Prolly because you guys are not used to big cities, given that there aren't many of those in Europe.

However, to me, that pic is unremarkable; it could be from Latin America, as it fails to include distinctive features of Istanbul. Things like Bosphorus, Hagia Sopia are unique to Istanbul, even though those angles were shared repeatedly. Eg (another pic that was shared before):

I've lived in both Mexico city and London for several years, so I'm covered in that sense ...I just thought it was a very interesting skyline photo and showed Istanbul from a different angle than usual seen in this thread, that's all ...but please feel free to post any skylinephoto you like of Istanbul...That city looks gooooood from any angle

You have an interesting taste. I think it looks run down and claustrophobic there. But it also looks adventurous, since it looks chaotic.

As dmerdude and doguorsi stated, we don't like these neighbourhoods and usually don't share pictures with them in it...but I'll make an exception just for you

I think the same !

Okay, it is not the usual ste sophia or blue mosque (ssry not sure about the spelling in english). I like to see what is the average urban landscape and not only the very central part.

The 2nd and the 3rd pics are impressive and remind me a bit of Barcelona (greats density of 5 storey buildings) and Marseille (architecture of houses, urban jungle feeling) where i'm currently living. Very méditerranean !
