What do you think? Good? Bad?

This one was shot hand held.

Not constantinople?
Why did Constantinople get the works?

Great shot, especially considering it's handheld, must not have had too much of the Turks' famous coffee

Very nice! I prefer the first, as the second one looks too "squished". Maybe play with a slightly tighter crop of the sides? I also don't think the streetlight is distracting. It makes the photo feel more real.

It's really just a snapshot that was taken hand held...
I just say that I'm scouting for locations, with shots that are hand held, automatic extra brownie points earned immediately, with non photographically inclined members of public.

No coffee for me. They have that stuff and tea everywhere! They love their tea for sure. Coffee as well....

It actually wasn't too bad... I shot it f8 and 1/30 of a second....ISO 1600.... the building gets lit up at night and there are a lot of street lights around....

I have even walked around a little bit with the 31mm wide open and got some pretty decent shots...

Thank you! That's pretty cool. I have been trying to get good shots while I am here... there are no excuses here...Back home I complained that there was nothing to shoot (which largely is true) but here... the excuses stop because there is so many things to take pictures of. It doesn't matter what lens you have... there is something here that can be photographed... so in ways I am trying to stretch my legs a little bit.

HAHAA! They will think you might introduce them to Tom Cruise or something eh? LOL!

Around here though I am finding that a lot of people are into photography (big duhh on that one---just look at the place!).... I've seen all kinds of gear including Pentax...this is a very photography friendly city for the most part.

Hey the Kerrowdown only hangs with the A listers, not B listers like this Cruise fellow.

Both are good but I'll take the first one. It has a bit more "atmosphere".

That is the same thing many people said as well. That said other people like the other one... me I go back and forth

That said sometimes the mood and emotion trumps the technicality part of a shot.
