For the legend of fish lake please see my first Fish Lake picture.
Today in Urfa, in the sacred lands of Abraham, people believe that these fish are still swimming in the same water, as the silent and alive witnesses of this legendary day which was an hopeful instant in the history of the ancient struggle againist the explotation of humans by other humans.

Bonjour, cher Atilgan,
Un cadrage réalisé avec beaucoup de soin, permettant de donner de l'espace et une visibilité très intéressante du sujet.
La bande de poissons est excellente au premier plan.
Quant à l'architecture environnante, un pur régal.

superb capture of the fish here, not always easy to get them to be so distinctive but this is marvelous. Set against a stunning backdrop and in wonderful light. An original and attractive composition. Well done!
Regards - Brian.

Merhaba dear Atilgan
What a magnificent place to find for us. I've never seen this on TE, it's so beautiful. I like the vertical frame, the fish are an added bonus, as is the beautiful historic architecture. Wonderful natural colours and good sharpness.

Diagonal perspektif süper. Derinlik mükemmel,
Kaçış noktasına da tepeyi oturtmanız şık olmuş bence.

Bakış açısı, yansımaları, netliği ve arka planı ile çok güzel, başarılı bir sunum, tebrikler

Merhaba Atılgan Bey,
Değişik bakış açısı ve kompzisyonuyla harika bir çalışma olmuş. Gölün renginin yakın plandan başlayarak sürekli değişmesi, göldeki balıkların hareketleriyle yansımanın durağandan dinamiğe geçişi ve finalin tepe ile tamamlanması hepsi çok uygun olmuş. Teknik unsurların detayına girmeye zaten gerek yok. Çok beğendim. Elinize sağlık,

Wow! What a great post of this wonderful place! Really successfully taken image with superb quality. Bravo!
jacquest (18549) 2012-01-24 17:14
The image has interesting deepness. The person standing by gives a sense of perspective. The reflections in the water are nice and frame the fishes well. The colors are natural and there is excellent sharpness.

Bonjour, cher Atilgan,
Une bien belle photo du Fish Lake d'Urfa, ou les carpes sacrées d'Abraham barbotent depuis 1500 ans... L'image est bien composée, le cadrage renforce leffet de profondeur. Lexposition est parfaite. Les couleurs sont très bien contrastées. Un grand bravo.

Lepo mesto i trenutak sa ribama koje plivaju pri povrsini.
Lep pogled na deo dzamije i kuce u daljini na brdu, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar trenutak snimka, perspektiva i prikaz, lepe boje.
Güzel bir yer ve anda yüzeye yakın yüzmek balık.
Tepe, iyi bir kompozisyon üzerinde mesafe cami ve evlerin görmek güzel.
İyi bir kayıt süresi ve görüntü perspektif, güzel renkler.

Nice perspective and mixt of blue and golden colors. Light and reflections are very nice. The fish give a specific texture and color to the water which a strong contrast with the rest of the lake.
jemaflor (83619) 2012-01-26 4:24
Good idea for this vertical format, interesting monument of course and also great effect with these brighntness reflection on the clear water, interesting the details with fishes.

Merhaba Atilgan, nice photo from one of my favourite towns in Turkey. Colours and reflection are good due to the well chosen time of day. cheers, Steve

Good morning Atilgan,
nice and well chosen the POV with the presentation of the lake and the building above to creates depth and perspective in the scene.The fishes on the foreground are really true that legend of the place.
Have a good weekend,Danos

The framework is peculiar but it seems to work out very well. Seems that framing created a seemingly wide view on this scene, maybe the portrait format worked well. Love the colors in this image, the clarity and sharpness is outstanding as well. The reflections are a bonus. Interesting place! Looking forward to more of your posts!
P.S. I see that we use the same camera system, how is it? How long have you been using it? Are you loving your d5000?
faletiz (10759) 2012-01-29 3:56
wonderful perspective! A great composition, very harmonious, with beautiful colors. Well done, I like!
mauro61 (52623) 2012-01-30 11:17
tantissimi pesci nel FG di questa vasca in una immagine che mi colpisce per la luce e per la brillantezza dei colori.
Ottimo il POV con la vasca che conduce lo sguardo alla collina sullo sfondo,
siolaw (38274) 2012-02-02 0:01
Nice light and colours with good sharpness too. You have here an extraordinary foreground with all the fish in transparent water, and a beautiful view on the hill and monument.
ikeharel (55948) 2012-02-02 4:02
Long view with excelent depth on the sacred place, view on the multi-culumns edifice, under fabulous bright day.
Overwhelming sight, and POV chosen show many elements in picture.
ruisc_pt (10527) 2012-02-03 4:46
I like very much the way you captured this image and the outstanding clarity of these sacred waters.. I believe.
milad_abazari (1648) 2012-02-03 21:52
Hello ... ...
Your picture is very beautiful. Excellent contrast. Good color ...
batalay (35355) 2012-02-05 21:13
This is one of the best shot I've seen of the famous pool/lake in Sanli Urfa. It gives a true idea of the extent of the water, and the high density of fish present. I have never visited South East Turkey, but I'm drawn to it by the rich history. Nearby Göbeklitepe has been the featured story in National Geographic, Archaeology and Smithsonian Magazines as the earliest known temple complex anywhere in the world. The anthropologists are rethinking the long held belief that the invention of farming, specifically einkorn, 10,000 years ago as the headwaters of civilization. Now the emerging theory has the building of religious temples (Göbeklitepe 12,000 years ago) as the signaling the birth of civilization. In your business, you must know this area well.
Selam ve sevgiler,

A picture that's taken from a great point of view
and has a great composition and light management..
sevy (15359) 2012-02-07 0:51
Very nice shot. First for the composition on vertical frame, well balanced and giving originallity thanks to the fishs in foreground. Then for the colors rendering and the color contrast between gold and blue.
Angshu (55373) 2012-02-07 20:47
This is an impressive picture, almost 2 pictures in one. The mosque & the reflection would have been a nice picture by itself, but its the fishes in the FG which add a good dimension to this picture. You really framed & exposed this well. good work!
Morteza_E (879) 2012-02-08 8:35
With the Hello.
A beautiful image with exposure well.
geoant68 (331) 2012-02-10 23:36
beautiful the fish lake with the lot of the fishes to be aggregated on the foreground.The building on the right lead the eye on the far end of the scene on the houses of the hill that dominates the backdrop.
mohammad_H (9170) 2012-02-13 2:53
This beautiful image with light sedation is recorded thanks
ChrisJ (96522) 2012-02-13 7:10

Merhaba arkadaşın ... güzel yansımalar,
renk ve ışık kontrolü ile ilginç bir vuruş iyi,
Selamlar ve mutlu bir akşam.

les paysages de Turquie sont très différents d'une région à l'autre pour une même saison, tantôt la neige et le froid, tantôt comme ici, une franche impression d'été.
J'aime la teinte chaude des pierres et la palette des bleus.
abmdsudi (42528) 2012-03-13 6:31
The depth created is lovely and the way the water lines takes the eyes diagonally all the right way into the far end. Marvelous rich colors, the contrasting foreground you've left in and the vast expanse. The reflection in crystal water and everything there seems to merge harmoniously with good scale reference. But the water reflection imo is obviously the focal point. A really very fine shot, Congrats
Sonata11 (33225) 2012-03-24 18:45
what a lovely and charming image of this place wonderfully executed with fantastic POV, DOF,perspective, beautiful colors, sharpness, fantastic and marvellous picture. I love it this moody scene. Perfectly well done. Awesome !!!
All the best and have a nice WE,
