A Peaceful Afternoon in a Ottoman Village
The village is set on the eastern side of Uludag 12 km. from the Bursa city centre.
Aproximatelly 700 years old village still reflects the Ottoman period..Houses and narrow streets with no sidewalks. It is like a pathway to history.
There are still people living a traditional way of life in these houses which symbolise a cultural heritage.their stands on the streets, selling homemade food,The Most populer fruit is Rasperry also you can try natural rasperry juice.

This is a very nice shot Cengiz. The fainted blue color that seems almost unreal is combined very well with the green leaves that "decorate" your picture. A great inspiration and a great composition. Welldone!

Superb shot Cengiz.
I really like the contrast between the leaves and the wall, both in terms of colours and in terms of texture.
It is a chance that the traditional architecture is less straight than the modern one ;-)

Harika bir mavi ve önünde havada asılı gibi duran yeşil yapraklar.Sanki rüzgar esse yapraklar sallanacak.
Çok canlı ve o derecede başarılı bir fotoğraf.

cengiz bay merhaba,
i love this simple, naive-like image: the "careless" composition (in a ppositive way), pretending to be unattentive makes a feeling of reality of this place, light is exceptional here; very good work;
best wishes, jerzy

What a great composition.
I really liked it the contrasts all over there. It seems like a paint.
Well captured witha a nice DOF and lightness.
PS. I will add u into my favorite list, ok ?

Cengiz, this deep blue is awesome - it has to be my favourite colour for painting a building. It contrasts beautifully with the dark door and shutters. The green leaves provide just the right splash of brightness and complementary colour.
sarju (5324) 2005-11-05 11:55
this would definitely be my favourite photo in your gallery .... very nice contrasting colours in this one ... I am adding this to a theme that i had created ... i hope it is okay with you
cheers .... sarju

Hi Cengiz, what a Beautiful color combination, the tender autumn leaves of the grape in front of that gorgeous blue background color makes it already stunning, but the door and the window really finishes it of.
capthaddock (28790) 2005-11-06 15:10
Merhaba Cengiz - original and artistic composition, the architecture has a rustic charm. Great vivid blue.
lestans (17168) 2005-11-07 3:49
Hi Cengiz!! It is really a beautiful painting! Yes, I say that it is a painting, because of the composition of collors so superb. I must come back to your country! Livia

Very beautiful this blue wall.
I like the contrast which it makes with the plants.
I like this tight framing which gives an abstract and geometrical style to this photograph.

Good Cengiz picture, a very interesting photo by in cuadre and the simplicity of colors, in a simple and beautiful composition, enchants the branches to me of the green, yellow grapevine contrasting with the indigo of the wall.
A good work, congratulations.
A Hug...... Paco

Wonderful picture with beautiful the blue wall, and excellent composition.

I would only say the same thing as the others. that's an amazing picture. wonderful colours and composition. It's good you kept this top frame of the roof, however i think it would be better to make it horizontal not vetical. but that's a petty thing compared to the whole impression i got. great!
jasmis (58397) 2006-01-02 3:45
Excelent photo with old window and old gate. There is something irregular in this photo. Fine effect. Well done.

managua (902) 2006-10-25 9:55
actually yout gallery is full of beautiful photos and I don't know why I chose this one in particular, maybe for its colours.. its colour! This blue is just wonderful, moreover the simplicity of the picture gives it something special!!
The blue, with the green of the leaves and the brown of the wood window.. are a fantastic mix!

meb (766) 2007-01-12 7:37
Very beautiful shot. My favourite color is any shade of blue-turquoise, so this picture is very appealing to me. I also like that the 2 windows are not aligned, this adds character.
I know it is an old posting that I only see today, bur...Bravo!
