    Hi Ney
    Another fine piece of elegance from your native homeland.
    If you look closely you'll see many smaller details that pack alot of visual punch.
    And the tall vertical upwards pov works well to initially draw us into your scene.
    Fine exposure even in the under parts too.
    Nice post
    Cheers

    Hi Omid
    So these people are all going down to see the Geyser?
    There are so many people, even way into the depths of the scene.

    Really like the subject and how you once again whow us something new and different from Iran.
    When i think about Iran, i do not think about Geysers :)
    Wonderful TE post.

    Hello Saber,

    Where the architect has designed a symmetric view, we should celebrate the symmetry. I like this image very much, especially with the clean crisp colors and resolution. The depth-of-field is outstanding.

    Warm regards,

    Salam Omid,

    I like expansive scenes like this, with the long line of visitors making a pilgrimage to the geyser, amidst the parched land and rugged mountains. Good composition and resolution,

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    As an old soccer player, I am always interested in scenes from a soccer field, no matter the level of competition. The linesman is doing his job, and regarding your engaging note, your son's team showed improvement. It is better to lose "five-nil" in the afternoon after losing "six-nil" in the morning than the other way around.

    Warm regards and best wishes for Memorial Day.

    Salam Ahmad,

    The two image create an abstract diptych and are quite complementary, as are your notes. I hope you don't think it is a cop out, but it is really quite difficult for me to pick out as the better of the two. I've gone back and forth. I actually like the work on the left better, since it is reminiscent of the spirals in Leonardo's depiction of a storm over landscape . The one on the right appears to have a pair of embedded eyes and quite haunting.

    By the way, I believe you live in Saudi Arabia. But if you are in Qatar, or periodically visit the country, would you click on the website, Bulent Atalay, created by my publisher (National Geographic). There is a flag counter on the lower right side. Each new country from which the website is accessed raises a flag. I believe, there are 40 flags from Saudi, but none from Qatar.

    Many thank and warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hi Ryszard
    oh yes, I see you loud and clear.

    Easy to like this one.
    this is a famous style of composition that we often see from Poland.

    I guess you could have chosen to leave out the sky or put it in...having it in helps with the overall sense of what we're looking at - making it less abstract.

    excellent color combinations and sharpness.
    Cheers

    Hi Carlo
    so what is behind door #1? haha
    I'm hoping its a good gift, perhaps a new camera?

    I wonder if that green on the door is moss or algae, I think it is...i don't think it's paint!

    wonderful textures, wonderful old subject thats falling apart but trying to hang on.
    nice one

    Hi Silvio
    wow...easy to see why many TE members have already been enjoying this one.

    first of all, those clouds are outstanding, I wish I could have those in all of my photos :)

    and I like seeing the large mountain in the bg with the textures running down the hills.

    the town and their rooftops just put it over the top.
    splendid shot for many reasons
    cheers

    Hi Mesut
    wow, those are some beautiful tall trees!
    seeing those trees, the green hills, and the grey brooding skyline almost make me forget about the ancient ruins in the fg.

    wonderful light! the exposure is perfect.
    well done

    Hi Federico
    love this one!
    Jama Mashid was one of my favorite places we visited in ALL of India!

    such a beautiful Mosque.
    in your photo, you don't even need the Mosque in the bg, the colors of the saris and their reflections are A+

    excellent scene, well done

    Hi Nicolas
    its not too often we get to see the fisherman in his boat moving away from us like this, taken from behind.

    I like that you left out the skyline, focusing in on just the marina-type subjects.
    there's nothing in the frame to disturb the scene.

    funny looking yellow color on the water too.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Serge
    Oh i remember this view quite well :)
    lots of good memories from here.

    the time you took this photo it looks a little hazy, but thats not your fault :)

    I like how the dome towers over everything else, and how it dominates the scene.
    enjoy your Sunday

    Hi Ike
    I guess we'll be seeing this scene more and more now that the weather is getting warmer.

    this is one of those photos which are a good reminder to us all to get out of the house and get some exercise :)

    a warm and friendly photo for today.

    Hi Takero
    we don't get to see the back's of people very often in photographs, so this one is quite unique in that way.
    think about it...it just doesn't happen much at all.

    and we get to see a glimpse into the past too, lots of history and culture here.

    good idea to capture the scene in this way.
    cheers
