A gold picture, Hayri. Welcome in TE. The lightining is the strongest element here but also the composition is good. The door seems not to able to resist to the light. Is a God entering? Splendid also the textures of walls

nice composition and very good use of light. I like the great contrast in the shot and how the reflection of the light inside the church shows the details of the antique walls and door. Beautiful colors.

Beautiful composition! Colors, Light, ... Tebrikler!
TomteTim (434) 2005-01-14 11:09
only two pictures so far on TE, but both are brilliant !
On this picture it really looks like the power of the sun will open the door. Also the texture of the walls is perfect - looking forward to more (especially of this region, as I used to live there for a while..)
JennHen (498) 2005-01-14 11:09
You captured the light, and the details, beautifully! Well done.
crabmistress (268) 2005-01-14 11:48

Great Shot!! I liked it a lot! Congratulations from Brazil.
poulinp (4530) 2005-01-14 12:37
Wow, you have just 2 photograph and you are already on my favorite list!
This photograph is both simple and splendid. I have really the feeling that something of imposing, of magic awaits us behind these doors. Is this the passage towards the paradise?
Tue (35420) 2005-01-14 14:05
Great picture! The light through the door is fantastic and I like the warm colours! Well done!
santosh (304) 2005-01-14 14:55
Excellent composition. You have used the light very well. You have the ability to see art in your daily surrounding. Second picture and I am already getting hooked on to your pictures :)

Merhaba Hayri Bey,
Tek kelime ile harika bir fotoğraf. Ellerinize sağlık. Işığı böylesine yakalayabilmek çok güzel. Açıklamadaki sitenizi gezdim. Hemen hemen karbon kopya denilebilecek çekimler yapmışız bazı mekanlarda (Didim, Milet gibi).
TE'ye hoşgeldiniz. Türkiye'den böyle güzel çekimler görmek gurur verici.
dormoy (148) 2005-01-16 22:21
I am afraid I will have to repeat what other people said,. This is a great picture. Nice composition, very crispy. Nice ambience. It is really fantastic. Well done
jrzufferey (7305) 2005-01-17 17:50
Vraiment encore un fois une image très belle avec des couleurs chaudes. Beau travail, amicalement/jr

dışarıda çok güzel bir güne açılan kapı, ışık çok etkileyici.
zeus (1462) 2005-01-18 5:43
I got impressed with the texture of the walls, with the light coming from outside and even with the warm tone of yellow you got. It´s an explendid shot Hayri. The composition is nice.
Hanssie (10790) 2005-01-18 15:14
Fantastic light !
Great and wonderful ( gold? ) colours, very nice done, Hayri !
apazevedo (5469) 2005-01-19 18:21
First of all, welcome on TE, Hayri!
Regarding your photo, I must say I like it very much, the light is fantastic and the composition is very simple but extraordinarily effective and appealing. A very good work!

Beautiful light colours and sharpness. It's all been said before. Fantastic shot!
kent_s (1911) 2005-01-29 14:43
What a great picture. The light coming in around the doors is somehow magic.
The place looks like it was a dark room did you use a light up flash
Tell and teach us
Very well done Hayri
ydarias (679) 2005-03-04 20:09
I like very much the colors, the composition, and the imagination of the photographer. Very good job.

Hayri Bey Merhaba;
Bu kapıyı başka bir yerden hatırlıyorum.Yanılmıyorsam Düzce'de bir ara bir Fotoğraf sergisi düzenlenecekti. Bu serginin ilanı için afişinde bu veya buna benzer resim vardı.
Ayrıca Foto kritik te gördüğümüde hatırlıyorum.
Resim Mükemmel Tebrik ederim.
TBasco (143) 2005-06-29 9:05
i just can't put in words how this image strikes me...
technically the others have said it already. it's the connection that i feel that your work is able to put forward. conncetion to something beyond and yet at the same time within.
coco (30439) 2005-06-29 9:30
Great composition and use of the light. The result is superb.
Rgarcia (220) 2005-08-13 19:49
What a wonderful picture, I like the colors and light.

manoj_olikara (16) 2005-10-25 5:36
WOW!!!!.....Looks like the Holy Spirit making an entry into this Church!!! Picture perfect. The walls, the hooks for the door, very well taken, thanks a ton for sharing, lovely picture.
Stepan (27210) 2006-01-06 15:06
Wonderful and impressive light. The composition is excellent and the contrast pretty good in hard conditions.
MLINES (12516) 2006-01-20 19:17
Very good composition from a simple but interesting setting. The door is a piece of art. TFS.
rajhema (1873) 2006-01-28 11:28
Created a golden glow Hayri. Nicely captured. A usual scene taken unusually. I would have never done that. Well taken.
sufi (9588) 2006-03-18 5:46
Muhtesem bir fotograf... Ne tarafindan bakilsa müthis bir ustalik göze carpiyor... Kompozisyon, kapidan sizan isigin yarattigi büyüleyici atmosfer, pastel renkler, duvar ve kapilardaki eski doku... Mükemmel..
Hakkan (890) 2006-04-03 5:14
Şekil olarak aynı olan bir fotoğrafıma Bab-i Esrar ismini vermiştim. Sizin fotoğrafınızı görünce o fotoğrafı imha etmeye karar verdim :)
Müthiş fotoğrafınızdan dolayı kutlarım Hayri Bey...

thanks for sharing
mornier (42) 2006-06-01 5:45
Right place at the right time but the eye of the photographer makes it all ! Truly incredible, makes me think of the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, when Indiana is in the grave with the pyramid...
MartaW (703) 2006-06-11 17:02
This is a really great photo.
Congratulations and thank you for sharing.

Sanki masallardaki Kaf Daginin ardindaki muhtesem define sizin kapinin arkasindaymis gibi... Isik ve kompozisyon muhtesem. Birgun boyle isikli bir fotografi kendim de cekebilmeyi umit ediyorum.

Merhabalar Hayri bey,
Harika bir kare olmus. Isık, renkler ve netlik cok hos.
Eileen (152) 2009-09-03 19:11
Very nice capture of the light as it appears to be bursting through the doors; it seems to have power.The POV, framing and details of the old walls are great. I'm so glad TE highlights some of the old photos so we can see what has been enjoyed by others previously.
bloublou (144) 2010-04-05 21:26
another 2 points, great play with the lights
