Imate lepe fotografije u galeriji sa vaseg putovanja.
Lep pogled ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepa panorama.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazan manastir i priroda.
Snimajte sa blendo f-11 i 16, zbog vece dubinske ostrine.
Pradeda moje supruge bio je kaludjer u manastiru Hilandar na Svetoj Gori, imao je veliko zvanje.
Napustio je porodicvu u Makedoniji i nesato, kasnije se saznalo da je na Svetoj Gori u Manastiru, gde je ostavio trag svojim radom.
Prijatan dan i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Am I right in thinking that (perhaps until recently), no women were allowed in this area? No matter: this is a beautifully composed landscape shot, with nice true colours. The monastery perched on its point is clearly the focal point, well offset from the centre of the frame.

First your picture. Great sharpness, coulor saturation and framing with the amazing building on the left attracting attention. Flawless.
So you travelled Mount Athos. Great. I did the same 15 years ago. It was one of the most amazing journeys of my life. I felt cast back in time at least 500 years. Some of the monasteries didnt have electricity, running water or had a hole in the upper overhanging tower wall for a toilet. But the monks welcomed us with amazing hospitallity and a glass of ouzo in particular. As a male monk community Mount Athos lacks the presence and cheerfulness of women and children but the memory of the unspoilt countryside, the incredible medieval buildings and the kindness we encountered will last my lifetime. It was an overwhelming experience. The reason why I elaborate on this is that i hope you can relate to it a bit. Greece is in dire straits nowadays but i sincerely hope the monastery you show will not become a club med or a russian owned hotel in the future. Nevertheless, the reason why i give you my points is the quality of your picture as it should be on TE.
