[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Landing approach over The Bosphorus Straight, Istanbul. It was Turkish Airlines Air Bus A-319, seat 12A.

The context was the attitude Turkish police prevailed with me on Istanbul airport. But I believe this forus is not suitable to share such mishaps. I'd take the case to Turk official. Regarding the picture, I'm willing to change the title as well as commentary note given in it.

Bom dia Inaam,
It's a true bird-eye, as if the bird was capturing the own wing ;O).
A nice picture with good POV, sharpness satisfactory and very good light. Nice DOF indeed.
Very interesting presentation,

Hi Inaam,
A lovely aerial view of Istanbul with the Bosphorous Straight dominating and the bridge crossing. I like the airplane wing which is creating a depth into the perspective. Lovely atmosphere.
My best regards,

Hi Inaam
fine bird view scenery. the famous bridge connecting Europe with Asia. splendid capture from Air Bus A-319, seat 12A. window clean and as required exposure. good composition with bridge and plane's wing.

Ciao Inaam, fantastic aerial view of Istanbul, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Inaam, it isn't easy taking shots from a plane but you did an excellent job here.
Your DoF is amazing; we can just about read the writing on the wing, as well as seeing far into the distance.
Good idea to include the bridge as it adds further interest.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Nice capture of this world famous straight considering this was taken through an airplane window. Love the colors of the sky. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Inaam,
A beautiful bird-eye view from a Air-bus A-319,
great details of the city of Istanbul,
splendid capture and nicely done.

Often difficult to take shots from the aeroplane window because of tinted glass/perspex but you have produced a good shot of the city and river. A little grain present but it does not detract from the shot. Nice job

Hi Inaam, great capture of the famous "Street" and Istanbul from seat 12A - I like the part of the wing - great light and clarity even through the plane-window.
I hope we will see some pics from Istanbul, you can nearly keep the finger on the button !!
Thanks for sharing and have a good time
Kind regards Monika

Hi Inaam
Did you open the window? (it's a joke)...
I've tried a lot to take a perspective like this and I always failed.
Congrats is a very successful shot with a great depth and a very good sharpness.
