Hallo all my Turkish friends! Today photo from your wonderfull city, this time Asian part of it!

It was one of most unforgettable days in my life. Early morning we reached suburbs of Istanbul, left our luggage in hotel and went to see wonders of this city. After quite long trip via European part we crossed famous bridge over Bosphorus [look at my workshop] and went to coffee on Asian continent. Asia - first time in our life. Coffee was in beautifull place, on big hill with fantastic gardens and views to Bosphorus. I saw this Painted Lady on flowers nearby I decided to take few photos of it - just in remembrance of our stay on another continent ;-)

The Wieczorek's are both posting butterflies tonight! This is quite a subdued butterfly with his brown legs and feelers, but it is nicely composed. The fellow looks quite dainty but has good sharpness. Good memories of Istanbul Greg.
Love the WS view too, thank you.

Wow! This is so great Greg! The bg really works wonders in this picture. The blue and the green of the blurred bg are marvelous! The details on the butterfly are very sharp and the composition is strong. Very good exposure. Well done & TFS!


A wonderful photo and note of this moment, Greg!

I especially like the lines in this shot, the angle of the flowers, and the BG.

Sharp focus on the butterfly, I think it is welcoming you to its continent...?

Thank you for letting us become a part of your wonderful trip.

Hi Greg, Very nice capture it looks to me like the bg has motion blur which is intriguing. Interesting composition also. Very nice work.

Hi Greg,
Excellent shot. The compoition and framing look perfect. Great colors and detail. The OOF backround in this one is awesome.

This has an excellent POV Greg. This BG really make the shot fly..Thank You.

Lovely shot Greg!
Colours are very beautiful here, details and framing very good. I just wish the POV could've been a bit better.
Anyway, I like it very much.
