Istanbul

I visited this city some years back. It is a photographer’s dream. Unfortunately, I barely qualified as one back then. After some reediting recently, I’ve found a few I think are worth sharing.

From inside the gate of Topkapi palace, where the old sultans resided.

    The framing within those first two is amazing. With more experience often comes over-thinking the composition instead of relying on your instincts. Sometimes you see the beauty in a scene and capture it before you even realize what makes it beautiful.

      Thanks! I know what you mean, though. As I’m going through my older pictures, I seemed to torture every angle into something worthy of the old “Batman” TV show. It was a while before I learned to just let the scene do the talking.
