The Maiden

The classic shot you have to get when you're in Istanbul and probably the best sunset location in the city. I wasn't lucky enough to get some clouds that day, but the colors were stunning.

Wonderful colours in the sky and structure but whatever the thing that is blurred just to the left of the building is a little distracting as its just a black mass. Im gathering its a very slow moving boat.

Yeah that disturbs me too.

It is the ferryboat that transports people from and to the tower, and it's tied to the platform. It only moves every half hour, but by then the light would have been gone.
