This capture is also been made in the famous Celsus Library of Ephesus.
The four woman statues on the fassade are representing : Wisdom - Knowledge - Moralıty and Perceptıon.
And it's a habit within the female visitors, to pose infront of one of them to the photographer !
Bu kareyi de Efes'in ünlü Celsus Kütüphanesinin önünde çektim.
Kütüphanenin cephesine süsleyen kadın heykellerinin her biri : Akıl, Bilgi, Fazilet ve Anlayış'ı temsil ediyor.
Özellikle bayan turistlerin bunlardan birinin önünde poz verip fotoğraf çektirmeleri de adetten !

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Sujet général très intéressant, la note explique le pourquoi de la présence de la gent féminine.
Choix très judicieux.

two godesses in one shot...
Nice taken the moment, Mesut, the place is an interesting location, red some additional info on the Wikipedia web page.
Strong daylight enhanced details of the marble pillars and statue.

A nice "double portrait". I can easily understand that women like to be photographed in this place. They are nicely framed by the marble pillars in this well composed photo. You handled the strong light very well.

This charming woman is well on the way to all 4: Wisdom - Knowledge - Morality and Perception. Because she allowed you to photograph her! Good textural details and thanks for the close up. I only took wide angled shots when I was there last year. Tfs!

The presence of the woman has an effect of scale and is animatong the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the ruins behind the woman. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello dear Mesut,
you created an excellent composition in a vertical frame, making this scene look interesting and not just a cliché shot from a visitor's ritual. Your picture has superb quality that allows us to observe and enjoy the details, textures and colours of the ancient façade. I also like the interaction between the lady and the statue, posing at the same place. Their fashions and poses are very different but they have the same smile:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
