Lake Sevan is a big mountain lake, situated at approx 2000 meters above sea level and covers 5% of Armenia's surface area. Maxim Gorky once said about the waters that they were like a piece of the sky that had descended to the earth among the mountains. On the monastery peninsula, there is the monastery of Sevanavank, consisting of two rather rough churches. One of them is seen in the picture. In the background, there are the Gueghamian Mountains which contain one of the oldest and biggest petroglyph collection in the Caucassus area. Clear blue sky, beautfiul water, mountains, typical church and green grass are in summary, Armenia. In this version, which is closer to the original one, I reduced saturation and noise.

I like this photo a lot. I wish you had a photoof the front of the monastery though. Maybe you do have one and I just havn't found it...The photo is tilted to the right a bit. You could tilt it back to the left so it is centered. I won't post a workshop because I have reached my limit and because it is a simple modification to make. If you wish, I can post a workshop, just tell me. Apart from that, you did a good job with the colors.

Adamlar nereye kilise yapacaklarını çok iyi biliyor gerçekten! Henüz gitmesemde bu fotoğrafın, Van'daki Akdamar Kilisesi'ni hatırlattı bana. Kiliseyi kadraja yerleştirmen çok ustaca. Saturation ile renklerde çok güzel ortaya çıkmış. Eline Sağlık!

I love this shot simply for the contrast of colours alone. But I like the church too, so typical of Armenia. Good perpective too with the church on the right

Stunning landscape..I really like the angle here and the monastery really adds depth to this photo. The colors of the blue sky, lake and sharp green grass are great !
