The sun is setting behind first Bosporus bridge of Istanbul connecting the European and the Asian continents. In the distance you can see the sight seeing trinity of Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Ortaköy Mosque right below the bridge, while the foreground represents a very different city of simple fishermen that still use that jetty to set out with they tiny boats.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements.

Maybe this is too much editing but I'd absolutely love you took the background (from the level of the water and above) and centered the bridge. Obviously that's a bit of work but the blend would be easy because of how soft the water is. There's just something about the bridge that distracts me. I think it's likely not naturally level but I wonder if you could make it so in the photo.

These are all really specific suggestions, but when you start to get really particular about your photos, little changes like that can really make the difference.

I’m nor sure I understand what you mean exactly. You mean take the whole top part of the photo and move it to the right?
