot, where you keep looking and noticing new things.

    Nice image...and I agree on the lighting. It appears that he didn't even know you photographed him.

    Oh no, he didn't. There are sooo many boats out there on Bosporus, of all sizes, it is a very, very busy stretch of water, and he was just one on a smaller boat, we were on a tourist cruiser boat, and I am sure such tourist boats pass him daily. He was just going his way.

    And the light was extra sweet on that late afternoon/early evening, too true!

    I like this. The warmth of the light, the pose of the guy driving the boat and the flag all give you nice visuals. Good job here.

    But to most this is very boring as a photo, isn't it?

    Not really......We're off to Istanbul, Turkey in the spring of '09. Hope to catch some great shots similar to yours.

    It's got a nice relaxing feel to it and as pixeldawg says, the light is particularly pleasing. The only thing I think it might benefit from would be a little more room around the boat, it has an ever so slightly cramped feel to it at the moment. How many more have you got to process, I'm not sure I've seen too many from that trip yet?

    OK, went to the originals and checked whether I cropped this one somewhat or if this was what I had from the start. Indeed, I did crop it a little... I just wanted to get rid of that other boat or whatever that element in the upper righthand corner is, and of the far bank.

    This is the only one I got of this man on his boat. Like I said: I was on a boat, too, when I took this, going in the other direction, so he approached, passed us, and went by in a very short period of time. Hence this is the only one I managed to take.

    I took many more photos in Turkey, but don't quite feel like posting too many, I can't really make up my mind, you see. They are just holiday pics...
