Another view from the beautiful village of Sirince near the antique ciy of Ephesus.
Here one of the two churches of the village can be seen : Church of St Demetrios .The second church is the church of St John the Baptist. The ruins of about a dozen chapels and monastic buildings can be found in various spots around the village. The belief in buried treasures has caused much destruction, so there is not much left standing in architectural ternms. This pretty village,is 30 km. from Kusadasi.The village is a perfect synthesis of Turk-Greek culture as of the 1920s; after the independence war, people exchange between Greek and Turks has occured and all those typical Greek houses,though they kept their orginal outside characteristics,have received the local layout inside.The most beautiful thing is they are open to visitors you will be invited at a house for a cup of Tee,and can see the art of the House.Some of them are chanced to pansions,if you are looking for a peaceful Place, you will be in right way in Sirince .!!!!
Antik Efes kenti yakınlarındaki Şirinceden bir başka görüntü. Bu karede köyün genel görüntüsü içinde, iki kilisesinden biri olan Aya Dimitri kilisesi görülüyor. İkinci kilise ise vaftizci Yahya adına yapılmış ve nisbeten daha iyi durumda olan bir kilise. Köyün muhtelif yerlerinde bir düzine kadar şapel ve manastır kalıntısına ratlamak mümkün. Buralara bazı hazinelerin gömülü olduğu inancı nedeni ile pek çoğu harap durumda. Bu güzel köy Kuşadasına 30 km mesafede olup, Türk-Yunan kültürlerinin mükemmel bir sentezini oluşturur. ; 1920 yıllarda, Türk İstiklal savaşı sonrası yapılan halkların mübadelesi sonucu burada kalan ve rumlara ait evler, hemen hemen aynen korunmuştur. Burada herhangi bir evin kapısını çaldığınızda güler yüzle, bir bardak çay içmeye davet edileceğiniz kesindir. Evlerin bazıları bugün pansiyon olarak hizmet vermektedir. Başınızı dinlemek istiyorsanız, Şirince en uygun yer.

The white houses are the real eye catchers on this image.
Also the different roofs together with the front of the church give a nice composition.
Very well done. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice week,

This looks like a beatiful village and you have brought out all of its beauty, the best way possible. Perfect vertical and "tight" framing, great composition, excellent light managment. The colours are beautiful! Sharpness and overall definition allow us to enjoy several wonderful details. Congratulations!
With my warmest regards,

Beautiful vertical presentation of this anicent Turkish village that displays wonderful contrasting colors as it rises to the lovely cloudless blue sky. Excellent sharpness and clear colors with a very interesting note.

This is a beautiful view of the little village showing how it is built into the hillside. Youhave handled the strong light very well, especially on the white buildings. Good work. The large number of Christian churches in the area is testament to the turbulent history I guess.

Wieder einmal ein schönes Bild - diesmal mit einem großen architektonischen Kontrast. Dieses rohe unverputzte Mauerwerk der Kirche und die weißen, den Hang hinaufkletternden Häuser rundherum - ein interessanter Anblick! Hoffentlich wird etwas für den Erhalt der Kirche getan ...
Grüße aus dem wieder sonnigeren Siegen - aber sehr kühl.

Mesut, this is very nice, I like the old in amongst the newer though in your country new could still be older than anything in mine. Your textures are great and the way you handle whites is fantastic, great capture.
