Photographer's Note

This photo was taken today in Haydarpasa Railway Station. It was the best time of the day for the great light conditions, and you can check the clock for the exact time of the day :)

No pp except cropping. All is light and exposure...

I hereby dedicate this photo to bostankorkulugu and inanuc, we had a nice day of photography today...

Please do not hesitate to check the workshops. There, you can see the joy of Mr. Bostankorkulugu, for having found an excellent place for taking good photos...
And the other one has the three of us (Inanuc, Rigoletto, Bostankorkulugu), backstaged by the already famous baloon in Kadikoy...

Haydarpaşa Terminal is a terminus main station of the Turkish State Railways (TCDD) in Haydarpaşa close to Kadiky at the Anatolian part of Istanbul, Turkey. International, domestic and regional trains running to east- and southbound destinations depart from this major terminal which was built as the terminus of the Istanbul-Baghdad and Istanbul-Damascus-Medina railways during the final years of the Ottoman Empire. The first station there was built in 1872 when the railroad was opened to Gebze. However, as the line was extended, traffic increased and a new and larger building was needed. Its construction started in 1906 by Otto Ritter and Helmut Conu, two German architects who chose a neo-renaissance German style. Thanks to its location, it has been very well preserved, even restored following the damages caused by a burning tanker ship in 1979. The building is best seen from the sea, by taking a boat that calls just in front of the station to cross the Bosphorus.
