This is the second and most famous temple of Aphrodisias : the Sebasteion !
After two days of heavy rain, sun shined again and the temple was been crowned for just a few minutes with an amazing rainbow !
Bu kare, Afrodisias'ın ikinci ve en önemli tapınağı olan Sebasteion !
İki gün durmadan yağan yağmurdan sonra güneş açtı, ve muhteşem bir gökkuşağı, tapınağı birkaç dakikalığına taçlandırdı !

A fabulous moment, and a very nice angle. The fact that the rainbow starts from the focus point of the colonnade is wonderful.
My nit-pickings would be the darker areas around the top of the rainbow. I might prefer to crop slightly from the foreground as well.

Wow! So peaceful composition with the rainbow, excellent presentation of the ruins of the Aphrodisias temple. Fine DoF, an attractive asymmetric composition. TFS!

Turkey has some very interesting ancient monuments but you had perfect timing, to enrich them even more with this colourful rainbow.
A fine pov uses the converging lines to draw the viewer from the f/g, past the colonnades, to the end of the rainbow. (I wonder if there will be a pot of gold there!)
Have a lovely day,

Merhaba, my friend Mesut,
I like the elegant and deep perspective of this fantastic temple, which you have caught by means of a good framing.
The light and the colors of the photo are very well managed, its aesthetic quality is very high.
The sky and the clouds are very beautiful, and the presence of the rainbow is an ideal complement for this nice composition.

Stunningly beautiful shot with interesting architecture, nature and amazing rainbow. Spectacular shot. Wonderfully executed with splendid colors, sharpness, clarity, POV and DOF too. Marvellous photo job. An excellent work.
All the best,

The perfectly captured rainbow almost steals the show from the magnificent ruins. It adds spectacular colours to what would have been a captivating scenery in any case.

Merhaba Mesut abi,
ben 1976 yilinda Afrodisias'a ugradim. Ama gösterdigin Stebasteion tapinagini görmedim. Herhalde o yilda hala yer altinda yatmis. Resimdeki gökkusagi fotoyu güzellestirir.

Hello Mesut ,
Something is a litle intriguing : I've never seen a rainbow with such a sky .
This is a splendid view of this old ruins . The angle of view , the composition and teh exposure are perfect . I like teh contrast of the white stones with the greenery .
yquem46 (38750) 2012-05-22 13:13
A nice shot of Aphrodisias in itself
To me the rainbow is almost too much in the compo and looks a bit unnatural in its colors, especially the green part
Otherwise excellent picture
francio64 (39888) 2012-05-22 13:28
bella vista del tempio (purtroppo in rovina).
Il POV è ben scelto e ricco di elementi.
L'arcobaleno è come la ciliegina sulla torta :))

willperrett (10339) 2012-05-23 1:53
The ground looks dry to me and there are no visible rainclouds: are you sure you didn't pop this rainbow in with Photoshop?? Be that as it may, this is a good photograph of a great location, with the line of pillars offering a real sense of depth.

Hello dear Mesut,
this is a fascinating part of the archeological site, the ruins give us a good idea of the magnificence of the ancient town. There's excellent clarity and the light has been mastered very skillfully on the bright white of the marbles and the lovely natural colours of the environment. The rainbow is a playful and impressive addition in this wonderful picture where the role of perspective is prominent and captivating. Well done and thank you!
All the best,

See photos of the remains of the antique city. Its transparency, clarity, colors and viewing angle is excellent also. It has a beautiful double rainbow image.
