Let's enter the city through the famous main gate of the city: Tetrapylon . As all Roman emporors did it once upon a time ahen they were ruling the city.
Tetra meens in Greek "four" . And the two part of this marvellous gate stays on 4x4 marble pillars; each of them very unique samples of Roman marble carving.
On that link (o former entry of mine here at TE) you can see how the gate looks like :
Gelin biz de Afrodisyas'a yapacağımız bu yeni tur'a, Romalı imparatorların yaptığı gibi, şehrin anıtsal kapısı Tetrapilon'dan giriş yapalım.
Tetra Yunancada dört demek. Kapının iki tarafı 4x4 sütun üzerine kurulmuş. Ve bu mermer sütunlar özel taşçı tornalarında işlenmiş olup, mermer işçiliğinin en güzel örnekleri.
Ağağıdaki link'de bu kapının tamamını gösteren eski bir kare'mi görebilirsiniz.

Aphrodisias was one of my favourites places on our visit to Turkey. This is a great POV to show off the grand gate.

A splendid built old gate, it's difficult to see the marble columns, I thought white stone to see, but you are a specialist of the area.
Taken with a vertical perspective.
Splendid composition, excellent captured.
Very well done, TFS.

A nice way to show this splendid gate . Like the pov and soft colors. The background with blue sky is great.

I love your POV on this, and the ruins looking so skeletal add to the whole ruined feel of the shot. Lovely capture. TFS!

As I liked this place when I visit ...., your wonderful picture reminds me again and enjoy the breathtaking view of this construction.
Very well managed the slight backlight, which gives a nice range of light and dark, color fantastic.
I wish you a good eating week from Madrid where we, storms, rain and cool weather.

you've capture the grandeur of the ancient entrance in a fabulous and most effective way placing it against the sky. There's a magical lighting under the passing cloud, which you've captured really well achieving superb clarity, chromatic tones and contrasts. The quality of the marble and details of the architecture, the passing of time are clearly distinguished for the viewer to admire. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

I would enter the city of Aphrodisia with pleasure, and if you could be my guide there, it would be wonderful. I hope it will happen somewhen.. Superb composition, so symmetrical and with wonderful colours.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Le choix du cadrage est parfait pour magnifier ce joyau architectural.
C'est avec un réel plaisir que nous pouvons contempler ce monument.
Très bon rendu général.

I like the slight distortion to perspective in this superb wide angled view. The central vertical are well positioned with the sides at both left & right tilted. Exactly what I would have done. Good sharpness & shadow detail & nice repetition of the old Roman era columns. Tfs!

very beautiful these ruins. I liked the way you framed the arch and gate, nice details of this ancient architecture.
