This is different point of view from me . I think you like it.
Have a great weekent my TE friends.
Switzerland -->is one of the most mountainous countries of Europe, with more than 70 percent of its area covered by the Alps, in the central and southern sections, and the Jura, in the northwest. The Swiss Alps are part of the largest mountain system in Europe, and are famous for their jagged peaks and steep gorges. There are several ranges within the Alps, including the Pennine range, which has Switzerland’s highest peak, the 4,634 m (15,203 ft) Dufourspitze of Monte Rosa. The Jura (Celtic for “forest”) are much lower and smaller than the Alps, and are popular for cross-country skiing. The renowned Swiss watchmaking industry began in the Jura Mountains.
Between these two mountain systems lies the Swiss plateau, about 400 m (about 1,300 ft) above sea level in average elevation and some 50 km (some 30 mi) wide; it extends from Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) in the extreme southwest to the Bodensee (Lake of Constance) in the extreme northeast. The plateau is thickly studded with hills. Between the ranges of the Alps and Jura also stretch long valleys connected by transverse gorges; one such valley is the Engadine along the Inn River in the southeast. Nearly every Swiss valley is traversed by streams, often interrupted by picturesque waterfalls, including the Staubbach Falls (about 290 m/950 ft) in the canton of Bern. The principal river system is formed by the Rhine and its tributaries. Other important rivers are the Rhône, Ticino, and Inn. However, the Swiss rivers are not navigable for any appreciable extent. Switzerland is famous for its many lakes, particularly those of the Alpine region, known for their scenic beauty. The most important include Lake Geneva, Bodensee, Lake Lugano, and Lake Maggiore (at which lies Switzerland’s lowest point, 194 m (636 ft) above sea level), which are not wholly within Swiss borders; and Lake of Neuchâtel, Lake of Lucerne (Vierwaldstätter See) and Zürichsee, Brienzersee, and Thunersee, which are entirely within Switzerland.

What a very fine image, Burak. The color is very eye-catching. I do kind of wish the focus were on the face rather than the '6', but still a wonderful moment captured--full of life and joy.

Hi Burak, A good action shot to capture the lovely child play picture. You have well made use of the shallow DoF. The red shirt well contrast with the child’s white face.

Hi Burak, having the face partially visible made this a great shot.. vivid colours and low dof look beautiful, not to mention this cute kid..

Out of beaten track you have captured this image nicely. Usually people want to take pictures of kid focusing their face. But the kid looks cute in his 36 red dress. Well done.

I love this kind of dedication to other members, which contribute for a better spirit of sharing in this virtual space. I kind of miss the jat d'eau in here...just kiding. Good portrait of the child in red playing with the stones. A sharp image with very good quality and a good use of the DOF, to make the background blurred.
Have a nice Saturday,

A picture of children gives always something apart, the red attire with the number 36 make the picture very well presentable.
Also a very interesting note!
Have a nice sunday,
