Go ahead with Aphrodisias !
Here the main entrance of the temple of Aphrodite.
One of the two major temples of the antique city.
At the bottom part an "autoportrait" ! It did'nrt disturb me; hope you have the same opinion !
Afrodit mabedinin batıya bakan ana kapısı. Afrodit mabedi şehrin iki ana tapınağından biri.
Ön planda bir "otoportre" ! Beni rahatszı etmedi, umarım sizi de etmez !

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Ton ombre plane sur le Temple et sur ce site d'une grande beauté.
Très bonne mise en image.

You're capturing well this ruin by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the base ground and stone pillars with distance of a fixed interval in ancient temple.
It is also interesting for the physiographic feature of this place which had the gentle mountains in back. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful color combination. And, the shadow projected to the ground draws out a good effect in this image.

beautiful ancient ruins and...excellent shadow of you taking this picture.I really like it as the shadows of you and the columns add some kind of intriguing elements to the compositon.
It´s magnificent composition showing us long and rich Turkish cultural heritage.
Have a nice sunday

The photographers shadow animates this shot. Good sharpness and fine use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Well composed using the rule of thirds and the clear blue sky and late afternoon light enhance the shot of these evocative ruins. Tfs!

Une image nette et bien exposée de ces vestiges très photogénique,bon rendu des teintes des pierres sous cette lumière créant un bon contraste avec le bleu de ce ciel.Au premier plan je constate la présence de l'ombre du photographe!

Loving one self is the magic mantra of living a better life in this stressful world. I also tried a similar shot when I was in Shimla.
I like you POV showing the entrance and the ruins of the temple.

the details of the most interesting site are nice and clear in the brightest of light.
The square format works very well on this occasion.

A fantastic view of this ancient city, I love the vision of the sequence of ruins what could have been a street, elongate your shadow has sidocaptada tells us, with a good light in the afternoon.
Very good management of light and sharpness.
A nice range of colors, which make the image even more enjoyable.
Have a nice day.

Hello dear Mesut,
a very nice picture with a well deserved, discreet "autoportrait" at the fascinating antique city you love so much. Depth and clarity are marvellous and I enjoy very much examining the textures and the details. The landscape ahead and the blue sky are lovely too. I love the warm light and the tranquility of the atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
