This my contribution to this week's Friday Theme..

I've taken this photo from the bedroom of my mother's house looking over the neighbour's rooftop on a cold morning. They were ordinary looking chimneys without any historic or artistic value but the rising sun helped a bit ;)

Have a good weekend...

Hi Alaettin,
A very interesting sunrise shot from between these two chimneys. Beautiful red cast in the sky and the silhouettes of these chimneys. I like the positioning of the sun and the smoke.
Very good work and a worthy entry to the theme.
My best regards,

Very nice framing of the sun between the two pots Alaetin.
A simple and graphic image with good composition, well done.

Hi Alaettin,

I like the POV you have opted for this shot!
Great management of light and exposure with superb sharpness and clarity throughout the shot.
Colors are natural and details are fantastic.
A nice addition to this Friday's theme!

Best regards,

Hi Alaettin
beautiful picture. the sun perfectly placed between the chimneys. splendid silhouettes at sundown. nice orange tones. fine capture of smoke coming out one chimney. Good entry to Friday’s theme.

Hi Alaettin

Beautiful red cast in the sky and the silhouettes .Colors are natural and details are fantastic.


hello Alaettin
First entry to the theme and a nice one...
beautiful chimney's silhouette with beautiful sky...
good contrast...
well done... a worthy entry..

Super shot Alaettin, well captured and a great addition to this weeks theme. I like the way the sun is rising between the two stacks which are still in silhouette against the wonderful colours in the sky. The smoke adds something extra to the image too.

Hi Alaettin,you chose a perfect time to capture the setting sun between these two silhouetted, smoking, chimney tops,a good choice for this weeks theme.


I think this is possibly the most picturesque of all of the entries for this week's theme Alaettin.
Although only two colours of black and orange, the composition and framing wins this for me.

Simplicity, but beautiful.

Great work,


Hi Alaettin..nice shot...excellent background tones and colors with nice sharp focus.

Hello Alaettin,

A beautiful shot on the twilight time. The silhouette of the chimney pots is looking aesthetic and raising smoke from them is adding life. Wonderful luminosity in golden atomsphere. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hi Alaettin , needless to say the moment was timely chosen to place the sun disc where it should be right there between the two chimneys ! The smoke coming out of one of the chimney is a nice bonus , thanks for sharing , a great contributon to the theme ,

Hi Alaettin

Nice framing of the rising sun between the 2 silhouetted chimneys. Hoping to get to Ankara in my time off in Erzurum. (Along with many other places in Turkey.) All going well I should be here for a year. The warm cold colour contrast between the red & blue is excellent. TThe rising steam or smoke adds interest. Tfs!
