Another in this mini series of ancient amphitheatres around the eastern Mediterranean. This one is in Ephesus ('Efe' in Turkish) and a short walk from the more famous library ruins. Ephesus in in south western Turkey which was known as Asia Minor back in the day.

La présence des gens a un effet d'échelle de grandeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'amphithéâtre d'Ephesus. La bonne luminosité valorise les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Like old greek and roman ruins, so much has happened in them, good capture, well composed with good pov to show the amphitheatre in contrast with the exterior landscape
Well done, congrats
Kind regards and thanks for your tips
I visited Epidauro, in Greece, really quite similar,it is surrounded by the same kind of vegetation

This remarkable amphitheater apparently seated 25,000, and the modest population-to-seating of 12, would suggest the city had a minimum of 300,000 inhabitants. Did you ascend to the top and listen to people conversing at the focal point of the paraboloid structure? Beautiful photo!

Impressive view of the half-vrescent amphiteatre.
Roman architecture at its best, I am sure that the acoustics when sitting even at the highest row - is superb. a complementary view over the forest on the mountains.

I've been there once, it was a quiet spring afternoon with a warm light that gave a yellow tint on the marbles of the fascinating ancient city. I like very much the depth and perspective of your picture, your composition is rewarding and interesting. I like this strong, clear light too. The shadows define the architecture interestingly, the natural colours look so familiar and lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
